New York Ice fishing Reports

273 posts in this topic

Had a great trip to Massachusetts today with famdamily and we left just as that noreaster was starting to wind up. We had to cut our visit short because of the weather but had a great time at my Mom and Dads. Fishing with an old friend and my Marine tomorrow. Want to thank Kyle for letting Tyler use his LX-5, thanks partner. Will be in a bay off Oneida digging in to hopefully some nice big sunnies and an occasional crappie and maybe shoot for some eyes later in the week before he leaves on the 1st back to Cali and then deployment. I couldn't ask for a better Christmas present when Tyler arrived Christmas eve. If you want to see a grown man go instantly to tears check out my facebook page. Here is a pic of 6'4" and 185 lbs and part of the greatest fightin force known to man a United States Marine. Hoorah!

Yes he had to scoot down to get in the pic but Mom and I are so happy he's home!

Christmas eve surprise and you can't see me but their were many tears of joy!

The Big O continues to be very good to us. wink Fished yesterday with a bunch of buddies. After spending the first few hours dealing with many non-biters, the eyes finally became a little more active. Jigging raps produced the most fish and most everyone in my group were limited or at least had two. I landed my first two real eyes (no pin pike) of the year, both males and each at 18.5". Somehow I managed to hook and loose 5 others - don't know how they free themselves of the jigging rap but they did. Two I hit the front or back hook on the ice but the others just came off. Also managed 5 nice yellows and 8 good sized silvers or white perch. Fished 22'. Sorry about the picture, my friend Glen is obviously a better fisherman than a cameraman.

Cloud - some awesome fish and some awesome pics. Don't know what kind of camera you use, but your pictures are always terrific.

Big O report - was really the Big O today as in zerO. I didn't fish very long, lost a good eye and that was that. Only 2 silvers afterwards. Except for a few good perch, no one in our group had any eyes when I left. Yesterday, same place, same lures, same guys - they did very well. Perhaps the fact that a small city was out there may have spooked the fish.

Anyways hope everyone has a good New Years Eve and a terrific 2011.

Tim,

I have had the same trouble with my transducer of the LX-5 sticking in the well. Today it would not come out, so I used your bracket, screw method and it came out, but now the ducer has a mark that is "in" the bottom. It is a circle the same size as the screw.. Did I just ruin a Transducer, or is it ok?? Man, I had no issues with it last year and no problems with the VX-1. I would hope I would not have to buy a new transducer on a $500 unit after one year...I can give my e-mail address if you want.

Thanks

Started off the New Year on a high note. My friend Glen talked me into venturing out since it was his last day here in New York before returning to Minnesota. I sure am glad he did. I left the ice with 6 good ones including an all time best (documented) of a little over 14". Glen had 5 good ones also. Don't know if the picture does her justice but my 14+ was a brute. Wanted to return her to the water but the air bladder was in the back of her mouth and she seemed to be bleeding from the gills so I reluctantly kept her. Oh, by the way, she hit a lure TipUp Timmy turned me onto - a rainbow color forage minnow wink. Thanks Tim!

Thats the pot calling the kettle black... ol Glen was pretty good at "close" drilling back in the day... whistle

Nice fish Dave!

You mentioned about the pictures. All my picts the last 3-4 years were taken with an Olympus 850SW(shockproof waterproof). It is a relativly inexpensive camera that can be found for under 3bills. I like it because of being waterproof and its size. It is about the size of a deck of cards.

The biggest thing I learned about cameras is to learn all the features, setting, and options. Sure it takes nice photos on the "auto" setting but the ones that really shine are useing other settings...

    • Think im gonna try good old grass clippings since they seem to replenish themselves very rapidly
    • My good buddy from back in SD does fantasy and we have another group we are apart of and he ended up tied for 5th overall last tourney. After day 3 he was in 3rd with the possibility to win it. So close to getting that $2500 basspro card
    • After the cold snap, temps on Trout were back down in the high 40s. Back around 53 now, and should keep warming if the forecast holds. Fish have already moved shallow, bedmaking and piscine lovemaking will follow soon for the brown ones. I am hitting Leech tomorrow...will be interesting to see what water temps are in the protected parts of the bays.
    • Here's some useful information: go shallow, and chuck a swim jig with a paddle tail trailer and set the hook til your arms fall off. Better?
    •   If you like to tinker with guns, you can get a surplus Saiga for a couple hundred bucks.  All sorts of accessories available for these, and they can also be converted to 12 gauge if that's your preference.          
    • I was out last night on a local lake and was surprised to see the water temp down to 57.  Caught a couple cookie cutter fish, but not the big ones I was looking for. Fished a lot of weeds in the 6-9ft range, but not a lot going on there. The biggest one was still shallow in some reeds, so not sure if we are still in the spawn/post spawn stage.     Whats everyone else seeing out there for a bite and fishing conditions. Big weekend coming up, Good luck!! 
    • Maxine_Partain, Welcome to the forum.  There seem to be a lot of folks from Canada joining up in the last half a year which is nice. The sad thing is they all seem to make about 3 posts on the same day they joined and then they never come back which is sad. Hopefully you will keep posting.

    • hi and welcome to HSO. I think you mean double hung not double pane. if you have moisture between the panes you have a seal failure. depending on the brand you might be able to just replace the glass. If you have lots of rot you may need to do a complete replacement. Best to have a window person pop by and check out the situation.
