New York Ice fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

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...

    • 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.
