  1. Launch is being totally rebuilt. Has been underwater since May. Water has finally receded to the point where work can start again if the soil is stable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Tie a rope to the bottom of the net. Tie the other end to the bottom of the handle. When netting the fish pull the rope so the net is tight. Pull the fish to you and net Head first, always. See pic attached
  3. Hi, Its an easy process to get it, http://www.torontoport.com/Port/Power-Vessel-Operators-Permit.aspx . It involves a multiple choice test on basic boat operating (if you pass the boaters operator card you can pass this) and an open water man overboard practical test using a small Boston whaler with your classmates Tests take place on Thursdays from the outer harbour marina off leslie spit. and you have to reserve a spot and pick up the paperwork or have it mailed before so you can study. You are subject to a fine if you operate in the port of Toronto which extends east to the water filtration plant at Queen and Victoria park and all the way to Humber river about 2 miles offshore. http://www.torontoport.com/TorontoPortAuthority/media/TPASiteAssets/port/yurisdiction.png As to whether or not the fishing is worth it, I got mine about 3 weeks ago so I could take the family to centre island, but I also heard the bass and pike fishing around Toronto islands is amazing. I used to launch out of the public launch at ashbridges and I didn't know it at the time but I should have had the permit at the time. No one ever stopped me, I think it's a case of dont be a fool on the water and you won't be bothered though $30 and a morning is all it takes. Good luck
  4. Try reading previous June (ie 2012, 2011 etc) posts for the areas you are considering that should give you an idea. I know there will be some variation year to year but fish are caught mid June around PC and the bluffs in June. Good luck
