    Yes it is! February 2 we got told. Been crazy. I had accepted a job in Buffalo then decided to stay till they close. So now we have a year maybe 18 months to decide. They are telling us June 2022 we are done.

    What type of work are you looking for or comfortable with?

  2. I will be completely honest with you. Similar to 2lb Perch I raised my family just outside the Fair haven village limits. Had 25 acres on 400 acres of family property. I loved the area , Red Creek school district...not so much but maybe its changed . Either way as much as I love the geography I would get out of New York. Taxes, regulations, fuel prices are all ridiculous and its not going to get better. There are 10 "tax free" states that I would look into if I were in your shoes. As soon as I retire I am out! I am seriously looking at Tennessee , the Chattanooga area I think or maybe Texas. Big decision ahead for you, good luck!

    What does being a republican have to do with fishing. Are we going to bring politics into that too. Sad.


    It is sad that it has to come into it but that is the current situation in which we live. The divide is so great that if you are going to sit and shoot the bull with a complete stranger for 5 or 6 hours in a boat its probably going to come up. There are a LOT of people out there now that have become fanatical about it on both sides so I understand why he wants to get it out there before things go south an hour into what should have been a relaxing day on the water. I would probably do the same in his shoes... Good luck finding a fishing mate or two "Draggin the Line"!

  4. Go to the bay side where the boat launch is. There is like 500' of bay shoreline with good bottom to fish. You can try off the channel pier for browns or even a salmon if you get lucky. By the Bluffs there used to be an old smaller pier that was pretty good to fish off of if its not all busted up by now, just be careful of the waves. The pond channel is OK but its heavily fished. The bay shoreline is your best bet for sure, and you can drive right there and damn near fish out of your vehicle! Have fun and good luck. I lived in Fair Haven for 22 years, great little town.

    I am going to put a vending machine on my rig , making sure it's stocked with breakfast sandwiches,  coffee,  beer , bait and now that pot is legal I am going to have a " special " row of high end stuff so I can maximize my profit while trolling for Kings , which is apparently the secondary reason for going out on Lake Ontario. 

    Send me your charter info!!! :smoke:

    Well BOB, if I had a cell phone I would call him. If I had a land line, I would call him. What would be nice is if you had listen to your mother and followed her advice that if you can't say anything good, then don't say anything at all. A smart remark like yours belongs on Facebook and not here on this site.

    How do people contact you for charters?

    The windfinder app is telling me 7 footers in Fair Haven for Friday afternoon. We're heading out there tomorrow, but don't expect to even have a shot at getting out until after lunch on Saturday.

    Good luck with your effort! Stay safe!

    Opening night is an annual rite for me. Put in at 11:30 on Friday night and start fishing at midnight. Not this year. A forecast showing 37 degrees with snow showers at midnight and dropping to 32 by daybreak isn't good night fishing weather.  Especially on opening weekend which is usually less productive for me than the end of May, early June.

    and windy as hell out of the WNW...not good

  9. I use a Terrova with Ipilot for my 17ft starcraft. Its a 12V system. I power it with the best Gel battery I could find an usually run it to steer the boat while trolling. I have run it almost 6 hours straight and have yet to kill it. I fish alone a ton and it does a hell of a job following way points but wish I had gone with the upgrade to follow contours. I did put the original trolling battery in a battery box with a 4' length of cable and a female connector on the end so if I ever ran low on juice I could just plug right in but I have never needed it so I stopped carrying it . I only bring it on trips for a backup now. I have zero complaints with the system. A heavier boat I would go with a 24v system though as well.
