  1. This can be a long answer but lets see if I can simplify it. A "Flip" that you are asking about is when the lake has been stable with a thermocline and then we get a Hard south wind. That rushes the cold water in and replaces the warm top with the cold. We call this "ice out" or a flip. What you are describing at least to me and the way I have learned it is the west wind simply fills the bay with warm water and you need to get offshore to find the correction. In some cases typically later in August the fish wont leave once they are "Staging" they just get finicky and wont bite much. The Bay is a different animal when it comes to Warm water. West wind probably effects the bay more then any other place on the lake. You need an East or a South wind to make the correction to the bay and bring the cold water back in. The trick in the bay is to run deep and keep stopping and checking with your probe until you find the temp you are looking for unless you are marking them. In that case the temp wont matter if they are hungry. I hope this helps.
  2. This comment right here shows you know zero about Construction and Grants..... The Mayor and the City are Misguided as it gets.
  3. Get 12 clips to Dave I will leave him the cash in case we don't cross paths. Thanks Greg.
  4. Thanks for agreeing with me. Good luck on the water.
  5. No arm chair here. I run major construction for a living when I am not fishing... Build schedules for projects ten times the size of Wrights Landing that allows municipalities to continue income and complete there projects on time and under budget. If my projects looked or ran anything like this one I would have been out of a job a long time ago.
  6. This is called Kool Aid! I would encourage you to FOIA the city of Oswego for the plans for the Marina.... See if you think you'll be able to turn a 25ft boat trailer around in the parking lot when they are done... Again there are many things happening down there that they aren't talking about. I really wish I could say more.... Keep in mind they fired the original MARINA engineer and decided they could design it better themselves.....
  7. Not a HOBBIE for quite a few who are affected on an already tough year... The mayor is clueless and short sided. The end result is not an improvement it is lipstick on a pig... There will not be new docks but they are going to spend a MILLION dollars on a fountain... I hope you enjoy the fountain... There are a few other major items but I have already said to much... Anyone want to ask the city why they fired the original design engineering company and decided they could do it better themselves?? Anyone? How about returning deposits to all the dockers who paid thinking they were going to have a dock this year??
  8. Nothing to turn on with an echip. What presentation are you trying behind the chip? Meat? Flies? A little more detail and we can probably get you started in the right direction. The Pro Trolls are a great attractor.
  9. When this project is all over people are not going to believe what they see... I cant go in to details because of my source but say good by to most of the parking. Oswego could care less about the fishing public. They don't have a clue the about revenue generated by the fishery nor do they care.
  10. Post a pic of the other Lake trout you caught. Would be interesting to note the differences.
  11. Moss is fairly bothersome in the BT water off Oswego. Mostly in the river current however. Some cottonwood as well as other posters have mentioned.
  12. That is a Lake Trout.
  13. No fleas yet. No way the marina opens. It looks like a bomb went off over there. Painfully obvious the city is running the project and not an experienced construction outfit. If you saw the fill they are bringing in to raise the parking lots it would make your head spin.... I also wonder what engineer signed off on the current sheet pile wall handling the extra wall load the increase in the parking lot is going to give it... I will leave that to everyone's imagination...
  14. This rig would be right at home in the Creek....
  15. This boat is in Great shape! Pete nailed the care of this vessel. Its a must see! You wont be disappointed. Good Luck with sale Mark!
