    Recommended Drift sock

    Have you considered using a trolling plate? Drift bags are great for jiggin or helping to counteract the affects of the wind but they may not be your best choice for controlling your forward speed.

    Parkway construction

    I heard they were coming westward and would stop at the Orleans county line. Sure would be nice if they went all the way. Just hearsay no real source.

    Downrigger wiring question

    We run 4 down riggers wired into regular a/c outlet boxes. Put a two prong plug on each downrigger. Not only does it allow quick disconnect but each time you plug or unplug them it helps strip off some oxidation/corrosion.

    Pt Breeze Boat Lauches 3/23/18

    Yes, sorry for the confusion, I should have said rt.18 since rt.98 ends just south of it.

    No. It’s the big bridge on route 18

    Stop at any state park office and show your empire pass. They will give you a card to leave on your dash so the parking officials won’t write you a citation for not paying. Permit card is good for the life of your pass.
  12. Stopped by the Lakeside Beach State Park office to get my new “Dashboard” Parking Permit for the 2018 Empire Pass. They are Green this year. The Superintendent indicated that, lake levels permitting, they are going to try to open the State Boat Launch on Monday April 2, 2018. He noted that existing projects and manpower shortages may delay the opening until April 4, 2018. Travelers should be aware, if they are not already, that the bridge over Oak Orchard Creek (Rt.18) closed Monday the 19th of March. Projections are that it would be down about 4 weeks. Travelers approaching the State launch from the West should not plan on using route 98. Route 18 from the west would be fine or, if you’re a local, you might use the Oak Orchard River Rd, via the Waterport Bridge on route 279 or the Eagle Harbor-Waterport Rd.. Changes have been made to the Parkway to permit West bound traffic to exit onto Route 18 west of the Archibald road which leads to the boat launch. The folks at the Orleans County office of Tourism say that the county launch by the Black North at Pt. Breeze will open April 15, 2018. Now if it will only warm up a little, there are a few things I need to do to the boat. - Rob

    Lake temp data updated - 1997 - present

    Probably as good a forecast as we could hope for. We'd like the Kings to grow to size but be hungry enough to hit. If I had to choose i'd opt for lots of smaller ones than a few big ones.

    Kind of you to think of others. Great resolution from your camera. Thanx for taking the time to do this.

    Sea sick

    Always good to have a macho man aboard but if you fish the derby you may want to double check the rules. I’m not sure where they stand on chumming the waters.
