Hi Italo, how are you? What are your thoughts on RED colored fishing line specifically? thank you!

Posted on July 22nd, 2022

Hi Dako, colored lines are nice to look at and some of the brighter colors more visible to see above the water especially in overcast conditions. No matter what colored line I use I try and tie a fluorocarbon leader for at least the last 14″ so that fish don’t see the colored line in clear water. Red is visible underwater as the other colored lines (orange, white, yellow, etc.). If you’re fishing for fish that don’t have good eyesight or you fish in murky water the color of your line does not matter….God bless you.

Why call your show Canadian Sportsfishing when you seem to only fish in Ontario , and you don’t bother to come to western Canada to fish, just asking

Hi ItaloWhere can I purchase the clear spawn container you are using for your eggs?Can’t find Rapalas Jean Waders.Thank you

Posted on May 8th, 2022

Hi Manfred, sorry to hear you cannot find the waders. Maybe they don’t make them any more. The clear plastic containers I get when I buy certain electric tape (that’s the container they come in), also, and also soft-spikes for golf shoes. I found that plastic cigar tubes also work. Each tube holds about one dozen, dime-size egg-sacks.

hi italo,I was watching for all your steelhead posts this spring, and realized I know the creek and spot you were fishing in. I’ve never been sure about how to access that area, and was afraid that I would be trespassing if I tried. Does that section of the creek run through private property?

Posted on April 18th, 2022

Hi Brad, I fish several different Steelhead tributaries. Some public stretches and other private stretches where I have permission to access. Make sure you check with any stretches that are private and ask the landowner for permission before fishing those areas…God bless you.

Hi Italo,Hope everyone is well and enjoying tight lines. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for shore fishing spots near Bradford ontario, any tips would be greatly appreciated.Thank you,Russ

Posted on April 17th, 2022

Hi Russ, the Holland River is an excellent area to fish for Crappie right now. I have done a TV show right at the Younge St. bridge years ago. That’s probably the closest spot to you that I can think of, God bless you, Italo.

Italo, we would like for you to come up to the Yukonmy boyfriend retired and he loves your show, he loves fishing and we can’t wait for the lakes to be ready sometime around his birthday in May every year he put the boat in the water at that time hahahah then we travel lots Atlin Lake, Teslin Lake, Kluane Lake but our favorite and we catch lots is Aishihik Lake because we travel down the Lake park and you can catch from shore I want you to come up here and go fishing with us.Luna (Lolo )

Posted on April 8th, 2022

Hi Lorena, Thank you for your invite but unfortunately the Yukon is far from where we are in Ontario. I have had the privilege of fishing at Kluane Wilderness Lodge on Wellesley Lake and I have also fished a few other rivers there. The fishing and scenery was amazing. Wishing you and your boyfriend a wonderful fishing season…God bless you.

Hi Italo, seems like orange and chartreuse are two effective colors for walleye lure and plastic twisters. What do you think about these two colors and walleye fishing?

Posted on April 6th, 2022

Hi Dako, yes orange and chartreuse work well especially in clear water to attract Walleye. I also like to use black, white and pink twister-tail grubs and they also work well throughout the day and at different depths and water color.

Hi Italo. To what length do you cut the legs so that they fit properly on the rear of the Rod Runner.?

Posted on April 5th, 2022

Hi Keith, I can’t give you a specific measurement. I suggest you line up the legs and with your eye judge the angle you desire so the Rod Runner is stable. From memory I think I cut off about 3-4 down of the sections…God bless you.
