  1. I sure don't think I could pull myself out if I broke through. This is such a sad story. Feeling for the family. Stay safe people.
  2. I know many have mentioned Emily Park, but the lake is getting a super amount of pressure this year and the fishing is suffering from my experience. Pick a nice small lake in Haliburton County around West Guilford, you will enjoy the lower amount of boat traffic and no deer flies.
  3. I thought I would try for some crappie the other day. No crappie, but ran into this girl.
  4. I got a nice surprise on my last outing to Simcoe. It was released to surprise some one else.
  5. Some that got off half way up eventually came to the top and the birds scooped them.
  6. A week ago I was enjoying the warmth of Costa Rica, now it's ice time. Got out in zone 18 over the past weekend and got lucky to get a few tasties for the table.
  7. It was a workout, that's for sure! They would hit as soon as the bait hit the bottom.
  8. Thanks Lew. I was only able to do that because 2 amazing fellow anglers invited me to go with them. Us Canadians are amazing to each other!
  9. Was in Costa Rica recently on a last minute trip. Had some fun fishing with guys I met down there. I even caught a jack off the beach and lost some others. We did the best fishing in 400 feet of water, lol. We let the guys that took us out bring the fish to market to make some extra cash for themselves.
  10. My suggestion is to find a place that has you stay in a cottage with all the amenities, then have them take you out to your hut for the day. Much more comfortable after a long day of fishing, more room to spread out and you can even have a shower. I don't find night fishing that great through the ice.
  11. Nothing will change with the Leafs until the philosophy changes and there are only two ways to do that. Dubas and Babs have to go (Chris already said it). It's the same thing every game.
  12. Nice fish! I should get back into taxidermy if that's what people are willing to pay now. It must have made a beautiful mount.
  13. Thanks singingdog. It is a very enjoyable area to fish in the fall.
  14. https://scugoglakestewards.com/ There are still walleye in that lake. I believe any lake that is within 2 hours of Toronto is fished heavily and has an impact on fish populations. Yes, people will say it's the introduction of Crappie or global warming, etc, but the lakes are definitely busier these days. I haven't heard much about the muskie lately. Just my opinion.
  15. Do you mind if I ask how much you paid for them?
  16. We stayed at Bear's Den. The walleye wouldn't cooperate either. That's fishing though!
  17. Thanks Cliff, I will. The weird thing is one of the guys has a couple of cottages on a nice lake east of Parry Sound and we were joking that we would have did better there. However, there are no muskie in the lake.
  18. None taken Ohio. I even mentioned to the guys before the trip that the fishing probably won't be what they expect and maybe we will have better success in another location. The response was that it's not always about the fishing. I agreed and joined them. The potential for one of those giant muskie is what drew us there. I have fished for muskie many years and have had many skunks and many exceptional days, it's just the way it is. It is a long drive though when traveling alone.
  19. Hey Ohio - This has happened a number of times for me years ago and I stopped going. Just couldn't resist the invite to get away.
  20. We have fished the French years ago, more down towards the lake and did well the first year, but results declined from there and we stopped going. Two of the guys that were with us were there a few weeks back and did very well with the muskie and landing one over 50" ; also catching a few others over 40".
  21. Those tigers are awesome looking. Even the markings of the regular muskie are nice in St. Clair.
  22. Between Hartley Bay Marina and Atwood Resort, whatever that is.
  23. The fishing isn't very good. 8 guys, 4 boats, 3 full days and only a hand full of snot rockets. Not really worth it. Beautiful scenery, but I have seen it many times. We are all considering another option for the next time we get together.
