  1. It may take years for them to start work. The letter states it has to compete against other projects with the limited funds available. If we're lucky it will start this fall, but don't hold your breath.
  2. You can catch smallies consistently in Lake Ontario if you fish structure. The best spots are the water pipes. Look on a map to find the general location, use side imaging to pinpoint the pipes and fish them with drop shots and those small dropshot plastics. Right now where I fish they have been in 12 to 14 feet of water.
  3. Does an orange flag work for the daytime?
  4. Also check out the Scotty Striker rod holders. They use the same base as the regular Scotty rod holders but I believe they are stronger.
  5. I would throw a spinnerbait or jerkbait to target bass or the monster pike that inhabit Oak Orchard. Funnny I caught a gar trolling a thunderstik at nite fishing for walleyes on the lower part of the Oak.
  6. Port Bay on East side narrows had 8 inches of clear ice followed with 3 inches of white ice on top over 20 feet of water. No issues where I was and the drag from the South boat launch was a breeze. Saw 3 or 4 machines on the ice. For every 4 or 5 dinks you had 1 keeper.
  7. If you have a lifetime license you can go to the DMV and they will put a symbol which indicates it when you renew your drivers license.
  8. If you looked at the picture the kayak had to be registered with the DMV because of the trolling motor. I'm currently looking at Hobie but they do weigh a lot. I would check out Oak Orchard Paddlesports at all the different kayaks they have.
  9. Victor Bass Pro Does anyone know when the Victor Bass Pro is suppose to open?
  10. It's sad that the people in charge of the association are going ahead with the fire works.
  11. The Port Bay Improvement Association has just reported that the Northern launch is open at Port Bay. That launch is right next to the lake.
  12. Any of the bays along Lake Ontario this summer may offer very unique bass fishing since all the docks are under water. During normal water levels, its hard to beat Sodus because the bay has a lot of different structure.
  13. I guess they need to proofread their web page.
  14. Wayne County Office of Tourism states on their fishing report which was updated this morning that both of the DEC launches on Port Bay are open contrary to what has been reported here recently. Can anyone verify that they forgot to put the word "not" in front of open.
  15. What about Pier 1 or whatever its called now? I could park the trailer in front of my cottage.
  16. What about Pier 1 or whatever they call it now?
  17. Thanks. It's too bad. The North Launch has easy access to the lake. The south launch is quite a distance at idle speed.
  18. Port Bay North launch Is the North Launch at Port Bay still usable? Any issues with the access road underwater or being destroyed by waves?
  19. There are conflicting reports on if it's truly the end of Gander Mountain. The new boss seems to be contradicting what is actually being said by Gander Mountain. It sort of sounds like our Federal Government.
  20. Does East Bay and Blind Sofia even have their channels dredged?
  21. For emergencies is the range greater than several miles since the coast guard has antennaes that are maybe 50 feet high?
  22. I drove down yesterday to check height of the water and was amazed that the wooden docks were not there. Are planning in putting in the new floating docks? I would also not be surprised if the state puts in a ticket machine for parking because they are the state (money grabbers).
  23. What size rapalas for spring bowns I have a lot of thindersticks and jr thundersticks, but if I was to switch to original floating rapalas, then what size is appropriate for spring browns? Also are the thundersticks and jr thundersticks too big?
  24. I updated my electronics last year fromLowrance units that are now 10 years old to Garmin 73 and 93 Echomaps. I used the Garmin units right out of the box with very little learning curve.One unit is on the bow and the other is at the helm. I do run mine split screen. They are also able to run panoptix, but the price for that feature is steep. To answer your question is what is on your dreamlist for featues: Is it side imiging, better maps, ability to create your own maps, larger screen, down imiging? If those features you want (Garmin Echomaps are not touch screen) then get a new unit. I still use my lowrance ice fishing
