  1. How would a state law from one state be upheld in another? Maybe I'm missing something here....

    Legacy- 2018 Deer Season

    Little ticked right now. NYSEG just came through a spot near me where the deer travel too and from an AG field they leveled all the brush and weeds they walk through. I haven't seen a deer since. Their timing sucked! Hoping things settle down and they start traveling through there. I haven't seen a deer on my 40 acres in a week. Boy I hope they start to turn on or at least start coming through again. I had a few small rubs and scrapes but they seem to been abandoned. Had this guy and a handful of other small bucks on camera a bunch of times but haven't seen him since they came through. Haven't seen him during the day but if I do I'll decide then whether he gets a pass or not. Betting he scores around 130" with the 2nd main beam, if he is the same one I saw last year he was 120" 8 point last year.

    Sealing underside of plywood floor..

    Make sure you use either 4200 or 5200 by 3m. 5200 is permanent and only can be removed physically.

    Sealing underside of plywood floor..

    I wouldn't be sealing anything unless I'm completely encapsulating it. If you don't allow it to breath on the bottom where the water will be getting to then it will rot quicker than anything, pressure treated or not. I would just do as the original was it lasted long enough.
  5. There are a few but one that comes to mind is the Pillar Point derby that is opening weekend. I'm not sure if the NYS Summer Classic is CR or not. I can't remember the name of the other one, I doubt you will get the tournament to change their rules or guidelines as it would require a lot more work. I know Pillar Point is a 1 fish deal so that helps so you can cull a couple fish and isn't based on a 1 man limit. Same for the Summer classic I believe. Same goes for all the Nothern and Walleye tournaments up there.
  6. Not all the tourneys are C&R especially the small tourneys ran by the local shops. As far as I know the only C&R tourney on the St. Law. is the bass masters.

    Here's a good one

    No way to really stop it just deal or change direction of the troll. The slower you go the worse it gets.

    I just can't bring myself to eat bass when I can get myself some walleye or perch, the perch are on fire right now.

    What boat should I buy

    I think starcraft, starweld, smokercraft, and sun chaser have transferable hull warranty to 2nd owner. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

    Thru hull leak?

    Leave it on land and start to fill the bilge with a hose. Once you get some water in the bilge it should show you where it is coming from. I'm not sure how the stringers and bulkheads are laid out in the boat but could it be water trapped in spots that wouldn't usually allow to drain unless the boat is tossed around? Does the boat seem slower to plane, slower top speed, plowing in the water more? I ask because I wonder if the foam is draining slowly because it absorbed some water. Could be a handful of things but I would consider filling the bottom of the boat to see if water leaks out somewhere. Your thru hull fittings could be crack or the sealant is bad. I wouldn't think it would happen 11 years later but stranger things could happen.

    Anyone in the St. Lawrence and jefferson county area should contact their local law enforcement. Sad part is that it's a little late being the season opens this weekend. https://www.dec.ny.gov/about/696.html

    Bass ripped off the beds

    I can remember as a kid talking to my father about fishing for bass and his words have stuck with me all the years later. At that point it was illegal to target any species out of season. This C&R crap came about when bass tournaments started getting big. It doesn't help the fishery whatsoever, but I see all these guys even a friend of mine that loves to bass fish do C&R before the season (where it is legal). If you have that kind of passion for something, why try and jeopardize its future? Not really they just donate money I have never actually saw them do anything that helps. They just donate money to conservation where it lines someones pocket it doesn't ever make it back to the fishery. Maybe see if the state parks will "remind" people that come to launch and fish. With the introduction of invasive species like the gobies and similar all bass fishing on Lake ontario and its tributaries should be closed to C&R along with any other lakes where the goby is present. These little bastards will eat up a nest of eggs faster than anything else out there. I have had a big female at the end of my dock for years (no telling it is the same fish) and have watched these A$$hats throw all sorts of artificial lures trying to get bass. I'm happy they don't get close enough to my dock to pull her off the bed.
