Very good advise. I know of one dock also that floated away from the same area I will be starting out a little later than past because of this and visibility is key.

Guys,and gals. I was out on Chaumont bay today. I gotta tell ya, be careful out there. There is so much crap floating, bobbing and suspended out there it is scary. I backed the throttle all way off and idled around. I know everyone is excited to chase eyes, but this high water is floating everything off the shores, and the variable winds are taking it every which way. I saw a METAL pipe sticking out of the water today where it shouldn't be. I saw a tire bobbing around. I saw a log big enough to take your lower unit off if you were on plane. The guy pumping gas into to my boat spoke about complaints of a dock floating free. This opener will see some stranded boaters if we are not careful out there. Be careful out there this weekend.

Guess that gives a new meaning to combat fishing. :)

 

I am sure some where around Chaumont is about where I will be headed.  Just need to drive there first.

Erie is brown. Might go to some of my ditch mouth spots on Oneida or Chataqua and night cast.

The unthinkable....I might just sit this one out. Opening night has always been more of an annual rite than a particularly good night of fishing for me anyways. Usually around the last week of May and the first week of June is when I-Bay starts to turn on for me anyways. I think I'll enjoy the warmth of a fire, stay home with the Mrs and then proceed to ditch her in the pursuit of ol' marble eyes for all the weekends in June.

You planning on making it up this weekend? Shouldn't have an issue launching at Bob's maybe have a tough time getting to the water without sinking out of sight.

Weather looks like I will be heading to the farm to do some gobbler hunting now instead.  I wanted to hit a river spot or two but the weather pattern doesn't support this venture anymore.  Good luck to you guys that go out this weekend.  It may be the first first-Saturday in May in a long time that my wife gets to see me for more than a few minutes here and there.

I wonder what the conditions on the river will be with all the water coming out of the lake?

Not the opener weather we have had in the past, bad year for a new green crew, I am hoping they don't turn green.

I'm hearing it's too wet.  I'll just use the parks ramp.  And yes I'll be there soon.

Yeah Devo. My personal best from I-Bay came on opening night 2 years ago. It was the only fish I got that night though. I'm having second thoughts about staying home. Fifty degrees and light rain forecast. I can handle that from for a few hours in the darkness. Should I look for you out there or are you a daytime fisher?

I love night fishing but the older I get, the harder it is to stay up that late! We get them during the day too so we'll be out Saturday morning pulling planer boards and cranks.

Good Luck!

Yeah...I hear ya. Staying up late isn't the problem for me. It's getting back to feeling normal after the sleep depravation. Good luck to yourself as well.

There is sooo much debris out there in BRB right now it's not even funny. I wouldn't even get on a plane cause there were logs everywhere today. It's was ridiculous. I was planning some night fishing this weekend opener and there's no way without adding head beams to my boat. Be careful out there on the east end.

HA, HA, Justin the best eye fishing I ever had in NY. It was 2-3fters, I had a old puke yellow/orange tri-haul, snowing like hell and the eyes were on fire, we needed 1 more for a 3 man ticket when were approached by the U.S. Coast Guard making sure we were all right, they asked if we were catching, and we showed them our catch they were in awe, then they asked if that one more fish was worth it to us, we replied absolutely!! OK fella's just be carefull but I would suggest you wrap it up, with the bildge running and water coming out the hose full time now with waves coming over the bow, we took their advice. We'll catch that one more tomorrow!! Yea right we struggled the rest of the time, later in the week we got our 1 more. That was years ago, I just saw the pics, while I was looking for my circle hooks to make up harnesses. Best of luck to all tomorrow, I'll be on the water come Monday!! PAP!

Well unfortunately my crew all bailed on me for this weekend, looks like I won't be up for the opener. It will be the first one I miss in close to 10 years. A little sad about the whole deal but with the crap weather I'm not really too upset. O well, I'll have to hit it in a couple weeks.
