    If they are going to enforce this ridiculous no fishing the docks rule, why don't they start enforcing the ramp rules. Specifically the boat prep area and the launch-retrieve ramps. There is now a designated boat prep area with ample signage, yet you still have people using the top of the ramp for this purpose. Then you have people using the launch dock to retrieve their boat. Not a big problem when it's not busy, but weekends are another story. I had an incident this past summer related to this. Since I'm retired I normally don't do weekends, but my kids don't have that same luxury, so off we went. Got to the prep area and got the boat ready. Proceeded to the launch ramp and backed up to where a boat and two gents were standing. Each launch ramp had the same situation. Now in my mind I believed that they were waiting for the person that parked their vehicle and trailer. Well, within a minute or two, a truck and empty trailer was standing in front of me. It was then I realized what was going on. He tooted his horn to get my attention so I tooted back and waved. So he gets out of his truck and says he needs to retrieve his boat. I proceeded to tell him that this is a launch ramp and "I ain't moving". I decided to take this stand because this is not the first time I've seen this happen. I've complained in the past to marina personnel but nothing ever changed. So after about fifteen minutes they convince this guy to use the retrieve ramp. So I get my boat in the water, park my truck and trailer, and head to the dock. I'm met there by a Manager who went on tell me that we all need to civil. I was civil throughout this whole incident which was not the case for the other party, hurling f-bombs and other obscentities, all this in front of my kids and grandson. To sum it up, enforce all rules equally.

    His 2 million dollars have bought him the rights to operate the marina. The boating season is over for the year. His docks are encroaching on the ability of shore fisherman to pursue their sport. The state should step in and require that the docks be pulled when the bating season is over. Keith Pease is nothing but a manager for Safe Harbor Development LLC. Safe Harbor paid a lot of money for the rights to operate the marina. Those rights should not infringe on the people who pay taxes to support the State Park system. Pull the damn docks and let the shore fisherman enjoy what we used to have......nuff said. Check out Safe Harbor website..... http://safeharbormarinas.com/about/ big business at its finest.

    People have been fishing the docks for a few weeks now with no problems. I've fished there myself the past two weeks with no problems. I don't know what changed but Jim you are right. Those docks are an impediment to shore fisherman. They have taken away a considerable amount of water area for fishing. This is after all a State Park that our tax dollars support. His docks are his property but the water that they float on are the property of us tax paying citizens and encroach on our ability to fish productive areas. The State Park system needs to get involved to protect our rights........Standing by for more of the story.

    Walleye Done for the year?

    Drop shot is the way to go. More sensitivity for those light biters.

    Nice catch....bonus walleye to boot. I'm assuming minnows for bait.
  6. I've said this before, Sturgeon Point should become New York's next state park. It would free up some much needed cash for the Town of Evans.

    Sunset Bay Shootout 2018

    That's a shame. I've always thought of Don as an upstanding individual. I wonder what the future of the Shootout will be.

    Sturgeon Point 2018

    Took six fish today 10 miles out of Buffalo. 57 FOW close to the line. First line in at 11:38. Last fish boated at 1:28. Renosky purple pink frog on dipsies set at 3 and 110 feet back took five. Rianbow leopard off the rigger took one 35 feet down. Marked fish from 30' to the bottom. Wish this weather pattern wasn't changing. Gonna shake that lake up for a few days.

    Like LOU much better then LEU

    Jim, I agree with what you are saying, but if you look at Myfishfinder.com you'll see people from these areas don't report. Especially Ohio. Tight lipped buggers there. We've got a good thing goin' here IMHO.
  14. They could also have had the signs specifying the boat prep area in seven different languages. Some people just don't care. How about the guy who pulls his boat out of the water and stops a the top of the ramp to pull his gear. pull the plug, and apply his straps. Can't fix stupidity or ignorance. So to answer your question about protocol.........there is none.

    Mike M, when you open a forum there is an option you can choose to sort the way the thread opens. For example, go to Open Lake Discussion, on the header that lists the number of pages look to the right and you will see sort by. Click on that and choose the way you want the thread to open. Hope this helps. This site is a great site but has far fewer members than LOU and is much younger.
