New York Ice fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

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".

Nice job Timmy getting Amanda on some fish!

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.

Should have went to Big Gray Bay...

Billy and I scouted out a new lake today for a few hours. Nothing too exciting to report... A bunch of 5 inch gills and one 10 inch perch...

I think I'll be hitting BB in the morning if anyone is interested? Give me a shout or a text and we can hook up. I'm going to fish the morning bite then have to get home and put a loft bed together, the things dads do.......

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.

    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck.

    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
    • Maybe, We have some of that disease in the family. I'm of the opinion that if you are diabetic the kind of beer you should drink is NO BEER. 
    • Not if you're diabetic.
    • Anyone here have any experience with keeping and using pigeons, especially homers, for dog training?   I have an almost 2 year old Brittany that has not even been out hunting yet.... Last fall he was pretty young yet plus I had some health issues that kept me unable to walk around the woods or fields.   I'm not trying to turn my dog into some kind of world champion hunter or anything. I just want to be able to spend more time, all year long as opposed to only hunting season,  doing the thing he loves to do the most. We already have a great time on a daily basis playing an endless game of fetch and he is the most prolific tennis ball catcher (after one bounce) that I have ever seen. He also spends his days chasing rabbits, birds and squirrels in our fenced in yard along with lounging in his very own pool on hot days. He is trained to do all the normal things like sit, lay, shake, come, etc and I have no doubt that he has lots of natural hunting instinct so this seems to be where the progression of his training should head.   I do live in town but as long as I'm not keeping dozens of birds at one time, I don't think it will be an issue. I will check with the city before proceeding though. I'm thinking of getting about 6 homing pigeon squeakers and keeping them in a hutch in my yard. Is there any problem with the birds being in the same yard as the dog?   I'm thinking I could go out to the country on any given day and plant a few birds for my dog to sniff out. I have access to private property to do this on but I am wondering, is it legal to do this on wildlife management areas? I think I recall that after a certain date it is OK to train dogs?   Anyone else do this? Any advice?
