    Mono vs braid or nanofil

    Most of my braid was bought in Florida. Bulk from my tackle shop in Port Charlotte. Always used Seagaur flouro as leaders. Fair number of toothy critters in the salt. We mostly fish shrimp under a popping cork or freelined. Was just trying to see what everybody’s take on something different. Haven’t had a chance to get fishing anywhere this year as my wife is sick but doing fairly well. Have a few more screws to finish up the new autopilot and HDS 7 and we are hoping to get out for at least a shakedown on one of her better days next week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just checking before I try it. Possibly a new version? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I watched a SaltStrong video the other day that compared Seaguar blue label fluoro and Berkley vanish. Vanish is about 90% cheaper than Seaguar according to the video. I have used the Seaguar 15,20,40 and 65 lb flouro fishing in the Port Charlotte Florida area. I really liked it but it’s not cheap. The video shows a test done with the Seaguar and Vanish and Vanish seams to do slightly better in the abrasion test they do. Anyone ever use Vanish? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Pretty much already installed. Just checking on the wiring. Paid $499 Canadian for the pilot brand new from Cabelas in Ottawa. $749 for an HDS 7 Gen 3 Have $1500 Can into it. Most reviews here say they are happy with these units. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bass ripped off the beds

    I don’t remember ever having C&R for closed season fish. We have a 1-800 number for MNR. Like usual the loudest normally gets listened to the most. I can’t see how pulling numerous fish off their nests can be good for the fishery. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I know there is huge money in bass fishing but when the fish is sitting on a nest and will hammer anything in site, where’s the sport? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

    Get rid of catch and release . I don’t want to start a pissing match but most of the anglers that were causing the problem were out of province anglers. As I said out of season here means out of season. CO’s are busy this time of year but in 40 years on our lake I only got checked for a licence once. We need more COs but that is unlikely to happen. I try to get to Florida a couple of times a year and there are c&r there in salt water. I don’t fish for those fish as I don’t believe in catch and release out of season. I know there are going to be incidental catches. That will always happen but in my opinion C&R does way more harm than good. By the way I know that if I take my opinion and $2 to the coffee shop, they will give me a $2 coffee. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Your laws need to be changed inline with Ontario laws. If it’s out of season it is out of season. My parents just sold their place on a lake up here in Ontario. Every year the pinheads are up fishing ‘walleye’ . Throwing buzzbaits underneath the dock and our boat. Never seen a walleye under the dock or the boat. Called the Gamewarden 1 day. I told him meet me here , don’t bring your boat , I’ll drive you around. Too busy. I don’t understand why any place let’s you fish when the fish are spawning. It’s not just the gobies. It’s everything that swims. Pretty sore point with me too. Have a great day boys. Mitch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    For sure. This week is the second week after chemo and things went extremely well. It will be a last minute decision and left up to her. We have a renowned oncologist and had a meeting with him this morning. He was extremely pleased with how things are going so far. Just trying to get away from the same 4 walls.
