  1. It might be a bit under powered, but I have a short shaft yamaha four stroke 4 hp (2014) I used it a few times when my big motor was giving me issues last year. This is one of the portable ones with the built in tank, and a hookup for a normal fuel tank
  2. Lure selection isn't too bad considering the sale has been going on for a few weeks, everything else is getting scarce, somehow I still managed to spend 300$ today
  3. I made a bunch of ingots from wheel weights, what I heard about car batteries is the amount of oxidized lead on the plates is much higher than other sources, and that would result in a large amount of slag that gets skimmed off. That plus the whole battery acid thing makes them a crappy source for lead.
  4. the one in the gold packaging right? ive been using that one in 6lb as leader material for salmon and steel and i am very impressed with it (very good abraision resistance and knot strength). only problem is finding it in the smaller spools as the big spools dont fit in pockets very well
  5. you would think there would be more to getting trailer plates, but literally you can go in, say you built a trailer, give the color, approximate weight, number of axels, and pay like 35$ for plates. no inspections from what i know, but it has to have working lights, fenders, etc, otherwise you could get pulled over.
  6. I unplug when launching. However I did use the merettes, I used die electric grease to fill the void and waterproof the connections. I figure if I have an issue, a greased merette is easier to take apart roadside than a solder and heat shrunk connection
  7. how about using a cupped stainless steel brush on a angle grinder for the glue residue? if there is any paint, it will get removed, but it should give you a good surface to repaint or glue new carpet too
  8. i have a cable bike lock with my spare tire, and mount. onluy thing im worried about is if it rusts and seizes when i will actually need it.
  9. Spar urethane is what a lot of guys seal floors and transom wood with. A few coats and it should last for years and Seeing how you already bought and cut the pt plywood, no point in wasting the materials. Well this and the steps irishfield posted regarding specific screws and foam to prevent galvanic corrosion
  10. Might get out this week, will shoot ya a text if I see any around
  11. What location was it? Looks pretty decent for the price
  12. Here's what I was able to throw together, I was inspired to finally get it together after meeting brian on lake joe with his sweet rig lol. It made the slush from the thaw today a breeze to pull through on simcoe, with no bogging at all. I still have a few mods that I want to do to fit my needs, also a paint job is in order, but I'm glad I finally finished it instead of having an old set of ski's rusting in my backyard
  13. The case on the rapala pack rod is really nice, compared to the ugly stick. I have both, prefer the feel on the rapala, but the ugly stick will get the job done just fine.
  14. Could you round the top edge of the tip down to the blade edge? Turn it into a santoku shape
  15. I heard a rumour that they were gonna start charging for the tiffins launch. It really is unfortunate, if the cost to park was reasonable, I would be ok with paying a little. But instead they are driving people away with the high cost
  16. http://www.mnr.gov.on.ca/en/Business/LetsFish/2ColumnSubPage/198481.html The detail maps are here, they show what shorelines and where the exact borders to the different fmz's are. Hope this helps a little at least
  17. The Mnr has fine detail maps available that hilight the borders or different zones, I'm not sure if it will Assist you specifically, but it might help clear up some confusion
  18. Ford escape for trade, accepting horse and buggy setup in return
  19. Long weekend is just around the corner right
  20. 137.9 here in Toronto yesterday. My gas light is on, but I have no will to fill my car right now
  21. You could probably use a roller for the large coverage areas
  22. I'm so down, it would be something else to hook into a steelhead on one of those setups lol
  23. I've seen some terrible looking rod and reel combos there, I can see it now, setting like a 10$ budget for everyone, and see what happens, I think there would be at least one guy using Vienna sausages as bait lol.
  24. I also use 1/2" metal screws on the bottom of my wading boots as studs. They are much cheaper than the ones from Simms and if they get worn out or lost, they are easy to replace.
  25. I figure we can use a thread like this, feel free to share your finds. I know every time I go shopping I look for items I can use or manipulate to to my fishing need, and I know I'm not the only one. Things like finding soup skimmers in the kitchen area or the local dollar store to use as ice skimmers, or this little find for tying roe bags I found in the wedding decoration area lol. This netting is less than half the price as the commercial brand, with more than double the material. Sure I'm still stuck buying the expensive stuff if I want the colors, but for white, I'm happy I'm curious what you guys have found, or came up with to save some cash.
