  1. Hard to say when projects like this are run by local govt. Sure we can say yeah they did. But how much money is alloted per year? It's obvious Covid killed any surplus of funds if they had a surplus. Govt in general wastes more money than is in its coffers.
  2. The bodies are my design. It took many trial and error attempts to get a proper weight. Casting the body in all lead or a zing base still makes a heavy lure. Too heavy to fish. So I had to come up with a way to lighten them. That's my secret. The mold also is home made. Part of these lures are of lead some zink. Depends on what I want weight wise. Some of these are also covered with real fish skin I got from fishing which I treat previous to applying to the lure. It's a process I learned from a lure builder from Finland. They're fun to build they fish great and not profitable in this country to sell. Guys here love the 3.00 Chinese crap. My hooks alone cost that per lure.
  3. The Canadian side doesn't get the wave action the US side gets. That marina was there decades. I worked on its last rehab in the 90s. Spent entire summer there. The wall was only project we didn't do. That was Army Corp engineers. From. Day 1 sand attempted to plug that entranceway but back in the day Evans highway dept would keep it clear for the most. As is stands now a dredge and show is the only way to open it with a reasonable depth. What makes this more a safety concern is there is no safe harbor between the Catt and Eastern shore of Buffalo Harbor.
  4. Agree 100%. Yet if this was state run with how this state can not manage funds just how bad would it be? There is no good or easy cure to this mess at S.P. outside of adding a additional wall extending out from the west wall of the harbor which would trap the sand between that wall and the gap area. I took a ride yesterday to look at the mess. Sand is piled over top of the wall left of the gap all the way through east to the shoreline . Outside of a dredge on a barge and scows removing the sand this safe harbor is nothing more than a tax burden to the town of Evans.
  5. What they should do is contact local 17 and discuss having the apprentices once again open the gap. But they really should not haul the sand out but better yet use it to construct a jetty for the equipment to walk out on and use to keep that gap open. If this town can not handle keeping it open then sell it. No excuses
  6. I make my own. 065 propionate face shields cut and bend
  7. Better than Raps. They can do a complete figure 8 when you get the tempo down they're pretty light weight so they kick out pretty far and glide back to rest nose down which resembles a feeding baitfish. Lots of trial and error went into them through the years
  8. Not sure how many years that the fish reproductions are calculated to become a keeper. Such as Walleye or how it works for perch to become a substantial size in lake Erie. I know on most lakes it's based on forage fish. Anyways say it 4 years to make a decient fish in both species we shall see how this plays out for the future. But when fishing is opened again I only hope they dont go back netting at a vengeance. Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  9. After all that has happened with the pandemic. I would hope the hell Charter Capts. would have known better and simply shut down. Although I know people arent smart. I saw a group go out at SBH who for sure were not related and they stuffed 6 in a boat to go for just a cruise.
  10. It goes to show you just what power does to those who run our states
  11. Thanks Wojo. Stay safe. Big blow coming in.
  12. So call me thick. What is considered a state launch? I mean what on Erie is considered a state launch? Sorry if I am thick here
  13. So I just read Gov. Fredo. Just banned launching boats. Making it non essential. I know what I say to this. I'm feeding my family. That is essential Sent from my SM-G955U using Lake Erie United Mobile App
  14. WHen you speak of club are you referring to South Town Walleye? Im not a member but wouldn't mind joining. I sort of agree with the facts that yeah many young kids are not interested in the outdoors. But that to be honest is due to parents who really got little to no interest in it too. I raised my kid from the age of 5 to get himself out in the woods. throughout the winter small game hunting was a mainstay. for us. His passion was waterfowl much like mine. Turkey, rabbit, pheasant or anything we could hunt even good old Chuck hunting was our way of screwing off. As far as fishing goes. hell he got broke in at birth. We had a place on Silver. went weekly to it then of course ice fished it as much as possible. He is on of a select few who loved the outdoors. although we got into a big ass fight we no longer speak which sux I did my best teaching him how to get along in the outdoors. What I will miss is 2 grand sons who who the hell knows if they get to wet a line or not. Most of this generation we didnt show our kids what it would be to survive if needed on nature. its too bad too. Im more than willing to still show others how to do it. I got to laugh at the Bass statement. Everyone wants to be a bass fisherman. LOL Hell Id take Perch any day Northern Pike second then Eyes as far as table fare goes. Crappies fits right in there with panfish but seems they are getting scarce to find at least good keepers Id say. I still put blame on the decline of quality fish due to ice fishing. Too many fish are egg laiden during winter then stripped out well before they had a chance to spawn out. Years ago Im talking the 60s and 70s we ice fished in the open. a light duty wind break a coffee can filled with charcoal for heat and thats it. Now days huts propane heat and a -10 day is still 70 degrees inside the hut. makes it a little to comfortable to sit out on the ice and put a limit of fish in a bucket . Too many big breaders are getting stripped out and no time for recovery on a lake. Hope to catch up with you sometime seems we got a lot in common it could be a good time BSing out on the water
  15. Talked to guy yesterday. Hanover ramps were not in as of yet. Waders are needed to launch. They fished to right of creek 55 to 60fow. Did very well. It was not my cup of tea to take wife out or for my new boat to risk a complete pain in the arse launch risking scaring up the new boat. If you could refresh my memories on Catt creek launch sites and reference to creek location. I surely would appreciate it. Thanks. Oh yeah sitting here waiting for skys to clear a little then heading out somewhere.
