  1. I had a really nice trip there two weeks ago. First time for pannies there for me.  Try around the 25-35’ depth a little to the right (west) of the harbor entrance. There were plenty of 7-9” perch there.  If that doesn’t work, move down the east shore fishing real shallow between the docks.  You will hit really big sunfish, some perch, Rockies and a bass or two in there.  I would use minnows in the deep water and small crayfish or maybe plastics along the shore.  Good luck.

  2. I launched my 16 1/2 alumacraft and my buddy launched his 17’ aluminum boat there with no problems.  Just use the far left or right and push the boat away from the concrete pad and up on the mud shallows next to it.

    Really stupid situation.

  3. Here’s a question for you Kevin.  You and I fish different waters but target the same fish. For some reason, I find more fish , perch and crappies., like older wooden docks and pier posts than newer metal ones.  I find this especially true in Keuka and Sodus and port bay.  What’s it like up north?

  4. For the life of me, I can not catch Erie perch on plastics. They just prefer Niagaras.  I have caught them on buckshot spoons and stingnose minnows.  But, Erie fishing is anywhere from 50-70’ deep fishing.  Everywhere else I fish, plastics rule.  

  5. I have not been out but I have heard of a few good catches in the bay.  Traditionally, this is when you should be on Sodus. Targeting shallow areas in 12-14’ should do it for you. Good luck. 

  6. I saw that bubba too.  How many perch can you get threw at a time.  I have been using an American angler but recently the “ new” blade replacements are worse than the original. Thinking about cordless.

  7. Not quite right about that Brian.  They cut off about the last day or two of muzzleloader for a long Christmas break. It is always best to call.  I have been using Swans for six years now and they will make anything you want as long as they make the same product out of beef/ pork.  There are a few German sausages they have made for me that are not on their official list.  Just ask. And, while your there, stay and have lunch. Try a sampler meal of their brats and wurst.  Inexpensive and very good.

  8. First deer I ever got from my living room.  Sat in 70 degree comfort watching the outdoor Chanel when Gamble called.  I’ll publicly thank Kieth and Brian for their support.  It’s tough to miss most and possibly all of deer season but it’s great to know you have good friends.  

  9. I admit, I followed the hype about rage when they first came out.  The first deer that I shot at was a picture perfect broadside buck at 30 yds and he was down within 20 yds with that “ tv” hole through both sides. The next two deer were much luckier. Watched the rage hit and glance off on an angling away shot and watched a doe run off with a rage in the shoulder blade that never went through.  One of the things that is not really talked about is the lb bow you shoot. I can only pull 55 lbs.  that’s simply not enough for a mechanical to work 100% of the time. I went back to slick tricks and other than a muzzy or two will stay with them.

  10. I own a ten point shadow light with the crank and I also shot the Parker at the archery shop when I was deciding between the two.  The Parker was a neat crossbow. All I had to do was press a button and the big co2 cartridge would draw the bow.  The reason I did not buy it was that it was heavier than the ten point model I bought by at least five pounds.  I also was concerned about how reliable the mechanism would last through the years.  I bought a mono pod accessory for the ten point. It snaps on and off and I have used it successfully in the tent and in a tree stand.  It allows you to shoot without having to hold up the full weight of the bow.  Great for people with a handicap.  Believe me, I know.  Ten point is a good company and they stand bye their bows.

  11. Hey longspurs, I somehow forgot what a dedicated waterfowl hunter you are. Now that I see how successful you are, I figure a little goose jerky out on the ice this winter is in order :smile:  I’m recovering from knee replacement but should be on first ice without a problem.  Keep up the good work.

  12. This time of year the water temp is the key. When the big lake turns over, it forces them in for short spurts of time throughout September. Last year, we really did not find any in the bay until temps were in the upper 50’s around mid month. I did find them last year in Fairhaven for the first two weeks of October and also Erie. Kept us busy until they showed up locally.
