Just would like to relay the information that I received from the DNR that on Monday April25th they will be stocking 67,000 Kings at the little cal and trail creek . The following day they will stock 67,000 Kings at East Chicago Marina at approx. 10am .at the boat ramp. If you have a chance to stop by the Marina I would encourage you to do so. We are very lucky to have this take place at the Marina and with all of the talk of more stocking reductions it maybe the first and last time you get a chance to witness this take place. If anybody has any connections with the local press this would be great for the fishing community to know that the INDNR is working hard to keep the fishery alive for all to enjoy.

Looks like they made it! NWI Times article from Tuesday....
EAST CHICAGO — John Warren, who operates King Seeker Charters, hopes the release of 67,000 Chinook salmon fingerlings at the East Chicago marina will give the fish a better chance for survival. The fingerlings have been released by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources at Gary's Buffington Harbor in the past, but Warren thinks the breakwalls, docks and boats at the marina may give the fingerlings more protection from predators, such as gulls. The fingerlings released Tuesday were 3.75 inches long. "After discussion with our angling groups," said Michelle Cain, wildlife information specialist with the state DNR, "both the DNR and angling groups believe stocking in East Chicago marina will offer boat anglers more and easier opportunities to target these fish when they return to spawn as adults, and possibly offer better survival of the young fish at the time of stocking." Both Warren and Cain also noted this could provide more opportunity for shore fishermen to catch the mature fish when they return. Cain said the East Chicago Marina area has access for shore anglers that Buffington Harbor doesn't currently provide. "We are kind of fortunate this year," Warren said. A similar number of Chinook salmon fingerlings were released into the East Branch of the Little Calumet River and along Trail Creek, for a total of about 200,00 fingerlings. It is likely these numbers won't be as high in the future. Warren said because of officials' concerns about a decline in bait fish, the number of the Chinook salmon has been reduced dramatically from what it was a few years ago. Ben Dickinson, assistant Lake Michigan Fisheries biologist, said of concern over the amount of bait fish in the lake, "it is likely that Chinook salmon reductions will happen in the future in order to bring predator and prey back in balance." Dickinson said these reductions possibly could occur as early as next year, although no formal decision has been made. He indicated a lot of factors need to be considered and data reviewed first. He said the decision on stocking quotas are made cooperatively with agencies in Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin.

bullelkklr: How did the bow mounting of the exhaust port for the Espar heater work out for you? I am working on a similar installation of a D2 heater and am trying to decide whether to take the exhaust out the hull starboard side or put it where you did.

bullelkklr: Do you have any problems with melting coolers or being too hot to the touch on the gunnel from the exhaust? Is there any problems with exhaust fumes on the back deck from swirling exhaust when on anchor?
