  1. Hello, I am a newbie fisherman. I have gone fishing multiple times in the gta with no luck (5 times lol). I was wondering if there are any parks or spots that are (1) willing to be shown to me physically (2) anyone is willing to write here. I have been trying different locations and they do not seem that good. I understand that the GTA may not be the best place for fishing but as a young adult that does not have the most free time or money, I’m looking for options that are somewhat local and more accessible. I also understand that someone wouldn’t probably share their spots, but this is a shot in the dark. Thank you
  2. Hey everyone. I tried inflated worms for steelhead the last couple years and had my best year yet this past spring. I know there are other options but not sure what else might work as good for me. Usually fishing in small creeks/rivers. Also, just wanted to share this video from FFTROU since they covered inflated worms earlier this year. Tight lines!
  3. I am interested in fishing in the Lower Oxtongue River between Lake of Bays and Ragged Falls. Can anyone tell me what they go for in there? I am thinking there may be Brookies, Pike, Smallies, .... ?. Thanks.
  4. Hey guys, So we just put together another video from some footage of a battle with a nice coloured up buck way upstream on a feeder creek that flows into canada's main tributary of Lake Erie. Was just wondering what you guys think about the video as it is only our second one! Any tips, advice of feedback would be greatly apreciated! Caught the buck, using a 6'0 Utralight fenwick bush rod, shimano straddic reel with 6lb mainline, 4lb drennan fluoro leader float fishing a logjam with fresh rainbow roe, it was quite the fight! Here is the link: Tight Lines! Eric
  5. I enjoyed a fun day on the Niagara River with a friend Chuck. We got into lots of steelhead and many hens were fat and dropping a stream of eggs into the bottom of my boat! Yes, the steelhead are right in the middle of spawning on the Niagara River! It is very late for them this year, but the water temps are only just hitting around 47F. I have never seen them spawning so late. Steelhead will be in the Niagara River well into June this year, and maybe even into July! The water colour was heavily stained below the power dams, and we only hit one fish, a nice brown that nailed a 6 inch pink worm. Above the dams had several feet of beautiful green "slaughter water". We caught fish drifting three-way rigs and pink worms, roe bags and beads. Chuck had a certain hot bead that was on fire. He must have had 8 fish to the boat before I asked for a bead. The bead is a unique colour that was chartreuse with a hint of pearl white to it. We pegged the bead approximately 2 inches from our hooks with a rubber bead peg. Roe accounted for a lot of bites as well in natural peach tied in bags smaller than a dime. We didn't take many photos, we were busy catching fish Enjoy the few pics we did take. Good fishing! Aaron
  6. I had my friend Mitch out on the Niagara River for steelhead on Saturday, and we had a blast. The fishing was good on the lower drifts, and I caught an absolute tank of a steelhead! We had such an enjoyable day drifting the peaceful waters that meander through the lower stretches of the Niagara River. We made it above the power dams briefly and caught a couple fish, but it was very busy with boats and gin clear water. The water temperature is still only 33.6F! That is the coldest I can remember for this time of year. There is still a lot of ice in the eastern basin of Lake Erie, and the ice boom is still in place to block major ice from flowing down the Niagara River. The boom is typically removed in mid-March, but this year it will be in place until May. That is the latest I have ever heard of since I've been fishing the Niagara. The sun was shining and it was 10 degrees Celsius with a north wind blowing up river. The north winds made it a bit more of a challenge to present our baits naturally along with the bottom current, but the bow mount Minn Kota helped a lot. We were able to maintain bottom contact and precision with boat control that enabled us to have a great day. We even managed a double header. The water clarity below the power dams was perfect with several feet of visibility and a slight stain. TriggerX single eggs in pink and orange worked well, as did some old roe bags I had tied up. I started off the day with a nice fat hen that put a good bend in my rod, then Mitch lit them up for a while. We took turns catching nice steelies after that and then I hooked up near the top of Artpark with a heavy fish. The fish took drag and stayed down deep. I couldn't budge the fish with my 6lb Fluorocarbon leader. Every time I got the fish close to the surface, it pulled drag and ended up near the bottom again. At first I thought it may have been a lake trout until is screamed drag a few times. Then I knew... it was a tank steelhead! I took my time and didn't get too anxious. After a long tug of war, a tired steelhead emerged near the surface showing its large silvery sides. I was able to slide the net under the behemoth and get it into the boat. I was pretty excited to catch the largest steelhead I've caught in a couple years! It was a chrome hen full of eggs, and I released her after a few quick photos. I haven't spent a day fishing with my friend Mitch in a while, and it was a great day to catch up, share some laughs and catch some great fish. Mitch even caught a fishing rod! LOL Here is a video from our day, including underwater video and the tanker. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtSoNWY4Zb0&feature=share&list=UUpEgDDc4A0ayUV77sTfs5uQ I have been out several times on the Niagara and it has been good except for one tough day. The way things are going this year, we can catch steelies into July. No kidding!!! Good fishing! Aaron
  7. Since I've moved into my new house, it's been nothing but extremes. Either working extremely hard or having way too much fun. TV is no longer a part of our household and therefore the firepit has become our new viewing screen. My main objective is to prepare enough wood for the coming winter season; I know its late to get started so I'm trying that much harder. A new chainsaw, $300 three wheeler, my trusty Mazda Truck, several axes and splitters have become my new best friends, although the saw has a terrible attitude and I get the feeling it's in a bad place in life, it just keeps breaking down. I build a holz hausen (round house) to dry my wood quicker. I'm separating the remaining split pieces into single cords on pallets. This is the first time in years I yearn for a drought....dry wood, dry! As per one of my last topics, I DID "lease" out my land to a hunter. I really lucked out with this guy as he has a very good reputation and infact has been on hunting shows on WildTV. He only wants bear, a game I'm not yet interested in. After many meetings, phone conversations and on-going emails, we came to a written "barter" agreement clearly stated out expectations. I don't even have my hunting license yet (sept 22 I'm booked in) so its a perfect time to try this out...although I'm hoping we can make this a long term thing, as does he. So far, I've seen a fisher, several partridge, bear cubs, deer and tons of rabbits on the property. It's total heaven here; so much mixed forest, most of it very dense and completely unexplored. I also managed to find the river, which is quite far back there. No trails called for bark-etching as I found my way deep into the bush. I brought my rod and a small panther martin spinner, but didn't see any brook trout action. Hoping to get back there again soon for a more thorough fishing excursion. what do you think? Does this look like brookie waters? There are very few homes backing onto the entire river system. One thing I've been doing is foraging to mushrooms. I bought a field guide, read it up, down, sideways and cross-referenced every piece of information I could. Chantrelles are a great addition to dinner, they fetch a lot of money at high-end restaurants (they aint getting mine ) and seem to be quite abundant around here. I've been having a blast finding my side-dish in my back-yard between cutting/stacking wood. Thanks for reading; now I'm gonna go pick to raspberries to put into my cereal, then I'm gonna go visit the wood pile.
