When Life Throws you Lemons….

…you type with one hand!

Bad luck for me folks. I broke my left hand in a biking incident involving a driver (who wasn’t paying attention) in Montreal. It could have been worse, other than my hand and a couple stiches I’m fine. My fishing season, at least until October however, is not. Right now I can’t tie my shoes let alone a uni-to-uni knot. I might be able to operate my boat with a little help getting it in the water but fishing is not happening for at least a few weeks unfortunately. Soooo…..For now this blog belongs to you guys, the readers. Alex who is a great contributor and regular reader has sent me pics of his latest trip to mighty Lake Ontario. On his recent trip up there fishing with Yvan Rousseau Alex and his crew boated 17 beautiful Steelhead and a very respectable Chinook. Thanks for the pics Alex! On a side note, looks like there are Rousseaus everywhere who know their way around a lake 😉

If anyone else would like to share pics or stories during my convalescence just let me know in the comment box, leave your email address (not in the comment itself but rather in the required field) and I’ll post it up!

Hart’s Bar 2010 Walleye Tournament RESULTS!

Harts

Hey guys,

Here are some videos and pictures I took from the Walleye Tournament at Hart’s bar this year including an interview with one of the winners Robin Casgrain. The biggest fish caught was just under 9lbs and the best 3 fish total weight was brought to the weigh-in by the team of Wally and Robin Casgrain who went home 1000$ richer.

Personally although I had a blast and caught a good number of fish (including a nice musky and a few smallies) I wasn’t able to boat a fish bigger than 2lbs to save my life. I had a fantastic time and can’t wait for next year. Kyle is hoping for 30 boats next year so if you are on the fence about joining in find a partner and come have a blast. There are tons of door prizes and it’s just a great day from start to finish. This is a great event that I’m sure it will only get better with time. I want to personally thank Kyle Laframboise and those who helped for putting this together. I would also like to thank the folks at Hart’s bar who served breakfast in the morning and cold refreshements in the afternoon. The staff is a friendly bunch and added a lot to the experience. Enjoy the vids!
