  1. Who remembers this shack? Who's backyard is missing one? https://www.mynorthbaynow.com/29451/abandoned-ice-fishing-hut-found-on-lake-nipissing/ Cheers, Mark
  2. $3,000 fine for over double limit

    We all take in information and filter it through our prism of lifetime experiences and personal biases. This thread was supposed to be about some enforcement for once. Most of all this frustration stems from lack of enforcement. We see habitual poachers, call it in and nothing changes. Be it buckets or the gong show the river fisherman have to endure during the spawning runs for Trout in the spring and especially the fall Salmon run, or others. Poaching with impunity and seemingly few repercussions. Little to zero enforcement breeds more frustration. We play by the rules and respect the resource for future opportunities but see others abusing at will. I was glad that some enforcement was taking place. Although, the punishment seemed low, I guess there would be less guilty pleas if the vehicle was taken and fines where higher. I am glad Dutch has called in the habitual abusers he has encountered when he night fishes. He must know first hand the frustration that results after nothing changes even after he has repeatedly called it in. Cheers, Mark
  3. At least they caught him. Ice fishing on Georgian Bay. https://www.muskokaregion.com/community-story/8389929-man-caught-with-more-than-double-allowed-fish-ice-fishing-georgian-bay/
  4. NF - Best Penetrating fluid?

    Yep. Believe it to be this Universal Bracket (KD 180 U) http://kwikdox.ca/products/plates/#!
  5. NF - Best Penetrating fluid?

    Some dock hardware. Gangway that attaches to dock and has a post sleeve on the land end. Post sleeve is held in place on post with through bolt. SS bolt threads though sleeve. Sleeve is Galvanized with threaded insert(SS maybe). Bolt head torqued off at threaded insert. Worst case scenario, I cut off sleeve from post and replace with new sleeve. Wanted to try removing the bolt first. Get yer head out of the gutter. (lol) Not positive if it is yet. Maybe SS or Galv. Thanks
  6. NF - Best Penetrating fluid?

    Thanks for the input and thanks Dan. It really suggest it is a two part question but, it got me thinking if there was a superior penetrating fluid. Helping a buddy at his cottage and wanted to bring all that I would need to cover my bases. Hopefully backs out first go but, he has already monkeyed with it a bit with little success. Mark
  7. Figured I would ask....tons of experience on this board. What is the best penetrating fluid available to aid removing a compressed broken off SS bolt? Heard good things about Kroil, except where it might be available. Saw the ATF/Acetone 50/50 mix story too. Anyone use this? Thanks in advance, Mark

  13. Long overdue fishing session

    Well done. Sounds like a good day all around. How did you find the conditions? Slush? How thick was the ice? Walking? Thanks in advance, Mark Sorry, edit to add, probably going to hit that lake myself this week depending on conditions.
