With regard to the Buckeyes dying while out on the ice.  I believe it has more to do with the water and temperature the bait shop keeps them in.  At Apps, I believe they circulate water from Oneida Lake.  The water is cold.  Other bait shops keep the water warm (about room temp)  so when you take the Buckeyes outside they eventually get cold. The shock of going from warm to cold kills off the buckeyes. The Buckeyes from Apps are already in that cold Oneida Lake water so they do not go through thermal shock, they remain lively and hardy.  Just my two cents.

fishin mission. you are correct about temp. right now my tanks are at 43 degrees. I have a freezer unit i will be using when i get buckeyes in...that way it will keep the temp at or near freezing..in an optimum situation you want a slight skim on the surface of the tank. emeralds are fragile to begin with and over the years i've seen more die from temperature disparity than anything else.

i have personally not been there. however several dozen people this morning said they where either there or knew people that where and they are saying it is safe....that being said. always err on the side of caution and don't take chances.

I saw a post from Toxic Fisher several days ago saying 2-5 inches at Lewis.  Not sure if it is accurate, but it sounds plausible.

Look for the post on page 45 from Dec 26th I believe.

great advice toxic. I got in a shipment of ht breakdown spuds yesterday already sold a couple. While I'm at it i just wanna through out there that alot of open wather anglers use self inflating lifevests. they are lightweight and can be worn without hindering movement. thats an underused piece of safty equiptment on the ice.

Lewis Point Road.  There is a designated parking area for fisherman.  The lot fills up QUICK so if you plan on fishing that area get there semi early.  There were several issues last year at the point so please respect property owners when getting on and off the ice.
Take it for what it's worth

just spent an hr walking around big bay. talked to shaun that owns the parking lot....he had 97 paid cars there when i was. I'd estimate 150-200 people on the ice. i personally cut several holes. i found anywhere from 3 inches of straight black ice to 5 inches with 3 inches of white ice on top. there was no noise no popping. saw alot of fish being caught. some nice most small. One guy we sold bait to this morning had a nice pile of gills and 5 of the biggest pick's I've ever seen.

Any word on Lewis Pt ice being safe??
I was there at 8 AM this morning.  Both parking areas were full and I'd estimate that there were over 150 people out there...
  Most in a tight group on the first drop off.
  Chapmans park had about 60 people out there.
Edgewater had about 50 people out about 1/2 mile,  A dozen or so out of Jewell, One guy out from Colemans, Nobody at Godfrey Pt.  The ice is real sketchy there out from the launch.   Lots of pack ice and wet spots.
  Nobody out of Apps/  One guy sitting just inside of Willard Island at Bernhards bay, a dozen or so out of Tripps / Spruce Grove, nobody at Taft Bay, 20 or so people out of Constantia, and your typical Big Bay weekend zoo !   Over 200 people out there when I was there.
  This thaw will smooth things out nicely and refreeze everything nice and tight !
Probably be "creepers necessary" ice next week.

Lewis Point Ice ?    Snagger's post on 12/27 is all you need to know.

Fished Edgewater early this morning, 22' ice ok but still need to be careful. Iced 7 eyes but none bigger than 12" and one keeper yellow.  Marked quite a few fish but really had to work to make them commit. Even when they did not much of a hit, just felt some weight. Left early to do some scouting for tomorrow. A number of people I know fishing different areas reported only pin pike and no keepers.

Congrats on some really nice fish guys.

Just got back from Lewis Pt. A TON of people out there today and it took its toll on the ice. On my walk back in around 13:00 I decided to follow a worn path and not spud. Around the 18' mark on the break I heard cracking. Tried to get across quick but my right leg ended up going thru. I got lucky and hopped to safer ice but beware. It is dangerous.

I warned everyone I saw but would be surprised if nobody goes thru this evening.
