Many of our members have personal blogs talking about catching fish and techniques. The blogs are wonderful to read and learn from.
Our buddy Scott has a new entry which should be read. Scott is a student in Florida when he's not home in Westchester fishing. He was lucky to get out with friends to go grouper fishing recently. Catching a giant grouper and having it eaten by a shark as it was reeled in isn't even the big story of the day. Read how Scott and his friends dealt with going overboard when the boat capsized.
We are happy to have Scott around to tell his story. Click his blog link on the right to read it all.
Our members had a great time pitching in and helping the DEP keep our reservoirs clean. We focused on Kensico Reservoir this day.
DEP Project Manager, Cathy Durso, helped organize the day which had volunteers from the area besides our group from WestchesterFishing.com. The DEP provided gloves, bags, and other safety items to all participants. Safety was highlighted as we went to the different boat launch and shore fishing areas on Kensico.
Here are a few quick shots for now...
Reservoir Cleanup Day - Sunday October 5th, 2014
Members of The WestchesterFishing.com forums will be helping the DEP with their annual cleanup project. Frankly, most active fishermen do this work throughout the year in keeping with their respect for the environment and our watershed areas. Unfortunately there are still people who need to be educated about taking their garbage and debris with them after fishing our beautiful lakes and streams.
