Fishing the North

A how-to for female anglers

Over the years of tournament fishing, I have seen many trends arrive. One of these trends have been more women participating in tournaments each year.

A young angler to watch

One of the things I enjoy about fishing is meeting new anglers. This spring I had the opportunity of being added to the Wannabe Fisherman Pro Staff Team along with Taylor Klimczak, a young angler. Taylor started fishing at the age of 5.

Ice safety, it's your life

With winter coming and the first ice starting to appear, I thought I would write a little reminder to use extreme caution when venturing out on new ice.

How to stay warm on the ice for around about $100

With winter coming and the lakes starting to freeze, ice anglers are chomping at the bit while they wait for safe ice to come.

Angler profile: Like a Rock

I met Rock Bouchard back in 1993 after catching a nice fourteen and half inch perch. I heard about his taxidermy work so decided to bring him my perch to mount for me. When I walked into his shop I was taken aback by the quality of work he did.

Alain takes one last quad ride and gets a big surprise

Every spring, many moose hunters apply in the moose draw for chance of being picked for a tag. This year in Zone 29 - which is one in the Timmins area - there were 47 Bull and 362 Cow moose tags available for the archery draw.

A day on the docks

This past Sunday I was watching the weather network during lunch and they were saying that a cold front would be coming in around one o'clock.

Boissoneault and Dallaire get it done

September 6 and 7 saw anglers from across Northeastern Ontario heading to compete in the Mattagami First Nation Fall Walleye Classic for a chance at winning the first place prize of $8000.

Hey Eric. You're one heck of a fisherman!

I have always said that there are so many good anglers living in Northeastern Ontario. Some enjoy fishing with friends and family while others enjoy tournament fishing. Then you have the anglers such as Eric Germain which enjoys both.
