Essential Boating Tools

By Tim Allard

Boating demands a certain amount of gear for both safety reasons, but also to be ready for emergency repairs. To ensure you're well prepared for the season, here are some essential boating tools and gear you should own.


The Ten Commandments of Topwater Bassin

By Justin Hoffman

Bass fishing is like a religion. To the ardent angler, it is a passion fueled by an insatiable appetite for all things Micropterus. Biblical? Not really, although, if truth be known, we are all guilty of praying to the fishing Gods from time to time.


Summertime Eyes

by Tyler Dunn

If Ontario is best known for one fish it is without a doubt the delicious walleye. Trophy walleye fishing can be had at both ends of the province. In Southern Ontario, The Bay of Quinte is a world class trophy walleye producer that rivals any other trophy walleye waters North America has to offer.


Polarized Glasses

By Pete Maina

Talk about a no - no; it’s like going muskie fishing without long-nose pliers and quality hook cutters—if you don’t have ‘em—don’t go! Quality polarized glasses are an absolute must for any good muskie or pike fisher.


Spring Smallmouth in New York on Lake Erie

By JP DeRose

When and where: Lake Erie on the US side is open all year for bass fishing but by the first Saturday in May the fish and the lake will be ready for action. There are 3 main places to launch that will get you within 5-15 miles of the best fishing grounds as well.


High Skies, Shallow Bass

By Steve Rowbotham

One of the biggest misconceptions in angling is that those bright sunny days will either drive fish deep, or into cover. While often true, rules don’t apply to all fish, as a matter of fact, probably not even half. When you think you have things figured out, they will always throw a curveball.


Belly Boating: Eco-friendly Fishing

by Rob Romberg

Fishing from a belly boat or float tube is nothing new. Anglers have been enjoying this peaceful, intimate style of fishing for decades. I was however somewhat surprised when I recently moved back to Ontario from B.C and noticed the lack of these manually propelled fishing vessels on the water.

    • Fishing the Yukon June 2019

      We have been to the Yukon several times but Alaska was new. My wife Leslie, hurt her back on an ATV ride in to a remote lake so that stopped fishing for about a week. We only fished together 2 days of the nine days in the Yukon. She insisted I do an overnighter alone so I got an extra two days in. Climate change is messing things up...they only had four inches of snow all winter and most of that was in April. One lake was so low that most of the pike habitat was dry

    • Another Weekend at Bernie’s (June 2018 edition)

      Well, another weekend at Bernie’s is in the books with the usual cast of characters!  Conditions were windy and the bite was typical of a cold front, but it’s always great to get up there and catch up with the guys! Friday we arrived around 230ish and decided to not hit the windy lake.  Instead, Bernie melted some lead to make some jigs.  We then painted them up....these things have always worked great for us and I need to re-stock again! Caught a bunch of smaller walleye on Saturday b

    • Spring 2018 pike fishing June updated pics

      Here are my pike pics from last week. Put in a lot of hours on the water visiting numerous water bodies in Central Ontario. Jerk baits and swimbaits got most bites. The fishing was actually pretty tough as I think the big females were in recovery mode.  Got out two more times to close out the spring pike season. Got re aquanted with a couple lakes that I have not fished in years. Felt good to put something together. I assumed that the water temps would ha

    • Mid June walleye.

      Hi all,   The walleye are on the move.....AT LAST!   Been a cold spring and start to summertime, which has kept the walleye very shallow. This last Saturday got out to Lac Seul for the afternoon, and it seems the walleye have moved from the shallows where they were last week and are spreading out into the main lake. Still most fish between 12' and 17'FOW. Big sucker minnows and leeches on jigs kicked butt!

    • Pigeon Muskie Report, June 5-10

      Hey all - I fished Pigeon Lake for Muskie last week. I boated 5, from 37'' to 41'', and saw over a dozen more. 3 were caught casting bucktails, and 2 were caught trolling a jake. Saw lots of follows and lost 2 fish boatside. Wind blown weed edges were the key. Find those and you'll find fish. Go during the week because weekends are CRAZY boat traffic! I was expecting to see some walleye but I didn't see any at all. I know people in camp were seeing and catching them, just not me. Had a great tri
