Whenever/wherever we have our next face-to-face meeting please bring in any monofilament you've collected from your bin(s). i'll be at the next meeting.
Take note of the round-trip mileage & about the number of minutes you spent traveling, walking & emptying the bin & jot it down somewhere. Time & mileage are considered one of the matching funds. Measure it once & it'll be the same from month to month.
If you're re-spooling any reels this year, next year or…Read More

For a project that took the last year off, it got off to a good start. Out of the 12 locations that they're installed, only one isn't assigned (so far). That's the one at the bottom of Devil's Hole, 400 steps going down, 4,000 coming up. The BNW is emptying that for now but it might move to the top. Additionally, if we see or hear of any suggestions, we're open to all of them.
Below is a video of emptying a bin. It's for guidance only & nothing says it has to be done that way. Use…Read More

If you planned on using the launch at SBH for the musky opener, forget about it. NYS Office of Parks & Recreation will close the launch from dusk on Thursday the 17th & reopen Sunday the 20th after 4:00 p.m.
Any questions about SBH contact A. Berti at the number listed at the top of the release.
I have no idea if the waterway at Bflo Harbor or the Upper Niagara will even be open to boaters. Those bodies of water aren't part of the NYS Parks system.…Read More
The BN Waterkeepers have been emptying the mono collection bins that we built & have collected over 2 lbs of mono. It doesn't seem like a lot but 2# really is.
We'd like to get back on track but it might take a couple of months to get it running smoothly. Below is a pic of the sites in which the bins are installed.
Pick a site or 2…Read More

This article talks about big winds stirring up Lake Erie and affecting the Western Basin,causing oxygen and phosphorus problems but I wonder about the eastern end and the Niagara River when the big SE winds happen.

I’ve admittedly fallen of the wagon when it comes to reporting. Doing the tagging study was initially exciting years ago, but I found I dreaded recording the data after a catch. Just wanted to get right back at it.
I didn’t report a single release this year, and it was one of my best years. 49.5 jigging, 48 jigging, a 48 casting. Would have loved a hat; but it taught me a valuable lesson.
My “new season,” resolution is to contribute to the goldmine of data that is held by Mr.…Read More
A buddy of mine texted me to shore fish for steelhead today at Artpark. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get out of work early, but I was leaving the office he texted me again....
Right before sunset, he thought he was snagged but started to feel violent head shakes. Turns out it was a musky! The crazy thing is he was using a spey rod and a fly. Since he was by himself, he didn't get a measurement. But it still was a once in a lifetime occurrence.…Read More
