Good info, Esox. Anybody needs info about the Chaumont Bay area, Esox Slayer is the guy to ask. (hope you don't mind) Fished with him once last year. He's got some tricks. Hope to fish with him again this year.

Let's get after 'em again this year ! 

Rig some stuff for walleyes because we're heading to a couple spots (close to where you and I fished last year) that are gonna produce.

Ever fish an area on the Oswegatchie called "Chaumont"?  Not the bay off Lake Ontario.  I've seen some nice pike and crappie come from there.
Have not fished Chaumont "Pond" myself but know people that do and they do well at times. Its between Cranberry Lake and Newton Falls.

Great thread!  When I was stationed at Fort Drum and later at college in Canton I use to fish all these lakes.  We are going back 15 to 20 years now.  Red Lake was the first lake I caught a pike on a tip up and my first 25"+ walleye one summer morning casting countdown rapalas from my canoe.  Caught my first 10+ pound pike ice fishing Sandy Pond and discovered night fishing for crappie in mile arm bay of Black Lake.  Had a 30 pike afternoon ice fishing butterfield lake one day with my girlfriend at the time who I have been married to for almost 14 years now.  We had to have over 50 flags that afternoon.

Yep definitely a sportsman paradise up there.  I wish the Albany area was a couple hours closer than it is!

Never did much tip up fishing. Will make sure I have them in the sled this year. What's the difference between tip-ups and tip-downs?

Never used a tip-down.  I know quite a few folks make their own.

I'll bring a couple of my tip down along this winter, hand made by a guy in Oxbow, NY.  These aren't the cheapie plastic or pvc things you see a lot of, these are made from oak, are very compact and are designed to not be either pulled down a hole nor to be prone to tipping over.

I don't know, but it would seem that a tip-down would have a greater chance of gut hooking a fish than a tip-up. Does this make sense?

All depends on what you are looking to accomplish.  Some folks like eating fish.  ;D
I do, when it's fresh.

fish out of Guffin Bay Resort on open water but never on hard water, thinking of making a trip this winter. Do you need any special license on-wheeler or sidebyside to travel on ice in NY? Down here we can`t even use them to fish,but that is a large area to fish on foot.  Thanks  IM59  (I agree that Bryan is a great guy!!)

You need registration, insurance and follow the rules - helmets, no two-up unless the machine was designed for it, etc, etc.  Don't know if NY honors a PA ATV registration.

ffp, I noticed you have some kind of shield on the front of your wheeler. Did you make that? Never fails, hands frozen by the time I run a couple of miles to my spot.

It's a Polaris Tall windshield; you can get all kinds of them in different sizes and forms.  Mine covers the hand areas too.  I also use heated grips and thumb throttle.  I would do without the windshield before the heated grips.  You can get the heated grip kits and do them yourself - pretty easy install, if you are handy.
