 Greensider ,you are welcome understand your feelings. There are a few lakes/bodies of water with the same or similar names in New York state. Near lake Superior in the Town of Bethel ,NY. therein a privately owned lake named Black lake I know there is also a Black Lake somewhere in upstate NY.

Subway4x4 thankyou for the update on the Hurleyville FD contest . Did you think to pass this information onto Moderator Raquettedacker so he can update the Contests/Derbys thread found near top of the NY. General forum/board.
Also please check your personal message in-box sent you some information on the Hurleyville and Lake Superior contests.

 I know I'm crazy. I'm holding out hope. I think the conservation club should have a pool on wether the contest will happen or not.
A couple nice browns from shore  and only short eyes on the river yesterday. Even if there was ice I think I'd still be on the river this Saturday(which is where I'll be).

Morningside this afternoon. 2 1/2 ó 3Ē. Shoreline weak, one boot went through not over boot height. Iíve fished ice of that thickness alot with full confidence. This ice not, felt it was borderline. Didnít go far at all or stay long. The feel and sound while walking or drilling just wasnít right. A couple pale sickly looking perch and I was out of there. 🍻

 Good evening Jiignut thank you for the report on ice conditions at Morningside and the photo of the lake.  Jghunter best to you and everyone else who maybe in your party at the Lake Superior contest . Given the higher entry fee as compared to other area contest the organizers expect a smaller crowd then what turns out for King of the Ice and current ice conditions will be good for whatever number of people enter the contest. May this assumption be correct and everyone stay on top of the ice.

A friendly reminder the Mahogany Ridge hunting and fishing club contest and pig roast is scheduled for Saturday feb.17 TH. If the lake is not safe to ice fish they still hold the pig roast. SO if you like roast pork and at least want to discuss ice fishing with other people this event maybe for you. Information on this contest can be found in the Derbys/tournaments thread maintained by moderator Raqueetdacker and found near the top of the NY. General Forum.. Also if you go to page (7) of this thread in a post by Hardwater diehard you will find info. on this contest.

Best wished to all planning to fish this weekend may you have safe travel and good day/days on the ice.

The river was beautiful. Moving at a good clip but we managed a few Saturday and got off right before the storm.  Not used to boat fishing the river anymore.  Should have put gas motor on! One Keeper yesterday from shore. Even with the colder temps, the snow is going to make things that much more dangerous with what little ice is left.  It's hard to take When you can remember the days of ice fishing during deer season if your tags where filled!

Well nobody fell in lake Superior lol. Ice was about 3 1/2" down to 2 1/2" by day end. I left a little early thought edges would be done but not bad. U could feel ice flex a little and waves in the holes. I got about 7 perch biggest 11" 5 bluegill one bass and one pickerel fishing right of ramp. I left a hour early 23" pickerel was winning and about a 13" perch and a huge crappie around 15".  Not sure of final results. Maybe 50 guys on ice. .they took some chance having that contest but all worked out.

Jghunter thank you for the report from the Lake Superior contest . Looks like i was correct about there being a low number of entrants realize this Winter's warmer weather also kept people away from the lake.
Glad you attended and got into some fish.
