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.

Mono Collection Bins

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…

Monofilament Collection BIns

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…

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.…

Monofilament Bin Collection

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…

Spending $$

Anybody else out there find that they're not spending a lot of money these days? I opened my wallet today & saw George Washington reaching for a pair of sunglasses. Been so long since he saw daylight!
