  1. Well if one wants to deal with 30 mph winds out of the south have at it lol...For those who have got out this week fishing was pretty good. The few charters did get fish in tight as usual. I get dumped in next week. CU on the water..
  2. There is only three things you need to do. Fish FIsh and Fish...Have fun out there take your time, experiment on your own desire. The more time you spend on the water will gain experience. Im certain you have ample equipment and lours to get the job done. Browns are in close fish those, even try flat lining with spoons. Your knowledge will grow with time spent on the water. There are no guarantees but with time and energy you will catch fish on a regular basis...Good luck
  3. typical Spring weather now. The lake was rockin the last couple of days. First time ive seen a charter boat go out. Well see what they do. The water level is fine. I have seen it a lot higher and lower as well. Most of the run off is gone so we should be fine. Im sure there is fish out there. Good time for calico's in the south end. my dump in date is the 19th...Go get em lol..
  4. Everything should be fine. The ice is melting away, Its mostly at the south end where we all are. The chute will remain open and honestly the water level is where it should be for this time of year. I would actually like to see it come up just a tad.
  5. Aa I expected funding has been approved and the Army Core of Engineers will begin planning. It looks worse than it really is. They may seek additional funding to redo more of the piers but for now geese are returning but there still is more winter left but Spring is getting close...
  6. Here is an update. The ladders are holding the barrier into place for now. There is still plenty of room for nautical access in and out of the lake. We still have a way to go with this..Waters and winds typically get harder on the piers in the initial Spring. The goal now is to prevent any more separation between the wall and metal barriers. I will update as we hear more.
  7. Well its considered a "safe harbor" access owned by the federal govt maintained by the Army core of Engineers. Basically it has to stay open. to nautical traffic. They may close it for a short time for certain parts of the repair but it wont really effect boats unless it totally rips off and creates a serious hazard. And even at that point it would get fixed relatively quick for reopening the harbor....Definitely will be closed to foot traffic. We will update once we hear more....
  8. We will be fine, yes the water level is high but their are still many factors of weather within the next few months that will shape reality....If we get minimal rain in the Spring which is common with an El Nino year like we have then the water will be at a nice level...Time will tell but no need for panic too early lol..

    Fair Haven Pier Trouble

    Ive been waiting for this to happen for the past 30 years. That section has been fading away for decades. Dont worry this is owned and maintained by the federal govt in cooperation with the army core of engineers. That pier is considered to be a safe passageway to a safe harbor therefore qualifying for federal funding. That being said if they did close the pier it would be to foot traffic. Any waterway access would really not be effected with exception of maybe a short time for certain parts of the repair There always has to be open passageway for a "safe harbor"...Our illustrious senators have already stated they will start the process for funding.....And it will get worse in the next month. Their is still a ton of ice jam out on that lake and the seas being high will continue to rip it apart....But it will get fixed and really shouldnt be a concern that we cant get out and fish... Politically speaking lol....Ironically the funding the govt accesses for this type of scenario comes from the military funding that trump can use in his national emergency declaration to fund the wall...Lol
  10. Its ice fishing time lol. We had 80 mph winds last week but Fair Haven seemed to hold its own. Bay is frozen and the lake is an ice barrier from all those heavy winds. Today is March 1st but dont let that fool anyone...stay warm its going to get freezing again..
  11. Merry Xmas everyone, I hope U all have a fun safe holiday season. Not much ice or snow to report, Its been windy and cold...Again enjoy the holidays. Honestly it wont be too long b4 were all out here again..
  12. Good luck to those who fished the FH challenge today. Kinda breezy but should be ok.
  13. The fishing continues.....Congratulations to the winners of this weekends A-TOM-MIK invitational. After the gun shot sendoff most went East towards the dunes....the few that went west to Fair Haven got a taste of how good the fishing is.and made the correct choice because all three top prize winners fished Fair Haven... A special congratulations to my buddies aboard Time Flys 2 for their 3rd place finish in the tourney..Stick to your guns boys!!..Fair Haven represent!!
