    2018-2019 Hockey Thread

    How funny that everyone gets their knickers in a knot so quickly. "Sparks has got to go! We had Curtis McElhinney and he was the best". Curtis McElhinney is 13-6-1 with a save % of .916 and he is 35 years old. His career SP is .909 Sparks is 7-4-1 and developing. Trend line is higher. Current save percentage is .908, and it's his first fully year here. Give the guy a break, if Boston overtakes the Leafs it won't be because of Sparks.

    Well do they really need to move anyone especially now? If you replace your RFAs with internal talent half the problem is solved. Gardner, Hainsey, Innis, Lindholm, would all have to go unless they do Leaf cap friendly deals. The talent you would be interested in keeping is Sparks, Johnnson, and Kapanen...yet you have $5.3 on the books for Horton and another $1.2 for Kessel. Trade that debt away if need be. Horton comes off the books after next year anyways as does Marleau. If you listen to Dubas, that is his solution...internal talent to fill holes or to be used as bait in trades. He states basically they do a lot of future number crunching. Look at Pittsburg...similar boat, top 4 talent basically take up 1/2 the cap. I have no reason to doubt that Dubas can get er done. GMs now have to be great jugglers.

    Matt reminds me of the star high school quarterback...all he can talk about is glory days and everything he talks about is always referenced back to his glory days. This team sucks because they sucked when I was back in high school. Planet Earth has not stood still Matt...the past is over. Welcome to today!

    Best Pike Fishing

    I would agree with a place like Lac Seul but not Temagami or Kipawa...both deep water shield lakes. The link I offered to you for Nipigon is another option. Nipigon is a shield lake but just so massive that there are pike areas. To top it off the crusie guy would know where to go. That cruise would be an experience in itself

    Best Pike Fishing

    Kesagami is probably too expensive and too pressured for it's size and the price. I would not suggest Kipawa if big pike are the goal. They are in there for sure but it is a damned shield lake and they take water levels right down in the fall which is not good for early spring spawning. I've been to a few camps there and found no ideal habitat or had a lot of success for pike. They are in ambush spots such as narrows etc. They are caught usually when folks troll for walleye or lakers! Nipigon is huge and beautiful but also a shield lake and prime pike spots are not easily accessible. That open water can be potentially dangerous in spring and big wind can create tide like conditions on wind swept shores! They used to do a cruiser rental that you would sleep in and they would tow a few boats that you could fish in once the cruiser was anchored. Meals were provided and that would certainly be a great experience and possibly in your price range once have enough people going. I always wanted to do that trip. The cruiser operated out of the southern bay. A lake like lake of the woods might work especially in the early spring. It could be one of those situations where it is the third target species and not specifically fished as hard. Spring would be good too before the cottagers are established. It is big...never fished it.

    I've been watching YN weather forecasts...at first I thought it was in Fahrenheit until I saw the minus sign

    Big hungry pike in numbers need little harassment and bigger water. To get those conditions cost$$$. I'd consider going Muskie fishing in prime time....

    You sound like a Leaf fan of old. When you rode them all the down your pony is taking it all in. Karma bud! I try not to bash any fan except Habs fans. Cowboy and Yankee fans are less obnoxious.

    In the stock market everybody is a genius in good times. Brag to me in bad times. Wait everybody loses in bad times.
  11. I've been fighting crab grass for years, read this thread about a week ago and bought this. I may not be winning the war on weeds but I sure am having fun doing battle. It gives off a real hot flame...shoots out about 4 inches and when you turn it off it makes a very satisfying noise. Perfect for you closet pyros out there. https://www.homedepot.ca/en/home/p.lawn-and-garden-propane-torch.1001002719.html

    Beauty of Lake Kipawa Quebec + 1 fish!

    Exactly...Temagami say 50 years ago? You are not going there to catch big fish although it does happen....it is just that laid back lifestyle and a huge body of water to explore. You can go hours without seeing a boat. I don't fish for walleye unless I have too....tried it briefly before the kids came to make sure we woudl catch. Leeches were the ticket. We were down Laniel way...got to fish around Strawberry island and past the "Farm" almost down to Hay "river". The price was right, we have friends up there so a little fishing in the evening and in the morning if I went to bed at a decent hour. There was stuff to do. So yeah...jigging may be next time especially if the fishing gets no better. On this trip I had no big expectations so was simply happy to boat on this fine peace of real estate and take it all in. Bunk, not every trip is a big fish trip, eh? I'd also recommend Kipawa Lodge...the cooking is fabulous. Took my wife who had been stressed out by her father's cancer. She breathed.

    Beauty of Lake Kipawa Quebec + 1 fish!

    I'd never say Kipawa is a great Lake trout fishery but usually you could dial it in and catch a few per outing. Keepers at about 26 inches?...usually you could catch one a week. This time was tougher. No consistency in catching and getting skunked happened about every third or forth outing. That was unusual. We had the massive pollen dump...you can actually see about a 3 inch line on the rocks of pollen as the lake lowered. Then some unsettled weather and then the heat. I'll take stability any time...give me consistent conditions. Floater, one thing you may have to contend with is poor air quality as the forest fires in Ontario are still burning. Kipawa got soaked when that last storm front went through.
  15. The weather was wild this time around...not so good for fishing but great for photography. I never caught one large enough for the laker slot and I didn't even bother measuring any of them. I'd say biggest was about 20iches. The only fish picture I have is this fish on my 3rd outing to prove I had caught fish. Roughly on average a fish per 2-3 hours...pretty slow. The rest of pics are of sunsets or cloud formations. Enjoy [/url] My wife came up for the second week. We ran into a heat wave. Fires are still burning in the area. Hope you enjoyed the pics.
