    fishing out of my lund, huntin, travel
  1. not necessarily, i have a fairly large tract of property and it really hasnt been an issue! seems like every year i get some property border incroachment early on but i tend to make an example out of the person if i catch them. trail cams are a wonderful tool, it is easier to pattern a hunter than it is a deer in some cases. i am on a first name basis with the local encon officers as well as the state police, they will happily show up any time i call with a potential complaint. i used to leave for warmer temps prior to the end of firearms season.... no more of that! i have to much time and money managing my farm for me than to have some a$%bag drop the hammer on a deer i have passed on all bow season. i am most likely that land owner everyone hates here, the one with the property that harbors "all the deer" once the shooting begins. but again....i pay the taxes and the mortgage! Dave
  2. its really quite simple, catch them and have their a%^es arrested! works wonders and it wont be long before the word gets out. took me one time to catch a scum bag on my farm, now the words out! so what if they don't like me... i pay the taxes! Dave
  3. hopefully the new group will run this event better! there are tons of horror stories surrounding the past $1000.00 a day derby from non-payments to a large amount of cheating both confirmed and uncomfirmed! tighter rules and strong enforcement will pay dividends! unfortunatley the word cheat comes up way to often in these events and unfortunately there are tons of ways to cheat the system and not enough ways to prevent it due to it being lake wide! being retired i enjoyed fishing the old $1000.00 a day derby until the facts as well as rumors started to fly about the negative issues that were taking place. i am routing for this event to make it and these organizers dont fall prey to what occured a few years back or its days will be numbered as well. Dave
  4. john that sucks.... the real cost of your process probably doesnt exceed $250.00, the rest are fees going to the documentation company. Dave
  5. a $600.00 redocumentation fee is a bit excessive! i would look into that. that fee should be no more than $500.00. i believe you have 40 days to register the vessel before you will be subject to interest and penalties, the problem is that depending on how busy the NDC is you may not get your documentation for a cpl months. you WILL need this paperwork to show ownership, generally the "clerks" at the DMV will let you slide with the issue date on you documentation. Dave
  6. any updates relating to this topic? was hoping that a decision would be made prior to heading south for the winter. your commitment to this overdue discussion/desision is greatly appreciated and your support remains strong! Dave
  7. super job!!!! did you sand it or use stripper? if you used stripper what type/brand? Dave
  8. www.niagarafishingguides.com.... joe and chris cinelli. top notch service tons of experience. always a great time. Dave
  9. why havent they considered looking into what is going on in michigan? PRIVATE ENTITIES running the tournaments! this is being done with great success. take some time and take a peek at ALL the tournamnets that are being held in michigan on an almost weekly basis! yes private entities will make money off of the events, thats their business, hence the more enteries, sponsors and dollars they generate means a bit more $$$$$ for their pockets. private entities also have in - roads with current and perspective sponsors, media and so fourth. you can have all the volunteers in the world but without meaningful contacts willing to part with money to support events like the pro/am it will remain the same event year after year. you can change rules back to "the old way" that were changed to the "old way" years ago, you can add an open event yada yada yada.... its still the same stale event imho. this is by no means to bash the commite members ( iguess certian ones it is) as i have been subtly accused of doing in the past but enough is enough. there is another thread here taking a poll on open communication for oswego hmmmm??? wonder what will happen in niagara?? good job oswego, but i can hear it now...we cant do it in oswego because we need to remain consistent. similiar to the starting time rule changes that took place way back when in oswego. let see some hands.... how many teams are satisfied with product (suggested retail i must add) being included in the "cash" payout? well here i go again bashing....... ... i can only take so much of this dog chasing its tail mentality. until next time. Dave (the nameless dolt)
  10. if i am not mistaken the rule you are proposing was already in exsistance some time ago or at least one similiar that was again changed. personally i don't agree with your proposal! much of the strategy in fishing tournamnets includes how far away from port you are willing to fish on a givin day! weather must be taken into consideration as well as distance, hence, amount of time lines are in the water verses running time!!!! in many instances this rule will give many an unfair advantage for many reasons, i am confident that if you think about it for a bit reasons will come to mind. the rule as applied right now promotes a level playing field (in this respect anyways) and i don't think we need to change it! this is all i am going to say regarding this topic to avoid being called a nameless dolt again. there are plenty of other rules that need to be reconsidered to bring this event back to the status it once had "back in the day" and this is not one of them! just my two cents! Dave ps... not sure how to vote NO CHANGE on your poll but that is my vote!!!!
  11. very well said Duane, unfortunately this is all too typical! I know many of us in my group will not use GLTS proudcts (weather they catch fish or not) because of these issues. not very good representation imho....... Dave
  12. my 2 cents.... i think before we all run out and get the i 68 forms there needs to be plenty more clarafication with this policy. having said that, it will vitually be impossible for these guys to enforce this on many bodies of water in our beloved nys. guys have been fishing the niagara river all winter crossing the imaginary line and have yet to have this problem. my guys and i are going to take a wait and see approach with this. i am sure you can call 10 different bp offices and get 10 different answers to this. i am going to follow what is on paper until another written document is disclosed to the public. but..... with all of these agencies running around lake o and the niagara river in their brand new $200,000.00 rib's they may need to start to justify their jobs and payrolls and start stopping everyone. who knows? Dave
  13. yes.... i did mean 4/2 my eyes don't seem to work as good as they used to. actually its great to hear that the ice is getting blown over the boom, gives it a two day head start as it sounds like weather permitting they will begin pullung it monday. quicker the ice leaves the quicker we can get on with some real fishing Dave
