  2. Harbor freight pack of 150 assorted on sale this week for $7.99.
  3. I use this sometimes during rough seas or running mag dipseys to keep from having to tighten the drag beyond what I call a normal setting. Just half hitch a rubberband on the line above the reel and drop the open loop over the handle. When the fish hits it will cut the ruberband or it can be easily broken if it's stubborn.
  4. Anchor Resort, Screwy Louies, Fair Haven Motel, Pleasent Beach Hotel, Holiday Harbor campground just the first few that come to mind.

The browns were still available in 20 foot of water in the mornings before boat traffic shut them down. best lures were caremel dolphin and brass watermelon stingers. kings were in abundance Saturday and Sunday in the 160-250 range. They were scattered on monday but could still find a few. Atomik Hammer, TG, shredded hammer were the best producers there behind white, white/green, mt dew spindoctors.

  15. Copied fron NYS regs. Please read the last paragraph. Personal Watercraft Mandatory Education Requirements New York requires that anyone operating a personal watercraft complete an approved course in boating safety or otherwise be accompanied, on board, by someone 18 years of age or older who is the holder of an approved boating safety certificate. Certificates are required to be carried at all times when operating the personal watercraft. An approved course of instruction includes an 8-hour classroom session and a proctored examination. Certificates issued by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and the U.S. Power Squadron are acceptable alternative certification under state law. Previously issued young boater safety certificates, issued by the State of New York, are also acceptable. An operator who is the resident of another state or country and is the holder of a valid boating safety certificate issued pursuant to the laws of the operator’s resident state or country is exempt from the NYS certification requirement however they must have the certificate with them when operating. The following individuals are exempt from the personal watercraft educational requirements: both U.S. and Canadian licensed commercial vessel operators, NYS certified boating instructors, certified instructors of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary and the U.S. Power Squadrons, peace/police officers, fire/rescue personnel and lifeguards acting pursuant to their assigned duties.

  17. The economy definatly has taken it's toll. We are way down on charters so far this year. Can't blame it on the fishing, that has been great.
  18. The east end of Lake O is still on fire with browns preferring the 10-15 ' of water. Most hits came off the boards. Rapala silver or gold sticks, Stingers in NBK and Savant Jakes in Goby were the ticket today. Had a couple of steelies mixed in.
  19. We had the same experiance yesterday. They preferred the flat lines off the boards to the riggers. Plenty of action. Black gold, silver gold sticks. NBK and Goby were hot on the spoons. Conditions were overcast, water was green and 46 degrees.
