Christmas Time Feelings

Recommended Posts

I want to wish all my Canadian friends a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year - for us old guys who have lost their spouse  things are a little sad  around this time of the year - I look back at the time my wife was here with me and the kids were small - those were the real good days - but life goes on - for you young guys who have a family make sure you cherish the season and their company

Merry Christmas to all and a Happy,  Healthy New Year,  say a special  thank you to all of our first responders and the military people who protect us each and every day.  Also,  don't forget to ask Santa  to put a little "treat"  under the tree for all of our 4 legged friends who enrich our lives and ask for nothing in return.

Rick and Dianne.

Very fine words, JoePa.  Sorry  about the loss of your wife and the emptiness you feel this time of year. 

It’s a tough time of year for  lots of folks that don’t have close family to gather with. 

Lets do our best to reach out to those in our circles that need some love. 

Merry Christmas

The loss of a loved one is really tough the first year without them. Too many of my friends have lost family members this year. I have a friend who died in an Atv crash and she left a 5 year old daughter and an old friend lost her 14 year old to suicide recently.. I was scheduled to work on the 24th and 25th nights but I was fortunate enough to have the seniority to take vacation days.. I missed the chance to make the big bucks on Christmas day but money means nothing if you miss too many of them with your loved ones..

You said it well,  unfortunately I lost another good friend last friday to cancer, I was lucky to see him before he passed away.  Money doesn't buy memories and when they're gone, it's final.  Cheers to all.

My son was killed 12 days before Christmas back in '04 and Christmas has never really been the same since then.

The pain diminishes but never really goes away.

I know how it is Lew. Diane died 7yrs ago Jan 16th, 2012 and if it was not for my kids l would have lost it all together. Cancer is a terrible thing for anyone to go through. Lost my mother 6 months 5 days and 7hrs later. Christmas is never the same.

Hard to believe it's been 8 years already Norm, Jack was a good guy.

Merry Christmas. This year was tough at our house too, we lost my dad in the late spring and it wasn't the same without him. Christmas is about spending time with family and remembering those that have left us.

    • Saying hello, been a looooong time!

      I'm back in the GTA for the last few weeks but pretty much all of my fishing buddies have either left the city and/or have left the sport! I'm also partly guilty because I've been travelling a ton the past few years, living abroad, and fishing sporadically... How time flies... it seems like it was just yesterday that I was posting pictures of my pike and carp catches from the Toronto Islands ...

      For those who have a tendency to procrastinate or have perpetual brain farts,  don't forget to put your fish finder batteries on charge once in a while.

    • Summer time crappies

      Hi All, I'm new to the Kawarthas on Pigeon Lake near Emily Provincial Park.  I was catching some nice tasty slab crappies during the spring time, but they all seem to have disappeared.  Anyone have any idea where I can find them on Pigeon Lake?  I only have a small aluminum boat with a 9.9 outboard, so can't go far.  I would appreciate any information on where and how to find them. Thanks, KeithK

      They're all set up and biting! This is going to be a beautiful weekend to get out for a feed of perch! We released the biggest ones to help sustain the population! 1/8 oz. Ultra Tungsten ball jigs with various plastics were the key! Figure out what depth they're at, stay on that depth using your Navionics charts and you'll smash them but please be selective.
