anybody has any hot fishing spots in NY or enitre USA?
no...but here's a list of piers for californiaa: http://www.poi-factory.com/node/5797
anything in NY or in the area?
Bob and Joe rent a row-boat and go fishing. After several hours of hauling ‘em in Joe says to Bob, ‘this is a great spot but how are we gonna remember where we caught all these fish?’
Bob thinks for a moment and says, ‘I know what we’ll do, we’ll put a big X on the floor of the boat to mark the spot so when we come back tomorrow we won’t forget where we caught all these fish!’
Joe thought about it for a while and said, ‘ great idea, but what if we don’t get the same boat!?’
I meant pier locations
anyone any ideas?
If you live in the NYC area go to the METRO AREA PROJECT page and click on the New York, NY heading, once there click on the Brooklyn, NY Attractions heading and load it to your GPSr. Do some exploring and you will find some fishing sites there i.e., the Canarsie Pier, Narrows Sea Wall, 69 St. Pier. You can do the same for Staten Island too - you'll find a spot over there as well.
Now Queens, NY is another story altogether!
Hope this helps!
BTW, when I went to look for that boat with the 'X' it was already gone!
thatnks for the info, and yeah that X boat is not there anymore, LOL
I tried this about a year ago. Had big ideas for it. What I found was that when it comes to fishing hotspots, most fisherman aren't willing to give 'em up.
I thought it was a great idea. It would save fuel, make for better outings, and allow related businesses to advertise near those specific spots.
Much to my chagrin, most of the posts to the yahoo group I started for it went something like this...
"Over my dead body!"
"You'll have to pry it out of my cold, dead, hands!"
I tried for about a year and only ended up with about 12 locations. So, sadly, I gave up.
I agree giving away one's spots is crazy. I belong to a local PA fishing board www.epfr.net it is a great place you can learn a lot. But very few give up their spots. The few who did regretted it soon there after when "their" spots where littered with dead fish, trash and fishing line.
I listed all of the boat ramps I uses in the boat ramp project. There are good spots to fish in all of those places I listed. That is a close as I'll get you . I will not give away exact spot on the river or lake. If I take you there that is one thing. The internet is another to many people.
as I can see those fishermen are GREEDY LOL, I guess there are shortages of fish in the sea, LOL
In some of the areas I fish the fish are few and far between. In the last 24 years of fishing I can find them. If I posted the exact spot where I caught fish they would be gone. We have a problem with people, we call them the bucket brigade, who fish with out licenses and keep every fish they regardless of size and creel limits. There was a small pond, two or three acres, that had some nice fish it it. Someone posted about the fish he caught and the next day he went there were 5 people filling buckets with undersized fish. He called the Fish police but they did not have anyone to send. Two weeks later you could not dynamite fish out of that pond.
That is why we guard our spots.
I agree with the folks who indicated a POI for favorite fishing spots is counter productive. There are plenty of on-line resources that can provide valuable info on fishing locations- what is biting and on what - I keep POIs on various stream locations and holes, but would be hard pressed to share the "holes" info. Anyway the hot spots quickly change.
finding fishing spots will remain a closely guarded secret. You got to know somebody to find a spot and they will only tell you half of the story (usually the wrong half). Great fishing here in Indiana, but I have no idea what or where to catch them
Have had my share of skunked trips,
Come on people fishing locations in NY PA NJ,
there's gotta be a file somewhere for NY tri state area
my old request, somebody help me.. Give me some good locations for fishing, PLEASE
Persistent little bugger arentcha. Won't give you coords but I'll give you some ideas along the western end of Lake Ontario.
Trout/Salmon this time of year - downriggers anywhere between Fort Niagara (Youngstown) and Rochester. Check with local bait shops for depth and tackle. Temperature's the thing.
Trout/Salmon - Spring and Fall - Youngstown, Wilson, Burt Dam, Olcott, 3 Bridges, Rochester (Salmon River) - Tackle - Little Cleos (silver green in spring, silver orange in fall. Either Cast from piers or long line from a boat. About a No. 7 Jointed Rapala also works well for trolling using the same seasonal colors.
Perch Spring Run - Niagara River drifting from Lewiston to Joseph Davis State Park. Tackle - Double Minnow Rig using Minnows and a sinker just heavy enough to bounce bottom. Bring a bucket. You'll need it for the Perch. Note: Run the same drift for Walleye and Muskie using traditional Tackle any time of year. Also the Wilson Short Pier is a good spot for Perch year round.
Smallmouth Bass - Drift about a 16th of a mile above the coast Guard Station past the station to the lake using leaches or artificial shad (Silver/Grey) on an 1/8oz. jig bouncing bottom. Also near the green bouy out in front of the mouth of the river is a good spot. You can anchor there and jig fron the side of the boat or drift. Follow the sand bar.
Largemouth Bass - 12 Mile and 18 Mile Creeks, Tuscarora State Park Bay near boat launch area. Best when the water has lots of algea on top. Cast Plastic Frogs, etc. Flipping jigs also works well in some areas.
These areas are no secret by any means.
Here is one to get you started, plenty of fish in that hole.
This is going to be a tough one considering that NO FISHERMAN ever gives out a fishing spot especially if it is a "HOT SPOT"!
Or a head boat. Either way, you'll be put on fish. But DON'T even think about trying to snag the coordinates by bringing your own GPS without checking with the Captain first. It WILL get Float Tested.
you're talking like 150 miles off coast
come on.. people
...I guess you'll have to keep this thread alive until you get a bite!
Yeah - but who'd eat fish caught in the lower Niagara or Lake Ontario??
OK, I kind of thought this was a good idea too. Apparently from the reaction though, maybe not. I guess it all depends on why you fish in the first place
I like the walleye run in the Maumee River in Toledo from mid-March to late April . . . not so secret, so do a lot of other people. I drive a couple two-three times a season from Fort Wayne since I don't live there any more. Here's the coords of a good place close to several wading options.
N41 32.891 W83 40.776
Hoping it warms up soon! See you out there maybe.
let's revive this subject....
If you all will help me through it, I have many great fishing pois for eastern basin Lake Erie and inland near lake Chataqua. They are currently in magellan format and most require a boat. Lets see if there is enough interest to start this up and I would be willing to add to the data.
Thanks in advance
I would rather have a POI accuratly named "Catching"! I hate just sitting around with my pole in my hand.
The only POIs that I have came from the Fishing Hot Spots Maps. We did go out with a fishing guide in Illinois & Wisconsin that told us to bring a GPS to record. Only problem was our old GPS wasn’t up to the task! Purchased a new one this summer
How about a general area? A body of water may be good fishing you just don't need to give the exact spot on the lake.
As a fisherman I would love to know where the lake or river is and whats biting we can help each other out we just have to leave it up to our fishing skills to find the fishies.
Just a thought
Come to the Bay of Quinte in Ontario, Canada
Every first weekend in May there is a huge fishing Derby here. It always has good fishing throughout the bay and Trent River.
Well, you better lock down all the Droids and IPhones. When I see guys out there 30 miles offshore with their little phones I just ease off the spot about 50 to 100 yards and introduce them to some squirrel fish. After a few moments I will walk out on the fly bridge and ask them if they want to catch some fish, turn over their phones to the deckhand.
