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.
I've barely fished the river but between cullen and myself we have 15-20 fish to add to those totals including a couple ddinks. I've also pulled baits away from small fish already this season. Lots of mid 30s fish around right now, the ones that were Mia last summer.
Tony...thanks much for the info update and I completely agree with you on the sub-30's fish. It is concerning & I, personally, like to see small fish caught (& properly released) for any species. At least then, we know the fishery is healthy. Has the fishery in the past been cyclic with up's & down's as with other species (take perch five years ago vs. now) or has there been a steady decline? I know the sampling done by the DEC has shown a steady decline in YOY...
Tony...it looks like there are a lot of muskies in the 30" range caught (or lost) so far this month. How does that compare statistically to this time last year? Is it typical? Does it indicate a healthier fishery than last year? Is it too early to tell?
