  1. Here's some another sources: https://www.glerl.noaa.gov//res/glcfs/anim.php?lake=o&param=wv&type=f http://marine.weather.gov/MapClick.php?lon=-76.22622&lat=43.55061#.WO-nsmOrM5s
  2. Yeah, I figured the same too. I wasn't a jerk, we had a calm conversation. Funny thing he knew it was opening day and he knows it's hunting season. He also said the local trails are posted for hunting season. My son and I ride too, but not during the hunting seasons. You would think the guy would give it a rest, go nail the wife, paint the basement, hit the bar, or complain on some website that it's hunting season(ha!) Just sucks for me.
  3. Hi folks, opening day of gun deer season my neighbor and his friends rode dirt bikes from 10:30 to 15:30. At 10:35 opening day I watched 4 deer bolt across my back 40 and haven't seen much of anything since. Also, deer that get pushed around normally don't head towards 5 dirt bikes racing around a 5 acre track. Again, same thing this weekend. So I decided to go over to his house and talk with him. He said he's not breaking any laws he's on his own property and not riding before 10am and stopping around 3pm in consideration for hunters. I was told I could contact DEC to see if this falls under hunter harassment? Does anyone have serious suggestions?
  4. I have 43 acres my neighbor has TWO ACRES and hunts with a 308. We use to have a 10 to 12 doe throughout the property but not anymore. Word travel fast in a small town especially bragging about shooting 6 doe in one day. You can put up all the posted signs you want, but some people are just F'ed in the head when it comes to hunting season. Below is one email response from Albany DEC. Thank you for your letter asking about hunting laws. New York State law contains no minimum restrictions on acreage for hunting. There is a law, however, that prohibits the discharge of a firearm within 500 feet of a house or farm building without the permission of the owner. In the case of your neighbor, she or he could only shoot a deer (or other game) on their own property. If they are taking game on your land, that constitutes trespass and you could prosecute your neighbor under New York’s trespass laws. If you wish to pursue a prosecution, you should call our Environmental Conservation Police as soon as you detect any evidence of trespass. It is very helpful when filing a complaint to include all the factual information available to you, including time and date of the offense, and information describing any and all persons involved. Our Division of Law Enforcement has a 24/7/365 dispatch operator available toll free at 1-877-457-5680. I hope that this is helpful. Thank you. Please note my new e-mail: [email protected] Gordon R.

  5. They should put the screws to these guys, take their vehicles, phones, gear, search their homes and computers. I'd bet the ranch this is not their first time doing this. All fishermen/women should read this. Good job DEC!
  6. With a 3+ hour ride I check a few forecasting sites. Here's another to checkout http://www.glerl.noaa.gov/res/glcfs/anim.php?lake=o&param=wv&type=f
  7. Was the second boat to launch Sunday on a solo trip and setup in 125fow at 05:20am. Temps were all over the place, tried every combo I had, Flashers & SD with flies and spoons, tried all my spoon color setups and switched up every hour an a half or so out to 180fow. Trolled east to west north to south, marked some small bait pods around 100 here or there, but didn't move a rod all day. A little chatter on the radio with a few hook-up, could have been the group of boats outside of Sandy's. Congrats to those folks.
  8. I have 17ft Sea Nymph - Great Lake Special w/ 50hp and do just fine. For wind, waves, and weather I check both Underground and National to determine where I launch and fish. I'll tow it for a 30 to 45 minute to fish safely.
  9. Unfortunately, my first time out this year is delayed. Went to replace the rusty bumper on my chevy and found my trailer hitch rusted out. I'm just glad I hit this problem in my driveway and not on my 3+ hour ride up there.
  10. Wednesday solo trip. Got out late 7:30, delay caused by no trailer lights/bad fuse + a 3hr ride. Started in 80fow and came across bait out in 100ft down 80ft. Had one downrigger release(no run) and the other jump a bit, went back over picked up an small laker(18 incher) back over a third time the bait went up to 40ft. Went 3 for 6, 2 small lakers and 15 inch king (all dinks and all released). Made it out to 200fow but 80 to 120fow was the only action for me. Had the place to myself most of the day, flasher spoon combo on the wire and spoons on the DR's, washed some spin doctors fly combos too. Speed was mostly 2 1/4 on the sub-troll. Stack, stagger and change up.
  11. I'd say 90% of the time, you know how that lake can turn at times. Tomorrow it's showing 1-3 waves with a south wind so out of Mexico would be the 1 footers and Henderson would have the 3 footers.
  12. Since I have a 3+ hr ride to hit lake O.. I always check this website (http://www.wunderground.com/MAR/elm.html) for wind and wave conditions. Hope this helps.
  13. I feel to sustain a wild population of all salmon and trout species is very important. I wonder if the state would ever consider closing the smaller streams and feeder streams off rivers for natural spawning.
  14. Hey folks, I hit the lake whenever I can depending on the waves and if I can get someone to go. I have a 17ft Great Lake Special / Sea Nymph, I run 4 rods, 2 dipsy and 2 off hand crank riggers. No name on the boat yet. I use a sub-troll for speed and temp at the ball, GPS to find my way, and a Lowrance fish finder. Usually do ok out there for spring browns and late summer salmon. I don't BS anyone on how many fish I catch or what I use. There are plenty of fish and water out there for all of us. Tight lines and screaming drags everyone!
  15. Went out Saturday and Sunday out of Mexico and marked some good bait in 125 to 150 at 80 to 100 ft down. Went 0 for 1 both days, one off the rigger using a NBK, short run and gone. The other on a dipsy with a chrome SD. Very slow out there but managed to wash all my gear. Tried 1.8 to 2.5 off the sub-troll, hits came at 2.2. Mad fleas.
