  1. It's $10 for seniors FYI only, I know even that is high but I'll spend more in gas to drive farther. I'd be in Barcelona every trip, but that's a long haul from West Falls.
  2. Oh, by the way they are renting slips at Sturgeon again. There were about 12 boats tied up at the slip docks and a bunch of boats in dry dock in the parking lot. I guess the town finally came to their senses. They are not selling bait or ice this year though. Also, don't know if they are giving a discount for opening so late. Launch guy's said call the town for prices.
  3. I started with 3 harnesses and 3 sticks. Got the 1 small 16 incher on harness when we were breaking down for the night. I think it drifted down to the bottom when boat was in neutral as I was running all the gas out of my kicker. I'm thinking if your drifting out near the fish, you could limit out easy bottom bouncing, but I just can't get in to that kind of fishing. I love trolling and always will. I guess it's in my blood from all the countless hours of musky trolling on Chautauqua, with my dad , when I was still a kid. Ace
  4. Fished out of Sturgeon Friday 7/24/21. Went towards Abino point to Canadian line and trolled towards Buffalo in 66 to 63 FOW. Started trolling about 4 PM and stopped at 8:30 Got 4 walleye and 1 giant sheep. Kept 3, released a 16 incher. All fish came on down rigger set at 52 feet down off a shallow stick bait, 40 feet behind ball. Tons of fish on screen, bottom up to 30 feet but it was tough to get to hit. Even tripped sticks off ball and let it float up. They could care less. They ones that hit, hit viscously. Ran 2 big dipsy's, no takers. Ran 1 100 foot copper rig off boards, no hits. Ran a 4 color lead off the other board, pulling a deep diver crank bait, no takers.
  5. I wandered across the line once many years ago, by mistake. I realized it when the boats around me had PA registration's. I had a hand held e trex summit at the time (for hunting) and it gave my position. I quickly got out my charts and plotted my GPS coordinates and sure enough, in Pa. I now have a Navionics chip in my GPS fish finder and it probably has Pa line. I know for sure it has Canadian line, cause I fish near it all the time.
  6. Seems silly to me. Why would you do this unless you r short on number of rods on board. Unless you think the balls r scaring away the fish. I suppose that's possible, but I doubt it. Surely mono or fluoro are less visible than lead. I think I have to call BS on this tactic.
  7. I've brought up moving STWT date into July many times. They just don't want to hear it. It used to be week of July 4th and I loved it and so did most of the guys I fish with. Many more fish around then and even if you don't win a prize, you still win a fish dinner and so does everyone on your boat. I know many many people who would pay the $100 per person to enter and the club would make way more money. But they are stubborn about it, so I don't fish it anymore. The prevailing excuse is there are other tournaments going on in July and we don't want to step on any other club's toes. Then get used to having a smaller entry pool and whine about going broke because of the pay out at every meeting. You can lead a horse to the water, but you can't make them drink.
  8. You could troll there easy cause they are calling for West winds Saturday and Sunday. I've done it many times and the waves will be pushing you all the way. Return trip will probably suck because you will be driving into the waves all the way back. Depends how your boat likes waves on the bow. You won't be doing 30 going back. Also no boats will be allowed inside the break wall at Buffalo, so you will have to anchor up in the lake or drift with the waves. NOAA lake report is not calling for flat lake. If it was I would be trolling next to you.
  9. I just called there. Nobody picks up.
  10. Channel 4 news said it was open yesterday (8th)
  11. I was there yesterday and dredging was going on. They already took out a new mountain of sand. You could have driven a boat thru the new opening easily, but no sign about when opening day is. They had 2 trucks running full time when I was there.
  12. Checked out the new kayak launch site at Hanover launch site May 25, 2021 It's very nice. $3 per boat
  13. News report last night said West Herr was paying for the sand bar removal this year. Didn't say if marina slips were going to open this year or not. Didn't say if sand bar was to be fully removed or half assed removed like last year.
  14. Perhaps Chuck Schumer could throw in a trillion or so. I'm sure our grand children won't mind paying for it. Or maybe he could drop off a few thousand border jumpers with shovels and 5 gallon buckets.
  15. You better have a plug in that auto loader if you shoot a duck and a duck stamp and zero lead shells in your possession.
