#322783 Someone get this kid a real rod

Posted by iJay on 10 April 2015 - 11:26 AM

Awesome! I remember when I was younger I was fishing with my grandfather and we weren't catching anything. A young boy came over and asked if he could borrow a lure from my grandfather. He said why not tossed him a random lure (wasnt the nicest piece of tackle either). Kid tosses this thing out there and hauls in a beautiful salmon. My grandfather couldnt believe it!



These are the stories legends being with.

#316008 MNR Tips line works!!!

Posted by iJay on 18 September 2014 - 11:19 AM

This weekend we went out to Ottawa for the weekend. On our way back we had planned to stop at an East Trib, as my luck would have it. I discovered that I had forgot to pack my rod and gear when we got there.


Apon pulling up I could see the fish were in thick, but there were also ALOT of vehicles. My wife was so excited to spectate ( I was mad about forgetting my rod) so we stood at the rivers edge. Saw everything from Spoons to people with heavy weighted lines and multiple treble hooks on their lines.


To say the least I was pretty upset but wasn't prepared to say anything to anyone. I had my wife and 7 week old son with me. Really not worth the risk. After seeing a couple of guys standing on the edge of what is clearly marked as a sanctuary, literally the guy was standing below the sign and tossing their line about 30m into the sanctuary and yanking their rods back. Clearly snagging. I called into the MNR tips line, They asked that I take pictures if I could do so safely (which I was able to). 


After the phone call ended we left to head back home.


Today I am sitting at work, my phone rings "Unknown" which I normally wouldn't pick up, but did for some strange reason. Person confirms who I am, then says he is Conservation officer ...... thanked me for my call, they were patrolling in plain clothes and were able to video record and charge this group of guys for a total of $1700 in fines.


I did thank him for calling back, I think its really cool and a very important part of civilians taking the time out to report these kinds of things. End of the day I am looking to preserve this fishery for my son and his friends to enjoy if they so choose to. :mrgreen:

Throwing rocks at or around people can end up in legal actions. All you need was a video and to feel you are threatened you have been able to persue at very least assult charges. 


Again- if one of those rocks hit you, would it have been worth it?

I stand corrected.


InCanada, you can film anyone in public as long as you are on public property


I apologize. I mis-read my materials earlier. I was looking into the Private property act.

I don't get it either. A conversation I had with the MNR CO kinda confused me a little but also did educate me alot.

SALMON ARE NOT NATIVE to these waters. Somehow Chinnys have been successfully replanted and stocked. They have no issues reproducing in our waters. Thus the 10 fish limit. Rainbow Trout on the other hand are still struglling with survival in our waters and are still showing signs of evolving and settling in our waters. thus the 2 fish limit.


Salmon- They do reproduce and die, everyone knows this. I thnk the education needs to come in where the life cycle comes in. Also I think the subject has been beat to death, you are going to solve anything sitting behind a computer bitching and complaing. Other than an online movement there isnt anything that can be done from behind your computer.

#281182 Salmon in the rivers yet.

Posted by iJay on 29 August 2013 - 02:36 PM

Chill? Bro there is like 10 threads going on about Salmon locations r tips tricks and all kinda stupidness.


I think you are taking this as a personal thing. But it isn't get over it.


What is the issue with people going out and spotting fish on thier own. I know I spent over 2 hours each way in transit last weekend and I will be traveling even further this weekend. Talk about fuel? And I gotta take Remy's heavy ass. FOCK man get a grip.


Bass if you ask me are garbage, they arent hard to catch, can be found in most still waters. Not much of a fight. 18lbs line to catch a 2-7lbs fish. Right where is the challenge? Go to a lake, look for lilly pads, branches in the water a bit of shade and BAM there is Bass. They can populate a lake in no time they are not illusive, they are not spooked very easily. If this hurts your feelings. Call Dr.Phil.

This thread should be deleted along with the other ones.


Sorry to be a douche, but get your a$$ off the couch and go and check the rivers. If gas is too much to be wasting, how the hell u gonna afford good gear? SHUT UP with this crap already!

Just so I don't sound like a bigger douchebag than I really am.


All of this "Salmon run" info shows up in google. Also I think this site should really start to keep the boards private untill signed up.

#273857 Maybe have OFF fishing events?

Posted by iJay on 04 July 2013 - 08:37 AM

I would most definatly participate. I refuse to wash my hands. I do plan on disposing of any soap I find!

I would have to plan and budget for a weekend away. Sounds like alot of fun even if we could come out for the day, bbq fish and learn!

Alot of members such as myself have recieved a tremendous amount of repsonse from other mebers, what better way to see this come into fruition? (If thats even a word)

Posted by iJay on 05 June 2013 - 01:11 PM

That sucks that a show like that would be on tv. I am sure them making sturgeon fishing all fun there will now be more pressure on fishing, if not some redneck is gonna wanna eat this "stergeon steak"


Really sucks.

Posted by iJay on 03 June 2013 - 04:19 PM

Thanks. Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, I had to email my dad's friend for the location, like I said. We were fishing at Lynde Shores Conservation Area, please remember to stay to the designated fishing spots and clean up any garbage you see.


Thank you sir!!!
