Good morning, it is Saturday June 25th and what a great weekend to get out there and do some free fishing. Itís FREE FISHING weekend anywhere in New York State today and tomorrow Ė so find someone who doesnít have a license and get them out there. The annual Kids Fishing Derby is today from 8am to 12 pm. Bring those kiddies down and win some great prizes like a drone and remote control helicopter and robo fish (those are some of the cool prizes we donated ) .
Lake fishing is still really good . They are starting to make that trip offshore, but everyone is catching fish. Most are heading out to 300 to 450 now.
A boat explosion yesterday morning in the Newfane marina rocked Olcott yesterday. A 50 year old man from Pennsylvania had to be mercy flighted to ECMC after an accident while pumping gas. It is one of the campers from the Harbor here in town. The name isnít being made public yet . He was a passenger on the boat and I have no news of his status. Letís all pray he will be well and heal fast. It is one beautiful weekend otherwise. Have a great day.
Good Morning, it is Sunday, June 19th and Happy Fatherís Day to everyone. Fishing has been phenomenal here on the west end between Olcott and Wilson. Itís like spring hit late and they are catching major kings out here right now. Most thought the fish were on their way offshore, but that isnít true. They are right here in 50 to 80 fow has been good and even better is that 300 to 400 area.
Blue and green spoons have been doing great this week and good old Dreamweaver monkey pukes are a sought after item with that gold and green color on them. Cut bait is still very hot, specifically N & D Pacific herring strips. Makes sense since chinook are from the Pacific ocean to use bait that smells like home.
There arenít a lot of people out fishing in June, but the ones that are, they are having a great time. Have a great day.
