My neighbour and fishing buddy Patty T. and I took one for the team yesterday, braving the summer heat to go fishing on the new Outdoor Canada fishing boat. Tough work, but someone had to do it. Our mission? Put the first bass in the spanking brand new Harbercraft. And so we headed to the weed- and reed-filled shallow south end of Cook's Bay on Lake Simcoe to find some largemouth. Mission accomplished: the OC boat is now officially christened.
