I know it’s early, and it’s a cold September morning. But that shouldn’t keep you in doors. Pack up the kids and head down to Ontario Place right now for Dave Mercer’s Facts of Fishing Kids Day! There are tons of prizes to be won not to mention fish to be caught. Let’s go!
I just watched this video Dave Mercer uploaded two days ago of him smashing smallmouth bass on Lake Erie and it really reminded me that I haven’t done any bass fishing this year.
Man do I miss those massive hooksets. Though, as you probably already know I’ve been spending many of my weekends in Algonquin Park, catching trout- a species I’ve never targeted in the past. I’ve even successfully taught myself and friends how to troll for trout in a canoe.

If you haven’t had your ears tuned to Facts Of Fishing, or you haven’t been eating at Subway, you might not know that starting on July 4th (at participating location in Ontario) the Hook, Line and Subway contest is back on! This means you’ve got another chance to win great prices like Shimano rods and reels, mustang inflatable life jackets, BOATsmart! safeboating prize packs, and of course the ultimate prize… Dave Mercer’s Skeeter FX20 bass boat equipped with a loin shaking 250HP Yamaha VMAX SHO! Not only that it’s the actual boat the dave used every week on his TV show, and last year he even took the guy who won it fishing!
Even just being able to fish with Dave Mercer is a prize I’d love to win, but to be able to drive away with his boat after is dream come true!
The contest ends on August 14th and full contest details can be found on Dave’s website.
I took a few short videos of Dave Mercer’s seminar at Bass Pro Shops yesterday, and I would have taken more if I had a tripod, but I wonder if that would have been a little too much. Anyway here are two great clips from the seminar. Both videos are available in high definition 1080 thanks to my Canon 7D.
