  1. I could use a beach day...or week... nice trip!
  2. I'm not wasting one moment of my hunting season chasing cormorants unless there is a bounty The government should have grown some balls on this one and done a cull or egg kill years ago before it became a problem. Instead of taking the PR hit they are hoping hunters will do their dirty work And have no issues with hunters looking bad instead of themselves.
  3. Glad to hear good to see ya arround again
  4. Nice... its pretty much the only fish in ontairo I have never boated. Going to have to give it an honest go one of these times.
  5. Bird 525 head unit Have power and transducer but transducer bracket is mangled. Easy to rig up for ice fishing. Trade for 6 beers located in kitchener.
  6. No sir that's a sailboat while trolling lake o.
  7. I have some Coldwater with 5-6 seasons under there belt still holding up well. Yet to blow up a convector but some are on last legs.
  8. Will look into the striper fishing did a fair bit when I lived I NC. Was hoping to get offshore for some real big stuff. I'm going to call a few charters next week see what they say. I'll be in shediac sp? . NW of Moncton love to jig up some cod or tuna if there is even a recreational season.
  9. Had a pal move out to live beside the ocean. Im going to head out for two weeks the 3rd week on Sept. Anyone local to let me know what's biting that time of year wanting to do an ocean charter.
  10. Did you get ipiot? Assuming you did. I generaly use mine in auto pilot mode where it will maintain a heading helps cut down on the fiddling with the footpedal when working a section of shorline I find the standard a.p. works better than the advanced for this.
  11. I keep saying i'm going to do a fly in need to get off my arse. Looks like a great time
  12. Is this like I base camp with a bunch of back lakes nearby? Sounds like a cool place
  13. Yep go to tactic in the spring up there bombing the shoreline with spinners think 2-5 fow. Spoons work too. I tried some crazy stuff after having a 24 inch brookie smoke a 6 inch swim bait while pike fishing on the firs day this year and found when they are hungry they do enjoy lager baits. Now have some new tricks up my sleeve
  14. After a few years off we trecked north on our pilgrimage for monster Brookies. Fuel prices be dammed. Arrived to find Temps and weather about week ahead of when we usualy arrive I have never seen Temps in the 50's while fishing here. Water was also up a foot or two . No monsters this year but lots of good fish to keep us busy all species were fairly cooperative throughout the week. The brookies were off a little with the warmer Temps realy had to work for em compared to water Temps in the in the 30's and 40's . The Lakers were unlimited in supply and a blast in 6-10 fow on lighter spinning gear, couldn't hookup with the big ones were we have had luck in the past down deeper. Pike were in super skinny water and super aggressive on top water at times making fishing fun but resulting in more dropped fish than hookups. 24" Brookie 44" Pike and 32" Laketrout being the best for the week. Great week to disconnect and recharge with 3 of my best friends and my Dad Pretty sure we took a 14 ft boat where no 14 ft boat has ever been on this trip for those who know the lake we had 3 days of glass and made the most of it with some runs up to 30km each way. However the small boat was never out of sight from the big boat when too far from camp. Enough of me talking here's some pics .
  15. I hear ya I have owned both tandem and single axle boat trailers . Tandem pulls so much nicer. I feel like the additional cost is worth the investment.
  16. Can confirm wawa did not have 24 hr gas 3 years ago... I rolled the dice and coasted into the Sault on the way home.. had a half tank in the boat figured we would figure a way ro get it out if we needed it.
  17. 19.5 ft Boat kicker and trailer are likely pushing the 3300lb combined rating of the tires at max pressure 60 psi. Add in some camping gear and 2 coolers were likely over. Tires were in good looking condition and gets trailered regularly a few hundred k. To erie and lake o without the extra gear. It's time for another axle and 2 more Tires.
  18. there not tiny by any means boats not in the driveway currently.
  19. Anyone recommend where to get another axle and equalizer hangers? Long story short had 2 explosive blow outs on the way home from Nipigon one in White Lake and one in French River lucky we had 2 spares with us. It's a 19.5 ft aluminum sitting on a single axle currently running d rated tires the biggest I can stuff in the fenders. About 5-6000 km on them with no issues so far could have just been their time but rather not go through it again. With the kicker and some gear in the boat I'm getting to much heat in the tires I think. I'm pretty handy should be able to figure it out if someone can walk me through what parts to order. Thinking I will add brakes while I am in there. I've looked at used trailer prices seems like I will save a few grand doing it myself over buying a decent used trailer and selling this one if I can get the parts for arround $1500-2
  20. I also recommend Nikko @ Robs5star Been fishing with him before it was Rob's summer and winter. Always more than accommodating caught my pb walleye out of his huts.
