I heard that the popular access to Big Bay has been posted.
True?

>:(

I'm not sure how" legal" that posting is?

According to the Oswego County Tax Maps, which can be viewed at the Oswego County GIS Parcel Veiwer....

There is a definite PUBLIC ACCESS there .  ;D

To the north, parcel 293.08-02-33 owned by Scott Whittaker
To the south, parcel 307.08-02-03 owned by Don Weber

The map clearly shows these properties do not adjoin. With the Right of Way between them.

Sounds like somebody is up to something?  :unsure:

raate is right, that little strip between the properties is owned by the town of west monroe, and has always been public access.

yes i know that but a few years ago went through that and a guy was threatening to sue because he fell and they piled snow up in front of the entrance either way your going to pay to park ,then why is there no sign there stating public access? , looks like another shouting match again this year  ;D

So the Marina is the only access now?? Or is the colvert still "legaly" ok?? Last time I went last year I used the colvert for the first time and parked on the road west of the bar....was that not a "ok" parking spot?? Wasnt sure if I should park in the lot at the end of the road since it says it is the lot for the storage place. I am still kinda new to ice fishing and dont want to be one of the ones parking in places that piss the local resedents off and make us loose access.

The parking lot at the storage place is where your supposed to park if you access by the culvert.  There is a sign there that tells you how much to pay for parking and a box where you put your envelope with your name, lic plate #, etc...  Thats if you can even access via the culvert anymore.  Hope this helps man :-\

There are 2 "right of ways" and the one that is behind the Ship and Shore bar is one of them. Parking on public roads is banned due to a neighbor who did some politicking with the town years ago, I used to be really good friends with his son. He does look for anything to B about, so don't park on the street there. I think the parking at the storage place is 3 or 4 dollars, which isn't bad considering it is always plowed out and whatnot. Don't park and not pay, the guy has a tow truck business too, and you will find your vehicle gone when you get off the ice, or he will give you hell. He got after me one afternoon after I fished that morning and left, then didn't put loot in the box on my second trip. I told him I payed this morning, and asked if that was OK, he said it was and he checked the box and I was good to go.

Petey runs the bar at Big bay now, avid ice fisherman and really good egg all around. I dunno the deal with parking there.

Perhaps one thing to consider & be cautious of, TONS of the real estate not on the lake but within 1/2 mile has a "deeded" right of way.  This is more common than not around Oneida. Just check craigslist for real estate with Oneida as the key word.  In order to save the money & hassel of establishing an HOA & having to charge extra fees to cover taxes on these pseudo private access points they just left them somewhat undeclared.  Although the "spirit" of them was for use by property owners.  They let the property taxes go because they got more outa the increased values of the occupied parcels with this access.
Be careful before you start a peeing match, & remember its probably tje behavior of fisherman that ticked off the residents to begin with.  This never ends well.
