First Class Bass Charters Lake Erie Fishing Report: Week of July 23

First Class Bass Charters Lake Erie Fishing Report: Week of July 23

Water Temp: 78 degrees

SMALLMOUTH BASS action was extremely hot until the dreaded northeast winds started to blow.  The head of the river has been producing fish. There have been a good number of smallmouth being caught near the Round House and the area near the EU2 red buoy. A good place to look for bigger fish is the west side of Seneca Shoals in 35 feet to 45 feet of water. Try dragging a Yum F2 tube jig (smokin mellon) in these areas and hold on to your rod.

Heart Performs at Artpark: Interview with Ann Wilson

Heart Performs at Artpark: Interview with Ann Wilson

Does being a rock 'n' roll star and performing in front of thousands and thousands of singing, fist-pumping, hand-clapping fans ever get old?

What do you think?

"No, that would not be old," Heart lead singer Ann Wilson says.

The vocalist behind a heap of hit songs says, "That's why we do this, is because we have something to say. We really do want to get with people and do our thing and connect with them."

Alongside her sister, ace guitarist Nancy Wilson, Ann has said plenty in songs such as "Magic Man" (about the dangers of young love), "Barracuda" (about working in the despicable music industry), "What About Love?" (about finding romance in the mayhem of life), "Never" (about not giving up), "These Dreams" (about fantasy colliding with reality), and "Alone" (about struggling to find and keep "the one").

Unique Places: Lower Lakes Marine Historical Society and Museum

BUFFALO, NY - The Lower Lakes Marine Historical Society is a museum nestled in the heart of downtown, and dedicated to Buffalo's storied waterfront history.

It is also located in a most appropriate structure.

"This is actually the old Howard Baker building which was a ship chandlery here in Buffalo," explained museum volunteer Pattie Glaser, explaining further that a chandlery supplied all the ships, canal boats, and lake freighters with supplies, including food stuffs, wiring, ropes, lines, and pretty much anything they needed during the 19th century, when Buffalo was the third largest inland port in the world.

Some of those types of things are still here, along with everything else imaginable telling a story unique to the Queen City's glorious maritime past.

The museum also includes a display on Buffalo's infamous Canal street neighborhood near the terminus of the Erie Canal.
