Usually in NY the 1st Sat. in May but as you get older more Medical issues/appts have kept me in FL. Might take small jon boat in truck this year and concentrate on small bodies of water. Grandson has pestering me to get up there and now that he is running the boats/motors I can understand. Please post your fishing trip info on Lamoka, Kueka inlet and other small bodies of water like the state ponds so we have an idea where to start.
