  1. It does except it didn't have that dark tube shape above it. It just looked like a big pillar from the lake surface straight up into the clouds and the clouds were nasty looking.
  2. Yesterday afternoon we were fishing out of Sandy Creek in Monroe County which is about 20 miles west of Rochester. My buddy was driving the boat heading west while we were trolling. I'm sitting turned around facing east watching the rods while he is driving. For as many times that I have been out fishing, I have never seen anything like this before. I'm looking in the distance at some strange clouds and I see what looks like a cloud that is shaped like a huge pillar. This thing is coming straight down from the clouds to the surface of the lake. It was a long ways off. This was really strange looking. I say to my buddy, Look at this strange cloud coming straight down to the water". He turns around and says to me I hope it's not coming our way, that looks like a water spout. After a short while it just disappeared. Never seen anything like it. I wish I had taken a picture of it
  3. Rob, Are you guys going to have a flea market or used tackle sale this spring?
  4. Hey everyone, This might give you something to do this weekend. Check out these seminars. Type in New York Sportsman Expo
  5. I have a mold that makes egg sinkers1/2, 3/4. 2,3,5,6 and 8 oz. I was thinking of running a wire through them and twisting the end into a circle and attach planer board clips like a homemade snap weight. I bought a bunch of clips from Russ of Anglers Ave at the Niagara Show 2 years ago. I'm going give them a try this summer. They're not perfectly round so I don't know how they are going to work.
  6. I can still see his smiling face hanging out the side of the boat at the dock as we would be heading out to the lake. Niagara Show, Sandy Creek Shootout or where ever I ran into him, he always had a smile on his face. He was one of the GREAT ones. Like Whaler said, "missed but not forgotten".

    Hi Bosco, PM sent.
  8. Congratulations Bill. When you saved that ladies life last month one of the guys said karma will pay you. God has truly blessed you!! Beautiful fish.
  9. I'm sorry to hear that your friend passed away.  Did he live on Westside Drive near Pixley Road in Gates?

  10. This bail reform has to change. There have been cases of criminals dragging people out of their cars, stealing the car, getting into a police chase, crashing the car and given an appearance ticket. Out of state felons committing felonies and given appearance tickets to who never show up in court. Talk to anyone who works in the prison system and they will tell you about the prisoners who have been released that should not have been. Cuomo was bragging last year how New York was the safest state in the country because it had the lowest amount of prisoners in state prisons. That's because he released a lot of them. The Safe Act. The way he snuck that in overnight. What has that done to cut crime. Our crime is worst now that it has ever been.
  11. Great job Bill. I nick named you the "One man wrecking crew" when we were watching you lifting those docks in the water at Tommy's a few years back. God had you in the right place at the right time.
  12. If anyone has any used Bert's rod holders they want to sell that are in decent shape, please let me know. I will travel to Buffalo/Niagara Falls, Oswego/Syracuse or southern tier of New York.
  13. Should you tell the observers raspberry filled jelly doughnuts are a nice treat on the boat?
  14. That is GREAT. I will glad to have him show me next spring. I've never had a boat like this.
  15. Thanks Keith. I've never owned a hot tub before. Hey, maybe with some gorilla tape I might be able to patch her up. Tommy, how about we set it up at the marina?
  16. As some of you guys know, I bought the "Mr. Breeze" boat this past weekend. I'm not going to put her in until next spring. I heard there is also a large tractor tire buried in the mud in the middle of the creek just North of Tommy's. The last thing I want to do is hit one of these objects. I have a 14' aluminum boat, a couple of come a-longs and a large grappling hook. The 14' boat with oars would be a lot easier to maneuver in the creek than a large fishing boat. I'm retired and free anytime, I just need some help getting those things out of the creek. Let me know if you want to get together and spend a couple hours to get these things out of the way so no one else hits them.
  17. I watched a guys trailer go off the ramp at Irondequoit a few days ago.
  18. Chinook 35, What a great article. Very informative and interesting. Thanks for sharing.
