  1. As more guys get geared up for the year and start using this site again I want to bump this post to the top. ^^^^
  2. It does in fact work for what it is and I do know bass guys do stage off to the side but I feel like there could be something done. A dock wouldn't block that too much. The biggest issue is the middle part of the days during the summer. Its taken as long as an hour to get back in for us before and it is really unnecessary. Its just a matter of time before a storm or something causes injury because of it because people can't get in in time.
  3. It was beaten up bad by spring and even with a ton of complaints they still put it off forever. That launch during the peak launches 100 boats a day at times bringing in $800 a day in revenue. You'd think the least they could do would be keep it in tact for the folks that use it so boats aren't damaged and its not so hard to launch. Without getting too deep into it I really wanted to start a petition to see about getting them to put in a set of finger docks (or even 1) off to the side by the bathrooms so guys could launch them pull the boat over there while parking truck and warming motor before leaving so the next set could launch. The incoming boats could also drop off a guy go go get truck so pulling boats out was faster too. However seeing how long this took makes me think that'll never happen.
  4. The water level is low but do able for some. However monday-friday or Saturday next week its going to be closed do to them doing some repairs that are long over due
  5. Looks like it will be Nascar weekend this year. We've always done it the same weekend each year and actually have avoided Nascar weekend but it is what it is.
  6. Mark it on your calenders guys and girls. Saturday August 7th this year. More updates to come as well get closer and registration begins.
  7. Had a pond hunt with some buddies last week and we killed 10. Went and hunted tonight with a couple buddies after running the last charter of year. Knew there were only a couple flocks coming in but needed at least a send off to September volley. We killed 6 out of one flock then had another short stop us. Good enough for a last little day quick hunt. 4 hunts so far and have watched 58 birds fall.
  8. Hunted the evening of the openner got there late but managed to kill 12 between 4 of us. Last night my buddy called me on my way home from a miserable windy fishing tournament and said he scored some permission for one night on a spot and we had to go then. 2 of us in an aframe with 8 dozen divebombs. Shot our limit in an hour once they started flying. Absolute barrel burner
  9. Shaneo I agree completely. It just flat out isn't working with what is happening on seneca currently. If they tried stockings of kings or something along those lines that really would eat some bait and also be targets for the lamprey for a few years and take pressure off the other species I truly think that in a couple life cycles of them we would see a big increase in the lake trout population as well as a decrease in the alewife population and it would allow time for the lampricide to take better action as well. Personally I think Seneca is better this year than years past however if we just leave it alone I don't think we'll ever see it become a great fishery again. Atleast not for a longgg time
  10. I would always help a stranded boater however I just think it's ridiculous they won't let you tie off to a boat and drag them across the lake to safety... Seems like a waste of resources to be on the lake burning gas and not doing something worthwhile when it pops up
  11. Im not saying it's right for the guy to drive by. However if there was a coast guard auxiliary vessel with the boat they probably figured it was part of the job to offer tow assistance. What exactly does the ithaca coast guard auxiliary do if they aren't even allowed to tow a boat dead on the water?
  12. Been saying it for awhile. 2 years of king stockings could give us fish for a few years and help the bait issue alot!
  13. Thanks Mike! I wanted to be sure that we have record of this down the road!
  14. Final count is 145 entrants! Payout will be as follows! 1st place- $1820 2nd place-$1080 3rd place- $725 Lunker- $725 See you all tomorrow and good luck!
  15. Can confirm! 50-30-20 of $25 a person and $5 per man goes towards lunker.
  16. No count on entrants until Friday but I'm predicting near 100. Give me a second on the payout percentage. Bout 90percent sure they had figured 50-30-20 but I'll have to double check
  17. We try to do it the same weekend every year to avoid the Watkins Glen race weekend. Obviously that isn't an issue this year but by all means set it aside!
