  1. They couldn’t beat me last spring brother, they won’t beat me this spring. I made a small trailer out of bike tires so I could strap the back end of my tinny to it and wheel right past the closed launches and down the bank. That, and with marinas specifically named as being allowed to operate (including launches) I’ll be fishing one way or the other!
  2. Just port hope being port hope. They’d fill the river in with cement if they could.
  3. Dollars to donuts they’ll have status cards if their obvious about it. Same thing happens at Buckhorn every year.
  4. Yes I will be, no I’ll be with one or more of my sons.
  5. Maybe so, my town is one town over from a tourist trap. Whenever I drive through on a weekend the only thing I curse is the traffic it generates. Otherwise I’m glad to see the shops busy and local businesses making money. The only thing I don’t like about City people is when they move out and decide they want things to be like they where in the city. A few weeks back at a town council they where discussing bike lanes. We need that like we need a hole in our heads. The only people that ride bikes around here to get places are of an age where sidewalk riding is perfectly acceptable. Leave the city ideas in the city and all is well!
  6. Yes, this is true, but we feel this way at any time of year, pandemic or not 😀😀😆😊😂😜. (And if they smilies weren’t enough, for greater clarity, I’m just having fun)
  7. Live your life according to what you think is best. Stop worrying what other fishermen think. You’ll only get conflicting opinions.
  8. Or, you know, people could just be better. I think I’ll stick with my plan.
  9. I'm with Lew. My biggest pet peeve is people that sit around and criticize, yell at and or hassle people that clearly don't know what they are doing rather than offer assistance. My second biggest pet peeve at boat launches is guys that have egos so large that they can't accept help when they clearly need it.
  10. I've been in the boat 3 times already. Sadly less time to fish than I'd like at the moment.
  11. Sweet ride, Was just shopping side by sides with my Mom yesterday. We're looking at the Honda Pioneer 520 for the place up north. Was looking at another bike, but this seems the logical choice and easier for Mom or my Wife to buzz around in while still making it down the smaller trails. They seem to prefer the idea of a steering wheel too. I looked at Camso tracks though and they're $4500. Thats a lot of scratch for a set of tracks.
  12. Excellent I’m surprised they had em. Good to know
  13. I’ve used Navionics for many years. It’s was decent to start and I find them pretty good in Ontario waters these days. Occasionally they are way off but for me that’s been the exception not the rule. No experience with the other one.
  14. Considering plastics cost a couple hundred for a front or rear, I'm not surprised. Last time I was looking for plastic parts for my Yammy due to an unfortunate incident it was either dealer or ebay. You can call Royal, but I want to guess they don't stock plastics or lights. Given how popular that Grizzlys are they probably have some aftermarket stuff on ebay.
  15. I had a 1997 Chevy 1500 that gave me good service and is one of my favourite body styles and drives of any 4x4 truck I’ve ever been in. I had 11 good years out of my 2010 F150 that replaced the Chevy and I had very few issues. So either way I really couldn’t say one was better or worse than the other. Both where gassers. I can’t speak much to the diesels but a buddy of mine did have a Ford 6 litre diesel circa 2006 that ate a couple of head gaskets and gave him some trouble. He plowed with it and used it as a work truck though so it didn’t lead an easy life. I thought I’d try the dodge this time and see what happens.
