  1. I think there’s some people out there that don’t like the hatchery fish and feel that they are bad for the system. They think natives are superior and want stocking to stop. I wonder if that’s was his reason.
  2. We used to catch them bass fishing in the Niagara River. You’d think you hooked a massive fish and end up being an eel. I don’t think I caught one after maybe 2005? When we were younger we’d catch a few a year.
  3. Does anyone know what causes a fish to spawn at 2, 3, or 4 years old? Is it conditions, genetics, other variables? Also I was looking at an article from the west coast and it was discussing change in diet and reduction in salmon size. The predominant food is now sardines where it was once more varied. Also mentioned that they used to consume eels. I never knew that. I wonder if LO salmon ever ate eels? In the 90s we had eels all over. I can’t remember the last time I caught one. Not saying it’s just eels. I wonder if there are other foods too that they once ate that are now less abundant?
  4. You think any will pay a fine more than $250? I feel bad for the DEC officers. They go into these situations which could be dangerous and then what’s the outcome?
  5. I had one on my house. Waited till dark, held the wasp spray in the hole, emptied the entire can. Not one flew out. I can’t remember the last time I sweat that much.
  6. Disconnect the rubber house from the engine block and start it.
  7. I think I read they were starting on Thursday.
  8. https://portal.nyserda.ny.gov/CORE_Solicitation_Detail_Page?SolicitationId=a0r8z000000AdArAAK&_gl=1*17cnnak*_ga*MjA2MDg0OTQ4OC4xNjcyNTA0MjUy*_ga_DRYJB34TXH*MTY3MjUyNjYxMC4zLjAuMTY3MjUyNjYxMC4wLjAuMA.. The title alone on this one is very interesting!
  9. Just looking around and found this https://portal.nyserda.ny.gov/CORE_Solicitation_Detail_Page?SolicitationId=a0r8z0000009q5SAAQ&_gl=1*ndwly0*_ga*MjA2MDg0OTQ4OC4xNjcyNTA0MjUy*_ga_DRYJB34TXH*MTY3MjUyNjYxMC4zLjAuMTY3MjUyNjYxMC4wLjAuMA.. I’m not sure it’s dead yet.
  10. I wonder what has a bigger impact. A warmer early winter? Early thaw? Or if it’s just total duration of warmer temps?
  11. Congrats and thank you for your service!
  12. I’ve never done this but I’m going to try it this year, put the trailer up on Jack stands and cover the posts in two sided tape or glue traps! My fear is they might just climb over their stuck friends.
  13. https://ijc.org/en/loslrb/international-lake-ontario-st-lawrence-river-board-plans-assist-boat-haul-out-lake-st-0 I just saw this, no impact on the rest of the lake
  14. Are you keeping the boat on that lake or primarily fishing someplace else?
  15. Leaving the unit on and driving it on the trailer? I know where we launch, we load the boat on and then drive 1/4 mile to unload everything and secure the boat. Numerous times I left electronics on for that ride. It would probably be right around those speeds too.
  16. I just saw this and know that a few guys have been looking. I know nothing about it. https://buffalo.craigslist.org/boa/d/alden-boat-fisherman-starcraft/7507854309.html
  17. If you lift the out drive up you should be able to see if it is properly aligned might need a mirror.
  18. Did you put it in forward to remove it?
  19. Ball ache.com Who will be brave enough to click that???
  20. I drive past a bean field daily on the way to work. Over the last ten years I would see deer almost daily during the fall. Let’s say three days a week. This year I only saw a dozen deer in the field all year. Oddly, I saw more deer in my backyard this year then I have since we moved in. Lots of oak and hickory behind the house.
  21. Did you get the rods and reels already? I have 2 wire roller rods and two rigger rods that I might be selling soon
