I tend to agree with making a direct Cornell contact getting better results. This is not something new to this year on this lake. All of you know the change this lake has gone through in the past 4 or so years. I know fish have been given to DEC employees in the past. What was the outcome of samples? How serious is DEC taking the declining results fisherman are having and have had the past few years? A couple years ago the FLTA held a tournament on this lake with about 17 to 20 boats fishing and caught like 3 fish total. There are some very experienced fisherman in that club. DEC owns and operates their own boats with employees that work 40 hour weeks. Seems to me they could take a ride and see the same thing Nick has been seeing. Maybe they don't have the same interest as the people that fish this lake. They put a gill net in the lake, get some fish and say the there is nothing wrong. What do the diary fisherman say? Well I've said enough.....maybe they are working hard with these concerns but never publish info for the local fisherman to see.
