Lightbulb Fishing Information on the Net - Links
The wealth of information available to any type of fisherman today is fantastic in comparison to pre-WWW days.

Sure, there are a lot of commercial sites with very little good knowledge to offer – but - this still leaves millions of other websites that may just have the tidbit of info we seek, or a how-to, or a really cool instructional video of an aspect of fishing – that all will not only entertain, but inform, while providing endless hours of training.

I thought I’d start this thread on OSF - to post a few links that I think will be of value to its members……… and to see if you fellas have a favourite website that is of high quality and worthwhile sharing with us guys.

Here’s my starter teaser list on “straight up” Ontario information sites:

RE: Fishing Information on the Net - Links
Great post OldTimer!

One of my favorite sites to visit is no-maps http://www.nomap.ca/(S(tbcmqyvoto4ye355o.../Home.aspx

This coupled with google earth is a good way to find lakes, remote logging roads etc.

Interesting page with Lake Ontario bathymetry. I don't know whether it's detailed enough to be useful, but topo maps of Lake ON are tough to obtain

LOL....I usually go into West marine and take a look at the specific area on the map I'm interested in....while "browsing" the map section.

RE: Fishing Information on the Net - Links
Tying Perch Rigs - this is very close to what I use... simple and quick...... I don't use beads or gold hooks, and most times I just tie it in as part of the main line.

RE: Fishing Information on the Net - Links
Looks like a regular drop shot, I only use one hook and do tie it to the main line, those hooks on the small leaders - I can just feel how quickly it will get tangled with the main line.
