  1. I have not been to the Stoufville location but did go to the one at Heart Lake in Brampton last summer (believe they are all quite similar) We enjoyed it - its pretty physical, and if you don't like heights not sure its a good choice. I was there w my 9 year old and she loved it. I would say we were there for about 3 hours or so and were entertained Thanks Gordy
  2. Very nice - that first walleye has just awesome colours
  3. Haven't been active on the site much this summer - haven't really fished - one or two trips where I mainly fished off the dock lol However I did come up with a plan to improve those odds Recently purchased my first fishing kayak - A Feel Free Lure 11.5 - I have only had it out twice, once for a paddle and once for a fish) In this pic I am running with the seat high (new user error -couldn't lower it lol) - but did get out again last weekend and figured it out - was awesome One interesting thing - fishing excursion up Haliburton way - the lake was covered in these small flying ants - I have never seen so many fish rises in my life - almost every minute something was coming to the surface to gorge on the bugs - very much like a mayfly hatch Quick trip up to the family cottage near Gravenhurst. Fishing off the dock I managed to hook into a large walleye - over 24 inches. According to some long time lake residents its rare for a walleye to be that size on the lake - so score one for me. Also caught it on a brand new Storm 360 search bait - like literally out of the package and 3 casts - score again The next morning I was mainly being the kids fishing assistant - one of them yelled that a big "scary fish" just swam under the dock. I quickly grabbed my rod that had a wacky rigged worm on it and jigged it on the deep side of the dock and hooked into a nice pike Anyway - all in all a great couple of catches to tide me over and if there is something memorable about my maiden kayak fish this weekend will update as well On another note -my group has confirmed our plan and outfitter for 2020 - we are going with Slate Falls Outposts to their Miniss West cabin at the end of August - first planning session in the books last night and the juices are flowing Cheers and thanks for reading Gordy

  7. I struggle with knots - but I have found this one to be reliable and strong and easy to tie https://www.seaguar.com/applications/knot-guide/63-seaguar-knot.html To tie flouro to my lure I like this knot as it won't shear on itself (unlike a traditional clinch) https://www.netknots.com/fishing_knots/san-diego-jam-knot Cheers Gordy
  8. I’m no cook but Brian here in Mississauga we have a great British shop and there black pudding is very good (I love it but more importantly my parents who are Scottish love it to). There Lorne’s sausage, potato scones are also top notch right off the 401 at Winston Churchill For those who love British food, candy even soaps etc it’s a cool place https://www.britishgrocerwholesale.com/
  9. Thanks Bunk - certainly your posts from Pym and Kesagami back in the day were a big inspiration to us when we first decided to do fly ins - its funny I can still say to my brother "we need to find our grocery store" and he knows exactly what I mean. Many of those who posted reports and still do (Yourself, Mike B/Solo Paddler, Chris Brock) have always been both entertaining but also totally education for us - keep it up! Thanks - we were definitely impressed with the average size of the fish North of Nakina vs what we had experienced around White RIver (although my PB walleye and our groups PB walleye came from a small lake with White River Air on our first fly in) Cheers Andrew
  10. As always really enjoyed the post and the video your Dads advice and you sharing it was also great. Cheers Gordy
  11. I bought an auto inflate a few years ago and wear it whenever I fish now. Mainly because it’s comfortable. Prior to that I never wore one because I found it uncomfortable or too hot. So for me I am happy w the auto inflate
  12. I hear ya Chris Its a long wait but with kids all into sports and just busy summers its a combo of budget and time Theres been talk of a smaller trip in the off years - maybe a 4 nighter to Lady Evelyn again or just renting a private cottage But yeah - I would love to do one every year even a few lol Andrew
  13. I haven't posted much on this site for over a year - to be honest mainly because I have fished very little until our most recent trip Our group decided to venture out of the Algoma region this time around and head further north to Nakina Ontario We used Ogoki Lake Outfitters run by John and Gloria Ritch http://www.ogokilakeoutfitters.com/ What a choice - we had by far our best trip ever for fishing and the lake and its surrounding beauty was just awesome I did a much lengthier report here and for whatever reason I have not been able to copy and paste and keep the formatting or the pictures https://www.canadafishingguide.net/forum-2/member-trip-reports-1/go-northwest-young-men-a-week-ogoki-lake/ For those who don't want to flip: We had some epic weather roll in, caught over 500 fish for the week and really had a great time If you are ever looking I would definitely endorse both Ogoki Lake and Ogoki Lake Outfitters A few pictures below Cheers Gordy
  14. Hey there I think the meta channel cabin is now owned by Meta Lake lodge or at the very least Meta LL operates an outpost in the channel http://www.metalakelodgefishing.com/channel-view-outpost.html Hope this helps Cheers Gordy

    Krocs

    Love my crocs - they are ugly but comfortable and great for around the cottage Drain water easily and are cooler than running shoes
