I knew we'd received too much rain yesterday...

Cool, the one on the right looks like a hybrid? I got chased by a goose one night years ago at a pond I was fishing at, got too close to the nest in the dark. One definitely looked like a Canada goose, the other looked more like a domestic goose.

i get them trying to nest in my yard sometimes in the spring too Lew, it's cool to watch them.

Looks like our cottage in Bobcaygeon Lew. Our neighbour actually has a natural pond and there are ducks every spring. We buy corn and feed them so they get quite tame. If they are around when I'm BBQing they waddle right over to me looking for handouts.  Hell they have even came right up on our porch and looked in the screen door to see if any one will come out and spread some more corn around the yard:lol:

Spring of 2017 the Trent Severn flooded in many locations.  I'm on Buckhorn Lake and it flooded (flooded is open to interpretation ... some areas flooded bad, others were just much higher than normal).

Anyhow ... in my backyard (where we walk and I cut the grass) the water had gone up so much that the part that is lowest had approx 3 - 8 inches of water.  I couldn't believe it but there were schools of bluegill that would come into the super shallow, warm water ... on my grass.  If I walked down towards the flooded spot they would all scurry off and go back to the deeper water of my small bay.  It would create quite a splash in the shallow water.  It was quite funny.

Well ... I made it my mission to fish in this 3 - 8 inch of water and catch one ... just to say I did.  It took a while ... but I caught one with my ultralight.  Makes for a good story when I'm down at the water with someone and I point out where the fish were and where I caught it.   Right up in my yard where I cut the grass by the fire pit!

P.S.  This was the only time I've seen my neighbors dock which sits on a crib ... float away.

well that's fun. We had so much water in Barrie a few years ago I let goldfish go in my backyard. The next day the neighbour (whose yard flooded with mine) was out there catching them in a bucket! He just couldn't believe that "somehow" goldfish had made their way in to our yards

    • Can't get much more redneck than this!

      We live in the rural area of a small village, no stoplight, 1 snack bar, the corner store and a post office. Ooops we have a gas station and sometimes they have gas.  It's on the north shore of Lake Erie in southern Ontario. I am telling the owner of the local corner store about locking myself out of my wife's car today. That's another story, I was trying to open a blue Honda, she has the same colour blue Kia. So I'm telling Bruce about this old-timers moment I had. He tells me a customer also l

    • Too cool for me

      I find the price for these so called high end coolers a bit much for me. It is becoming the norm and every  cooler company is jumping on the bandwagon. Heck you can buy a home freezer for less than one of these  2 inch insulated plastic boxes. Rant over

    • Simcoe whitefish from yesterday

      Been a while since I've posted a fish report, figured I was due. Always helps when you have a nice pic to post too. Reports of my recent skunkings would be boring I'm sure. It was pretty windy on Simcoe yesterday and I again brought the wrong hut. I nearly died trying to pull my heavy flip last weekend on the north part of the lake in deep snow. So this time I brought a small and light popup only to find out its mostly glare ice and my flip would have been perfect. 🙄 Setup in 32' and w
