  1. looks like one of my favourite...Hooksters?
  2. Be nice if you did a Fort Erie delivery
  3. I don't know if you boys know how lucky you are with that strain of brown. Your Fish&Wildlife has developed a pretty damn good strain for the south shore. On the Canuck side our brood stock are obtained from a strain of 'small' stream genetics... very seldom changed or updated and very little fish caught. Our's are also stocked along the wrong spots on our side of the lake. Again, I tip my hat to your officials. In my opinion they are doing a pretty damn good job, and a tough job at that.
  4. Minnownite...I just moved to Buckhorn from Fort Erie / Point Abino and might be looking for a place to keep the Mako down your way next winter... Hell, I may even being moving again myself down to Norfolk/Dover 705-657-9753 ... your location is really ideal for Erie and Ontario. Please keep me in mind [email protected]
  5. No CL, just the straight 6500 and again between say 1970 and probably before 80... They had no plastic on the back or top bars as a thumb bar or finger protector, each is totally flat with no curvature, and the handles on the reel are not oversized and evenly spaced on the screw down. Simple but neat and there must be thousands of the darn things collecting cobwebs in garage corners everywhere. I believe and could be wrong they sold for around 75 to 100 bucks back then, but what a little workhorse
  6. Hi guys, I'm looking to purchase a pair of the original 70's - 80's Abu Garcia round 6500 level wind reels. These are all steel with the push button drag release on the top of of the reel, not the thumb bar style. All silver or plated. Smaller than the 700 series used by the charter guys in the old early days of the fishery. Again, thank you Cronzy
  7. Hi guys, I'm looking to purchase a pair of the original 70's - 80's Abu Garcia round 6500 level wind reels. These are all steel with the push button drag release on the top or side of the reel, not the thumb bar style. All silver or plated. Smaller than the 700 series used by the charter guys in the old early days of the fishery. Again, thank you Cronzy
  8. Thanks Capt Lou, but I just bought a bunch over the last two weeks
  9. Be mice...I heard you like those occasional French visitors so much you offer to clean their catch for them down your way
  10. still polish and still a ball and chain,,,don't use the word 'cheap'...they don't make the damn things anymore, not for 20 or more years...and i am not buying them back for almost 10 bucks apiece when I sold the old fart about 200 5 years ago for less than a buck and now he wants me to pay almost 10 bucks each lol...if you were nice you would go dragging bottom of Bowmanville and see if you bring some up for me. lol
  11. Hey Mr. 580..I'll take them. Down in the Keys for another week and half. I'm near Buffalo and can drive to pick them up and pay... [email protected] ...not my preferred colors but they will do fine...thank you
  12. thanks..when i made the last move i had a monster sale..a tackle friend of mine got dozens off me for a bout a buck a piece...the old fart wants to sell them back to me at 8 bucks apiece.......friends
  13. sold it to my partner about 5 years ago.. i think it's still at canadian tire...why want to trade for the spoons? I have about a dozen left in the freezer
  14. they came in two sizes...about 5 inches and about 7 or 8 inches..i'm looking for the smaller
  15. I'm begging for Hooksters I'm looking for the small size Hookster spoons by Producer Lures in one color combination only. Black with chartreuse ladder back tape on one side / white paint on the opposite underbelly. Darryl Choronzey [email protected]

  17. Guys, I really don't want to invade a board, don't want to bang heads with with anyone. If you guys really know me, you know that I love what New York puts into the lake and the results you guys have produced The fishery right now is pretty great, The bait situation is nowhere near what it was when us 'old guys' were around originally, but I honestly believe your boys in charge are doing as pretty good job Come on Canadadude..who are you really??? I know who you are, but tell the rest of this board... Hope this doesn't happen in the states, but this is the reason why we stock almost a million Atlantics a year with only 11 back. Thanks for providing a great fishery
  18. Well Canadadude ( won't ask you to quit hiding behind a make believe) I won't say that a program that has been going steady since 1987 is still in it's infancy. Or the fact that 8 million fish have been stocked and only 9 came back to the Credit at Streetsville is nothing really to worry about. As for me and the old boys having a hate on for the MNR for the rest of our lives, surprisingly, myself and few other old boys work pretty closely with the MNR. Come on up to the Saugeen where we've improved a steelhead run from approximately 2500-3000 to upwards of 50,000 adult steelhead. What me and few old boys as you put it do have a hate on is the close to one million atlantics stocked every year, the waste of paying the upkeep of more than 7,000 broodstock, the misuse of hatchery space for this grand plan....and not even attempting to pick a better small river or two in the east end of the lake. Why not save the waste and simply do what New York does and cap the number of Atlantics stocked to between 50,000-100,000. And again, the million or more pledged to the ofah for this idiocy is still coming out of taxpayers pockets one way or the other. As I said I work pretty close with more than a few in the MNR and even from this ministry we are getting the warnings back about the effects of the new plans and that includes in house warnings from some that there's only so much money and hatchery space and native fish will come first and foremost. It maybe the 'same crap and just a different day', but maybe we can see you out on a river collecting eggs or moving fish or even working in a hatchery. You might already be doing that, but since I don't know who you are, I doubt it very much. As for your 'croaker' rainbows, blame the Ontario mnr...they haven't changed or refreshed their brood stock in eons, although us old boys have suggested over and over that we could easily supply them with 'wild' eggs from the Saugeen that are disease tested and free and also are the same genetics used by New York, Michigan and Wisconsin in their 'wild' program. More and more Ontario anglers are hitting the Blue Zone and I would bet my last lure that the majority of those 'wild' steelhead are New York stocked. The same holds true for the majority of kings and coho that feed off the Ontario shore right up until early to mid august. You see, I'm more than ready to acknowledge that New York runs their fishery more like a business and not a grand experiment. Read the link guys, and make you own decision on which way Ontario is headed.
  19. DNRoach, here in Canada when you can pay the bills, you are never cancelled...it's call 67 and bad knees. Anyways, I was just explaining here in Ontario and it is not funny it is a mess. And really though you can't say they have the thiamine problem figured out at all. They know what causes the problem, but have absolutely no way of preventing it's deadly affects on returning fish , outside the hatchery laid eggs. Thiamine baths are great in a confined hatchery, but impossible in the wild. As for the Credit River, visit it one day. Urban sprawl, runoff, filtration plants etc just continue to make it worse as a target Atlantic rehabilitatiion stream. Truthfully, you could call it the river of no return. Your own fisheries people realize that we are eons away from making a suitable forage fish available in enough numbers to eliminate the problem. Like I said, I've never knocked New York's fisheries program , which is far and above my side of the border. But I do quite a bit of conversing back and forth with officials around the Great Lakes and only in Ontario does it seem that natural self-sustaining reproduction is the goal, while our American counterparts strive to provide a sport fishery first, rewards from the economy second and then natural reproduction.
