  1. Can't decide which has given me more pleasure (beauty aka "old faithful" - 35+ years complete with boarding stairs to help my 94 year old mother in-law get in and out) ... or the beast (can't believe she's already almost 8 years ... only got out a couple times last year and this year is looking a little iffy too) The beast ... does have a 300 litre tank ... so I suppose I could self Isolate at sea
  2. Very Sad .. he was my hero as a kid ... I also got the good fortune of watching him land more trout in a day than I did in a season, a true gentleman and one of the earliest (along with "Red") to promote fishing (especially in Ontario). RIP John
  3. And of course the roof is barely 1 season old
  4. Crap ... its always something .... sooo ... as much as it saddens me ... I wasnt going to go up to the cottage (respecting our stay at home policy ... even if it is in fact our summer home) ... but the neighbor just sent me these pics ... now I'm afraid if I don't go ... it could be raining inside ... or worse
  5. Just got this notice from the Quebec folks (we have a camp in a Zec) ...its gonna be a LONG spring "The directive from the Public Health Department is simple: Stay at home! Despite the fact that your members have a trailer, a cabin, a fishing license, a fishing or hunting package, an annual right of movement and that the public territory remains open, the public health directive is the priority and takes precedence over all law, permit or right of zec. Stay home! Camping is not authorized and organizations must inform their members and customers that the facilities are closed by order of the Public Health Department. The same directive applies to the rental of chalets, yurts and other ready-to-camp packages. Going fishing is not an activity that can justify the interruption of containment. People can leave their homes out of necessity, in an emergency or through force majeure. Spread the word to your members: Stay home!"
  6. Sorry for the double post ... but just realized the other one gotten hidden away and nobody seems to have seen it Just wondering if anyone has been out since opener on Lake Joe ... it was open water when I was up in early January ... if so would appreciate an ice report ... heading up this weekend and crossing fingers to find some safe ice Thanks

  8. I just bought two cheapo plastic "gel" chairs and put them in back to back (either side of the middle bench)... cover over the top and presto a tent ... other trick I used (for in the water) I tied a 5lb weight on either side ... just in case ... then since gravity never fails ... if water does start to pool the wieghts pull the cover back taut (my old tinny had no snaps on it so my cover was only streched over the top
  9. True ... they clean her up and "spring-ize" it before she goes in the water so I suppose I wouldn't know (what the eye doesnt see - the heart doesnt feel )
  10. Wow ... I'm close by (at Minett) ... used to wonder whether it was worth the extra few bucks storing inside (heated) which i did the first few years vs shrink wrap outside ... feeling little better about about my choice now ... guessing the insurance rates may go up this year
  11. Hi Wayne !!! ... thanks ... truth be told rather be chasing Specks somewhere up in Porcupine District ... but Muskoka lakers are tasty too... and pretty much have the lake to mself. I just read your post about the back-up camera ... I broke down and got one for my F150 ... but decided to replace my Magellen GPS with the old one that comes with the camera ... no more real estate on the dash Should have done it yesterday ...its too cold to go out and hook it up to the reverse lights ... also cant decide if I should mount it up top or on the licence plate (per the instructions)
  12. A couple of New Years lake trout... 6lbs and 2 lbs
  13. 30+ Atlantic On the Cascapedia ...with a Bogdan (preferably mine) Giant char on the Tree (with Moose as my guide) 6lb Brookie (Secret lake) through the ice (Maybe with Irish and his sledding gang) 8lb Quebec Red ... not fussy where or how or who with Ahhh... scratch all that ... just thankful for the time I do get to watch the sun come up and the mist rise off the water !
  14. First time I bellied out in my F150 ... was lucky my buddy had a winch on his F250 ...and he pulled me right out (after a couple of embarassing pics with me hip deep in mud) ... went straight home and bought a winch specifically designed to fit into that hole in your front bumper where the licence plate goes.... have only used it twice (to rescue other folks) ... but wouldnt go into the bush without it
