  1. Like many on this site I am sure over the years I have built up a healthy stockpile of fishing cr$p in the garage Heck my pile even includes an 12 foot kayak A while ago I decided to organize, sell some stuff, give some stuff away and most importantly get my rod and reel combos out of the corner and onto a rack lest they be broken I bought myself a tackle station from BPS and decided to do a review https://www.northernjacks.com/post/product-review-bass-pro-shops-tackle-station Cheers Andrew
  2. For sure it’s a great way to kill some time in the down months. I am not sure I save any money but something sweet about catching a fish on a homemade lure I like the Mustad slow death as well. So far I think red is my best colour for those hooks Andrew
  3. A few winters ago - probably through this site I saw a few threads about making your own lures Considering my love of the worm harness I started there I am generally building/making things challenged - not handy at all but with a few good Youtube videos and articles I found a way to power through https://www.northernjacks.com/post/how-to-tie-your-own-worm-harnesses Cheers Andrew
  4. Thanks Bunk! I think I called it out in the post but your trips are the reason Plummers made my list! I think one of the reasons this would be a "special event" trip is the fact that I would probably go full out. I have never targeted lakers before - never caught one and I think I would be useless on such a huge lake lol. Anyway - when this one rolls around I will be hitting you up for sure for tips and tricks! Who knows if you are ever looking to fill out a group, hit me up lol Cheers Andrew
  5. I spend a good chunk of time researching potential trip destinations - especially during the winter A while back I did a bucket list post but I limited my fishing choice to just on trip Newest post focuses on a few fishing trips I would like to take - my interest in the spot can be species, location or water body https://www.northernjacks.com/post/bucket-list-revisited-fishing-only-edition Cheers Andrew
  6. Awesome - I took a look at the Bounce Lake website - nice new cabin and the fact that it seems booked solid is a good sign I would guess Enjoy - I know our first fly in was magical and I am sure you and your family will love it Andrew
  7. Slow on the draw or slow on the read on this one Bunk but as always enjoyed and it got me to review a post or two I missed Cheers Andrew
  8. Thanks for sharing - enjoyed that video and glad to see you back online Simon Cheers Andrew
  9. It's been a while but I finally managed to get a new post up Meal planning is always a big discussion point ahead of our trips. Generally we are looking for a blend of good food, east prep and a budget that doesnt break the bank. To some degree we are also s of weight - to many canned goods = less beer lol This time around we were doing new things - flying commercially and shopping in Thunder Bay and we had a vegan amongst us! https://www.northernjacks.com/post/top-5-meals-from-our-2020-trip Cheers Andrew
  10. Thanks for sharing - I really enjoyed that Best of luck with your new place - I remember when we first moved into our house - easy to think of all the things you can do but we tried to break it down into bite size chunks lol The view at your folks new place is spectacular - enjoy! Cheers Andrew
  11. Thanks for sharing. Looks like a great trip! Definitely a lake and outfitter that are on my personal radar Cheers Andrew
  12. Lol. When I was a kid my dream boat was this Prinecraft side console with a 70 horse Johnson on the back. It’s name was the Bassin Assassin. Think I loved the name the most
  13. Nice! I can’t say I have named a lot of lures although I am certainly guilty of staying fixated on one lure for way to long. After one epic day on Balsam w a hot head x rap I swear I started with that lure every time I fished for smallies for at least 3 years. Then it was the wacky rig and now it’s probably the ned rig. Maybe it just makes me loyal Andrew
  14. Took a wee bit of a holiday break but newest post is up It's a confession of sorts - I love a good fishing spot nick name. I was born the son of a spot namer and my Mom's Dad was also a prolific spot namer Post covers my lineage and some of my favorites from the Kawarthas to Sioux Lookout and even includes a video of a bear lol https://www.northernjacks.com/post/great-spots Cheers and thanks for reading Andrew
  15. As usual very well said Bunk All the best to everyone over the holidays and for 2021 This year has felt like a grind at times but I also try to remind myself that I have much to be grateful for and yes cheers to you Bunk and all of the frontline workers out there. Andrew
