#340291 Legal fishing spots in Bowmanville Creek

Posted by ChromeAddict on 17 May 2017 - 08:23 AM

Should be kicked off the site for asking for gps coordinates in first post here. What an idiot. Break a rod buddy

Chill, he's probably new to river fishing. No need for that.

Greetings. New member here :)
I'll go to Bowmanville Creek to try fishing rainbow trout ( or others). Can anyone let me know where are the permitted fishing spots along the creek? Coordinates would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

Follow Aqua and Trouttamer's advice to find areas to fish on the creek. After the season opener, all the creeks in that area are productive for rainbow trout. Good luck!

You can fish inside the bay for salmon. They should start anytime now, Pike as well.

#330930 suffix vs spiderwire vs powerpro casting rod only lets start a war

Posted by ChromeAddict on 28 February 2016 - 09:22 PM

Between the three, power pro is my favorite. It held up to some angry salmon this fall, handles well, and retains it's color. I found that Sufix 832 would lose it's colour after a bit.

#329436 There are no SHORT CUTS

Posted by ChromeAddict on 30 December 2015 - 11:49 PM

I need to work on adjusting my rig before moving spots. I sometimes set my rig at the start of the day, and only adjust it once or twice throughout the day. I also seem to set up way too shallow for the areas I am fishing. It's all about learning. :)

#325795 A friendly reminder about Common Carp

Posted by ChromeAddict on 29 July 2015 - 12:35 PM

Just a reminder: Common carp are not invasive, throwing them on the bank to die is both gross and illegal. I was at Ashbridges bay today practicing my centerpin casting and saw a big dead carp with a brick on top of it. Really? If you don't like carp then don't target them, but grow up a little and have some decency. Rant over.

I love smallie fishing and usually find the first thing in the morning top water fishing the absolute best. However I've never tried fly fishing for them. How is it? I imagine the fight would be awesome as those little bastards put up a great fight!

I'm loving it! Even the little guys put up a good fight, and they are very plentiful. Not sure what I'll do when I get a big one, as my setup is pretty light, but it'll be fun for sure.

#324927 Help Identifying Musky Lakes in S. Ontario

Since you mention the Kawarthas, I'll just throw out there that I fish them all the time and have never caught or seen a muskie.

You could get a good combo for approx 200. For the rod, get a Fenwick HMG casting rod, and for the reel, look for a Shimano Caenan. That should put you at just over 200. For less, you could get a decent Rapala casting rod for 40-50$.

#321662 Chugging plugs and spitfire

Posted by ChromeAddict on 03 March 2015 - 10:37 PM

Fish them like a popper, but with longer twitches of the rod to give a 'chugging' motion. The lure in the last picture looks like it would do well fished with shorter jerks like you would work a popper. Try different retrieves, incorporating longer pops, shorter pops, and longer/shorter pauses in between pops until you start catching fish. Those lures should work well for bass (LM and SM), pike, muskie, and any other fish that feeds on baitfish near or on the surface.


Hope this helps!
