  1. The wait will be over on Saturday. Today Ford is announcing Marinas can start to open to the public starting Saturday. I hope the municipalities open up public launches at the same time. I would petition your councillor today.
  2. With that attitude I guess you will rarely, if ever, lose sleep. Good for you. my bet is that even if launches open up, municipalities will put some sort of restriction/by law in place to prevent out of towners from using ‘their’ boat ramps. Sad days for many reasons.
  3. Thank you everyone. I really appreciate the info
  4. Heading to Big Bald lake in a couple of weeks and wondered if anyone has any tips on the fishing and can suggest a public or private boat launch on the lake. Ill be renting a cottage located on saunders rd on the north east side of the lake. Any launches close by?
  5. Thanks for your help posting them right side up. It was hard for me to correct so I just gave up. They were 13-14 inches. It was our annual fishing trip with the guys and we decided to go to this lake this year. I have to say the fishing was really good. Plan to go back up there again next year. We got into pike, walleye and accidental large and small mouth bass. I think it has to do with the lake being very lightly fished...at least while we were there. The only thing is that it is a prop and bottom end busting lake. A couple of boats we saw hit their bottom end during our short stay. Luckily they were not going fast. I managed to leave unscathed. That lake will go from 40 feet to 1 foot in less than 20 feet. And with the higher water this year, the dangers that were previously visible are now just lying under the water.
  6. Here they are... my dad in the pic
  7. Went to Belmont Lake for a four day fishing trip with the boys. Had an awesome time fishing this lake for the first time. Here are some pics for you to enjoy...
  8. Heading up to ranger Bay Area on the French river this weekend and not sure what to expect as far as fishing goes. Anyone familiar with the area and willing to offer some advice? Thanks.
  9. When I replaced my laminate counter top from my kitchen a few years back with a different material, I posted an ad on kijiji for the free laminate counter top just so I didn't have to dispose of it. The counter top was in great shape..may want to search kijiji or craigslist for similar free counter tops. Cut a piece to fit and then just swap out the sink/plumbing. In fact, I see there a few ads on Kijiji right now offering free counter tops.
  10. thanks for the feedback...for others looking for info I did some searching on the net after the replies and found Pompano Beach has it's own pier and you don't need a fishing license if fishing on it. Even for a non-resident. The pier also sells bait and access to the pier is free. There are other piers up and down the coast with similar fishing license free zones, but you have to pay to get on them...Pompano is the only free pier I found on that stretch of area. As for the fish, it's apparently hit and miss. Mackerel, snook and even sharks can be had off the pier. Found some great youtube videos - just search Fort Lauderdale fishing piers. I'll let you know how it goes.
  11. I owned a 1992 StarCraft up until 2 years ago and it didn't leak one bit up to the day I sold it. Those rivets held tight, even after banging into docks and the like over the years - especially the latter years when I was teaching my son to boat. That was one of the reasons I replaced it with a new Smokercraft (same family as Starcraft).
  12. Heading down to Pompano Beach near the end of the month and was hoping for some ideas on where to go fishing around the area. Never been there before. Can't go out on the ocean because my wife gets sea sick (and frankly, so do I), so plan on hitting piers or other areas from land. Any suggestions on where to go and what to use/target at this time of the year?
  13. Canuck, I sent you a message about your MDX. I had the same problem with my 2007 only a few years ago and Acura covered the cost of the unit because this is a known defect. In fact, it shorted out my battery. I just paid for 1 hour labour. Happened to a friend of mine too. There are also a couple of other known issues that Acura has not outwardly admitted to in this model but will give you a break on (or repair totally), if you complain - they are the Active Damper System and the Navigation System reading error. My last repair was to all 4 of the Damper systems on my vehicle only a few months ago (keep in mind car is now 8 years old). The repair was quoted to me at $6400 + tax! Car sounded like crap - rattling front end, and seemed like it was going to fall part every time I hit a bump. regardless, I wasn't about to spend that money on a 8 year old car....But after complaining, Acura covered it all for free - labour and parts. Wouldn't have believed it if it didn't happen to me...but they did! However, keep in mind I have had this issue with this car since I bought it new and this was the 4th time they replaced the dampers...twice under warranty and twice outside the warranty - each time at no cost to me. Point is, it may be worth complaining to Acura about your issue.
  14. Managed to make 1 litre of syrup couple weekends ago using 40 liters of sap. Have collected 60 litres more since (most of it in last two days) and should get a bunch more by end of the week. Thanks for all the tips. And good luck with your batch.
