Recommended Posts

I need some black bucktail jigs and all the stores have only little ones or ones with a round head and I dont like that! I need a few 1/4 3/8 and 1/2.

Why don't you tie up your own? Honestly - it couldn't be easier. Buy some heads you like, a chunk of black bucktail, some thread and a little bottle of head cement. Give it an hour and you'll have a year's worth of jigs for just a few bucks.

OK. What would you charge and can I see any samples? I prefer pointed jig heads to rip through the weeds. And I want them around 3 inches long. All Black, maybe black/ green.

Really? Sounds like an idea. I bought one in Orillia for 75cents and just wanted 5 or 6 but if I get really good at it, I will consider making my own. Worst comes to worse, I will drive up to Orillia and get some more when I go fishing at Sparrow Lake.

Thanks. Called and they have a great selection. Ranging from $2.50 - $5. I might go get some, but I decided to buy some bucktail and make a few of my own and see how that goes. Worse comes to worse? I only wasted $10.

Powder painted heads or an epoxy coat over paint with help the color stay on the head,

      Hello, thanks for letting me join. I’m from England but I’m coming out to Canada, Ontario for 2 weeks in September. It’s not a fishing holiday but some fishing will definitely be happening. Has anyone got any advice on areas I should visit to try and catch a better carp as when I was out before caught lots of smaller ones so wanted to try and get one over 20lb! Also advice on what licences I need would be great. we are staying a few days in London, then travelling to the kawartha lakes area

    • Kingston area eastern Lake Ontario salmon/trout fishing

      I used to run 27' boat out of Whitby trolling for Lake Ontario salmon and rainbow trout each summer, and I have been missing it. I moved just north of Kingston a dozen years ago and have concentrated on back lakes bass since then. When I was in Whitby, I could tell you exactly what week the salmon would appear, in what locations and at what depth the best fishing would be. Seldom got skunked if the fish were around. I am thinking of upgrading my 14' tin boat to something that could han

    • Shore fishing Lake Erie (Wheatley area)

      Hi there, Has anyone here ever tried fishing from shore on Lake Erie near Wheatley? My family rented a cottage right on the lake and I was hoping to do some fishing after my little one goes to bed. I’ve fished from shore before on big water on Lake Abitibi and had some success using just a pickerel rig. Would that be the ticket here or is there anything better to use? Am I just wasting my time?   thanks!

    • Perth area camping and fishing?

      I might have the opportunity to get away in the Perth area for some camping and fishing one weekend late August Any suggestions for on good places to camp and really nice fishing lakes? I’ll be going solo. Prefer camp sites with hydro as I will need to charge my trolling battery.  I’d either be taking my tent trailer and canoe with electric motor or roughing it with a tent and bringing my boat for gas and electric motoring. Both Silver Lake and Sharbot Lake PP’s are all pretty much boo
