    Like to fish for muskies and salmon. But any day on the water is a good one. Have a cottage on Pigeon Lake.

  1. Spring Fishing Show.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Will wait for the bigger Sportsman show I think. Hopefully will be better.
  2. Anyone here drive a BMW 325i?

    Unless you are locked into rear wheel drive think about a used Scion or Lexus. Considerably more reliable and also fun to drive.
  3. Took 20 years but finally a wall-mounter!

    Outstanding! Caught a lot of big girls on Pigeon but nothing near 11 lb. Well done!
  4. Spring Fishing Show.

    Just checked. It’s in 2 wks. Fri-Mon. Family day weekend. International Centre. Malton
  5. Dismembered my minn kota

    Sail stores have periodic sales. Last one was 20% off everything. Then in fine print 10 or 15 % off trolling motors. Will be sales during fishing/Sportsman Show.
  6. A post with no pictures

    A salute A doctor in St John's Newfoundland wanted to get off work and go hunting, so he approached his janitor. "I am goin' huntin' tomorrow Buddy and don't want to close the clinic. I want you to take care of the clinic and take care of all my patients and I'll give you fifty bucks." "Yes, sir!" answers Buddy The doctor goes hunting and returns the following day and asks: "So, Buddy, How was your day?" Buddy told him that he took care of three patients. "The first one had a Headache so I gave him TYLENOL." "Bravo Buddy! The second one?" asks the doctor. "The second one had a bad stomach and I gave him MAALOX, sir." says Buddy "Bravo, bravo! You're good at this and what about the third one?" asks the Doctor "Well Sir, I was sitting here having a smoke and suddenly the door flies opens and a woman enters. Like a flame, she undresses herself, taking off everything including her bra and her panties and lies down on the table and shouts: HELP ME - I haven't seen a man in over two years "Lard Tunderin' Yeezus, Buddy!!! What did you do?" I put drops in her eyes!!

  8. Purchasing a used boat from a dealer % rate

    Did anybody mention that HELOC can be unsecured or secured? The rates are much better to have one secured by your home. But to get one will cost you an appraisal. Might be $4-600. If you have other business with the same bank like RRSP, credit cards and checking account you are a valued customer and can negotiate fees and interest rates. Provided you have been wise with your debt and made regular payments. Just know the banks are nervous about the ridiculous real estate prices if you have a big mortgage. Say over 70% of the property value. If you can’t pay they get your house and have to sell it. Maybe after a housing correction. and take a bath. Buy a quality used boat, take a test drive and have a tech look at the engine. If it hits the fan you can always sell it. A used good boat won’t deprecated much if you look after it. Don’t forget the cost of boat ownership Fuel, maintenance, insurance, tow vehicle, storage and foot itis. Be patient watch the market and pull the trigger when the right boat comes up. Hard to do Just sayin.
  9. Couple get parasites in their feet in Carribean

    So, just to clarify. Hookworms are small worms that used to be common in people in the old days. Dogs and other mammals have them too. But hookworms are species specific in that adult worms only live in the intestines of their designated hosts. But baby hookworms(larvae) from say dogs , can still penetrate human skin and cause local problems. But can’t get to the gut to live and lay eggs to perpetuate their life cycle. Us vets recommend dogs to be on regular parasite control that includes hookworms. Lots of stray dogs in the third world that have no parasite control. Crapping all over the place. Including beaches it seems ?

  11. Went up to Buckhorn area to check the cottage today. Beautiful weather but was surprised at how little snow there was. Just a dusting out in the open. Few inches in the woods. Gannon Narrows wide open as is the water above and below Buckhorn Falls for quite a ways. Crazy winter.
  12. DIY Trading/Investing

    No matter how you will invest, beware of the overheated US market. Investing requires patience and a long term view. Novices often get in too late in an up cycle and then bail when the inevitable down turn comes losing their shirts just sayin
  13. Navionics for iphone

    Does anybody know how accurate the GPS is on an iPhone with the app? Would it be as good as a sonar/GPS unit?
