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.

    • Oxidizers were federally mandated in 1997. Politicians took big contributions from the ethanol industry which is set up to benefit ethanol manufacturers and big operations. It has in fact hastened the demise of small and medium farms and the rural communities that depended on them. The farm belt has suffered greatly as a result of regulations passed that benefit the big operations. Small & medium farmers cannot compete with growing ag corporations who can buy seed with big discounts, often exploit illegal workers and can ship product cheaper. Corn had it's short 10 year or so boon after 1997. But that went bust as more marginal land was tilled under & overproduction was achieved to the benefit of ethanol producers. Many farms are still going bust or selling out to the big corporations. 75% of the land in production is owned by big corporate farms. 30 years ago you could flip that number around. So what has this gov't subsidy done for most farmers? Put them out of business!
    • Sorry if I came across as a bit abrasive.  Some of us can get a little surly around here and sometimes we forget we aren't talking to one of the other surly long-timers.   I get what you're saying about a more hunting specific truck with some specific bells and whistles designed with hunters in mind.  I do think the best way to get a truck like that would be to find the base model truck you like for all of the normal stuff trucks come with and then look for some sort of after market option.  There has to be a pro or 2 out there that can take on such a project if you aren't up for tackling it yourself.  I'd be a bit nervous cutting into a new truck as well so would look to hire it out as well.   A couple things that I'd like.  A winch in the bed like you mentioned.  Could be used for loading deer, portable ice houses, or other large loads when you don't have another guy to help. Some sort of instant heat or maybe an app that could start your car from the stand. Maybe some sort of gun safe type lock box behind the seats or in the floor so that if you can keep your rifle or shotgun cased and locked up.  It could be useful for times you may want to sneak out for a hunt after work and you want a better way to secure your firearm when at work.
    • Just a seasoning packet. Adjust the recipe as you see fit. A late summer batch with fresh sweet corn off of the cob works pretty well.     
    • I have a nice truck, but.... For 1 week a year there are things that I would like to change/add. Keyless start would go with keyless entry, like the new ranger boat, punch in your number and go. I can not turn off my lights on my gmc sierra. I install 12v electronics professionally but I wouldn't feel as comfortable cutting into wiring harnesses to add switches as I am tearing all wiring from a boat and doing it from scratch. I'm not trying to hide from the animals, I don't want people to know where my hunting spots are and chrome sticks out bad. I go farther and climb higher and sit longer than 95% of fellow hunters which is why I average 6.3 deer/year (legally) but people who know of my success will seek out my parking spot and return thinking that its the only good spot to hunt. Anyways... I was just trying to open up a friendly conversation about a perfect hunting rig to get people out of the political talk that HSO seems to be about. My best stand is walking distance from my house so all I need a truck for is to retrieve my bucks. Was hoping for something besides abrasive comments and criticism that seems to follow most of my posts. I'm sorry I will quietly read and keep my fingers away from the keyboard. I made it into the ALL TIME RECORD BOOK with a 172" typical public land giant when I drove a 2000 Chev Malibu 24k gold edition anyway. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful time. 
    • Check your throttle position sensor voltage. KOEO you should see .8 to 1.0 volts with the throttle closed.  
    • Spring officially arrived March 20 with the vernal equinox and temperatures leading into it were very spring like, bringing a close to much of the outdoor winter recreation across the state. Snowmobile trails now remain open in only a handful of northern counties on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR) and more are expected to close with warm weather this week. Many state parks and forests have discontinued ski trail grooming, so even if a spring snowstorm arrives most trails will not be groomed. Most mountain bike and horse trails are closed and will remain closed until they dry out. There is still up to 2 feet or more of snow in some northern counties, making it a great time to get out and explore on snowshoes, which are a must for trekking out in the woods.Flood waters were rampant last week in some areas of southern Wisconsin but many went down over the weekend. As of March 20, the Trempealeau River had dropped to minor flood stage and the Crawfish, Rock, Fox and Manitowoc rivers were expected to remain in moderate flood stage through next week. .
    • Just buy whatever truck you want and get started adding after market accessories, probably cheaper than buying all that stuff standard on a niche truck that will likely be really over priced due to it being a specialty item.  Most of that list could probably be doable fairly easily.  Personally I don't think half of that list is kind of pointless though.  If your non-camo truck with reflective chrome bumpers is giving you away to the animals you might want to get a bit further away from your truck when you're hunting.  If you're really struggling with loose ammo rolling all around the floor of your truck try leaving it in the box when its not in your gun. Key less entry might be nice but if you lose your key in the woods it will just give you a place to sit while you wait for someone to give you a ride home. Can't you already turn your lights/high beams off when your truck is running?
    • Most of that would be do-able by a small outfit (not 4 wheel steering).   Business opportunity for someone
    • Also got my bonus tag. Both tags bought and ready to rock in a couple months.  
    • Just scored my Zone 4 bonus tag.  Quick and easy.
