Attention Guys/Gals -   Someone Stole our tip ups out of their holes last Saturday night! (1/11/14)  My daughter and I put them in after the rain stopped and fished until the winds picked up and rain started.  My parents live on Honeoye lake in the cove by Burns Point (East Side 1/4 mile South of Marina).  We were inside eating dinner, and I went back out to check them and they were gone! (Between 6-8pm)  5 Black Polar Tipups  :tipup:  Reflective tape on the flags. 500' Spools.   These tipups are the ones my father bought me as a kid and want to pass them on to my kids.  And yes, they were labeled with our names!  I checked the shoreline and found nothing.  We have evidence they were stolen, a shoelace was caught in a leader and they broke the line on the grab.  My father and I have been fishing the same cove for 30 years and never had a problem.  If you know who has them or come across them in your travels, please ask they do the right thing --- Return them to the yellow Cape Cod house on Burns Point.  No questions asked!  Thank you!   >:( >:( >:(  Feel free to share this post!  Thanks! Pete

That too bad - unfortunately there are a lot of opportunists out there that think if they need something more that you do its OK to take it.  Could just have been someone trying to teach the owner a lesson about not leaving tip-ups unattended too I suppose.  Technically what you were doing is against the law but thats not a reason to take the flags.  Hope you get them back.

I got ticketed on Silver Lake a dozen years ago for something similar. I had my spread out, was fishing for a couple hours, walked up to shore to my cousin's house where we were parked to use the bathroom and microwave a quick bowl of chili. I looked out the window and there's someone standing in the middle of my spread looking around. I went out immediately and it was DEC and he immediately wrote me a ticket. I told him "I was right there" and pointed to the house and that I hadn't been gone more than 5 minutes. That didn't matter. I had left my gear "unattended".

Thanks Guys for the positive feedback!  If I see you out there...stop by and say hello.  We will have a nip and talk about the old days of catching fish. (Honeoye fishing seems to get worse every year)   Who remembers Good Derbies like - Honeyhole, Gamrods, Chamber of Commerce, California Ranch, Fish and Game Club!   Them were the days!  See you out there!  Watch out for gas holes on the west side!!

Regards,
Pete

No Arguing! .....Ok, at least we know the secret spot now. ;D

 Seriously though Hipnip, I may be able to dig up some tipups that we're no longer using if you want them for the daughter.

Thanks Devo!  I'm good!  Maybe Grandpa will give some up!

why do u think that blue alge comes around every summer?  Every year about a week after they start cutting the lake turns to pea soup and the 3" of "grass clippings" floating on top promotes the blue alge process..I don't even go to the family cottage after July 4it is nasty...what a way to destroy an amazing lake, and I have seen other alge blooms on other lakes you can't tell me that honeoyes weed cutting has nothing to do with It.

Hipnip: yes you were in violation, analyze it this way. If you didn't see someone taking the time to pull up your tip-ups, then you wouldn't have seen a flag pop. That is the reason for the law. In attendance means that you have to have sight of the tip-ups so as soon as a flag pops you can react by starting towards the active tip-up. When I was checking ice fisherman and  found what I presumed to be "unattended" tip-ups, I would wave my arm and if no one appeared within a couple of minutes it was ticket time.
      Also, you need the name and address of the "operator" on said tip-up. That means the tip-up can have many names and address on them. You should see the Mennonites in the Penn Yan area, they may have five or six names on each tip-up as the pass them around between family members so much. JTP

Interesting, and it is too bad. Now they have room for about 100 boat trailers at the South launch and the Lake is unfishable about the time people would be coming....  Cya...

Not to change the subject but I miss the noce Pickerel days on the south end. Use to fish there starting 30 years ago and they were plentyful. I went a few years ago and didn't see or hear of one.
What happened to them.

     I was probably fishing right next to you back then. They were a lot in the lake back in the day . now its the Bass that are plentiful. Could be any number of reasons as to why they declined. But I'm not a Biologist so couldn't give you a straight answer.
      The lake has changed a lot over the years.
How's the ice

I caught and released a 29" pickerel on the south end last week, my personal best. But u are right on about the bass. They are fun to catch though

I remember back in college once when I went up to check out Honeoye. Nasty algae bloom and the year was 1970. Also, another one of our favorite spots, Silver, had the worse algae bloom I ever saw in 1971. They did not cut weeds back then either. I kind of think that direct sewage and fertilizer caused the problem back then. They stopped that and both lakes cleared for a while. Next thing you know, they cut the weeds and the alge bloom comes back. Blue green algae (Cyanobacteria) live off of dead vegetation and cause it to decay giving off all those toxins. Weed cutting is just not sound and hurts the ecosystem in a variety of ways.  My 2 cents!

Got out with my dad and bros yesterday. Managed to pick up 2 nice deep water Bluegills and a nice perch. The bro also picked up a nice keeper perch and we caught plenty of small ones. Saw 2 smallies on the camera as well and the one was pushing 3.5lbs by the looks of him. teased me by tapping the jig 3 times but wouldn't grab it.
