Speaking of fishin' ....

Can't help but brag .....

Spent last weekend in beautiful Prince Edward County goin' after the big lads. A successful start Friday night ... 3 small mouth bass in the 4 lb range, forgot the camera ... dammit.

Anyhow ... my BIL and I spent a great Saturday after the salmon and brought three in ... not huge by salmon standards but a great catch. Fire up the smoker !

Caught about 11 miles south of Salmon Point.

An early start to the fishin' ...

nets a Smiths Falls and a Merrickville man some trouble with the feds.....

The court was told that on the night of May 10, 2007 conservation officers from the Pembroke office of the Ministry of Natural Resources encountered the men outside their camp in North Frontenac Township, southwest of the village of Calabogie.

The walleye season in that area did not open until May 12, 2007. The 17 walleye and various pieces of fishing equipment seized when charges were laid have been forfeited to the Crown.

If only they had a band card .... then it's ok to fish off season. Because ....

Anglers are reminded to observe the fishing seasons. In most cases these seasons are designed to protect spawning fish when they are very susceptible to angling.

"An important step in history here today"

That's how mayor Dennis Staples characterizes the signing of an agreement in principal for a commuter rail system yesterday.

"This has the potential to be a tremendous benefit for all municipalities involved."

I agree.
