New York Ice fishing Reports

273 posts in this topic

Hi guys I know its been a while and I am looking forward to another ice season with the NY Gang. Jay sorry I have been kinda AWOL on the site longer than I would like but I just kind of been in a funk lately and am starting to get excited about the important things in life like fishing. I will be checking in more often, I have to tell you that Dark Clouds, Fishingking and everybody elses posts in this forum particularly are the best therapy for me until I can get back to work. With that out of the way I am here to proclaim that the Richfield Springs diner is open at 6 a.m. and the S.O.S over bisguits with hashbrowns is better than ever.

A perfect spot to fuel your body for a funfilled day of tip upping laugh right Tim? Me and the King fished our spot on Cando and ice conditions were ok south but not out front. Shore ice out solid 3" when you got past 9.5' of water in front it was 1 3/4" to 2" so be careful. like Tim and I were Tim spudded ahead and I followed behind with the rope and the Showdown Ice Troller as we checked ice and probed for weed edges and fish.

We settled in to to fishing with tip ups and jigging Tim and I and had a blast and I brought home 14 nice perch, thanks mostly to Tim's tip-ups and a few jigging like this first drop which whacked my snack pack.

Had a good time on the lake with Amanda today. Nice to be on a solid 6" of ice. Amanda caught 30 fish by her self in 3 plus hours. I am proud of her, she did great. Left at 1 p.m. She hit the trifecta on species. We stopped at McD's on the way back for some fries to munch on the way home. After the fries she fell asleep. Great father and daughter day.

Timmy - nice to hear that your doing better and congrats on a great day with your daughter. Funny how the ice set on on the big C, good thing you warned folks about the iffy areas.

Somebody told me that Todd was planning on taking his daughter fishing. You know, the 27 year old laugh.

Have a good one guys, hoping to get out on Friday maybe. John and I fished Sandy Pond today. Pretty much as expected, caught somewhere in the range of a couple of hundred each. Fish in just about every hole but size was definitely an issue. John had a limit and I was happy with the 20-25 I kept. No jumbos to speak of some 11s but mostly 9" and 10". Ice is decent and snow cover is not all that bad except have to deal with slush sticking to your skis or sled. Hit some good size northerns to, helped John land a 24".

Wow! It must be ice season and christmas all in one??? Lee and AW came out of the woodwork... whistle

I got of of work mid-day today and Tank n Billy picked me up and we headed south. Big winds on top of the Mountain Crappie Lake, almost unbearable. We poked around and ended up with 2 dozen crappies. They were scattered and negative but workable cool

Nice crappie brother Vassil... We.. well i struck out on the the north shore of the Big "o" today. Ice conditions varied from 1 3/4" in front of the camps to 4.5 to 5" out to 32' Oneida is making ice quick with little snow cover and an icy cold breeze blowing across it when we left. Freddy caught a couple stragglers and we ended up marking some fish that were totally negative, good size marks and probably suckers. Good time with you Freddy and we sure did cut alot of holes searching for a flicker on the screen, tough day..

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.

Hope Santa brings us some decent size fish. Did the Darago Dinks game today with MV Joe - pretty disappointing outing considering the body of water we were on. Ice is in excellent shape for early ice and easy walking.

Finally - after a couple of initial outings of futility we finally did something right. The only mistake I made was to fish with some "eye pros". My buddy John, Chris and his friend all limited, Joe had 2 and Bruce 1. All nice eyes. Oh, by the way, in case your wondering, 3 pin pike was all I could manage. But, I won the perch derby by landing 5 jumbos. Sorry no pics of the eyes but hopefully a few pictures of the yellows will be attached. We also caught some big silver bass/white perch, whatever. All I know is that they fight pretty hard. Ice was in good shape, walking was easy. Fished out of edgewater.

Thunder didn't see your post about going out today. John told me he saw you at Marion. I would have been there but I got into the wine last night. Tough to get up around 4am after you overdo the wine thing but enjoyable nonetheless. Planning on going out on Tues.

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
