Larry/Zach- just heard from toothie. He got in touch with the director today and has all the details, instructions and materials etc on the way; so we are covered. He and I are going to get together once it arrives and review and put together an agenda so that we're not scrambling at the next meeting.

how will 69th chapter NY muskies inc. help our fishery? i love the thought of helping this fishery but its not realy sounding like our state gives a care about muskies. other than chautauqua, the NYDEC pretty much just slap strict regulations on the very areah specific fishery and let the rest slide. how does this help? the member dues go into the conservation fund or what? the dec wont just let us purchase fry, raise and release them untill expensive studies are completed, is this true? where would the first areah of interest be to introduce the species or to built up an already existing population?

This will give us a stronger voice to work with.The more of us the dec hears from the better.They will then know that many ny anglers have a great interest in muskies and muskie fishing thus giving us a better chance of maybe getting some things accomplished here in ny whether it be more stocked waters,better regulations or habitat improvements.Our foundation will be stronger as a group instead of as an individual.

Larry I believe we are planning to stay with Dicks for one more meeting before finding a more permanent home, though I've not heard if we have confirmation on the room. Anyone know?

Ok talked to Dicks today. apparently the ole bystander effect took hold and no one actually booked the room with them. Fortunately its free and we are all set for this evening: 7 PM Dicks Sporting Goods, Marketplace Mall Henrietta. If someone gets there before me, Donna or Chris are our contact folks at the store.

In meeting with Jim Reynolds last eve, some folks have already sussed out some potential options for a permanent location for our meetings, so one agenda item will be to vote on where we set home base for the standing monthly meeting going forward.

See you all in a bit...

Mike,As Conservation Director I would suggest that you ask Chuck Battaglia Lakes Manager, Cassadaga Lakes Association to be a Liason for Chautauqua Lake & Cassadaga Lake Area to help you with issues concerning Prendergast Hatchery and NY PureBred Stocking Program.Chuck has a wealth of knowledge in this area and is connected with everyone in the NY DEC Region 9.

Congrads on becoming the NY Muskies Inc Chapter Conservation Director!

Capt. Larry

Glad to hear you guys have formed a chapter up there. I have talked to a friend or two who are considering transferring membership from Three Rivers to your chapter. Mainly the ones who have an interest in fishing Chautauqua.

I haven't been an M.I. member for oh... years. (can't remember) I thought I'd take a minute and share some of the struggles you are sure to encouner when trying to make improvements to your home state through MI. Mainly money. I see that you have an interest in changing some regulations/size limits. That is a realistic goal and the idea that being a part of a larger organization to gain respect of your DCNR is smart thinking. But when it comes to stocking that's a different story. Raising or buying muskies, ideally fingerlings, is expensive. I'm sure they guys who communicate with the Prendergast hatchery will tell you that. The point is that MI will gain you some political clout if you hammer away at it... but you'll have to raise money on your own if you need it. It was a blast forming what turned out to be the biggest chapter in MI with more releases than any other. Our ladies were crushing the women's division and our juniors were making us proud. But it was frustrating at times when we had over 250 members and were mailing them nearly 10K a year.... but could barely afford to mail out a newsletter..... and the fine folks out west were cutting back magazine issues and talks of bankruptcy were swirling around. MI still has big money/tax issues FYI.

So use your club to unify muskie fishermen as well as attract new ones so you can afford to make real progress where you feel you need to. Don't expect anything from International and you won't be disappointed. Know that only your hard work & your money will help your local waters. Put someone in charge of fundraising and give it hell.

I'm a huge fan of Chautauqua and if it looks like you put a 1st class chapter together I may just be motivated to rejoin MI. Best of luck to you!!! I'll be watching. :beer:
