  1. Very sad news. Mike was a great guy who always offered to help out. He will definitely missed.
  2. FYI Garmin has been shutdown temporarily by an encryption virus. They have been down for 3 days and they are being told they have to pay ten million for there data to be unencrypted. That means no support, data uploads from gps and watches,ect. It’s ugly and pilots are having issues with flight plans, runners data is unavailable and possibly lost. But more scary is encryption viruses often are used to hide evidence of data intrusion and theft. Can’t wait to get full story.

    Would be a great boat for you Brian but I am not sure that boat does not deserve the copious amounts of Laker slime and poop that it would be subjected to. Its way to nice for that.
  4. Yeah, I heard they went through, not happy but would have rolled with it from a pen project but it's a slap in the face to take the kings away and expect us to put the effort in to the steelhead. I completely agree with mothballing the pens. Our private pens get put away and come back out when the kings comeback, they should not be "repurposed" . It is what little leverage we will ever have at getting a pen project for Kings back.
  5. I am not doing Steelhead pens, especially if the new regs go in. Kill pens for kings and ask me to raise fish you don't want me to catch. Uh hell no!
  6. This soap opera occurred a couple of years ago too. It really turned me off to purchasing his products then and this years season of the soap opera is reinforcing my decision. He comes across as paranoid and highly unprofessional.
  7. I was contemplating trying to create one about a year ago that was Lake Ontario centric but honestly I wasn't sure I would have the time to put in to it. My original plan was to try to do interviews with Charter Captains, Local lure manufactures, Marina and mechanic interviews/ Q&A with possible reports , news, ect.
  8. Call it vindictive or call it fair play closing the Salmon River to protect the salmon spawn has merit. Realize to Lake fisherman fisherman, every salmon is becoming very important after the additive cuts the last few years. So just as the trib guys want the numbers of steelies in the creeks to be as high as possible for there fishing opportunities the lake guys want the same for the kings. SoThey use the mindset that steelhead is managed for trib fishing and they say that the kings are managed for the lakes. So they have not told lake guys we can’t fish or catch steelhead but they will change and shape the regulations to reduce and limit the steelhead catch on the lake. The lake guys are not saying trib guys can’t fish for kings just maybe there should not be fishing for them on the salmon river, other streams would be open for business. The only major trib in NY state where it’s proven natural reproduction occurs is the Salmon River,(yes there are a few other small tribs that do some natural reproduction but it only on ideal years and statically not worth mentioning.) On top of that, when these 20 percent cuts occur it’s not 20 percent for every port that gets stocked. It’s less than that on the salmon and more at other sites to offset the salmon getting less of the cuts. Why? Because the DEC gets concerned if they cut to much from the Salmon river they may come up short of salmon take for hatchery needs. Sounds like the DEC is saying the Salmon River needs special attention. So why not protect that brood stock on the salmon river. If we are going to designate which fish is managed for where then let’s come up with sound plans on both sides, not just one side.
  9. I don’t get it. The big stream guys bust everybody's chops about spot burning but when it’s one of there own no comment. I get protecting the smaller less widely known streams but shouting out about a run in the Genny or be it the Niagara or Salmon River is crazy. Even the newest fisherman to the state can easy find those are given stream for a run. There seems to be a small elitist group of stream fisherman who want to write the rules and pretend they represent all people who fish a creek, stream or river. I met some great, helpful and teaching guys on the river and streams in the nineties. When I got back into Lake fishing again after some time off I had a lot of terrible interactions with stream guys who thought they had the only proper way to fish the tribs and they were the keeper of the tribs for everyone. I don’t what know happened to those good helpful stream guys in the years I didn’t fish but it wasn’t good. It’s everyone’s resource, fish your way and let other fish there’s as long as it’s legal.
  10. This seems a lot more like trib spot burning than telling people the Genny gets a run.
  11. I found this link on WeatherUndergound that still seems to show wave info: http://weathersnoop.wunderground.com/MAR/LO/043.html . Not sure how long this may work as my other links show what everyone else has but this one works for now and was happy to stumble upon it.
  12. Wonder if people were just moving that plastic gate to use the launch and this is the solution to that.
  13. I would think acting like this any using profanity and calling successful Charter Captains in the "fraternity", old and washed up will not endear you to the network you so want to be part of and hope to help you. I can tell you Scott is well respected despite the barbs jokingly throw around here. I know for a fact you just destroyed some bridges with other captains out that there that just read these posts. Nothing wrong with being young and having motivation but disrespecting those established in the business is just the wrong path to go.
  14. This is Sandy Creek in Hamlin, NY. Way west of where you are talking about.
  15. I have read some good things about this Biore and Neutrogena stuff. If it really doesn’t feel greasy or not noticeable after a few minutes it would be worth the extra cost. https://theinventory.com/this-japanese-sunscreen-is-the-first-skincare-thing-ive-1828370379
