  1. Killed 2 more roosters over Hank today in a field that has been hunted hard all weekend with no birds put in it since Saturday morning. I say killed 2, Hank caught one, a wounded bird with a broken wing. With freezers full of moose meat, I plan on hunting Hank every day I am not working for anything with wings. Good luck and safe hunting.
  2. Went to our spot in Sterling only to find 2 guys saying they had permission too. My friend who has permission called the owner later in the day and found out we are the only ones that can hunt there. I hope to run in to those two again . This morning I killed 2 pheasants over Hank. I am blessed to have such a good, well rounded dog. Good luck and safe hunting
  3. Thanks to all who have replied. I am blessed in so many ways. Non-residents have an opportunity that residents don't in the fact that we can buy chances in blocks of 10. Not saying that means you will get picked, but it helps and is a money maker for the state.
  4. I drew a moose tag in Maine for last week in zone 8. My 16 year old son was my subpermitee. On Tuesday morning we killed a 36 inch wide, 704 pound bull. We had the best time together. This was our 3rd trip together and I wouldn't trade trade these experiences for the world. I have been fortunate enough to take many trips with my dad and want to show my son other opportunities that are available outside New York. The outfitter was first class and would recommend him to anyone.
  5. We ended the September season with just over 80 birds. We never hunted a field, but split our hunts up between 6 different bodies of water. We killed 3 bands, one neck collar on opening day that was banded on Long Island. The dogs got lots of work and I spent a lot of quality time with family and friends. Looking forward to the Northern opener this Saturday. Good luck and safe hunting.
  6. I am looking for goose chairs. PM if you have any you want to get rid of and a price. Thanks
  7. A friend of mine has family coming into town July 17 thru 19 and needs recommendations for charter boats on Cayuga. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  8. I fished Skinny last Sunday morning and Wednesday morning with my son and his friend. We kept 11 smallmouth, a dozen huge perch and 2 big rockies Wednesday and I kept 5 smallies and a bunch of big perch on Sunday. I like throwing a pumpkinseed Slider, but anything imitating a crab will catch fish. I start fishing a little after 5am and concentrate in 10ft of water of water or less. The smallmouth are excellent eating out of that lake. Good luck
  9. They were longer than 18" I didn't get an actual length.

  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. Your lake? I caught and released it into my smoker.
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. I start my 7 day break this Thursday, let me know if anything changes
