  11. The “hockey stick†has been broken, the “modified/substituted data†(read, the “outliers†tossed because they don’t fit the “modelâ€) has been fully exposed/documented, the “peer†agreement (let’s exchange emails to coordinate our results… crap, we got caught) exposed… OK, we’ll switch our tactics and thrown in “consensus†and “deniers†as our new mantra. "It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it." Thanks so much for making my point. Let’s see, the UN (read UN IPCC) and all “academia†experts do their work for free… no, wait, I stand corrected. Their salary comes from government grants and direct funding (assessments to member nations ring a bell). No crisis, no funding. “Raising doubt in people's minds is the goal of some politicians motivated and supported by corporate greed.†Perfect… a man pulls back his robe for all to see. No political thought/motive in the global warming, ooops, climate change “movement†is there…? If I were to make a choice between the effects of, say, clouds and man… I’ll go with clouds. Let me know when the first global cloud “modelâ€, predictor is available. But, I’d rather have the summer Chinook model 1st (and far more achievable)
  12. Ooooops http://www.climatedepot.com/2014/08/27/geologist-rebuts-media-hyped-draft-of-new-un-ipcc-report-as-nonsense-totally-contrary-to-real-evidence/
  13. Hey John Could you have the "climate change experts", "climate change modelers" work on a model to tell us where the chinooks will be next summer, ? Seems as though it would be a simple task for anyone who can develop a predictive model for the earths climate... BTW, here's some informative reading: http://www.climatedepot.com/2014/08/27/geologist-rebuts-media-hyped-draft-of-new-un-ipcc-report-as-nonsense-totally-contrary-to-real-evidence/ . And, if you're open to a divergence of thought, then here's some of the "other side" of the debate: http://wattsupwiththat.com/
  14. Attended last eve’s presentation: most notable info from memory (stayed for Hemlock and Canadice only) Hemlock Lake: Lake trout population is down from the 80s numbers, and is sourced almost exclusively by stocking. Growth rate is the highest across the Finger Lakes <= avg ~4lbs for a 22†trout. There is a very abundant forage base available, including a good smelt population. The DEC has great interest in returning the rainbow fishery to prior levels. Spring and August sampling of Springwater and Limekiln Creeks show strong yearling/juvenile populations. Predation is believed to be the limiting factor for Rainbow recruitment. Brown trout and walleye stocking has been suspended to evaluate their affect on the rainbow recruitment. Stocking of Finger Lakes strain rainbows may be considered in the future to supplement natural recruitment. Landlock stocking has been terminated due to virtually zero results. Canadice Lake: Lake trout population is excellent… approx twice the level of Hemlock. Growth rate is about avg for the FLs… ~3lbs for a 22†laker. Unlike Hemlock, the LT fishery is 96+ % derived from natural reproduction. Consideration is being given to eliminating future LT stocking. Brown trout stocking to be continued. Both lakes: multiple requests during the presentation were made for additional Diary cooperators. The diary information is an invaluable component for managing these lakes (all the FLs). Someone else may remember more, or was smart enough to take notes!!
  15. " A boating advisory is in effect on both Canandaigua and Honeoye Lakes in Ontario County until further notice. Due to the heavy rains, the level of both lakes is very high. " : http://www.whec.com/news/stories/S3438084.shtml?cat=565
  16. NOTE: that's a change. It was originally scheduled for May 20: http://www.lakeontariounited.com/fishing-hunting/topic/41669-dec-announces-state-of-the-western-finger-lakes-fisheries-meetings/ Update your calendars
  17. Walleye... 1st Saturday in May through March 15
  18. Ahhh... perfect! " The Veterans Annual Rainbow Trout Derby " WHEN Tuesday April 1 to Saturday, April 5. 5 days to yank and crank for $$$s... so sad!!
  19. One is too many... and yes there is a 2nd this year: Veterans Annual Rainbow Trout Derby.
  20. Additional significant variable... transducer cone angle. Narrow cone = greater depth display accuracy/image detail. Wide angle = less depth accuracy, less detail, BUT more image content (water covered). Example: with narrow cone, peak of hook depth is ~accurate, while with a wide transducer cone angle, the peak of the hook may in fact be that of a target in the outer reach of the cone, displaying it deeper then the actual depth. Interpretation of display info is a multi-variable challenge
  21. Effective rig fishing with a “jug†requires a specific technique to best fish the attached rig. Straight line trolling is the least effective. Repetitive wide “S†turns, or even better yet, 45 or 90 degree turns are a better technique. The jug becomes the pivot point => “inside†turns allow the jug to slow/stall, causing the rig to sweep lower through the temp/fish zones as the lure speed slows. “outside†turns allow the jug to increase speed, causing the rig to sweep upward through the temp/fish zones as lure speed increases. The sweep and speed changes make the best use of the jug rig. Just another presentation technique.
  22. Experimented with an umbrella rig on Seneca ~30 years ago... limited results using straight wire and downriggers (a couple 6-7 lb LT). Could have been a NQO problem though
