Took a drive around lakeshore dr on the edgwater area and found 2 shacks and 2 bucket sitters off of McClanathan. Rough ice out a few hundred yds then smooth from there. Was some open water there yesterday am but capped off last night. I guess I'll wait till the weekend to venture out. Timmy: Do you think there are any walleyes left. grin.gifsmirk.giflaugh.gifwink.gifMay head south for a nite bite on Wed.

Went and checked BB today, lots of guys out there. Didn't see too many bluegills, and few crappies unless they already went and emptied their buckets. The only thing i don't like about BB, are all the $$$ fisherman, I think it's a crime to sell the tasty bluegills to the fishmongers. But too each his own I guess.

Next 2 days are going to be cold, so this weekend should be a good 1 almost anywhere i'm guessing. Maybe trip down by the edge with you guys sometime next week, I want to check out Tims fancy fish catching sonar units out. Maybe get 1 for my b-day in february, those things work on crappies too right?? smile.gif

Timmie is on the run right now and asked me to say "absolutely and all the other guys will hang around you with their fancy outfits too" . . .there are a few of us. Looking forward to meeting you on the ice as well. Nothing like a good dry sense of humor!

Fished Sandy Pond on saturday, got just a dozen keep bluegills. There were about 100 people there, most were pike fishing, about 200 tip-ups on the pond. I think I got the biggest amount of bluegills, I moved around a lot, but think maybe the barometer was off so the bite was slow. 5 inches of good ice there,ans 2 slush frozen on top and easy walking.

Fished BB on sunday 7-12, 3 inches good ice, 3 inches bad/white on top. Saw a couple guys towards the mouth of the bay, started making my way out and found ice on top of slush then 1 inch ice towards the middle. Abolutely no keeper fish all day, saw 1 descent crappie and that was all out of the 15 or so partys I saw out there. I'm thinking the gills are out on the pug on the other side of the bay already, this time of year they head for the deeper water I guess. Maybe next weekend i'll venture out fron the BB bar and see how things gel up.

A few people in front of Constantia walking, I went out friday and only found 1 1/2 inches of ice, better them than me. 1 guy was out on Dakins, but I still think ice is not safe at all.

Well i'm off. Going to big sodus next weekend, need some perch 4 the freezer.

Well I couldn't agree more, last weekend was a great example of my blind fishing ways. Although its not financially in the cards that I purchase a vex or marcum new, maybe a used 1 would be more like it. I am checking out hsolist and other outlets to see if any used or reconditioned ones are about. I might be better off buying one in August though.

There were a few guys in front of the bank in constantia today, they fished 6 hours for 7 perch between the 2 of them. No machines were out , and i'm expecting a report later on ice thickness + will post tommorrow. Remember if you go out by the bank in Constantia, Scriba creek is to your left 100 yards, and has been running pretty good lately, so much thinner ice up to 1/4 mile out from there. Go straight or to the right and you'll be fine.

Last week a friend of mine went through the ice on his 4 wheeler. He owns a car sales business in Camden. His billboard sign in front of his business posted The ice is thin,the water is cold,stop at Donnie Z's and we'll mark it sold. Guess that his employees had a bit of fun.He is a great friend and glad he is still ice fishing. grin.gif

North Shore - surprised to hear it was Donnie that went thru on the wheeeler - glad to hear he is ok. He must be taking an absolute pounding on this one. I used to work for the state and did a lot of auditing work on both the town and village of Camden. I met Al because he was the town clerk and met Donnie a couple of times with Al. Had some good discussions about ice fishing and so-forth. Once again, glad to hear he is ok.

Oneida is good for sleds and maybe 4-wheel drive wheelers if you have high ground clearance as well. The walleye action was good a week ago, we went out yesterday and bounced around a lot and only 4 perch all morning. I wasn't in the spot we were catching walleyes in last week, but i'm sure they are still around. Access from Constantia is good, but I did see 1 4-wheeler stuck, but it was an old rear wheel drive with cruddy tires on it towing a shanty. The snow is packing down real good, and I think 99% of the lake is accessible now. no news from the east shore boys, I think they have been all trying to win some jingle at the 2 tourneys on Silver.

Tank, send me an e-mail at [email protected]

Well you were right about us trying to get some jingle, but for the life of me I don't know why. Since there is ice on Oneida and I do have a two up . . .need to find safe travel on the big O and find some pot belly perch and walleye. I still don't have a warm fuzzy on traveling on O with a snowmobile/quad. I heard on Delta they are having to gun to keep out of the slush . . . not a pleasant thought of what might be below that slush or what might NOT be below that slush.

Conditions in front of Constantia were good for a sled, but the 4-wheelers were having trouble. Saw 1 guy out there with a 6 wheeler with army-tank treads on it and he was cruising along just fine as well. I wouldn't be concerned about ice either, I was out by 129-130 + there was plenty of ice for a sled or my sketchy butt wouldn't go out there. I'm the type when the ice groans I come off my bucket in 1/100 of a second + have to hold my water fast or i'll pee myself. 7-8 inches black ice, 2 white on top with 4-8 inches of snow by the bouys.

Just wondering how the walking conditions are on the lake.Is all the slop tightened up I would think it would be how much snows on top?
