    Had a 2 week canoe trip cancelled last year because of Covid, as one of participants is American. Hopefully this year.

    481/2” he got it after dark too. I don’t know the weight because the digital scale decided to go wonky and wanted to get it back in quick. I guessed around 30lbs. :)
    My biggest was 18 & change so he kicked my butt

    I am a casual fisher at best - haven't even gone fishing in a couple years, and I live 2 blocks from the Detroit River (east side of Windsor, not near industrial Detroit) and great fishing. Can easily catch perch, pickerel, small and large mouth bass, among others, and that's just casting from shore. I've seen people pull up northern pike, and muskie even. Did you all know that the Detroit River is also know for it's Lake Sturgeon?!......

    Check out this big girl recently caught in the Detroit River..... 6'10", 240 lbs!!!!
    240 Pound Fish Caught In The Detroit River

    I don't think Sturgeon are present in my area of the river, as I am really close to Lake St. Clair, but are more likely further downriver towards the area of the industrial are in the west end and towards Lake Erie.

    I am not much of a fish person, but fresh caught perch/pickerel(walleye I always assoc with as the American term for pickerel) from Lake Erie or Detroit River (yes...it's fine now) is so readily available here and it's fantastic. I really have to try Crappie one of these days.

    Salmon - had a bad experience with a salmon h'orderve (it was a paste on a cracker), and have never even looked at it again!

    Haha cool they need a bigger live well. You’ll have to get out and get back at it bro. Perch are delicious and I’m definitely going for them more this year.

    Bass season here right now. No time to get out as finishing up renos. Sucks because the river is literally like 50 meters from my window.

    I can’t wait for bass season. Pulling boat out this weekend. Takes a full two days to rig it and wax the damn thing. Hopefully covid rules can relax and be able to fish tournaments again. It was tough last season with everything. Heck even the fish were practicing social distancing. Lol.

    I'll tell a true 'outdoors' story about someone who'll I'll call 'Useless'. Useless was a drunk and a loser.
    Well he inherited his father's boat, motor, guns, massive tackle box, etc.
    Useless decided to go hunting for duck. We're from up northern Ontario and the lake he was on was fairly big. With their boat to go from one end to the other and back would take a complete day. Anyways with such a long voyage to their hunting spot, Useless and his friend decide to do two things. Fish and drink. They were successful at both, having got quite hammered and landed a very big pike. Quietly they got to their marsh, were getting their shotguns ready when BANG BANG BANG, the pike had sprung to life. Before they could get a shot off, the ducks were gone. Useless was pissed, so... he shot the fish. The fish in the bottom of the boat...

    I don't have, or have access to a boat, but the city park at the end of my street has platform which is a popular fishing spot. Depending the day/conditions, I could go down there with worms and a spreader and pull up a couple perch at a time. The 3 lb smallmouth I caught with a tube lure (you slide them on of those hooks that have a cylindrical weight), and just pull up a chair and cast.

    Detroit River has such a strong current, and you can't get too far or deep from shore. You generally need a pretty heavy weight. Have to be careful in a boat too as you can't cross the border line, plus there can be lots of big ships around too.

    Mostly stay around home, day trips, from where I live I can hit any ATV/SXS trail in NB. I can walk from my house to a river to fish trout, easily most are a foot long. Not a fan of Trout though so I don't fish there much. I'm a big fan of Salmon, I can be in Miramichi in 2hrs. One of the best spots on the East cost of North America to fish those giants.
