  1. I only remember all day trips which were 8hrs. I looked into Yankee Fleet but I went with Clipper Fleet. I think he folded. The slots were killing his business. You would catch haddock and cod all day long but only end up with a handful of keepers. Most were an inch too short. It was still more fun than shopping with my wife. Good luck. It's the east wind you have to worry about if you got a weak stomach.
  2. I need more information. I don't grab my pitchfork and get my panties all bunched up over concern which may be warranted but not necessarily of sky falling proportions. I don't remember these issues when it was a coal plant. I do remember the fishing. Checks and balances - something our governments aren't very good at. Example - Walmart gets to develop wetlands and no one else does. Think about why... IDK any of the FL lake's organizations but they should be focused on human waste being discharged into the lake. This is my "whataboutism" for today.
  3. I was on vacation in old forge about 10 years ago and they had a rack in one of the touristy type stores and it had 3 inch ends polished white tail antlers for $12. They were from younger age class bucks too. Made me go hmmmm.... If you can find something Yuppies want you can make a decent living. They will pay $7.50 for a boat cleat in the kayak section while we pay $2 for the same cleat in the marine section. A friend of mine was doing antler art and he was making handles for grill utensils etc. If you have a lot of antlers of the same side and same general size you can make chandeliers. Most people I know do nothing with them - even the better ones.
  4. Best all around experience is first nice day in early to middle of April. Birds, fish, etc... Bring polarized sun glasses and you won't have to look hard. I loved taking my family but haven't done it in a while - teenagers.
  5. I have trail cam pics to show that the red fox is aggressively hunting the turkeys.
  6. I have never seen a yote that big. I hear they are getting more aggressive but not in my area.., I guess keep shooting at them and they stay in their own lane. I have May pics of them following Does that are ready to drop. This year I did a sit and deer were spooked and I was wondering how I got busted with the wind in my favor. Pretty soon the deer were running back and forth in the brush with a Yote chasing them. I was hoping the deer would bust out in the field so I could get a shot but never happened. Going at them next month with the call - meat pile has been quiet all season so I figure they have an easier (and safer) meal somewhere else.
  7. I would feel more comfortable if they did a pilot program with a few bodies of water that are different from one another with at least one significant attribute and then track changes. Do perch etc. and see what correlates well with the changes. If this approach is solid then expand to the entire state.
  8. Is this a response to ice fisherman? The Crappie changes they made before I got behind but I am not sure what good this is going to do. I am worried about unintended consequences. Doesn't matter much to me. I usually keep 20-30. But more bluegill doesn't mean bigger bluegill.
  9. Looking for your honey hole. Must be over this knoll.
  10. I eat deer... I will try to chew slow as to not trigger Bill's driveway alarm. Seriously good luck everyone - already got my meat pile but no action. I think they have safer sources right now.
  11. The two floods in the 70s created huge holes very deep in most cases in the Chemung watershed. The flood control reservoirs has reduced high water and the DEC very seldom lets property owners fortify their shoreline so water is spreading out and filling in those deeper holes. I remember the hole above Patterson bridge in Corning was like a lake and you couldn't see bottom. Now I see geese standing in the middle of it in the summer. Coincidentally, My best Walleye catching years are from wet years with big storms and not dry like this year.
  12. The fawns can visit her in your freezer.
  13. Mine went off 2 days after I shot my doe. Figure that one out...
  14. Bob, I am in Steuben County. Some holes remain the same but where I caught them last year all the structure left with the high water. Even the bass relocated. I do not know much about Susky and how much change it goes thru with high water but rivers can change. I thought I saw that there are good numbers of young fish up in Vestal. I have always found river walleye fishing challenging but rewarding as well.
