Well it's finally time to announce the start of the 2018 MCI Conservation Lottery.
Learning from last year’s inaugural sales, we have enhanced the prize structure, and loosened the way tickets will be sold. Tickets will be available through Muskies Canada Inc. chapter representatives, Trade Shows such as the Spring Fishing & Boat Show and the Toronto Sportsmen Show, or via my PayPal or E-Transfer accounts. One of the rules of the lottery ONLY ONTARIO RESIDENTS OVER THE AGE OF 18 MAY PURCHASE A TICKET.
If you wish to purchase a ticket or more from me, send me a PM and I will reply with my contact information.

First prize is again a Mercury 15HP, EXLPT four stroke Pro Kicker motor. Valued at about $5500.00 retail taxes included.

Second prize donated by Dave Dutchak of Trojan Tackle is a set (port and starboard) of Boomerang rotational rod holders on risers, Salty S10's, retail value $1650.00 taxes included

Third prize is a Sony 48 inch screen smart TV.

All of the proceeds from this lottery will be directed to MCI research projects, educational grants and grants to two children’s camps located in Georgina Township.

Please help,

Thank you

General Discussion / Introduction
« Last post by Tom McCutcheon on November 23, 2017, 10:02:23 AM »
Good morning all.

Tom McCutcheon here. Born and raised, and worked in London until I retired in 2000. I fished for walleye, salmon and rainbow out of a 24' cuddy cabin for years, 1986 to 2001 until I sold that boat. I was going to purchase a larger 40' to 50' boat and charter on Lake Ontario after retirement until my wife told me different...
So we sold our house in London, moved to a year round place on Pigeon Lake and I have a smaller 18' Lund to keep me happy.
I mostly fish for Muskies, but when not looking for toothy fish, I will keep myself busy with bass, walleye, perch and panfish.
I am also very involved with Muskies Canada Inc., and have held several positions at the chapter level and national level.
I currently am the Director At Large for MCI and oversee the trade show bookings for them as well as manage our Conservation Lottery.
I would like to ask John for permission to post on the forum information regarding our next fundraising lottery.

Fishing Georgian Bay / Re: Last Day on the Bay - The wintering hole
« Last post by Fishpants on November 16, 2017, 09:26:11 AM »
Last Day on GBay, time to put it away.
The number of nice days on big water are few and far between before ice up. Every year I end the season on GBay, out in the bay, just me and a few thousand little brown friends.

James Gignac and I watched the weather for a nice day and the forecast was perfect! Sunny, no wind and 5c. We headed out of Penetang bright and early and head straight out to the bay. The intent was to catch a bunch of fish and do a lot of video work. The bottom of Simcoe is really pretty boring compared to the bay so I wanted to video some of the bottom and the huge schools of smallies we find find. But like many forecasts these days it was wrong!!!
We did manage to get into them pretty good but the video was horrible because we were bouncing around. Last year we caught a fish in over 100 ft. This year we wanted to see just how deep bass winter. We fell off a structure and drifted out to 111 ft. where baitfish hugged the bottom.James hooked up. I normally won't bring a fish that far to the surface but wanted to see what it was. Sure enough it was a bass. Not huge but still a 2.5 lb fish. Took a quick picture and watched the sonar to see if the fish could get back down. It took a while but it did get down a long way until we couldn't track it.

These GBay fish were not really squared up like Simcoe or Erie fish. Their bellies were bursting but no weight through the tail. The wind changed to the NE and the bite stopped. We had 2 cameras down watching these huge schools. Many of the fish we caught had what looked to be stretch marks. Red irritations on their bellies.
The video was not good but the clarity of the water even at 50 ft was incredible considering the dense cloud cover and bouncing the rig off the bottom. Didn't seem to bother the fish lol
