  1. Thanks..appreciate the info. I anticipate getting into Canadian waters more in the future. Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  2. I put this in the musky forum given the assumption the musky guys do more border zigzagging than most. At a boat show in Clayton this spring there were some Canadian customs guys wandering around and I had a chat with em. They said...if fishing in Canadian waters you can call in for clearance if you have a nexus card. If not you're supposed to check in physically. That goes for all on the boat. He went into how you'll be warned the first time and if there's a second time it could get ugly. This sounds like big PITA. I don't venture over there often. For me it would be out off the mouth of the SLR by charity or pigeon shoal. Sure I can get a nexus card but odds are good that at times I'll have someone with me w/o one. Id be reluctant to go all the way to wolf island or kingston to check in. Did I interpret all this correctly? Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. The fat slob is from JH Baits in Barrie not. Pricy things..he quoted me $350 Canadian for 4 of em...ouch! I'll start out with 1 or 2 once I figure out what colors to ask for. Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. Hello all...i got lots of good info when I started this thread last summer. Right now it's the ca-ching sound of the cash register as I work on collecting lures etc for the upcoming season. Lol.. I'm looking at bucktails now. What are your favorite colors for the SLR area? Has anyone used the "fat slob" bucktails made up in Ontario.? They're look great to me....any other bucktails suggestions? Thanks! Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Saw a couple guys this past weekend at mud bay with a 5 gal bucket full of bullhead along with a couple bonus channel cats in the 12lb or so range. Must of been fun. They kept the cats to eat which I'm not sure if do... Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. The way it was explained to me...higher water is good thing although it's at extreme right now. Northerns and musky will go into swamps that have been dry in recent years ..spawn and head back to lake. Water will recede to point that predators will not be able to get into swamp.. pike and musky fry will have a year to grow before going into lake. This bodes well for future if they stay with " The plan". Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Not judging nor trying to stir things...just an observation. Again...mount looks beautiful. Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  8. Nice mount...that's the fish that caused quite a stink on the board here because it wasn't released, though it was apparently hurt pretty bad. Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app

  12. This sat I finally got on the water musky trolling for the first time. I decided to start by flat lining 2 grandma's back 115 and 125 feet.... at about 3 mph +- a tenth or 2. I worked a area where it dropped off quickly near shore and marked a lot of bait. On the 2nd pass my 10' heavy trolling rod got taken straight back in a way only 20+ lb kings had done in the past. The problem was I couldn't get the damned rod out of the holder! That made for a poor set and end of fight. It sure got the adrenaline goin though. My perch colored grandma has its first teeth marks. Lesson learned...different rod holders needed. Musky 1 me nothin...but I'll be back! Sent from my SM-G920V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
