  1. It was me fishing in the spot Lorne - I was the swim jumper! I even mentioned that in future we would make room for him to come and fish the spot with us - hardly staking a claim over the spot? - quite the opposite in fact I was making a joke with David (hence the wink) but yet again, you still have to have add another of your sly little digs
  2. you see - that's what happens when you share your spots - you get swim jumpers turning up and stopping you get in there I'm pretty sure there was room for you to squeeze in next to them if it happens again and said anglers will be more than happy for you to join them The fishing out on TT has been very sporadic this year. One week there are multiple catches then the following week it's blanks all around. Very little weed growth this year as well and I wonder if that has anything with it? Also a lot of fresh water coming into the lake from the surrounding rivers. Really glad your leg is on th
  3. we were up there that weekend as well and had a fantastic time. Well done on your fish! where abouts were you fishing? PM if preferred.
  4. I think it's best to just give it a try. I have seen fish stay well clear of bait I thought was perfectly ok while on other occasions I have seen them go mad over something that has made me gag when i have opened the bucket. carp are definitely attracted to some of the protiens that are given off during fermentation of food however when that changes to actually rotting is hard to know.
  5. long sault is well worth the trip - not many cottages on the river but some great camp sites. on a good day you can do the trip from TO in 3.5 hours.
  6. had a great day out there with Arvand and the guys - one of the best days of the year for me so far. lots more wildlife out there this year too - TT really is a credit to Toronto. not sure who had the objections you are on about. unfortunately there has been quite an increase in litter in the spots this year but I guess #### happens when you get more people heading out there. we have been tidying it all up after every trip to try and keep the place looking beautiful. anyone want to hook up for a trip out there then lmk and we can arrange something. also hat doffed to David and TUFA again - the

    short runs

    Darrin - was it actually taking line from your spool? if it was then it probably not a line bite and your rigs are to blame. don't worry too much about it though - it happens to everyone and could be down to a multitude of things. from hook types, hair length, rig length, bait size, hook size, baiting situation and the spot you are fishing. you are getting pickups in the first place and that's half the battle - they are eating where you put your bait and eating your bait - you are most of the way there. your rig is a good start but may need tweaking slightly. if it happens again I would wait u
  8. fish however you want. fish for yourself and no one else. take pleasure from each fish you catch and those that people around you catch. if your method isn't affecting others around you, if it isn't affecting the fish (you use proper fish care and return them unharmed) and if it isn't in the rules and you are willing to pay the consequences then who cares? same should be said for commenting on others fishing. if it doesn't effect you, your fishing or your safety, the fishes safety then why do you actually care? be-littling others catches, calling them cheats, not a man etc? what's the point? f
  9. I know exactly how Shawn feels about this because I spent a good part of the weekend telling him about the great things that Dave was doing in Toronto and listening to his concerns about the people already fishing the park as the same crap that has been going on in Hamilton, along the Humber, JC and the Rouge River happening again. You can interpret his comments however you want. I know what he's on about and I reckon it's a valid point. He knows what it takes to fish there. He knows the effort that people put in - that's why he hasn't fished there himself No one said anything about the whole
  10. it was paid for with tax dollars and a lot of hard work for people to enjoy, yes, not for people to ruin and litter at other users expense that is my concern. With respect to sharing the fishing - Mike's post above is spot on - whether you like it or not Lorne it's certainly an issue now - you have to remember that not everyone wants the same from their fishing as you. I know people are already posting pictures of fish on FB of fish from locations from months ago to throw 'blinds' to reduce numbers of people fishing productive spots. In fact last weekend I was told what I am pretty sure was a
  11. I disagree Lorne. On more than one occasion I have spoken to people on the bank that tell me about area's to fish because they have seen pictures of people with fish there on the internet (Not members of CAG either). Look at the Fish In Canada show last year - from the landmarks shown on that, it was easy to work out exactly where they were fishing and it was discussed on here (I am as guilty as the next man). When Dave caught his biggun earlier in the year, there were people on FB speculating where it came from and I could tell in seconds where it was from the background (I was aware of the s
  12. It's been a pleasure speaking to you a couple of times mr tangledline (at a certain outer harbor spot - the last time we spoke was through some fencing a couple of weeks back and you were talking about raspberry juice ). great to hear you are catching out on TT - maybe see you out there at some point for some truly wild fishing. all the best. jamie
  13. if anyone is going to give it a go - a few things to take into consideration. it's only open to the public at the weekends from 8-5. there are no cars on the spit and no nearby parking so you have to walk to the spots. it's over 5km to the furthest points and finally there are loads of fire ants along the shoreline and they are savage. it's also worth checking the bird sanctury area's as some of the shore is also out of bounds at certain times of the year (as mr tangledline mentions above). as long as you remember the above then there is some good fishing to be had out there.
  14. where is the dead duck swim? private message me if preferred if you have no car, where are you travelling from - lmk as I may be able to suggest somewhere I would love to head out to the islands soon - we had a great trip out there last year (no fish) but I'd like to head out there again for the day at some point. the fish seem to have moved into the edge along the waterfront in toronto so good luck.
  15. those 4000 d's aren't the biggest reel are they? I know of someone who has similar problems with the smaller baitrunner reel and heavy braid and found their vcasting to be restricted. the crosscast doesn't have the baitrunner function but I am told the drag is much better - I have used both Daiwa and Shimano reels and have found the drags to be much better on the Daiwa's. another option is the new mitchell avocast reels that CarpKit are getting in - I haven't heard a bad thing about them yet. May well be worth checking out
  16. nice one Nick - good thinking! That's a great list but maybe you could add the following to help people? You should always handle the carp with wet hands. If fishing the summer - make sure the unhooking mat is wet and cool before placing the carp on it. If possible, keep a bucket of water close by to pour on the fish - pay attention to getting water into it's gills. Don't rush anything - you are less likely to damage a carp when taking your time - an extra minute or so will not harm the carp. If possibly transport the carp in a sling, mat or net - this will minimise the risk of it being droppe
  17. well done mr tangledline. absolute stunner!
  18. can't believe no one has mentioned a headtorch - easily the most important bit of tackle for night fishing IMO. it completely changed the way I fished.
  19. try soaking them in neat full fat coke instead of water and them boiling them in it as well. works a treat. one of the great things about tigers is that the fish eat them, crap them out and then eat them again. a small amount can go a very long way!
  20. Stickybaits are now owned and run by one of the guys at Erics Angling (Tom Anderson i think) - It may be worth dropping them an email and asking?
  21. I have a couple of Tubs of S1's and S2's to try out in Ontario this spring. He has sorted me out some special barrels to try over here as well. I have to admit they smell / taste lovely. How do you know Mark?
  22. if they are not working on your DVD player then have a look for a multi-region hack and set your DVD player region to 0 usually it's just a case of pressing some buttons on your remote control in a certain order to access a menu screen and then you change it in there. the Nash one on Youtube is great although 5 mins of Nigel Sharp is about 4 mins 55 seconds too long
  23. goldfish are nice to look at in a fish bowl or to use as livebait for pike. apart from that - meh! can't see the attraction in them myself and definitely wouldn;t set out to try and catch one.
  24. For anyone who is interested - there is a huge article on Ontario Carp fishing by Rob Maylin in this months Big Carp magazine (14 pages long) There are loads of pictures and area's covered from the carping trip that was covered on Fish n Canada which make it an interesting read and you should be able recognize a few of the spots they are fishing. he doesn't seem to know the difference between Hamilton Harbor and lake Eerie though which made me smile Well worth tracking down if you can find a copy.
