  1. Tight lips

    " spoon fed " ; good pun !
  2. Rate this spoon box for a newbie

    Just a start ! Salmon fishing ain't cheap be prepared !
  3. Many dittos here ! #1 Why does L.O.U. allow " Mike Jones " [ probably a " nom du plume " ] posts to stand ? #2 Clearly this guy ? is baiting [ get your jollies somewhere else !] #3 It was poaching and illegal harvesting that partly wiped out the walleye fishery in the lower Niagara river and south shore of Lake O. in the 1950s . nuf said by me !
  4. J plugs / silver horde

    They are not as " hot " as they used to be in the fantastic 80's and 90's but I will run one every trip ! My best recent was a #5 [ big] flo white black ladder back [ would have won the brown trout category at 14+ lbs. in the summer derby but 2 wks late ! ] I would start with a # 3 #4 in green black ladderback and chartreuse black ladderback . Good luck !
  5. We mentor young hunters ;one of them bought a Remington 870 new was very disappointed with the quality of the workmanship :first time out took all four geese next time a coyote at 5 yrds !
  6. Florida school shooting

    Bottom line for me as I understand it the FBI had enough notice to take his guy in ; apparently they did not do their job ! This has nothing to do with " Second Amendment Rights ! "
  7. We all have our experiences : I purchased a Remington 597 semi-auto in 17 cal. rimfire : Read in the back pages of a shooting mag. that the gun had a tendency for shell cases to split and not to shoot the gun ! Remington apparently condescended a $200 credit on the purchase of another firearm [ purchased gun new ; purchase was registered no recall notice ] I will only be cheated once !
  8. Northern king spoons

    NK's were great spoons when they first come out ; I will run them every outing but the " bite " changes every year !
  9. Friday , Feb . 23 , 2018 : Merritton Community Centre 7 Park Ave ., St. Catharines Ontario [ a lot of general " stuff " not just guns ] : Call Gerry @ 905 - 685-4480 .
  10. Storing my boat outside in winter

    Mice can carry diseases along with the damage they can do ; I poison and trap them !
  11. Have you seen these?

    I have too much stuff already !
  12. New to predator hunting- advice needed

    Rifle : 223 / 5.56 . How much do you want to spend ? I use a Browning BLR [ almost as fast as a semi-auto ] Shotgun 12 gauge 40 buckshot [ coyotes are either too far away or too close ; our last one was taken on Dec 23 at 5 yds running at the shooter !] Optics again how much do you want to spend ? My Leupold works just fine ! Only hand held calls [ bellows type ] have worked for us ! Decoys not working yet but we keep trying !
  13. (iso) probe recovery service

    Just the cost of salmon fishing !
  14. Any rabbit Hunter’s

    The coyotes have devastated our rabbit population in NOTL Ont !
  15. Newb Questions (Bear with me)

    `Start with Dan Keating 's books ; ie " Keating on Kings " as a basic then move on with other editions ! All the information you need can be found on this site or " Spoonpullers " ! ps. great pun on the bear / bare ! pps. My family doctor was out on smaller Ontario lake seeing an open boat apparently adrift without anyone on board : Had to check it out found 2 bares ; told them " once a king always king but once a knight is enough ! "
  16. Food plothelp

    Rabbits have been my main " predator " of young pear and apple trees ; tree wrap works + spray bark with a strong smell insecticide such as diazinon !
  17. Food plothelp

    ? For the long term peripheral fruit eg apple and pear and forage nut trees ?
  18. Help identifying tracks...

    FYI American Frontiersman mag winter 2018 did an article pg.58 " Finessing Fishers " ! ps Today us Seinfeld fans celebrate " Festivus " sic !
  19. Wife wins again.

    Looks like a keeper !
  20. to many wires going to my batteries

    Not sure this is an answer to your ? but I put a kill switch to the negative of my battery [ when done the battery is taken out of the circuit to eliminate chance of a leak or short ] . as posted use a fuse panel with fuses of the correct low rating !
  21. Any update in the report of a woman shot ? after dark by ? deer hunter ?
  22. Atlantics

    Not sure why one would eat old spawning fish who may be in a process of natural decomposition ; the problem may have been in the preparation ( bears are omnivores will eat almost anything !)
  23. Not sure of the benzene analogy ; I wash my hands with Ivory soap [ no scent ] before starting to fish to decrease my human scent on the lures ! One of my friends would routinely clean his hands with PCBs dies a slow death from lymphoma which he blamed on over work [ he did not have the TIME to fish and would not take mine fish ] Maybe this thread is over !
  24. Below covers title

    Woman walking dog shot by ? Hunter !
  25. A lot healthier than smoking tobacco or marihuana ! " Rubber on the road " ! No proven health risks from eating fish from Lake Ontario or Lake Erie : I have been eating them for 60 + years ( all the guys I started with on Lake O who liked sausage hamburg etc and did not eat my fish are dead ! Not sure of the connection ) and I remain in great shape ! ( slowing down a bit " Once a king always a king but once a knight is enough !)
