All Knowing Angler (8/10)



  1. Had Woods bug jackets but they're getting long in the tooth. Couple of year ago got this https://bugshirt.com/collections/frontpage/products/elite?variant=39423352504505. They're in Powassan so not far from my cabin. Love mine.
  2. that dinner is major drool worthy ! love fiddleheads !
  3. Indeed. always tempted to camp at Lovesick Lake Park as some sites have great views.
  4. Burleigh Falls ? I used to paddle whitewater canoe but heard that one drop had a really, really nasty rock or something in the drop. I shld go and check it out at low water. Gorgeous view though
  5. there's no byline for this story so no idea if it was a wire story or what. Still a great read on Gustafson's final day etc. Guess we'll see an uptick of Loomis rods, Shimano reels and plastics this summer/spring. Any appearances at shows and talks he may give are going to be nutz. I'd drive to hear him talk about the win, and about his methods. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/article-kenora-fisherman-the-first-canadian-to-win-the-bassmaster-classic-in/#comments
  6. Be sure to know when to use an AED. They're not meant to revive a person who has no heartbeat (heat attack). ie-tv medical shows. As I've seen described elsewhere, a heart attack is a 'plumbing issue' and can't be helped by an AED. A cardiac arrest is an 'electrical issue' and can be aided with the timely use of an AED. Having said all that, getting one for community use is a very smart thing and there really is zero downside.
  7. I didn't watch it online but do we know for sure he was running aluminum and not the GL Pro V ? Seems like a golden opportunity for Lund to capitalize on this win. Also wonder if this will make people rethink aluminum vs glass for these tourneys., but guess it depends on the waters and weather.
  8. have ridden shotgun on a glass tourney boat down south, how much different would the ride be when they're screaming across the lake in aluminum ? rougher I imagine ?
  9. edit-sorry, missed your earlier post terry Gustafson hangs on for the win ! 12 fish for 42 lbs 7 oz. Second place was a pound and change lighter, and was 15 fish. final day weigh ins are a blast. total show https://www.facebook.com/bass/photos/pcb.10160372591615915/10160372589230915/
  10. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/olympics/article-canadian-jeff-gustafson-takes-lead-over-first-day-of-bassmaster/ hope he can hold onto it till the final weigh ins
  11. iirc, Totem Point Lodge has a rental pontoon. considered renting it one day for a lazy long day of lure washing. bring cooler camp chairs etc..
  12. another article from the Globe and Mail, this one about testing EVs in Norway. looks like story is behind a paywall. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/business/article-norway-electric-vehicles/ "Norway has embraced electric cars like no other country on earth, with batteries powering 79.3 per cent of all new cars sold in 2022. But adoption rates have been slower in Finnmark, where just over half of cars sold last year were electric. In the darkness of Arctic winter, shoppers leave diesel station wagons idling in the parking lot as they stock up on groceries. Not everyone is convinced electric will be better. “The effectiveness of the battery is not so good in this cold,” said Pererik Larsen, a paramedic in Hesseng. His coverage area extends to Bugøynes, a drive of nearly 100 kilometres. As technology progresses and electric range extends, he can imagine using an electric ambulance. But not now. “In this kind of weather, I would be really worried,” he said. story gets more optimistic about EV however fwiw, if I can scrounge the pennies, I'm hoping my next vehicle is this https://www.jeep.ca/en/grandcherokee4xe/2022
  13. Link is behind a paywall but here's a snippet. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/business/article-brp-electric-snowmobiles-off-road/ BRP Inc. will begin shipping out its first electric vehicles, Ski-Doo and Lynx snowmobile models, later this year as part of a wider, multiyear push to offer electric models in all of its product lines by 2026, the company said in a statement late Monday. A few hundred units will be delivered first to outfitters and tour operators such as Lapland Safaris in Rovaniemi, Finland, with power and range optimized for guided snowmobile excursions up to 50 kilometres. I'm guessing the range is capped because it's going to tour and rentals. Wonder how much heated grips will drain the battery. Less noise would be welcome though...
  14. mmmmmmmm..is it wrong I wanna dip this in tartar sauce ?
  15. I'd suggest the large refillable bags that you let drip filter, by hanging it from a tree etc. depending on the body of water you're on, going out into the middle of the lake *can* be safe to drink straight from the lake. Did this on my last Quetico trip and no problems. This was a trip with park wardens and was their suggestion. For filtering, I'd be looking at Katadyn or MSR. Fwiw, friends have caught trophy pike and muskie on flies up there. Good waters for pickerel as well.
