  2. February 11, 2020 Public Comment Processing FWS-HQ-2019-0103 U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service HQ MS: JAO/1N 5275 Leesburg Pike Falls Church, VA. 22041-3803 Dear sirs: We urge you to apply our tax dollars to cormorant management to reverse the devastating damage that is being done to Lake Ontario. Zebra mussels, gobies, and now cormorants are a problem for our local ecology. Snyder Island is being decimated by roosting cormorants. The soil is being effected by their excrement which is causing significant damage to native vegetation. Each spring fewer and fewer trees leaf out. The same goes for other areas around Irondequoit Bay. Cormorants are having a negative effect on the Lake Ontario fishery. The DEC stocks game fish only to have their efforts devoured by cormorants. The charter boat captains are losing customers and revenue due to these invasive birds being protected. Sincerely, This is the letter we have sent to the USFWS HQ. Use it as a guideline with your own specific examples and locations. This is the only way to get something going to manage these good for nothing birds.
  3. We've switched to using the Scotty releases on riggers and have had good luck. We use the ones with 12in mono leads which lets you see if dragging small fish. It also makes setting your lines in the release easier. Very adjustable depending on target species
  4. We were made aware of this several weeks ago at my I-Bay Fish & Game Club by a member who belongs to the Conservation Council. A letter was written with some specific examples of damage to Irondequoit Bay. We plan on getting as many of our 350 members as we can to forward the letter. I'll "try" and see if I can post the letter here as an example Kevin
  5. Totally agree. Saltiest and Tekotas are top shelf reels. No question. However you can get 2 high speed Convector CV30DS's for the price of one of the others. Whenever I try to justify a new fishing purchase, I remind myself we fish the Great Lakes for maybe 4-5 months. It's not Key West.
  6. Great idea J.D. Did you use a flaring tool on copper tubing?
  7. I've got an extra Scotty antennae. Check your PM
  8. I'd wear a white coat and a chefs hat while dragging the roadkill. That will keep the drive by folks guessing for sure.
  9. Are those the ML rods from Fat Nancy's? Streamside or Riverside?
  10. Or no bail at all. Just an appearance ticket
  11. https://1000islandslive.com/man-flips-ice-boat-over-in-alexandria-bay-ny-video-footage/ Just got this on an e-mail.
  12. You probably could run mono, 20-30lb?, because of the short leads. Trying to release any dipsey with longer leads would be difficult or impossible because of line stretch. Braid or wire is the preferred way to go.
  13. Highly recommend the Boat US Unlimited Trailer Tow Assist for $14.00. Have used it on trips to 1000 Islands several times. Coupled with the Boat US app on your phone it made contact very easy. Jimski makes a good point about on the water towing. Find out where they will be dispatched from before you decide to go for unlimited water towing.
  14. I think he wants you to search Carp Madness on U-Tube.
  15. That Jackson is a handsome brute.
