  1. I cant speak for LOTSA or ELOTSA but the Niagara county fishery adiversy board was not notified. And we get all of the stocking notice emails for area 9 so it's not like they dont have the email list.
  2. Didn't know about this at all either and then saw some random comment by bill hilts on fb about how it went. Definitely pissed about the lack of communication from the DEC. Thanks for posting the pre recorded link.
  3. i no longer push my clients to get into the derby because of the removal of the steelhead division.
  4. The DEC is either iin creditably smart or in creditably stupid.
  5. I like your idea of partnering with BPS and see if the event could be televised. Also i don't think Lakers should be allowed. I believe there should be a tournament or 2 for Lake trout but they shouldn't be apart of this tournament. I like the no observer idea and just have boat checks but with the boarder issue i don't see how this is possible. I don't think that teams should be allowed to go over into Canada, as its a US tournament so US waters. Also i don't see how Canadian dollar entry fee being on par with US dollar fee is fair. As it will only cause the overall payout to be smaller and cause US teams to basically pay more.
  6. If the rule doesn't effect anyone as you say why reduce the limit for steelhead from 3 to 2? If it doesn't affect anyone then it will not increase the numbers of steelhead which is the rational for the proposed change. So all this would do if you are correct is just create animosity between lake and trib anglers and open the door for more regulations. Makes one think doesn't it.
  7. I think this is a key part of this. Catch and release is fine but the more the rules go toward catch and release only the more this fishery will become an elitist fishery only just like how the Atlantic Salmon fishery is. So i see this as them starting down the road of a fishery that's for everyone to a fishery for only those with extremely deep pockets.
  8. i love how it says saturday Northwest wind 15 to 20 knots but wave heights are 2 to 4 feet. A yeah right.
  9. You can also go and fish the main part of the salmon river, there is normally bass and a few trout around in there, and you can stop at the hatchery as well. Even tho there wont be much going on at the hatchery at this time it is still cool to see.
  10. I run Salmonboy Sportfishing and would be more then happy to get you and your son in law out fishing.
  11. Yes the ice bridge broke last week i believe.
  12. NICE!!!!!!!!!! I'm hoping these early kings means its going to be another great season.
  13. I'm looking to get new Canvas drop curtains for my boat and I was wondering if anyone could recommend someone in the Pulaski NY area.
  14. I would go with electric downriggers as i find that on the east end you end up fishing 100 plus feet down that time of year to get to the fish. It also maybe beneficial to take a charter for your first time. It would help shorten the learning curve and may save you some money by showing you what to buy and what not to buy. Or if you are thinking of doing this just as a one time thing it would be a lot cheaper to charter then to buy downriggers and all the lures needed for salmon fishing.
  15. Don't worry a lot and i mean a lot of salmon made it through the snaggers to spawn.
  16. I had this exact problem on my boat. There is two ways around this issue. They make spark plug wires that wont throw off any interference tho i can't remember what they where called. The other way around this is to run the hawk off of a different battery then what your main engine is running off of.
  17. Cooper is nice in that you don't need as much of it to achieve the same depth as LC but I find it a little harder to use as on some reels it can have a tendency to tangle on the reel where LC is more user friendly.
  18. i believe this when i drive down it and my head doesn't hit the roof of my vehicle.
  19. Yeah hate to say it but I'd be extremely surprised this year's water level isn't a total repeat of last years.
  20. i find that a lot of the time your hound dogs don't seem to chew on things as much as say a lab. But thats just been my experience so far.
  21. you know that is very true, there really is no need to go to Canada. We where going in the winter so now we just go to the Adirondacks instead.
  22. I used to go with my family up to a place by Timmins and stopped doing because of the same issues. The walleye, pike, and splake fishing was awesome but not worth the issues at the boarder.
  23. Agreed and what do you consider native. I get lake trout and Atlantic salmon are native but the strain of both of those fish is gone just like the blue pike so I don't think todays Lake trout and Atlantic's are any more native then kings and Steelhead as there note totally the same fish that was in the lake 200 years ago.
  24. Don't feel bad about the ocean charter i experience the same thing on the Kenai. A lot of fish around and we just kept doing the same thing with very little results. I think a lot guides in vacation areas like that don't get a lot of experienced anglers.
