  1. Small trailer boat owners are ignored by the movers and shakers in NY state. Not even enough ramps and parking spots for small boat owners. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  2. The deeper water will serve sail boaters or cabin cruisers. There are a lot of boaters that have no interest in hook and line fishing. Just family and friends cruising. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  3. Look at places like Miami Beach and see what the Marinas and harbor docks did to attract developers and homes. We could do the same here with all the open lakefront we have. What we do not have our leaders to get the ball rolling Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  4. Long lining not working, use side planers . Head of the rlver working good towards evening. Commercial Charter boat fishermen fish more lines to locate schools and fuel costs are shared amongst larger groups. The small boat guys can not compete against the larger operations so they fade away from membership in the club. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  5. When changing the contest dates was brought up, an old timer said "it is traditional" so do not change it. Bring up the changing of the dates, now it may pass. Better yet take charge of the tournament next year, you can do it then.
  6. When you are not marking fish on the bottom, they are are near the surface. Your boat spooks them away and your side planers move your shallow stick baits out to where the fish moved from your boat. When the surface temperature rises above 65 degrees they will bring them deeper. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  7. Seattle to Whittier or Seward now. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  8. California off shore wind farm coming to generate hydrogen for truck fuel and oxygen for health care and steel mills. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  9. Washington waived the Jones Act for Alaska. Several lines plan on starting up service. Direct from Seattle to Alaska. No Canadian stops. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  10. Union Concrete Excavator working now at the sandbar. Maybe this weekend? Sent from my iPhone using Lake Erie United
  11. Coast Guard inspections this season feature Flares and pistol cartridge expiration dates. Engine kill switch connected to the driver. Life jackets, fire extinguishers, documentation, throwable device with attached line, and more. Realize their is radar at Sturgeon Point and Westfield covering boats traveling on our Lake Erie area,
  12. Good but why has it taken so long? The Town is dysfunctional at operating the marina and only lately responded this late of the season. Another boat access site should be constructed at Woodlawn Beach State Park where boating occurred for many years till the Town of Hamburg officials closed public access years ago.
  13. According to Ch 4 news TV, US Senator Schumer will see if the US Army Corps of Engineers can dredge the sand out of the entrance. All now after the marina was closed up last August. No report on NY Senators and Assembly. No report from Erie County officials.
  14. It would be proper if New York State officials would be there to report on boat registrations for the Town of Evans. The loss of revenues from dock leases, launch passes and use by Town residents that use the boating access of the marina. The job losses of Town Employees that operate the Marina. The Marina adds a lot of quality of life to live in the Town of Evans. The highway trucks and Gradall could easily be used to maintain the Launch Channel. This problems are many parts of town employees getting involved for the Marina operations.
  15. Between Wanakah and Eighteen Mile Creek. Shale bottom till Mud bottom about 55 foot. Meyers Reef is off the Low Banks between the high cliffs. Good perch and walleyes as well as bass here now. A seven pound bass was taken there Saturday.
  16. The Diversity Town Supervisor in office now wants boaters to stay home and cut the grass and paint.
  17. Good perch catches of perch from Buffalo Harbor launches are coming in. One boat landed 58 jumbo perch off the Highland Cliffs. Historically spring catches of perch last July 1st. You do not have a one hour plus round trip drive to the Catt ramps to load up on perch now.
  18. The Town of Evans Supervisor will hold a public hearing on the Sturgeon Point Marina sand bar. Since access there was blocked off last August again keeping a meeting delayed till April 21 is as big an obstruction as the sand bar. Why waste our time since her inaction will delay any action probably till the Lake freezes over.
  19. It is nice to see the perch boxes with ice in them. Commercial Perch and Walleye fishing boats ice their fish immediately after boating the fish for health regulations. Iced down fish can be held over night to processing the next day.
  20. Yesterday the same equipment from Union Concrete Contractors was operating at the Hamburg Town Park Ramp. Last year the Operating Engineers Apprentice Program supplied the Operators as their training program. The use of the ramp is restricted to Town Residents due to a deed restriction on the property uses,
  21. Perch and walleye spawn at 42 to 48 degree water temperatures near the shoreline. The bass spawn at 50 degree water temperatures, New York record bass and walleye weights are available now. After spawning they lose pounds of weight.
  22. With the Niagara River water temperature at72F. the smelt are reported running good at Lewiston. The emerald shiners are reported schooled up heavy below the Black Rock Lock. Package small bags up with salt and freeze them to keep them bright and Shiny for the perch catches as seen above now.
  23. There seems to be a dysfunctional crisis with trailer boaters and dock user holders. Maybe that is why no real progress happens.
  24. Imagine the costs for repairs here. In the lakes it will be so high tax credits will be needed to pay for it.
