Petition requesting to open boat launches for fishermen


Recommended Posts

If he didn't suggest checking for a license at the launch I would sign it.

And maybe fish with the people you live with, not just limit randoms to 2.

We are distancing right now, not picking best fishing partners.

I just want to launch with my dog and go fish a bit

I am in a low risk community and our municipal launch is barricaded while I hear you guys in Hamilton etc hot zones saying launches are open

I think Ford said yesterday there wouldn't be any further changed to the current restrictions and everything stays as is for now.

What should have been the maximum restriction was that you can only fish or golf alone. Many would be happy with that.

operationally I dont think it would make financial sense for golf courses to operate at 1/4 capacity. fishing however is on your own dime.

By the way, fishing isnt illegal right now, its just hard to find a launch thats open. As usual, people would rather complain then actually put the effort in to make it happen. Typically these same people are the ones that are only complaining because they cant go fishing with all of their buddies.

Ive been out fishing, and many people I know have as well.

With my usual spring time launches now closed I have found 2 that are better maintained and a little cheaper.

I dunno, say a few courses don't open. Imagine the demand for the courses that were open, you could fill every slot 7 days a week. I know that pretty well happens on some courses but for other courses singles all day long 7 x a week may actually bring in more money.

I’ll tell you right now, the noise surrounding the lockdown has died totally down aside from the weirdos at “no more lockdowns”

there’s no way dougie or any of his crew are going to make noise at this point. They are going to let these next what 13? Days pass and point to the fact that once again (as we already knew) tight lockdowns are extremely effective at reducing case and hospitalization numbers. In two weeks my assumption is that we will probably be a lot closer to 1000 cases per day with no doubt a decline in the volume in the ICU’s

to be on topic, this petition is a month late and won’t have any impact on the current lockdown we are in. You’d have to be crazy to think that anyone involved with the decision to close local boat ramps is going to do a total 180 on the subject. As with most things it’s easier to just shut it totally down then try and police who’s going fishing vs who’s going fishing with their buddies from 5 different households etc. Or who’s going “fishing” but actually going to have a boat party and get drunk with some girls on their dad’s cabin cruiser. 
 

the entire premise that “carrying a fishing rod and having a fishing license” is grounds for you to go boating is hilarious. Funny how easy carrying a fishing pole and having a fishing license turns into what I described above.

once again and I will reiterate. If you want to go fishing, it’s easily done. Those that care enough to go have been and will continue to be out on the water and laying into some fish.

I think they are not separating marinas from     boat launches. Many people think of a marina as 100s of boats all parked close together and people using them as cottages, living close to one another bbqing on the dock beside everyone else  and that isn’t good at this time

but a boat ramp.  Boat in and out  not close contact should be good to go

Personally I am getting used to seeing odd things. I used to laugh when I would see people driving alone in their car with a mask on...now I almost expect it.

somewhat funny but also a bit serious. The only way we beat this is to not pass it on

My observation is that a lot of the closing is at the discretion of local governments ,  Conservation Authorities and parks depts. One jurisdiction the public ones are open and next door barricaded.
