Questions on Minnewaska

Recommended Posts

1. Where is the weigh in going to take place? It looks like the State Park is about 3 miles from the lake so we wouldn't be able to do it there.

2. I wasn't sure that I'd be able to make it so I didn't make reservations and now the campground is full. Does anyone know of any other campgrounds in the area?

3. When are we going to start on Saturday (11, or 12?) I will be arriving Saturday morning and want to make sure that we are there in time.

Thanks in advance!

Hey guys! Is there a hotel/motel close by? If not, I would be intersted in a resort also as I don't have any camping reservations made.

I still have my golf ball - I probably should have turned that back in - but just so you know I still have it.

Also - I have a question about the second day start up. Is it reverse order from the first day or lowest weight of fish going first - there was some confusement in that so I wanted to check to be sure.

Now I suppose I should try to find a partner for this event...

Hey guys, thanx for rattling my cage...it's comming up quick isnt it!!
We'll be doing the launch and weigh-in at the access in Starbuck. It is the best one of all our choices.
We'll be having our meeting/drawing at 11 am and start at noon. We will also be doing a break at 4 for an hour, then fish from 5 to 9. Suday will be from 7 am to 11, then from noon to 4.
See you there!!

Clueless, I believe we draw golf balls before every event. You better bring that golf ball to Minnewaska! smile.gif

Big Jim,
I have a campsite reservation at Woodlawn (Woodland?) Resort for Friday and Sat. night. I called in a couple days ago and they had at least 3 campsites still available for that weekend, and it was $20/night. Includes electricity, showers, docking, etc. They also rented boat lifts for a reasonable price...$10?
I couldn't find any other resorts that had openings, everything seeming booked solid (that was semi-close to Starbuck).

Is there more than one public access in Starbuck? I could swear I saw an access just off of Hwy 29, near the swimming beach, and two more ramp sites in Hobo park canal/boat slip area. Which launch site will we be meeting at? Thanx

Not the ones in Hobo Park. It's the public Access in Starbuck. As far as I know, you have to pay to launch at Hobo Park. I'll check with Paul to make sure, but I think the regular public access is the one he picked out. I'll email everyone as soon as I check with him which should be tonight or tomarrow.

It's the regular P.A. in Starbuck. It is just off of Highway 29. FYI there are two bait shops within 2 blocks of this access. We haven't figured out what where we are going to do the dinner yet. We were going to do it out at the State Park, but it sounds like not too many of you are camping out there. We will unfortunately probably still have to do it there, but we are working on alternative sites.

Rumor has it CD has a big camping spot right on the lake. We could all eat there! I am sure there is room. Plus, if you eat to much grin.gif and can not drive back to your site, you can stay with CD. I am sure he has lots of room in his camper.ScottS

So it is Hobo Park?
Is there a place to beach the boat without paying the $5?

GullGuide,, there is some room at the lake end of the channel,, We talked to the gent in charge of the park and marina area. He told us they typically have lots of vacant slips for the weekend,, Appeared to be a nice picnic & park area next to ramps ifyou're looking for a place for supper...

I like Hobo Park better. It had two different launch sites/parking sites in the canal and it is a public launch (I never saw a sign to pay any fees, or anything that it was private...tons of people were coming and going all day launching boats), in a canal, that is very protected. Parking 12 boats in the canal at once might be an issue, but a heck of a lot easier than on the Hwy 29 access if you get a stiff easterly wind.
I think we could easily park boats off any public launch area (at 4 p.m. break) at the launch sites....it is relatively shallow and sandy bottom in case we need to beach boats.
I will be out there on the Friday B-4, so I can look at possibilities too...

    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
