I live about fifteen miles north of Rochester and also work in Roch.I really haven't seen many flocks flying yet. Usually when they start up it's very noticable.I work about a half of a mile from the north line, and I don't even think the guide services have started bringing people out yet.

Not much for birds here yet......most of the crop is still standing......give it another two weeks and it should be good about anywhere around here

The beans just went off "Hamburger Hill" this weekend... hunted today for the first time.... successfully I might add. Things usually kick in pretty good by mid to late October.

Just took a look out the back door from work and I hear the honk honk honk in the sky. They're starting to fly now. I saw a couple of small flocks going out over 55th street. I don't know--is Hamburger Hill the area by 55th street and 18th ave. Because thats the way they were flying.

Quite a few geese staging on the SW side of Roch. Although most of them are refuge bound, there were a handful of flocks breaking the line and working out towards the Salem Corners area (yesterday).

Geese are starting to roll in pretty good the last few days. It actually may turn out to be a dang good weekend if you can find a picked field!! The birds ain't too smart right now!

Reports from H.HIll have been outstanding the last 3 mornings.

GOOD LUCK!!!

"Hamburger Hill" is a field located NE of the intersection of 18th Av and 55th St. It used to be known as simply "The North Field," but the success rate has been so intense over the last few years that the guys (we call ourselves "goosegrinders") started referring to it as Hamburger Hill! I know, I know, it's sorta krewl and all... but boys will be boys!

JA!

It doesn't have anything to do with the fact that McDonalds is so close they can deliver food to you in your pit? wink.gif

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.
