  1. I'd be careful posting using gobies for bait...
  2. Ok. Thanks. That is what I thought. A little too tall for what I was looking for. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. How long is it? Flat bottom? I'm actually looking to build a rustic bookshelf from a canoe or boat. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Nice!!! I have not caught a pike up there in a few years. A guy in our camp fishes for walleye and catches almost nothing all week, except a few pike. Not sure why they avoid me. We did try casting Stick baits for them one afternoon but only hooked a few largemouth. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Pap - never had a problem like that. I have been stopped and inspected several times, but always knowledgeable and courteous. LTF - I'm not surprised you found them a little shallower. I tend to fish the deeper structure than many. Also, since I fish light tackle with a lot of scope, it's hard to know exactly the depth of the bite - though you can usually feel the structure on the way up. Did you try any night trolling?
  6. Yep. For both stealth and abrasion resistance. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. They are still there. There are some reports here with how to deal with the gobies. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. I have, and it can be effective, especially on clear nights. However, I fish for close to 8 hours in the morning, often a couple hours in the afternoon, and then after a couple beers back on land I'm ready for bed at dark. Plus - I really don't enjoy trolling for walleyes. I like to jig for eaters. Many guys like to troll for trophies. On Gull Lake you would be trolling for eaters, which I don't really enjoy. However, you can put some nice fillets in the freezer with a couple hours of night trolling.
  9. I think you guys must be using way heavier jigs than I do. For lead heads I use 1/4 oz most of the time. Occasionally 3/8. Never bigger. The round body bucktails are usually 1/2 oz and the body style snags easily. I like the stand-up style, and this particular one has a separate eye to tie on a stinger. https://shop.northlandtackle.com/seasonal-tackle/open-water-fishing/stand-up-fire-ball-jig/
  10. I thin you stay at Kirks? I stay around the corner at Newtons. I didn't really go pat the end of Boundry Island all week. Right in front of Kirks and the South side of Boundry was where I fished. My 115 used less than 6 gallons of gas for the whole week! Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  11. I think I only broke off once. I use the lightest slip sinker I can get away with, typically 1/4 ounce or less. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  12. 18 to 25 feet in structure. Floating jigs with slip sinkers. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  13. Still available. Make offer. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  14. I hear ya. So far my system has worked. The day I have to transport whole, frozen walleyes will be the last day that I spend any money in Canada...
  15. I have been stopped at the border twice by the MNR for inspection since the slot limit. I asked them the preferred method for transporting fish, and they were happy with what I had (1 fish per bag with skin on). The only improvement they suggested was to freeze with filets next to each other skin side up instead of meat to meat to show that there were no smaller fish between the filets. They did not indicate a preference for transporting whole fish. Video here: https://www.ontario.ca/page/packaging-transporting-or-exporting-fish
