Captain's LogWhen I was born, my father was in the marina business, which meant working 7 days a week during the summer. So when my mother was sick & tired of me and it was my fathers turn to watch me, it usually meant going to work with him. Since he was very busy, I frequently found myself tied to the end of a dock and left with a fishing pole & some bait. Although I realize many liberals and slick lawyers would label this as child abuse nowadays, I can't say I minded! Ever since, my love for fishing and the outdoors has remained strong.
I will use this page to bring you fishing reports, update you on upcoming events, and inform you on issues important to our fishery. Also watch for pictures & reports on our latest fishing trips!
I will apologize to everyone in advance, when we get to busy times in our fishing schedule, I know the web site won't be as up to date as we would all like.

Cormorant's may be on the run!
New York congressmen John McHugh will testify on cormorant overpopulation before the House
Resources Subcommittee on Fisheries Conservation.
McHugh has introduced a bill that would establish a cormorant hunting season to control the bird that is "wreaking havoc all across this nation" he said.
All I can tell you from personal observations is that for a number of years the cormorant population seemed to grow & grow, with a large number taking up residence on the Oswego harbor breakwalls on a daily basis. Last year after a few took the law into their own hands and shot a small percentage of the birds, there was a noticable difference in cormorant sightings. Not only was their population down slightly, but they obviously no longer felt comfortable flying & feeding to close to humans. This year with no one bothering them, they have been back with a vengeance. Many times this spring we were trolling within 50 yards of huge flocks of the birds!
Like everything in nature cormorants serve a purpose and should not be eliminated. However their numbers should not be allowed to get out of control either.
