  1. Owasco has been popular for a long time. There has been more than a few fishing boats on it for as long as I have been fishing it, and that's more than 40 years. The walleye stocking Chet did on it in the early 2000's made it the go to lake in CNY, second only to Oneida, and that brought fisherman from all over. The launch at Emerson has been busy for years between ice out and when the crowds begin to use the lake when the water warms up.
  2. Hey rolmops, on May 2 Fbag12 posted his catch out of Owasco of browns, rainbows, perch and walleyes on this "widely read board", and you replied by calling it "lake Wegmans". I don't understand. Why would you ask me to practice catch and release, wanting to keep your little lake to yourself, and not say a word to him?
  3. Your lake? I caught and released it into my smoker.
  4. Fished the mud line flowing out of Dutch Hollow Saturday afternoon. Caught this 15lb brown on a small blue and silver Wally diver, I figure 15 down over 140 ft. Marked a lot of fish and bait. Sent from my SM-J737U using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. Started trolling on the face of Burtis pt around 7 am, 44 degree, 2 degrees warmer than yesterday. Picked up a beauty 6lb rainbow right off the bat on a jointed Rapala and lost another fish there. Landed a walleye on a Rapala glass shad rap not long after. Started jigging using the south wind to bring me down the buoy line North of Koenig point. Landed some perch, lost a walleye and caught a couple big smallmouth. There are a couple of partially submerged logs in 15 ft of water on the South facing side of Burtis point, please be careful.
  6. sandwick50 hit the nail on the head with his reply. I totally agree that we should be able to kill geese in late January, February and early March, not only in the South zone but also the entire Western zone. That change was made at the federal level. AP geese have migrated out of the area by then and the geese left in the Finger Lakes are "park geese". Not saying that some AP geese aren't still around and that some aren't killed in early March when the season used to be open, but as we all know, waterfowl hunting is very weather related, and the weather has been weird the last several years, to say the least. I totally agree with returning to an 8 per person limit in September, increasing the limit to 15 was a mistake IMO.
  7. Fished Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, caught 28 Stripers both trolling and drifting with blood worms. The regulations changed this year, you can only keep 1 fish between 18 and 28 inches. Last year it was 18 to 28 inches and anything over 40 inches. Last year my brother and I fished 2 days and had no problem keeping our limit of 18 to 28 inch fish each day. We also caught 2 big fish, one 38 1/2 inch and one 37 inch, both had to go back in the water. This year, over the 3 days, 4 of the fish we caught (3 guys this year) were WELL over 40 inches. We caught 1 that was just over 30 lbs, 2 that were between 35 and 40 lbs, and I caught the biggest freshwater fish of my life that weighed 50 lbs, an absolute slob. All 4 fish were successfully released and swam away strong.
  8. IMO having only one mast in the center of the front of the boat causes the boat to be under the tow lines when you turn. On my brothers and my boat. we have a mast on each side. set as far forward as possible, but not too far keeps the tow line out of the rods on each side of the boat. I agree that the taller the masts the better.
  9. I start my 7 day break this Thursday, let me know if anything changes
  10. On my way down to Owasco park this morning to do some training with my lab, I watched a guy move cones and 2 " launch closed" signs to put his Crestiner in. Just now, on the way back from a walk with my family and our lab, there were 2 Troopers standing on the dock as the guy was coming in. Don't know what the outcome was but it is obvious they are checking the launches.
  11. I drove by the launch on Thursday and it was open
  12. Yes, the duck season dates will be the same for 5 years, then be re-evaluated.
  13. We had a meeting via conference call on Saturday. The Goose limit of 2 and 30 day season is still in effect for the West central zone. The question was asked if there was any chance of the Atlantic Flyway council getting us back to a 50 day, 3 bird limit anytime soon and the answer was no. No flight observations are taking place over the breeding grounds this year due to the Corona virus. Duck Oct 17 thru Nov 8, Nov 28 thru Jan 3 West Central goose Oct 24 thru Nov 8, Dec 21 thru Jan 3 South goose Oct 24 thru Jan 9 Youth weekend Oct 3 and 4 Veteran/Military Wed, Nov 11 AND Sat, Nov 14 Brant Oct 3 thru Nov 21 Scaup First 40 days of duck season the limit is 1, the last 20 days of the season the limit is 2 Good luck and safe hunting
