  1. Just off the shore or the pier. I thought that saltwater required special gear that could stand up to the corrosion. As far as what fish, I'm bad enough at targeting fresh water species, so I'll probably just chuck something in the water and hang on.
  2. I realise that the term might be self-contradictory, but I really don't want to blow too much money. Our son lives in Shediac, New Brunswick, and I would mind getting some fishing done whenever we get out there. Any suggestions?
  3. Close one! Have they found out yet what the actual problem was? Sounds like something you want to avoid a second time.
  4. A post like this brings it home. While some of us gripe about not being able to go camping, others have real problems. Condolences.
  5. One thing that I have often wondered about may be on the horizon; genetically based chemicals that target a specific gene sequence, unique to a species, and kill it. How close it is I cannot say, but on a recent chat with a skeptics group I chair, we had a biochemist PhD talking about various things, mostly related to COVID 19, and I asked him if the idea was possible. His reply was that there was work being done in that direction. So we may see a solution to that damned goby problem in the future, but I imagine there will be a lot of testing to be done before any of it can be put to use.
  6. Anyone planning to take advantage of the new 'catch and release only' bass season, open until May 10th? May be a dumb question, as I imagine most of us will. By doing so we'll be taking part in a scientific experiment, answering the question; will it impact the fishery or not? I'm close to Frenchman Bay, so I'll be getting the canoe out when possible.

  8. WOW! Where exactly is that, somewhere on Deep Bay Road, or Devil's Lake Road?
  9. Monica and I just had to get out of the house, so on Saturday we took a trip up to devil's Lake, near Minden. Just enough time for some lure washing and a swim before the clouds looked like they might end the day with a soaking. Nothing big was caught, but we were just glad to get out and relax on the water.

  11. Believe me, it wouldn't help. I could snag a surface plug in a swimming pool! 😅
  12. Finally replaced the fishing vest that was in the car when it was stolen last year, Doesn't have the same sentimental value that a present for the family had, but except for the colour it's exactly the same, a Bushline Aparaho. Not sure if they spell it that way on purpose, or whether they didn't know that the indigenous tribe is 'Arapaho', but whatever, I've finally got one. I prefer it to a tackle box, the only trouble is keeping certain lures, like large plugs, in cloth pockets without them hooking the fabric. Haven't found those plastic Plano lure boxes that are large enough for a lure but small enough to fit in a pocket. I'm finding that plastic pill jars are quite useful in that regard, so I'm saving them. Gradually replacing all the stuff I had in it, but it's nowhere near as heavy as the previous one yet. I got so used to the weight that when the new one arrived in a box I thought it was empty!
  13. Nice day! I gave up on those heavy tube jigs a while ago, never been able to cast one more than three times before getting hopelessly snagged and breaking it off, even with 20lb braided,
  14. The most important thing in fishing is - putting something in the water. Almost anything. Everything after that is bling.
