Images

Keep in mind that I am always looking for images for our newsletter; fish, sunsets, sunrises, other anglers fishing, equipment, anything fishing related. I can use them all.  Large, unedited images are best. Thanks.

Larry sent me a couple of pics of SBH launch ramp. Apparently, the ramps were plowed closed because of ice on the ramp. The other pic is of a 20+" drift. Thx, LarrySee More

NO TELEMETRY TAGGING FOR THE WITTEK

The DEC cancelled their plan to implant the last two transmitters during the Wittek. This DOES NOT affect any plans for the Wittek. If you catch a musky in the Harbor no need to call for the DEC boat but you might still want to call Scott with the measurement, if it's a winner.There is supposed to be a small craft advisory for the lake tomorrow so it could make transferring a musky from a boater's net to the surgical ship dicey, if not dangerous, so they'll have to wait for the spring.I was at…See More

Here's the Near Shore Marine Forecast out of Dunkirk. Good thing the Wittek is in the Upper Niagara: The 24 ft waves make for a good walleye drift

Thanks John, I'll be sure to try and make the party. The profile picture Musky? I'd figure maybe very low 40, the picture is just a generous angle.

I have a lot to learn, and hope to from this group.  Mostly I'll just shutup and listen.

JJ - bug prolly looks familiar from the OOFS site. The answer is NO I've not FF'd for musky on the fly before, well I did once earlier this summer and after that I started investigating more and found NMA. I had to expand my opportunities beyond the local streams which as you know have been horrible all summer long. I was ready for a new challenge and it looks like I have it here.  Thanks for the note.

Guys - sorry for the delayed response.  ALl the NMA emails were going to my junk box.  Problem solved!  I look forward to hooking up with you all in the future.
