  1. Good plan. Will have those for sure.
  2. Howdy. Thinking of getting out on the hardwater this year, and thinking of getting a floatation suit. Not much experience with them. I have worn 1 before with a charter, it was bulky. The mustangs are awesome, but cant quite afford them. Any experience with these: https://www.amazon.com/Eskimo-Lockout-Fishing-Jacket-S-5XL/dp/B0719STDF5/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8&th=1 Are bibs required for floatation or do they just keep you warm?
  3. Sounds like I have no other choice but to try this. I'll get'r done, thanks!
  4. Howdy, I've got an inflatable boat from Achilles that sprung a leak last year. I did a DIY repair that got me through the season, but it's leaking again. i'll probably just try another DIY repair after calling the place in Oakville, they wanted $100+ an hour + materials. Wouldn't give me a fixed price(on a patch?). Anybody know a place or person that might be a reasonable cost? I'm in Niagara, so hopefully some place nearby..
  5. Thanks for the tip! Cant wait to get out there...
  6. Thanks for the tip Dave. Hoping that I can get the kids into a few bass, they would love it. If no bass we may go on the hunt for squaretails. Does anyone know Are you allowed a motor in the river/lake?
  7. Howdy! I was lucky enough to find a last minute trip to Bonnechere PP. Been dying to get out and fish! I've never been here, does anyone have experience fishing there? It looks like there is a river that runs through the park that dumps into round lake. I have a zodiac with a 9.9 Are motors allowed on the river, or do I need to launch somewhere else?
  8. Thanks. Do you mean Frontenac Provincial Park, or the area in general?
  9. Howdy! It just worked out that I have some time off mid - late august. I know it's last minute but I'm hoping to get out for 4 - 5 days with the family for some relaxation and maybe to do a little fishing. Being that it's so late, most of the (well known) provincial parks are full. Hoping to find somewhere quiet to bring the trailer(within 3-4 hours of Toronto, maybe a bit more if it's worth it) do a little fishing with the kids. Any suggestions? I have a small zodiac, being able to fish from that would be a bonus.
  10. Wow, is that a tarp tent? Looks great! And great catch!

This is the top of the line float tube -- It is in very good condition and has only been used about 10 times. Very comfortable and stable. Has room to bring a small cooler, great for all day fishing.

  12. Howdy all. I've fished this lake hardwater before, but never softwater. I'm going to be staying at the south end of the lake, and have access to a small boat/motor(too small to go all around the lake but can fish a few small bays maybe). Is there anywhere near there I could get a few pan fish to keep the kids happy? Either from the boat or shore.
  13. There are actually several 26 foot with 12 foot (give or take) garages. I just dont know much about them. and yes I know how many campgrounds are, but was hoping there was someplace I can take it..or else will just get another travel trailer.
  14. Nobody was surprised more than me. They told me they have to wait 2 - 4 weeks for the police investigation. If they did not locate the trailer, then they need to replace with a 2018 with similar specs. I guess we'll see. If they are going to replace the trailer, i'll do without the trip.
  15. Got a call the other night, the bro-in-law asked if I had taken my trailer home that I had parked on his property. I could only imagine what he was getting at...yep, it was GONE. They cut the chain and off with it in the middle of the night... So if someone offers you a great deal on 2012 KZ Sportsmen... Anyway, I called the insurance and I had no idea but apparently they need to replace it with a 2018 with similar specs. We have an option of upgrading, though we need to wait 2-4 weeks for the police to finish their "investigation", so our July trip is off I have an ATV I like to bring, so I was thinking about a toy hauler. My problem is, I don't know of anywhere to camp and ATV. (i usually camp in central Ontario)I figured this might be a good place to ask. Any suggestions? We loved our KZ, but no matter where we brought it, it seemed to attract mice! That sucks. Not sure if any types/models are better in this regard. I know nothing about toy haulers. Oh, and I haul with a half-ton, so Id like to keep it between 24 - 26 ft. Here is a picture of our trailer. Some great family memories, the kids were devastated to hear it was gone.. RIP trusty sportsmen
  16. Although possible, I don't see how it could be private, as : 1. There were several homesteads on the road 2. The road is a through road that connects 2 rural highways 3. There were no signs indicating such I think ironworker said it right "You would think they were the ones that fought their way North to the safety of Upper Canada in 1776 and in 1812." These people aren't hurting for money, Large house, fancy vehicle, etc -- I just think they don't like "our kind" around.
  17. Good point. I guess I dont know the laws/bylaws all that well.
  18. Yes, that's exactly what this was. I'm angry that she released the animals to come chase us. If my children were with me(they weren't this time but often are), this would have ended very very badly.
  19. Well boys, a bit of a rant here. Was out this weekend with the guys doing a little trout fishing... Got into a few as well! Weird because with the windstorm on Saturday, there were trees dropping all around us, but we toughed it out. Sunday, not so good. Buddy fell down on the bank and smashed his knee good on a rock. He couldn't walk much so we figured we'd hit some of the easily accessible areas from the road. We looked at a map and found an area that crossed the road. We drove there, and buddy fished from the culvert at the road. The land was posted so we let him fish the pool while the other 2 chatted for a bit. About 2 minutes later we heard a bunch of crazy barking and saw 3 large dogs about 150 yards away on the road b-line it to us...Poor buddy with the knee had to limp to the truck and barely made it.. They got to the car and started climbing up the doors...(found a nice scratch after). We saw the owner so we waited for her to approach. We were just fishing just wanted her crazy dogs gone and we would continue on fishing. So we spoke to her and explained we just wanted her to get control of her dogs and we would continue fishing at the road. She tried to tell us that the reason the dogs swarmed us was because we were on a ":private road". I explained that we weren't on a private road as we were on a road clearly marked on a map and with a street name (that included the name of the township). There were no signs other than "No winter maintenance beyond this point" -- and that was way past the point we were fishing in. The road is a through road and connects two rural highways. An argument ensued, and we just decided to let it go. We were in a small township and figured this lady knew the local fuzz, and even though we did absolutely nothing wrong - We'd somehow end up with trouble. Pretty rattled about it, just wanted to rant. Hope your weekend was better.
  20. I thought that's the way it was too. But someone told me it is not. If the owner bought the ATV, then later put it up to get another loan, it does not show up on the title - but you may be on the hook for it..or so they say.
  21. Hi, looking to buy I used ATV, but I know these days you need to be careful. I see that you can do an online lien search, but a someone I know told me that he did that (vin was clear) and had a bailiff show up to repo his machine because the previous owner put up the machine for collateral when he got a loan for a house reno. He lost his job and couldnt make payments.. Is there any truth to this...and how do you avoid it?
  22. Thanks fisherman! Seems like a good place. Is it suitable for a family stay too?
