    Times have changed, fish prices 1939.

    What species would the Blue Pike in that ad have been?

    I saw one of the participants on the 2018 show in Mongolia catch several large leeches in a “fish trap” in stagnant water on this week’s episode. He ended up consuming the leeches themselves (cooked) , but with the grayling in the area, I wonder if he wouldn’t have been much better off using them as bait? Another guy built and wove a landing net that worked as intended to land fish.

    You have to train your pet iguana, named Remora, to ride on your dog near the back of the neck, and train your dog to tolerate her doing so. You won’t have to buy any iguana food until after deer fly season is over.

    Did anyone else lose some shingles or worse yesterday? I know I did.

    New ice

    Some of the Kawartha Lakes had a fresh skim of brand new ice across them this morning.

    Why do you think that is? Competition maybe - they figure that they better not examine it for too long or one of their companions might beat them to it? The singles, on the other hand, can take all the time they want for a close examination followed by, apparently, rejection.

    leader for frogging?

    Several years back, when I used a type of hollow plastic frog that had life-like legs out the back, pike would repeatedly take the back legs off completely with their initial chomp and/or puncture the plastic so that it would fill up with water. I went through 5 in one afternoon and gave up on the tactic of using those things in pike waters. We were after largemouth at the time. I would rather have lost the entire thing, I think.

  12. The warm, wet day did get rid of most of the snow on some of the Kawartha Lakes but then some new snow fell within 24 hours. There’s a special weather statement out now for 5-10 cm Thursday night and Friday morning (Special weather statement).

    Advice please on purchasing gas generator.

    I went through a three day outage a few years back in May. Prior to the event I had gone for the most economical generator I could find. Having been through it now, I can tell you the following: - Dont discount what people are saying about the noise. It was very, very annoying by the second night having a noisy engine running outside your house and it impacted our sleep. The quieter the model, the better you and your neighbors will sleep. - You will need to have Jerry cans of fuel on site and if the fuel capacity on the generator is too low, you will have to set an alarm to get up and fill it before my morning. Not fun, but better than losing a freezer full of food. - You wont be able to find the model you want anywhere near you following a local event, so make your purchase when the weather is nice, the forecast is good, and stocks are available. - Get your good quality extension cords of suitable length that youll need at the same time you purchase your generator and know where you are keeping them. - I dont know if anyone mentioned sump pumps, but thats another thing you may want to power if you have one, especially since the power-loss event may have also been a heavy rain event.
