I'm strongly considering buying a jon boat for New Croton reservoir. Never owned a boat. I'm coming from New York City so the southernmost NYC reservoir is what I'm looking at. I heard a Kensico, Cross River and Muscoot are closed. So I guess the southern most reservoir that is open is New Croton. I fish mostly large mouth & small mouth bass. I heard only about half of the moring locations are open. Any recommendations on whether the west side or the east Side of the reservoir would be better? Then, what moring locations would be a good place to start? Of course any tips, tricks or suggestions would be very much appreciated. Remember this would be my 1st boat I've ever owned and have no experience on this reservoir. Thank you in advance.
