  1. Grass is always greener on the other side of the fence
  2. Too much easterly wind. Rough water. Lake flipping too much. Unstable conditions. Different fishing every couple days. we need a prelonged period of westerlies to stabilize the water and better catches
  3. Man thinks he is in control but forgets mother nature bats last
  4. So was the Oak and Olcott. At the black north ramp (state ramp was not built yet) vehicles with boats were back up waiting to launch all the way back into the exit ramp on the parkway. at olcott the vehicles were back up on Jackson st onto rt 18 and onto the bridge over 18 mile cr
  5. Lake Ontario water levels usually peak around Memorial Day then drops. Look at JD post chart. Aug and Sept water levels are lower than levels this time of year. LO trib water volumes have little effect on lake levels. LO water levels are primarily controlled by the locks on the St Lawrence. After the last few years super high water you have no chance to slow the water releases, Bottom line late summer will be worse
  6. DEC has been trying for decades with Federal $ and fish to get these reestablished in LO along with lakers. Returns have been very skimpy to say the least. it is thought that most run out to the Atlantic Ocean and never return. My feelings are save the money and add numbers to pacific salmonids and BT
  7. Just talked to R8 Fish Manager. They clarified original closures of business' at boat launches. Since DEC sites don't charge for use on their launches they originally said they would stay open. Today they changed their minds and said they are closed. As for Sandy Creek as soon as the Town of Hamlin can lock the gate it will be closed
  8. I been looking at the fishing reports. It has a lot of pictures of kids holding fish. They all have big smiles. With schools closed and sports and other entertainment stuff closed lets hope there is more family bonding. We need it. Icing on the cake would be that with more free time on our hands that it gives us time or more time to read. A good starter would be the Holy Bible.
  9. yes but two months less of high nutrient food. they will be smaller and survival will be less.
  10. Vortex 3-9x40. several models available depending on what you want to pay. Super bright. unconditional guarantee. Use to be nothing but Leuopold. Not now
  11. Do you tie your braid directly to the diver or use a swivel?
