We are thinking of going fishing in Bay of Quinte and would like maps of the area. Can you tell me where I could get them. Topographical would be great.

Posted on April 15th, 2021

Topographic is a land-based map (like Google maps). I think you mean a Hydrographic Chart (shows underwater details). You can get a Bay of Quinte chart by going to: https://www.trakmaps.com/en/products/printed/details/bay-of-quinte-trenton-kingston-278/

Hello could you please let me know where i can purchase the mat squares that you use on your G3 boat. Also what do you use to tie them together. Thank you

Posted on April 3rd, 2021

Those mats are available from https://vigurus.com/ . I used the smallest nylon pull ties that come in different colors to gently snug-up the mats and then I trim the nylon tags and turn them towards the mat so they don’t stick up. The mats work very well…God bless you.

Good morning italo hope your doing well, i fish mainly rivers wanted to ask your advice on lead jighead or painted when can we get away with what, do you think eyes make a difference?and when to go weedless or weighted,do you have a general rule on hook size for plastics ex 2/0 hook for 3 inch .. how about 5 inch swimbait or longer worms? Like always thks for your time stay safe and take care

Posted on March 8th, 2021

I’m doing well, thanks. For all-round jigging an unpainted jighead works fine. Sometimes in clear water I use either a black, pink or a white jighead to match the color of the soft-plastic/bait I am using. If I’m using a painted jighead I think eyes help for predator fish to zoom-in on the jighead. When I fish turbid waters I will go to a yellow or chartreuse jighead. I rig weedless when I’m fishing cover and weeds and regular (non-weedless) if I’m fishing open water. If I’m using a jig with a 3-4″ soft-plastic I use a standard jighead equipped with a #2 jig hook. If I’m using a 5″ soft-plastic I usually use a# 1/0. For longer plastic worms I will use up to a #6/0 hook depending on the conditions (large for flipping or smaller for casting/retrieving)…God bless you.

Hi Italy,I have enjoyed your show for years.I was hoping to purchase the “Italy’s minnow “ and am wondering if is available at any Canadian retailers?Thanks

Posted on March 4th, 2021

Right now the “Italo’s Minnow and jigheads” are only available from Fishing Compete in Michigan, USA. You can order them online from them. They are trying to find a distributor to get them into Ontario stores…God bless you.

Hi Italo I live in my 84 year old neighbour and friend passed away two years ago and willed me his fishing gear. He left me a number older lures that are many years old. I was wondering if you knew of someone or someplace I could get them appraised. I don’t want to sell them but would like to know their value. Thank you for your time.

Posted on March 2nd, 2021

Hi Bob, the only person that may be able to help you is Andy Clements who lives in Peterborough, ON, Canada and has been an antique lure collector for several decades. I only have his Facebook info.  Fish with a Passion. God bless you, Italo

hi italo,do you know a good Canadian source for lunker city plastics? fin-s fish are fairly easy to come by, but I’ve been wanting to try the swimfish and shaker. the shipping charges from the US are outrageous though. alternatively, do you have a favourite paddletail that is easier to find in Canada? Thank you

Posted on February 27th, 2021

Hi Brad, I don’t know if any Ontario retailers that sell the different Lunker City baits, only the Fin-S Fish. All of my paddle tails come from the US. Fish with a Passion, God bless you, Italo

Hi Italo, I have a Ranger 21′ boat and need to have fibreglass restoration work completed. I am in Prince Edward County, ON Do you have any recommendations?Much appreciated!Kevin

Posted on February 27th, 2021

Hi Kevin,

Unfortunately I don’t have any contacts that do fiberglass repairs. You may want to contact a boat-works company in southern Ontario…God bless you.
