  1. Success! With the help of many hands, over 200 rainbow trout were lifted over the dam! Thanks to the volunteers who braved the cold water. Cheers!
  2. This is no longer run by the MNRF. This has been organized by volunteers for the past several years. Permits are issued by the MNRF and the local Conservation Authority. There is still a biologists on site to ensure proper handling of fish with minimal scientific data collected (Spieces and sex identification only). So, saying that, volunteers are welcome to attend. Starting time for volunteers will commence at 8:30am. A sign in sheet is required to be covered on the insurance policy. Hope to you there! Cheers, Ron....
  3. Hello everyone A welcomed update to do with the Cobourg Creek annual RAINBOW TROUT spring migration. With the COVID restrictions being lifted, the fish lift will be going ahead this year. When: Saturday April 2nd, 2022 (weather permitting) Where: The Mill Restaurant & Pub 990 Ontario St. Cobourg, Ontario Time: 9:30AM Volunteers are welcome, bring chest waders and bring a net. Cheers!
  4. Meh... The rebuild you did for me looked better. LOL Just kidding, they all look GREAT!
  5. This one will be a while for me to beat. It's definitely the heaviest rainbow I have ever caught.
  6. Look great Brian. Simcoe perch will be on em like a fat kid on a smartie!
  7. I had to look at the reel seat to see if it was my stolen rod. Lol. Just kidding of course.
  8. By all means Bill, thanks! Yes, I have contacted my insurance company. The claim goes through your home policy. I have replacement value, however, you end up having a claim against you and your rates automatically go up a certain percentage so they recoup their loss over time, you end up paying for the loss regardless. I can buy a new reel, (2 yr waiting list). I have been fortunate to track down one blank, they haven't made them for 35 yrs and still considered the best on the market. Spiel has graciously agreed to build it for me. The downfall, it's just not the same rod I grew to enjoy for 30 plus years. The other 2 rods (Fenwick Elite 8'6" med heavy) are no longer available. Again, the 2 stolen Shimano Stradic CI4 HG 3000 are no longer available. So yes, it is a substantial loss.
  9. I have nothing but praise for the CAA Plus I have and will be a lifetime member. I blew a wheel bearing in Nipigon to the point of no longer having a usable axle on the trailer, I had to kick the tire on to launch the boat. CAA covered the cost of hauling my trailer to Thunder Bay to have a new axle installed.
  10. Cobourg. Whoever stole these, wasn't targeted. With construction advertising on the side of my truck. They were hoping to get an easy score. I'm sure if I had my tools in there along with my rods, the Dewalt tools would have been gone instead. I'm not on the internet much anymore. I don't do Faceplant Twitter or any of the other sites. So if anyone sees this stuff on a buy and sell, please please let me know. Cheers...
  11. I recently went to Superior North on a fishing trip. It was a great trip until I got home late Monday night. Between the hours of 6am and 8am, some person stole 3 fishing rods out of the back of my truck in my own driveway. 1 outfit was my pride and joy, a vintage G LOOMIS 1562 IMX 13' made in Canada float rod custom rebuilt by our very own Spiel. Along with this rod was my 5" Rainmaker reel built by Canada Fishing Reels. The other 2 rod and reel combos were my 8'6" Fenwick Eagle Elite med heavy both paired with Shimano Stradic CI4+ C3000HG. A generous reward will be given upon the safe return.
  12. Very impressive on how you got the portion of untouched antler to showcase the seat. Will you ever get the aroma of burnt bone out of the shop?
  13. Roasted Red Pepper soup. Add a mild Italian sausage plus a chewy homemade sour dough bread.
