  1. You should have enough water. Border Patrol has used the launch for their 36'
  2. You have no idea who I am. Just like I have no idea who you are. So please don't tell me that you know better me or anyone else for that matter. I don't remember the general public being queried if they would be interested in being part of IJC. I am sure had they been there would have been representatives from the business world and other community representatives to give input. Where are the results of the studies that were done to show how an insect, takes precedence over peoples livelihoods and property. Please tell me what "highly respected" part of our government and the Canadian government appointed you. Where are you people when invasive species are entering our waters and lands. NO WHERE
  3. Interesting that there wasn't any problem with shipping or hydroelectric power prior to Prop 14. So this only had to do with back flushing the wetlands. Now correct if I am wrong but we didn't let water out in the spring because it would flood out Canadian cities. Then in the fall we open it up so that ships could get through without any problems because of summer evaporation. So please Mr. IJC explain to me how your plan has helped. Go back to the way it was. Your plan has done nothing but cost this state and people millions of dollars. It has not benefited anyone. It destroys lake front properties when it is high and when it is low boaters, marinas, waterfront owners with docks, waterfront restaurants, charter fishing etc. , suffer and lose money. Many of these businesses lost money because of COVID shutdown and restrictions imposed on them. So again I ask how does your plan benefit anyone. I grew up on the water, recreate on the water and work on the water. I still see plenty of redwing blackbirds, muskrats and other marsh wildlife thriving. So please Mr. IJC don't tell me that your "plan" has a positive effect on anything. It needs to be repealed asap.
  4. Alewife population looks good this year on the south shore. I had browns puking them up all over my boat yesterday.
  5. Top three from a great day yesterday. Rats and Renoskys in green and chartreuse were the go to. 38 deg water was the ticket. Thanks to Rich Hajecki for suggesting the Genny over Bear. I did learn a little Capt.
  6. Thanks Dan. I can attest to Port of Rochester being hairy. I launched there yesterday. Army Corps was there too putting a boat in. It appeared that they were doing soundings for the McKie cement freighter, who was staged at the mouth waiting to come in. I don’t know if she was able to. I have never seen it this low in the spring.
  7. I have a couple questions for you all. Is it worth removing the front treble off of a stick bait. And what terminal tackle to use when running spoons and when running stick baits. I already use a #8 spro between mainline and leader. I have used duolock snaps w/out swivel at the lure end but wondered if I should use a snap swivel there too. Thanks
  8. So the inflows are average, current lake level is below average and outflow is above average. Why can't they just leave things alone and go back to the way it was pre-proposition 2014?
  9. You are oh so right. Good idea sensei. Thx
  10. Thanks Rich, That's what I figured. I was going to go down tomorrow but I'm not about to destroy the keel of my boat. Maybe I should bring waders and anchor it in the creek while I park. Wouldn't that be a sight.
  11. Has anyone launched out of Bear Creek yet? I checked it out last week and with the water so low, it looked real sketchy. There didn't appear to be anywhere to tie off without destroying your boat.
  12. Holy crap Les. I'd be calling the law enforcement for sure.
  13. Good guy and good family. Sorry to hear. Thoughts and prayers
  14. Im not a pro by any stretch of the imagination but my 2 cents is 10lb or 12lb Seagur red label.
  15. Fixed all the way for all the reasons Nautitroller listed. I started off many many years ago shooting Muzzy 100 three blade. Killed a lot of deer with them but tuning was always a long process. Then expandables came on the market and I tried several including spitfires and rages. Lost quite a few deer that I put good hits on for a lot of reasons. Ie penetration, poor blood trails, didn't open etc. I went back to shooting fixed heads and haven't looked back. The short fixed blade broadheads fly really well out of a well tuned bow. My personal preference are Slick Tricks 100 gr 1 1/8" cutting dia. but there are a ton of good ones out there. You have to put the time in, tune the bow and practice. Then be patient and take a good shot. Do yourself and the deer the favor. My 2 cents

    Ibay 9/29

    Did Port Bay yesterday. Terrible. Water is still too warm. 67deg yesterday. This weeks rain and dropping temps will get things going.
  17. The launch is open but the docks aren't. They are still under water.
  18. Dipiazza, What is the white rod extending up from your planers boards? I assume to keep the line from catching the water
