There was construction going on in the parking lot yesterday.  Not sure exactly what they were doing.

I tried going out and launching at Mayerís yesterday. Iím glad it was a short trip to get there because it was a waste of time.  The launch was loaded with weeds out to around 20í. There was a guy there raking the grass with his hip boots on so he could get his boat out.  It was definitely a no go until they clear that mass of weeds.

I heard on another forum that the launch was closed at the north end of I Bay so I drove over there to see for myself.
Not only is the launch closed but the entire length of the parking area is closed and an Irondequoit police car was there probably making sure non of us criminal fishermen try to sneak in.  I drove around the entire bay and asked if I could launch my 12í winter boat.  The only place that said yes was Mayerís marina at the north east end - at a cost of $10.  Apparently, they are raising the parking lot two feet and putting in a new launch. I doubt they will even be open for the spring perch.  Thank you Mike Seely and the town of Irondequoit.

All that plus more. A playground and other amenities. As a town resident and someone who bought a 5 year NYS Parks pass to mitigate the expense of launching there, Iím a little torn. The bay is my home water. The launch is 1 mile from my garage. Iím shut down in that regard. However, Iíve seen the public use of the park and launch absolutely explode in just the last 2 years. For boaters, for swimmers and beach goers on the lake side, for shore fishermen, for people just getting an ice cream and walking out on the pier and feeding the waterfowl. Itís only going to continue to grow. And I donít think thatís a bad thing. Itís an awesome resource for our town. But the town has to be forward thinking or itís going to turn into a real poop parade down there. So I get it. Iíll be inconvenienced for a couple seasons but Iíll lump it and just try to create opportunities to chase down other outings that maybe Iíve back burnered for a little too long. Iíll give my business to S&R instead of online or Sportsmanís Warehouse. Heading there this hour, in fact.
Tight lines fellas.
