  1. Nice write up for you Brian. “Cuddly” and catches fish. You sure have them dialed in.
  2. That’s news to me. Almost every launch I go to, I just have to leave the pass on the dash. Seems a little dumb to walk up to a car in a lot, look at the guys empire pass for seniors, and then tell him to use the kiosk. But then again, this is New York. The only launch that I go to, and believe me, I’ve been to a lot, that looks at the passes is at the small boat harbor in buffalo. At that launch, a man at the gate takes your pass and records the number and gives it back. When he is not there, I simply leave the pass on the dash..
  3. I dint understand. Even though I have the parking permit, I have to get a ticket at the booth? Isn’t it free during the week? How dies that work.?
  4. I agree with the enforcement but I question the use of the State Police. It seems that this has been a job by local sheriffs departments and they are on the water and do a good job. As far as the regs go, I would suggest that we all refresh ourseves periodiccally since they can change. Rules are different for under 16' vs between16'and 26'. For example, you do not need a fire extinguisher if you carry an exposed portable gas tank and it is not under a seat but why wouldn't you? You also do not need flares as long as you have the CG approved distress flag and again, why wouldn't you. And, in case you do have all the required CG safety equipment there are sometimes additional requirements by local towns and counties. I once was warned on I bay about carrying a rag on board to mop up an oil spill or if I was willing to use my shirt. Local ordinance for that one. They can get picky!
  5. I think he will be about a month late. I have not fished for them but I know people that have done really well in the north end. There are plenty of other panfish to keep him busy though. Also, way too many pickerel and bass.
  6. Next year Gator, next year!
  7. Nice. That’s usually the area I fish but I have not had a chance to get there yet this season. That area is usually good right up until July but sometimes you will find them on the edge of the drop from 35-40.
  8. Nice job. We were in Keuka today. The perch population is very low there. When the bait crashed a few years ago the lakers and everything else including big perch fed on the young perch. It’s been tough there.
  9. I have fished for perch in Cayuga a lot but not from there. I usually launch at union springs and fish directly across from launch on the west side and then move south of that. Sometimes I hit them and sometimes not so much. Good luck and let us know how you make out.

    SLR perch

    It’s a pretty tough thing to catch post spawn perch in my areas. Usually have to wait a couple of weeks. Nice going.
  11. you Are an old fart!
  12. Does that mean the ice is off at the south end of Sodus by Bay Bridge? If so, its perch time too.
  13. Good luck out there. I saw a few people out jigging the other day but don’t know how they did. Let us know how you make out.
  14. I only go to Honeoye on even numbered days.
  15. I would have never guessed. Nice fish
  16. I live close to the ponds like Gambler and Longspurs and have checked them through 45 yrs! Hate to admit that! This year seems to be different than anything I can remember. They should be solid from one end to another. These large pot holes are new to me. Wind, currents, and our up down temps different than most years. This just means that I should have the boat ready
  17. I have not seen too many problems over the years up until the past few years. It seems it is getting worse, not better. Marking your "secret" spot with an empty propane cylinder is not the way to go. Unfortunately, attitude and the way you were brought up is a hard thing to change.
  18. You outfished me 33 to 2! I could not find them 6 stops from 18-36’ produced dinks. I am fishing in your truck’s tailgate from now on.
  19. Yikes Guess Ill head out tomorrow. wind should be doable as the day progresses.
  20. At Sodus, take your pick. Emeralds, fat heads, mousies, perch eyes. .
  21. Longspurs, Glad you found them. I made the mistake of going to Gator and Silver fox's secret Sodus spot that only God and the seagulls know. Apparently the seagulls got there before me. Got a few quick fish and then they vanished. We chased around a bit but never found anything more than dinks. One thing to note is that the ice varied a bit depending on where you were. I found only 6" out in 36' in a direct line with the channel. Further south into the bay and closer to shore were much better.
  22. Good Luck Tommy. I hunted with you over at Keiths the other day. I have been hitting the Java area the past two afternoons in a very quiet woods except for a very talkative owl. Lots of fresh sign but nothing while I'm there. For some reason, I am seeing quite a few deer in the fields around there in the middle of the day. I might adjust my sit time.
  23. Jeez Less. I can't read all that without taking a nap However, been there, done that. Sometime, we should deploy my polar and your tent. It would look like a new invention out there to some of the younger guys. I am getting, by way of Christmas a bunch of new toys including a new Legend xl thermal. Weighs 60 lbs but I have the millennium chair that I will put in instead of their chair to lower the weight. Then again, I'll just let Gambel pull it. He won't notice the difference
