  1. I neglected to mention that the buoy is retreived for the winter and put back into service in the spring. It seems this year they are running a bit late as it has not yet been redeployed. Len
  2. Tight Lines: the most useful item for me is the NDBC buoy located 20 miles north of Rochester. It is station #45012. You can access the imformation on the internet or by phone # 1-888-701-8992. I usually call before I get my coffee made in the morning. If you call, just follow the instructions and you can access wave, wind,water temp data within the last 20 or so minutes. Even though I fish out of Sandy pond, the data is very accurate. This tool is "deadly" for knowing what the conditions are previous to arriving at the dock. It has thankfully sent me "back to bed" more than once. Give it a try Len
  3. Nick: I have been fishing Ontario for 25 years and had my boat registered in Pa for 20 years and it has spent most of the season docked in Sandy Pond. I never had any problem. Lately, since I bought a cottage, I have registered the boat in NY. The trailer is still registered in PA, but I very rarely use it. It is used just to store for the winter. The fact is, boat registration is less expensive in NY, but the trailer registration is less in PA. Go figure. Len
  4. Hey Mike: I am also from NE Pa., Wilkes Barre to be exact. I've been fishing Ontario since the mid 80's and I am addicted. I try to get to Sandy pond every weekend in spring/summer. There are many people from NE Pa (W-B, Scranton, Hazleton) fishing in this area. I fish out of Sandy Pond, which is just south of Henderson. My boat is a Sportcraft 230 fisherman called "Desperado". I am sure you will be wandering a few miles south in the spring. Try me on the radio. Len (LRG355)
  5. Dave: I can understand your anticipation of a good fishing trip when you return. My son just finished about 9 years in the Navy, most of which was aboard a forward deployed Carrier. He was very anxious to re-live some of his memories as a 12 year old in the late 80's pulling in massive salmon from the "power plant" to Sandy Pond. I fish out of Sandy Pond, which is just a few miles south of you. You are always welcome aboard my boat. I have a camp on Sandy Pond and could always use another person on board. Give me a shout when you return. Thank you for the sevrvice and STAY SAFE !!! LRG355 (DESPERADO - 23` SPORTCRAFT)
  6. Ray: Did they steal the Old Town you just bought from me???? Len
  7. 17 Foot OLD TOWN Canoe. Red fiberglass with wood interior accessories. Like new. 2 new paddles. Sandy Pond Area. $200. SOLD!!
  8. I've been fishing the Mexico Bay area for 25 years and have seen the good/bad cycles come and go. We are in a mediocre cycle as you do not see many boats around you with fish on. I fished very hard from 8/23 thru 8/30 and caught a slightly less than normal amount of fish for my vacation. I did fish hard and long for every one. Next year will be better- keep the faith. As I fish alone many times, I stick to the basic stuff with downriggers. Can't handle dipsies, copper, lead core, when I am alone. Basics and persistance eventially pay off. I hit em well on Sunday eve in about 76 ft of water off the high rocks. All came on spin doctors with atomic flies of the riggers. Alone, I sometimes get doubles and get them both in, that is lots of fun. Desperato: (23 ft Sportcraft-blue top and trim) out of Sandy Pond
  9. Years ago I towed my boat with a camper from PA every weekend. I found that I could park the whole rig at the Salmon Country Marina for a reasonable daily rate. For the next few years I drove up in the car, parked the car at the marina, took the boat to the state ramp at Mexico Bay and I was a "happy camper"
  10. We call 'em VAMPIRE FLIES. I know they just laugh at commercial repellants.
  11. Looking for area to store empty boat trailer for the season. Sandy Pond, Pulaski area. Farm field or similar would be sufficient. Just trying to get them out of the yard at the camp as grass cutting is painful enough when the fish are biting. Moving trailers constantly is even more painful
  12. I fish out of sandy pond but havent been out this year yet. My boat is still not in the water. Some things have kept me away from the camp this spring and now I have a mess there from the storm. When I finally do get back to fishing, I often go out alone since everyone seems to be working. The name of my boat is "Desperato" and is a 23 Sportcraft. If you would be interested in trying a trip from Sandy Pond, let me know. Len
  13. Origional owner purchased new. Used only on Lake Ontario. Very Good condition. 4.3 litre V6 OMC Cobra runs excellent. Very good on gas. 2 Cannon marlin mag 10 riggers, Si tex color, radio etc. Cover with side and rear curtains. Dual axle Cox trailer. Ready to fish. Is a "walk around cuddy" configuration. $4500. This boat has never let me down and loves to fish. Located at Sandy pond. SOLD
  14. I was in my camp on Chipman Lane (behind the Elms Golf course) when it came through. I thought I was on the "wizard of oz". My front yard is leveled. Huge poplars and oaks down everywhere. I am glad I didn't fish that morning. Some damage to the house. Currently, a large tree from a neighbors property blocks the access to the pond. Now, I am just waiting for the town of Sandy Creek to raise my tax assessment another 15% because things are wonderful on Sandy Pond and my property has been naturally landscaped!!
