  1. Great report Rick. Thanks for taking time to share with LOU. cheers!
  2. I’m looking at a 1985 Tiara 2700 Continental. Its in average shape and the survey was favorable. Any one ever run this boat and have an opinion to share? thanks for any comments....
  3. Any one know if docks are installed? thanks!
  4. ARMY CORP of Engineers is predicting .3 meters = 11”. Pray for more.
  5. E Manitou. The sea wall construction ends before the ramp. The construction worker I queried said the ramp was not part of the project. I walked the ramp in waders and testify that I could launch my 22’ Grady on it’s tandem axel trailer. cheers!
  6. Best Canvas in Williamson. Igor does great work! 585-967-4328
  7. Point Breeze ramp is good. Plenty of concrete into the water. No docks in yet. Oak Orchard Marine SP ramp good. Park opens April 01?
  8. I spent Tuesday and Wednesday this week doing recon at possible Spring LO launches. Here’s my findings listed East to West. (I walked each ramp in waders and noted the water depth, etc.) Hughes Marina - concrete ramps end at water level with STEEP drop offs after. No go. (Light boat, big truck, OK?) Bear Creek - usable ramp, VERY shallow channel to lake. No Go. (Shallow draft boat OK?) Irondequoit Bay State Launch - Bridge opens April 01. Launch under construction, completion date unknown? No Go. Port of Rochester - ramps go deep into Genessee River, farthest South ramp is best. Go. Braddock Bay - ramps go deep into the bay. Go. Manitou Marina - marina under construction. No Go. Sandy Creek - ramps go deep into creek. No Docks installed yet. Go. Point Breeze - ramps go deep into creek. No docks installed. Go. Oak Orchard Marine St Park - ramps go deep into creek. Docks being installed. Open April 01. Go. Notes: Observations finished Mar. 17. Lake Ontario is projected to rise 11” by April 12. GAME CHANGER! Most docks should be installed April 01? Recon YOUR launch before the trip. Wishing you tight lines! Cap’n Dan
  9. Checked Hughes today, snow pile in front “Deep” launch almost gone. Lake so low, can’t tell if there’s enough concrete ramp in water to float my boat. I’ll bring my waders next time and report.
  10. Looking at the state launch yesterday. Town says job to be completed in “Spring”? Can’t find any updates, looking more like May completion. Any one got some scoop?
  11. Any one fish out of Hughes Marina lately? Any intel would be greatly appreciated.....
  12. Trolled both mornings between Aurora and Levanna. Lines in at 7 and out at 10. Found lots of bait in70-90 FOW. Spoon program W riggers down 60-75’ and boards pulling 5 colors of lead core. 1.7-2.3 on the Fish Hawk was the ticket. Steady pick both mornings. 11 fish in the net Thursday and 14 on Friday. Mostly lakers, a few Silvers, and one football Brown mixed in. All released with the exception of 2 legal salmon and 3 lakers. Beautiful, healthy fish, only one lamprey scar. Tight lines!
  13. Reel Doc thanks for the report. We launched out of Deans Wednesday and fished a circuit to Thirsty Owl and back starting in 35’out to 70FOW. The bite was steady from 07:00 till 10:30. Ran a spoon program, Riggers down 25-30’ and Boards running 3 color LC all produced. Mostly lakers with 4 LL salmon in the mix. 2.0- 2.3 on the Fish Hawk was the ticket. Lots of marks and 2 huge bait balls on the screen. It was a welcome change from the LO skunk we ate the week previous. LOL! Cheers!
  14. Hughes Marina in Pultneyville is open and usable.
  15. Dont give up on boards when the fish are in shallow water. Try rods rigged with 3 or 4 colors leadcore line. The leadcore line will get your presentation down to the strike zone. Good luck!
  16. Launched this AM then found launch barricaded returning this afternoon. Decent bite off Webster Park in 22-35 FOW. Spoons on riggers down 18 ft and 3 colors leadcore off boards did the trick. Green/silver/black colors along W Carmel Dolphin were hot. Pray for sunshine no more rain!!
  17. Any issue with water level at the State launch at Sea Breeze? Any info is appreciated!
  18. We launched there Tues afternoon with no problem. The first ten feet of dock is 5” underwater.
  19. I looked at the launch today and couldn’t determine how long the concrete ramp is. Will my tandem axel trailer drop off the end before the boat floats? 23’ GW on a 26’ trailer. Just need to submerge the fenders, ( 28” of water). Any info is appreciated!
  20. East troll out of I-Bay, lines wet at 07:30. Michigan Stinger pattern Off planer boards W a down rigger in the prop wash. The bite started around Webster Park and continued strong to Ninemile Point. 15-22 FOW produced the best action. Shanster Gold And Sodus Buckeye were hot with Chicken Wing and Fat Nancy taking hits. Boated a mixed bag of brownies and a 18 lb King. Great morning on L.O.
  21. Hoping to do a shake down Saturday out of Hughes Marina. Anyone know if they are open? I called all day without success and their voice mail box is full. Thanks!
