"Hello Steve, Evie & Nathan,

Of course that scenario may only apply to me, but as I mentioned before Christmas is one of the best times of the year for fisherman. Stores offer super combo discounts (rod, reel & line), in store rebates and buy one get one free deals.
Remember to be extremely specific when asking for fishing items for Christmas. Stores contain thousands and thousands of items, most of varying in minuscule increments. Fishing rods for example range from light action to extreme heavy action and vary often in 3-6" increments.
Here are a couple of items on my wish list for the up and coming fishing season at Big Hook Camps.
Power Pro #50 green braided line for pike. No stretch on this
line results in excellent hooks sets.
Yozuri Hybrid Fluorocarbon line 6# smoke color. Little line memory means less line tangles.
Shimano Compre 6'6" Medium Heavy Baitcasting Pole. An all around great pike rod.
Eagle portable depth finder. The best way to fish a new body of water is using a depth finder. Sure they weigh a bit but it will make your next fishing trip so much more productive.
I am sure I'll think of many many more fishing items and I'll post them as Christmas Day approaches.
Happy Holidays to everyone!!

The program will come into effect /09 and anyone wishing to hunt or fish in Ontario will be required to have an Outdoors Card. The card will cost $9.00 and be valid for 3 years. These new requirements are part of the implementation of a new licencing automation system that takes effect 2010. The requirement for an Outdoors Card will also enhance the ability to replace lost hunting and and hunters will only need to show their hunter accreditation once rather than each time purchasing a hunting licence. Once the paper application has been completed, the Outdoors Card will be mailed to the purchaser's home address. If you have any questions about the program, you can contact Burton McClelland, Manager of Licencing Improvement Project, Ministry of Natural Resources at . Or go to the website listed below.

West reported many nice sized pike, largest topping out at a beefy 43'". Blue and silver were the hot colors.
Tis' the season for year end projects. Dad and I spent the past week building a screened in porch for South lake.
Weather is starting to cool off as it usually does this time of year. The water temps are chillling and the weed beds are dying. Soon the lakes will turn and thus is the close of the fishing season. This is the last week for us at Big Hook. In closing, I would personally like to thank everyone for visiting us this summer. Myself, mom and dad look forward to seeing past, present and future guests in the seasons to come. Thanks again,
PS if you have any fish pics from your latest trip please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Now to throw a wrench in the gears of the fishing gods. Under overcast conditions walleye's will have the tendency to ascend to shallower waters. So when you see those dark skies forming, think somewhat shallower.
Pike have had unusual behavior the last week. Pike typically hang in 8' weed beds. However, this past week the weed beds have been unproductive, at least on Central Lake. Pike instead can be found on the 8-15+ ft reefs feeding on smaller walleyes. Windblown shores and deeper points are also quality spots.
Walleye- berkley gulp twisters (yellow, pumkingseed, white), 3/8 oz jigs, rapala shad rap RS blue and silver
Northern Pike-black bulldawg medium size (hands down the most productive last week), Johnson silver minnow 5/8 oz, orange bladed bucktail/black skirt
