  1. Yes the flooding will bring more nutrients to the lake. Adding nutrients increase the bottom of he food chain and is carried up to the top predator. However I don't think the volume of nutrients in this event will add much to the large volume of Lake Ontario. Also zeebs will feed on this nutrient increase
  2. Still praying for you all along. God bless you
  3. I investigated fishkills for DEC for many years. It doesn't seem that an updwelling would be possible this time of year. The deep water temp should be 39 degrees, At this temp water is the most dense. Surface temps are very close to 39. Fish die when they experience a large change in water temp as in summer. Resulting in a drastic change in their metabolism. Also all fish species in that effected area are killed, not just one. One species usually indicates a natural mortality like a disease.
  4. lots of good advice above. Decades ago I started stream guiding and it didn't last to long. The reason I quit could apply to chartering too. I didn't want to make my hobby my job.
  5. C&R? my granpappy always told me they have a better chance in the water than they do in the cooler
  6. Been praying for him right along. I'll be there
  7. Everyone in the boat during April must be wearing an approved PFD.
  8. better a cloud than a sunami
  9. Some do. Some don't
  10. ballistic wise the 7mm08 is very close to the 270 win. recoil for both is light. ammo availability is much more availale for the 270 as is selection of different brands/weight. Pa has always had rifle season and the 270 is by far the most popular. 270 in 130 grain bullet is the whitetail cartridge. Jack O'Connor would agree
  11. Hey DexWhat What a game. Are your feet back on the ground. Hopes some of their mojo rubs off on the Bruins
  12. Calfornia Highway patrol
  13. First Tebow then Payton. I heard a rumor that Big Ben wants to change the number on his jersey.
  14. When I originally reviewed the plans when working for DEC Fisheries the existing ramp was to be replaced with 2 ramps. One on the west side up near turning point with parking for 12 cars/trailers. Another was to be built on the east side on the old footprint of Stutson Street bridge and again just a few parking places. Neither are built. Rochester the biggest city on the US side of Lake Ontario and facilities for boaters least to be desired. Last winter boaters could have got out all winter. Not only contact the mayor but also The Monroe County Fishing Advisory Board. I don't have a number for them but you can get it from DEC Regional Fish Manager Web Pearsall at 226 2466
  15. Beautiful!! There's only 2 fish that can better that one. A bigger steelie or a State record King. But I may be bias
