  1. The dredging was halted by the DEC due to the presence of the piping plover. An endangered species. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. Oswego on the Eastern shore Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  3. From the Sandy pond channel maintenance association: NY Marine Services have pulled all the buoys in the channel until a permanent solution can be found we will not be able to get a channel marked even if we dredge a full channel at the required 4’. We need people to share this information and to contact elected officials if this makes you angry or upset. SPCMA has always tried to maintain a channel by themselves and the help of the Town of Sandy Creek - At this time State and Federal funding is desperately needed!!! Future dredging could place sand on the North and South alternating … Dredge before April 1 st and in the Fall … get as much sand out of the channel and pond as we can. Place sand on private lands to the North and South. This ultimately will restore the barrier beach that protects the pond. We will be getting a form letter out for people to send. The 4 th of July is fast approaching and we need people to know there are no markers out there except for the rocks pile on the lakeside. Boat safely and have have a great weekend. Be careful using the inlet very shallow and now unmarked by buoys Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  9. Unless the cheater spoon is fixed it will continue to slide down your main line until it reaches the main line release. I pop my main out of the release and let it float up without reeling. Generally misses the free slide cheater. I have also had hits as main is rising in the water column Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  10. I hope not 12# pancake weights. They take on a life of their own in currents. I had a pair of 13# pancakes. Sat in my cellar for years finally sold them hope the new owner knows lots of swear words Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  11. More input. Lol. What weights are you running on your riggers. Wire dipseys? Do you tangle only on a single course or any course Speed ? Boat handling is a big factor in preventing tangles. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United

  22. Biggest problem I’ve found is people that back onto the ramp and THEN start getting boat ready to launch. Pull to the side , ready your vessel and THEN get in line to launch Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  23. Maybe that will be a learning experience on how to back a trailer. I’ve watched some really entertaining trailer backing. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
