  1. I caught an big eye dragging a 10 inch Believer once. But typically fish small to medium crank baits and bucktail jigs. This one mid day today
  2. Yeah. I always check. Of the 7 I’ve kept this year all stomachs were empty.
  3. A partially digested 8 inch perch coughed up by this approximately 6 lb girl. Caught on a black and red bucktail jig.
  4. Crazy NW winds all day Friday coupled with 10 inches of higher than normal lake level has damaged a lot of shore line. Lots of wood floating by. Only good thing is no mosquitoes 😏
  5. Most fishing items 15% off. Some exclusions. Not much Shimano stuff. I was told it’s backordered.
  6. I catch way too many panfish dragging a harness.
  7. Anybody else blaming these guys for the lousy walleye bite on the Kawarthas?
  8. Lucky here on north Pigeon. Minimal damage. Power out 3 days. Our son on the south edge of Ottawa just got his power back now.
  9. Just took the boat out for a spin. 4 pm. Temps 66-68F. Water levels low for this time of year.
  10. 5/12/22 regular $1.69, ethanol free 91 $1.81
  11. It’s No to all. But I’ve heard so many stories about the hoses deteriorating with time and lining material getting into engine. I store with stabilized Shell premium in fall but use regular gas during the season. You don’t think it’s wise to change out the hose after 15 yrs?
  12. Hey Guys. Thought it’s time to replace my fuel hose. Will replace original 2007 hose and bulb. No problems. But I’m hearing the hoses deteriorate with time. Can someone guide me through the process, please. . I guess I need to cut one end of the new hose off. How does one get the air out of the line? Many thanks.
  13. Thanks Lew. Was afraid of that. I guess the Sportsman show is a go. 🤞
  14. This show is usually on Family Day weekend, I think. Can’t seem to find out if it’s on next weekend.
  15. This is nothing new but definitely getting worse. My 36 yr old son was abused by customers working the cash at McDonalds as a 15 yr old. Treated horribly by adults. He quit and didn’t ever want to work with the public again. Is an engineer now with a family of 4.
  16. Saw a guy on my Lund FB page selling his 2021 Lund. Fully loaded with every toy. 400 hp Verado. Said new it would be $140k. 😎. I shake my head.
  17. So is the hard water bite like the soft water bite with weather? Usually tough with new high pressure and blue skies? Best before a storm or after stable weather? Does it matter the species?
  18. Thanks for the advice, Guys. Here’s a little Thankyou: Four married guys go fishing. One of them was a Newfie. After an hour, the following conversation took place. First guy: " You have no idea what I had to do to be able to come out fishing this weekend. I had to promise my wife that I will paint every room in the house next weekend." Second guy: " that's nothing, I had to promise my wife that I will build her a new deck for the pool." Third guy: " Man, you both have it easy! I had to promise my wife that I will remodel the kitchen for her." They continue to fish when they realized that the Newfie has not said a word. So they asked him. "You haven't said anything about what you had to do to be able to come fishing this weekend. " What's the deal?" Newfie: " I just set my alarm for 5:30 am. When it went off, I shut off my alarm, gave the missus a nudge and said, " Fishing or Sex" and she said, " Wear a Sweater."
  19. So, if I eventually want to target whitefish, is a 6 inch hole adequate? Can you recommend an auger brand?
  20. So Gents. Been retired now for the second winter. Spent last winter at St Mikes recovering from bypass surgery. Good as new now. Was thinking of being a Snowbird and fish the Florida saltwater. But I’m thinking of taking up this hard water fishing. I’m 40 min from Simcoe. Not sure I want to spend $1-2k on tent shelter, power auger, flasher, heater etc. Watched a bunch of YouTube videos. Was wondering if I should just rent a hut with some buds or hire a guide for a day? I have 3 ice fishing rods that the grandkids use for panfish off the dock. Was going to visit a local tackle shop in Keswick or Sutton and buy some recommended lures for perch. And go out and try my luck on vacated drilled holes near shore around Virginia beach. Without shelter, would need to be a nice day. I just want to get the feel of it. Then maybe buy some used equipment end of season. What do you guys think?
  21. Hi Gents. I posted a while ago that I stepped on my Symetre reel and bent the internal handle. Took it in to Shimano in Peterborough last Thursday. Got her delivered back today. Super nice guy there to deal with. $30 for an overhaul including new handle and bearings plus $10 for shipping. I’m very impressed. That’s service 👌
