    Cayuga New FLTA box record

    I am super impressed! I fished in the FLTA for a dozen years or so and only saw box totals of 35+ lbs. once or twice ( And they weren't mine) LOL.

    Skaneateles Skan 7-26-18

    I made the mistake of using the state launch on a weekend. When I arrived there I was told by a clueless cop to park my boat trailer in one spot and my truck in another. Really? The lake itself is pretty and the fishing was OK. Leaving was another story. Each boat had to take their turn blocking the ramp while they hooked their rigs up. I was stuck in a line (on the water) of boats that took a long time hooking up their rigs and pulling their boats out. (Some of the weekend warriors could use a little practice)! It took an honest 90 minutes to get off the water! I have never been back.

    Lampery

    Those fun loving DEC boys were able to successfully feed the Catherine Creek lampreys their "vitamins" the last couple of days despite the rainy weather. Work continues tomorrow on Keuka outlet......
  4. Fish was caught on a 4 inch, pearl colored Trigger X Walleye Swimbait. https://youtu.be/tZsKcsRDq8U

    Lake Sturgeon Restoration

    There are several videos of Lake Sturgeon spawning in Fall Creek ( Cayuga trib) available on U Tube. Active spawning activity was observed by DEC fisheries biologist there last year. I would post the link here but I can't seem to make it work.
  6. Saw this in the news. 18.2 pounds, 32 inches long, 21 inch girth. Caught on 5/5/2018 by Brian Hartman. A Saint Lawrence river fish. Weight is from certified scales.

    Seneca dead fish

    My bad. Checked a couple other sources- incinerator project is not dead. Looks like a nasty legal fight is ahead

    Seneca dead fish

    Lawyers representing the incinerator project withdrew their application today due to local opposition. The project appears DEAD.

    Seneca dead fish

    Bad press might be bad for business, but keeping silent will not help.....nor will it improve the fishing. Public pressure can change things. We have a lot of people that don't fish that have a vested interest in clean water/ healthy fishery. I've contacted Jeff Murray from the Star Gazette and he has promised to reach out to Nick soon, and Brad after he returns from holiday break.

    Seneca dead fish

    Both the sewage treatment plants in Montour Falls and Watkins Glen are obsolete. Plans are in the works to replace them. No telling what chemicals are flowing through them to the lake. Stupid idea to use our lakes as liquid "landfills".
  11. Draft NYSDEC Lake Sturgeon Recovery Plan DEC is inviting public comment on their draft lake sturgeon plan. Plan is at http://dec.ny.gov/outdoor/111557.html

    Big Black Bear

    I try to make it to one of the PA Game Commission "bear check" stations each year. The public is allowed to watch the biologists weigh, determine if it's male or female , pull a tooth for aging as well as any other data they might be collecting on the harvested bears. Check in is mandatory for all successful hunters and most of the resulting data is recorded on a whiteboard for public viewing. I've seen bears as small as 26lbs. and as large as 642lbs. (dressed) weighed in. Average adult female would be 100-150lbs and average adult male 200-300lbs. However, they have recorded bears with live weights exceeding 800lbs. The assembled crowd tries to guess the weigh of each bear (myself included). Most people aren't even close when guessing the bears weight. I've been visiting the stations for years and not any good at guessing either!
  13. Those fish were the result of a multi year stocking effort which has since been discontinued.
  14. The fish stocked in Otisco from 2009 to 2013 were treated with an antibiotic, oxytetracycline (OTC). This shows up in lab tests, so DEC can tell if an 'eye is from those years. DEC used gill netting in both Owasco and Skaneateles to get their fishery samples.
  15. For what it's worth, the statement that there is only one biologist for Region 7 is just plain wrong. Last I knew, Region 7 had 3 assigned to the Eastern Finger Lakes alone!
