  1. Yup the bay has been pretty good so far although Father's Day was slow for me! Kinda think the weather was possibly just too nice that day...

    Haven't fished Blind Sodus in a year or so, I never really had a great time back there just a few largemouth here and there but I would have figured with it breaking open the way it did, it actually would help out the water quality a lot. Mid to end of summer back there used to just be kinda nasty brownish water. Once it breached it flushed it out a whole lot. Not saying it's a good thing though just saying it definitely changed a lot after that.
  3. I'm in the same boat as you, but really the dog days of summer are my least favorite times to bass fish except for early morning. I can go out on my home port for 5 hours and end up with 4 fish. Between getting the boat ready, waking up early, getting everything together and going out in the hot sun, it can get pretty daunting and just frustrating. I said a couple weeks ago I was done in the bays until we get into September and the water starts coming down in temp. Lake O is worth focusing on more during summer than any of the bays.
  4. Yes and I think it opened about a week ago
  5. smallmouth are good but I have kept one in the past 20 years or so, and that was last year. I'd rather C&R
  6. I was surprised the Coast Guard didn't even check the date of my flares when I was stopped.
  7. Damn I should've read more than 2 out of the 4 pages.
  8. Does any local PD or NYS PD really have the right to do random checks on the water with no probable cause? I know the Coast Guard to be the only law enforcement agency (in NY) with this right - to stop you for whatever reason at all. If any other water patrol is able to do that, that's news to me. I was stopped in 2017 in Fair Haven by the Coast Guard for a "safety check" and it was quick and easy, probably because I had everything. They give you a paper that says everything checks out and it's good for 1 year, in case you get stopped again you just show them that. The Cayuga County Sheriffs have been out a lot this year, though I've never seen them do boat checks of any sort whatsoever.
  9. Kayak fish the canal - believe it or not there's pretty decent bass fishing throughout the canal and it can be a fun summer time spot. All I really do is jig along the rock lines, it's some of the easiest bass fishing you can do but I've never really fished through Brockport so I can't say how good it would be around there. I'd recommend registering and posting this same question to bassresource.com. This board's bass section is pretty dead. Bass Resource is way more active and has a lot of people from our area regularly posting. Other than that, get out and explore your new area. That's half the fun.
  10. Finally dumped my boat in this past Sunday, launched at turtle cove which was tricky. Kinda surprised it's still open. Easy enough with my 17' Lund but anyone else with bigger boats probably would wanna launch at LSI or the state launch if it's still open.
  11. lol, yeah, that's how business works, you ARE doing them a favor by buying their product. Jokes aside, I think both Mystery and Lucky kinda suck. I guess they make a decent gift for a fishermen if you buy a 3 month subscription or something but most of the stuff in each box is crap I really wouldn't buy. It's nice to try different stuff, but most of that different stuff for me just ends up sitting in a tackle bag forever.
  12. I'd be more worried about the west barrier/pier buckling and all that damage. Not good!!!!!

    Personal best

    Nice fish, it's tough to surpass even the 5lb mark around here. Congrats!
  14. Did you get out there? How was it? Last time I fished it was a couple weeks ago for a tournament and got a 19.5 lb bag for 4th place. 1st was near 23lb, Tournament lunker was a 5.35 lber. We fished shallow the whole day, as in 10-12ft, sometimes shallower. All fish from 12 boats weighed in were smallmouth. Most guys were fishing deep but if they are shallow I'll always opt for that instead. It was a good testament to the smallie fishing being alive and well despite what plenty of people on this board have claimed.
