  2. I am very disappointed with the Department of Environmental Recreation (formerly known as the Department of Environmental CONSERVATION) for issuing these permits. I used to make about 20 trips a year to Chautauqua from Buffalo, including renting a place on the lake for the Walleye opener. Last year was my last trip for the Walleye opener and I will not be fishing Chautauqua Lake this year. Phosphates may be considered pollution, but it is a fertilizer we use for our food. It is not dangerous to our health, outside of stimulating toxic algae blooms which have only been a minor issue. The DEC and other agencies are taking a pure and healthy lake that has little to no industrial or other chemical pollution and dumping harmful chemicals into the lake and calling it a solution. We are actually regressing in our efforts to protect our natural resources and it is a shame. The lake's biosystem WAS the healthiest I have seen it in 30+ years. I agree that in areas weeds were getting out of control, but there are better ways to address this. The reports showed two main sources of Phosphate load: 1.) farm run-off (contributes to new phosphate load) 2. phosphate load in the sediment (historical accumulations). There was an argument that addressing the farm runoff will not address the issue, since the majority of the phosphate load is in the sediment. This is poor logic since it is years of farm run-off that would have caused the sediment load. You have to stop the bleeding before you can sew up the wound. Once the farm run-off is addressed the weed harvesting will slowly address the sediment load since the weeds will consume the phosphates in the sediment and the nutrients will be removed as part of the weed harvesting. This progress could potentially be expedited through a 5 year dredging program to remove the top layer of sediment containing phosphates in the shallow water where there is weed growth. Our issue is that people do not accept a 5 year plan that maintains the integrity of the lake and puts restriction on farm run-off. Instead they want to pollute a healthy lake in order to have a solution now and not have to restrict farm run-off. Solving the issue of excessive nutrient load by dumping chemicals into the lake is a very unsophisticated and socially irresponsible response. The DEC and Governor Cuomo should be ashamed for agreeing to solve the lakes issue of high phosphate levels with an even more harsh pollutant. The lake is still polluted because we are not removing or reducing the phosphate, but now there are additional and more harsh pollutants we are introducing.

  5. Anybody know of an organization that takes used fishing gear to distribute to needy kids. Looking to get more kids interested in this great past time hobby. Everyone should want to pay it forward, since I won the Spring LOC Derby last year, I feel very lucky and happy to give back.

  7. Hey guys a friend of mine is on the board on directors for NY Muskies Inc Chapter 69 and we have started an online petition to restrict the herbicide use on Chautauqua Lake. This will be sent to the NYS DEC after we get a bunch of signatures. Please share with your group and anybody else you feel would be beneficial.

  8. Hey guys we at NY Muskies Inc Chapter 69 have started an online petition to restrict the herbicide application on Chautauqua Lake. This petition will be submitted to the NYS DEC after we get as many signatures as possible. Please sign this petition and get as many people as possible to also sign. This is very important and effects all fishing around the lake. Thank you https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/save-chautauqua-lake-fisheries.html

  10. In the final part of this series I was about ready to call it a day but decided to try one more shoreline near the ramp. The bass had finally moved into the backwaters and I ran into a ton of em chasing baitfish and my spinnerbait. Hang out and watch a great finish to a day of Lake Erie Bass Fishing
  11. Thanks Frank for the info. I'll definitely look into it.
  12. Back in the late 90’s I had a 15hp Honda that I used on 2 boats. If my memory is right I made a 2nd wire connection with 2 wire plug I found in the “help” section of an auto parts store. Think the part was actually for a GM alternator, but it did adapt to the Honda motor output feed and was way less than OEM.

  14. Greetings from Niagara Falls. Hooked on walleye.
  15. Recently purchased an older 1985? 7.5 Honda outboard with the charging system option, but didn't come with the 2 prong cord. Any suggestions where I might find one would be appreciated. Thanks take a kid fishing.
  16. I have a 38 ft. park model trailer with deck and shed for sale on a nice lot on the shore of Lake Erie. Water and sewer is included with rent , electricity is not. The campground has a boat launch, pool, and pavilion. It is close to fishing: Sturgeon, Evans Bar, Catt, Center Rd. There is even a little tourny that takes place in July that includes a fishfry and party. I am asking $25900/bo.
