King - looks like I won't be able to make it down this week. Maybe next week, the ice should hold baring some calamity. Heard there was a bit of excitement on Oneida this morning. A friend of mine had to wade through waist high water to get back to shore - not fun.

Franky, how you doing? Missed the outing with you guys a while ago.

itchy trigger finger from a poor hunting season. Thought I could cure it by some ice fishing . . .but either too many dinks or too many yoyoing . . .but still ice fishing is ice fishing. Don't like the forecast for this weekend but if you don't go, you don't know. Besides my suit floats.

On sat we had a group there and everyone ripped into the crappies pretty good! Ice was getting junky quick though...

Very nice guys...... the ice is still here for at least another 10 days and should be fishing into April no problem in the dacks. Gotta love fishing in T-shirt weather with nobody else around and plenty of safe ice. smile

Have to agree with you. I'll be there on Saturday with Cindy . . .she should have a ball with the dinks, but one never knows what may show up. Josh's 3lb smallie showed that. We all got a handful of decent perch with my 13 incher taking the prize. It is always interesting to see the entertainment when three shelters are within 10 feet of each other fishing deep . . . you are guaranteed to have it sound like someone has a double . . .hey, there is a line around my fish!!

Be careful out there guys things are not safe on 99.9% of the lakes. There are reports of guys (some I know personally) going through the ice around the state. I know guys that have traveled all over the Adirondacks to only find safe ice on small ponds.

Timmy-toe and I hit the ice today along with 3 of my buddies. Ice conditions were good to sketchy... some areas had 4" black 2" white other areas 2" black 1" water 2" water. We got fishing by 10am and the fish were negative until 3pm then we starting hitting crappie and a few gills everyone ended up with 7-10 keeper crappie and a few keeper gills. Slow for first ice but we got her done. 2 of my buddies today drove all over central/southern Adirondacks yesterday and this morning and only found safe ice on 2 lakes one of which we were fishing on. Mad dog

    • I've caught a lot of big bass on spinnerbaits over the years and I wanted to share one simple tip that is often overlooked when fishing spinnerbaits or really any bait in general when targeting big bass.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-PDaV8byhw

    • Thanks for the info, I will give them a call.
    • The one thing I can think of that your son could have done differently is that maybe he should have got a name from the land owner and sought out the other hunter for a discussion before hand. The hunting woods are a much safer place when everyone hunting the area knows the whereabouts and plans of each other hunter in the woods.   That's not to say that the other 50 year old guy isn't being an unreasonable, entitled, first class a hole but part of this may be due to a misunderstanding if there was not a discussion prior to hunting season. 
    • I agree with you 100%. If it were me who had the permission to hunt I would approach things differently but when my son is involved I would back down and use it as a learning lesson. I would however tell the lady that your son is not going to be hunting her land and the exact reason why. If it were my land, I would want to know.
    • Horns make some otherwise normal people crazy. I'm not a horn hunter myself and that is one reason why.  
    • Dang what a shame not cool at all. I agree with leech. That’s more than enough acreage for more than one hunter to hunt. If he had the guts to go talk to the neighbor lady and she was fine with it then all is good. If this “kid” ( old guy) has an issue with it then he needs to grow up It’s not his land. Not many kids even hunt anymore so the fact that he wants to is great. Let him hunt some and if it continues to be an issue then maybe just tell him to pull the plug? I’m also dealing with some crazy neighbors right now that continue to feed. The CO has been out many times and they still do the same thing tickets have been given and there’s been some talking. I hate to “ tadle” on others but when people think they have rights that others shouldn’t have then that’s where a CO may come into play. Not saying you need to do this but if he comes barging to the door and demanding your son leave then maybe something needs to change and maybe he shouldn’t be allowed there. 
    • Leech- I thought about that same thing.  I do not know the guy or the family, so unsure of what the dynamic is there.    Thanks for the responses.  We are going to head over there this evening and talk with the lady. My plan is take it down either way.  If she says he can still hunt, and boot the other guy, or even let them both hunt i dont think if the experience is going to be anything we are looking forward to dealing with.  We have 10 acres at our house he's hunting too, and going to do some more knocking on doors.  I get being protective over his "spot". It just bothers me that he would be so unwilling to allow a 15 yr old to experience what he clearly loves to do.  Life will go on.  We will be in Montana in Oct, chasing elk and mule deer. He wont be missing out!  Those bucks are roaming the river bottom we live on, maybe the ultimate revenge will be having a chance to shoot one of them on our own land we are grooming for wildlife together.
