  1. Crowman is correct about using the Arrivecan app. Download the app on your phone. If you can't download the passport then just fill out the blanks. You can take a picture of your proof of vaccination and upload it.. When I returned to Canada from the US last week , they didn't even ask for my Arrivecan and I'm assuming that it's because they had all my info when they ran my passport through their system. Play safe and bring your paper copy of the proof of vaccination. Here's the link to the Arrivecan app: https://arrivecan.cbsa-asfc.cloud-nuage.canada.ca/en/welcome
  2. Hello everyone. Every year my friends that I have known since childhood get together for a weekend of fishing. Now this year for the first time we are going to try Buckhorn Lake in the Kawarthas, in mid October and we're staying at Scotsman Point Resort. We'd love any feedback on what the fishing is like on Buckhorn particularly that time of year. Thanks in advance! Dave
  3. I've fished the French River many times before and yes it is beautiful and the fishing is usually great!I will google campgrunds in the French River area.Since this post I looked into at Balsam Lake Provincial Park and Silent lake PP both seem nice and good for fishing. Now I'm not doing a boys hard core fishing trip which I'm doing already, but looking for nice friendly family campgrounds where I can take my canoe out and catch at least a few nice fish.
  4. Hello all!, I just bought a pop-up tent trailer and canoe and I'm planning to book some camping trips for the 2021 season. I just wanted to get some suggestions about some campgrounds (with electrical sites) that has good fishing, within 4 hours of Toronto. I am looking to book several trips next year. Appreciate any and all suggestions! Thanks in advance, Dave
  5. Thanks guys! Heading there this Thursday and will be able to scratch this off my fishing bucket list !!
  6. Sounds good. Thanks! Any particular size/ colour for the Shad raps?
  7. I'm almost ashamed to admit this ( lol), but I'm fishing Quinte for the first time at Hay Bay. We're staying at Bayview on Hay Bay cottages next weekend and I was hoping I could get a few pointers. Wondering if it's a bit to early for walleye as friends have suggested that later in the Fall is better. I read a post that the Uzzick spinner works great but I can't find a single place around the GTA that sells them. I'll try the usual trolling with raps, worm harnesses and some spinners. Thanks in advance, Dave
  8. Please don't get me wrong. I LUUUV smallies. And I'll most definitely do my usual small/ largemouth fishing this year. But because walleye seem to be more elusive, it has triggered me to go for them. I've caught my lunker bass, musky , pike, trout and salmon. But the big pic has always eluded me and I'm almost obsessed to getting one. If Quinte doesn't work out great this year. I'll likely try some place a little north of Temagami. But that would be a post for next year! LOL!!
  9. Thanks for the feedback and although it sucks that you're saying that the pick/ walleye fishing has gone down in Quinte but that ain't stopping us from trying. We'll try the usual using erie dearies, worm harnesses, jigging and crank baits ( my favourite for walleye are the perch imitations) and if the bite is bad, I guess I'll have to go for Pike. At the end of the day, I'll have a blast with the boys and then I could finally proudly say that I fished Quinte and scratch that off my fishing bucket list!! Lol!! I do sincerely appreciate the feedback on general locations as I've never been there before. I don't know how far a boat ride to Hay Bay from Picton on a 25 hp, but my friends say it was great there even though that was many years ago. Thanks fellaz!
  10. As an avid Ontario Fisherman I'm almost ashamed to admit that I've never fished Quinte. So to tick this off my fishing bucket list, I booked our little 12th annual friendly fishing tourney at Merland Park cottages near Picton in the Bay of Quinte. We booked the June 8th weekend as opener and everything near opener was fully booked in the area. Now I'm by no means a rookie walleye fisherman, but I usually don't like fishing on larger bodies of water but we could use any friendly suggestions especially since this is my first time in the area. Thanks in advance, Dave
  11. Hello all, A friend of mine has a nice cottage on Crowe Lake, Marmora. Unfortunately he doesn't have a boat. Would anyone know of a marina or someone who might rent boats and motors on Crowe Lake? Also does anyone know what species of fish are in the lake so I can plan accordingly? Thanks in advance, Dave
  12. Hello folks, I'm looking for a reasonably priced fishing cottage resort for a friendly tournament with my boys for the opening of walleye May 13th to the 15th in the Kawarthas. I've fished Sturgeon Lake (near Pleasant Point) but my usual place is booked solid and I don't mind trying some place new and expanding my walleye horizons! LOL! Of course not expecting anyone to give up their honey holes but if you could suggest some general areas for the "picks", I'm sure we 'll find our way around! Thanks in advance, "DR" Dave.
  13. I used to buy them at Walmart but when I bought a pair at Costco I've never used any other, They are that good. You have to go to the optical department. They are about $35 plus tax.and work great for fishing, golf, and driving.
  14. Thanks fellas for all this ample information. I have an old Hummingbird that used 2 large 6? volt batteries. I was hoping to get one that uses one big rechargeable battery. Joeytier, would love to hear your report!
