    This one will be a while for me to beat. It's definitely the heaviest rainbow I have ever caught.
  2. Look great Brian. Simcoe perch will be on em like a fat kid on a smartie!
  3. I had to look at the reel seat to see if it was my stolen rod. Lol. Just kidding of course.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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...

    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.
  8. 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?

    Roasted Red Pepper soup. Add a mild Italian sausage plus a chewy homemade sour dough bread.
  10. Brian, Which recipe are you following? The video one or do you have another? Thanks....
  11. Just finished binge watching Ozark on Netflix. All 3 seasons at 10 episodes a season. I like it.

    The beans are good. Next time make em up on the smoker if you can. I do mine up on the pellet grill. They get a real nice smokey taste to boot.
  13. Yup yup. Same as Spaghetti sauce, always better 2 days later.

    CHICKEN FRIED RICE. Sure, sounds simple, but this is my favorite concoction. 4 chicken thighs, bone in skin on. 6 slices cooked bacon diced. 4 large eggs whisked. Peanut oil 2 or 3 carrots diced. 1 celery stock diced. 1 medium onion diced 4 cloves garlic fine diced. 1 cup frozen peas thawed. 1/4 cup frozen corn thawed. 4 cups rice cooked the night before. Low sodium soy sauce. Oyster sauce. Roasted sesame oil. Hoisin sauce. Green onion. In a medium high heated dry wok, add thighs and cook covered until tender. Remove from wok and set aside to cool. Heat over med high, a Tbls peanut oil in wok. Add eggs and scramble. Remove from pan and reserve with cooked bacon. Heat more oil and add carrots celery onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook a bit more (1 or 2 minutes). Dice meat from thighs as the above and below are happening and set aside. Discard bone and skin. Add cold rice and peas. Cook and stir occasionally until rice softens. Add chicken eggs and bacon back into pan. Stir in 1 or 2 Tbls SOY SAUCE. 1 Tbls Oyster Sauce 2 tsp sesame oil. 1 tsp Hoisin sauce. Garnish with green onion and serve. With this I make Beef and Broccoli, Sesame Chicken and a Lo Mein.
  15. Nils Master, They look great too, top em off with the garlic shrimp? Mmmmm Aka Shag, The bacon would bring a lot of moisture back onto those breasts. Nice!
  16. 12 1/2 yrs on a battery.... you got taken on that one lol. Get to feeling better Dave, that cottage won't get built by itself. Hahaha
  17. Yup yup. I've cancelled all trips for 2020.

    You guys have GOT to try this! Beer can Burgers. Found it on the net. make 6oz meat balls. take unopened can and push down into middle of meatball. Raise hamburger up and around can to about the width of 2pcs of bacon. Wrap with bacon, this will help hole the shape of the burger and well, who doesn't like bacon. Pack firmly around can, you know you got it right if it creates a vacuum around can. (hint, grab can with paper towel for better grip and rotate in one direction as you lift. Fill with your favorite ingredients, today I sauteed onions and red peppers. plus added steamed asparagus. Topped with a couple cubes of Havarti and Swiss. To that I added garlic powder, onion powder salt and pepper. Drizzled BBQ sauce and put on pellet grill for 1 hour at 300. While they were cooking, I made creamy garlic mashed potatoes. Once the "burgers" were done, I set it on top of the potato. What a meal!
  22. My Nephew had them for sale at one time. They were sold in a micro jig box with 30 tungsten jigs. 3 different sizes. I will find out if he still has them. He can be found on Facebook under Gremlins jigs I think.
  23. Wow, And to think we were (") this close to meeting up. I should have taken pictures of you and your lovely girlfirend. We came into the one bay and we asked if you guys were at the camp on the island as I mistook you for another couple. I asked why you weren't chucking with the fly rod. We kept our distance as you had the fish cornered. LOL There were a lot of sore lips out there that week. Cheers, Ron...
  24. Sold pending pick up. Tks
