Dropshotting for bass: [Lake Erie] Capt. Jim Hanley sends word that just prior to the
Labor Day weekend and the nasty weather he had experienced some of his best
fishing of the year around Sturgeon Point, Myers Reef and Seneca Shoal. You
could catch all the 14-15-inch smallmouth bass you wanted in 25 feet of water
or you could slide out a bit deeper – out to 45 feet – to catch some bigger
fish up to 5 pounds, six ounce for him. He had back to back days of 120 bass
coming to the boat. Top bait was crayfish and Gulp green worms fished on a drop
shot rig. « Go to Link

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 13 2009 - We must preface this report with some sad
news. One of the local giants in the sportfishing
industry passed away this week. Capt. Doug Stein of Grand Island, a charter captain and guide
for many years, died after a valiant bout with cancer. Doug was the president
of the Niagara River Anglers Assn. for nearly a decade, with one of his big
initiatives being the first pen rearing project for salmon in the county. He
was one of those guys willing to go out on a limb to support what he believed
in and always willing to help when work needed to be accomplished to help the
sportfishery along. He was a big man with an even
bigger heart and I’m proud to say that he was a friend of mine. We fished,
hunted and shot together and he will be sorely missed by many. Bill Hilts
