  1. Did my first LO trip today. Took only a matter of a few minutes (didn't even get my second rod in water) before I had one on. Ended up getting two salmon and one nice bow-lost that first fish. I think I'll wait till walleye reports get better before making the long trek to Erie.
  2. I was using planer boards with the lead core. Two weeks ago I got three on the same set up. Maybe I should have gone without the lead core and just flat lined. I'm still new to fishing walleye so not really good at knowing where they should be yet.
  3. Went out this morning 7-1pm. Guy at launch said even the charter captains aren't fishing Buffalo area for walleye. I got nadda. Not even a sheepshead. Ran sticks on lead core and drifted harnesses. Did not mark much either. May switch up and start going for salmon in Ontario
  4. Went out yesterday from 6:30am to1pm. Could only manage a sheephead and one perch. Fog was pretty thick in the morning. Very few boats out. It should have told me something. Met a DEC guy back at the launch who measured my one perch and took a fin clip. He told me its been slow for perch lately. Anyway, had perch sandwich for dinner tonight.
  5. This is the response I received from Sunset: We are scheduled to begin the build the first week of April. I’m not sure of your particular usage: If you are looking to reserve a dock space, the season is scheduled to Start May 22 and all reservations, both seasonal and transient, are done online through Reserve America. This link would take you directly to the reservations page: https://newyorkstateparks.reserveamerica.com/marina/sunset-bay-state-marine-park/r/marinaDetails.do?contractCode=NY&parkId=7735 If you are looking for the use of the ramp with the side docks, it will be available as we build. We have put out notices that the ramp is Closed as of April 1 for Mon-Thurs until 3:30 pm each day – open after that time for use each day and all day on Fri-Sat-Sun. The ramp sides are usually the first thing installed as everything else is built off of them. The ramp’s center dock gets installed last. We hope to be clear of the ramp area by April 14. We will still be working on the dock utilities at that point, but there should be no more ramp access restrictions after that date; unless there is a weather event that puts us behind. We will keep both our webpage: https://parks.ny.gov/parks/194/details.aspx and our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SunsetBayStateMarinePark updated with the closure information.
  6. Nice! How was launching on the Catt?
  7. Yes, weatherman blew that one. Was not expecting that much rain but the perch cooperated. Ended up with 36 from 9-13inches. I fished in about 63 feet inside where most other boats were. Wanted to fish some for walleye but started to get too rough and I was soaked by noon. Talked to few guys at the ramp and no one seemed to have any luck with walleye.
  8. looks like they finished Oct 16th according to what I read on internet.
  9. are the tracks still blocked or can we get to the launch? Anybody been out lately for walleye? Thinking of going in a few days. Thanks.
  10. You mean I might be able to tow my boat and go faster than 1/2 mph over the tracks now?
  11. I got skunked. This is my first year fishing Lake Erie but it just seems like you get waves coming at you from every angle. Tough to keep a constant speed. A week ago I took a friend and his father fishing and both got sick. Hope to get out on Lake O once or twice for perch before putting the boat up.
  12. If they don't give anyone refunds then no one is going to rent a slip there even if they do clear out the channel. Has this always been a problem for that launch? Can't see them dredging every year.
  13. Also going out tomorrow. May be my last trip as well.
  14. I went out on Saturday AM and set up in 75ft and got one right away, then took a while to get the second one. The third one got caught up in my rigger wire and took off with my J9 silver and black jointed rapala which is what I caught all three fish on. I then had a "little accident" and cut my finger pretty good on my rigger wire. Thought my day was over but patched myself up. Lucky I had a first aid kit. Caught two more walleye so ended up 4/5, all on jointed rapalas. All fish were caught in about 75ft about 10ft off the bottom going about 1.9 mph. When I got to deeper water marked fish but could not get any to hit. Saw a bunch of boats way deep. When home and bought two more silver and black rapalas. Hard to find them. Most places are out of stock.
