I got some counties for ya' where the FISHING is actually the important thing to do. Warren, Essex, Hamilton in NY. But, if you guys around here enjoy your 5 week ice-fishing season on waters with no game fish, I wish you many hours of enjoyment either trying to fish or just talking about it.

Shop - Rite has pretty good seafood dept. you can buy your fish at. TIGHT LINES!

I had a great time during our "5 week" ice fishing season. Even though there are no gamefish in the area. I will give him some credit, Shop-Rite does have a pretty good SEAFOOD department. Although I will venture to say that I am a little more satisfied with the SEAFOOD department at the A&P. It probably doesn't compare to all of the SEAFOOD that you can catch in the Adirondacks.
Here is a nice fish from a no game fish lake in Orange County, NY. TIGHT LINES!

Before Mr.DFuller is run through the mud a few times,please remember this site has over twenty five thousand members from all back grounds and walks of life with one common interest ice fishing. We are going to have our differences of opinions.
  Mr.DFuller I reside across the Hudson and just south of you in New Windsor,the Adirondacks are truly a beautiful part of this state ,but I firmly believe you have to attempt to make the best out of your situation in life unless you find joy in being miserable. I and others should try using the chat feature on this site so we do not take up space with no fishing related topics.
  But please with all due respect sir acknowledge that though the ice season may be short-even non existant some years as Hockey 12 photo shows we do have the chance at some large game fish.
   Hockey 12 I assume the photo is from Greenwood Lake one beautiful fish congrats.

Hey... Does Da Fuller brush guy have pickerel envy?

This season I did. I only caught a couple pickerel this year because the place I usually load up on them was closed to fishing this year. That place is simply loaded with pickerel and good-sized to, caught up to 23".

I think pickerel are one of the best eating fish around, and I just ate a good meal of it last night. Next winter will do a little more pickerel and pike fishing instead of all lake trout fishing. I got too one-tracked this winter.

you will be very happy with that reel...but if your buddy can get a orvis reel & stuff at a great deal ...  :thumbsup:..their stuff is great.....rio grand in 5 weight...see topher ..with other fly lines its best to go one more weight over the rods weight ..so it will load and turn over better for casting...rio grand is already 1.5 over  which ever weight the rod would be... so if you go with rio get it in 5 weight floating...foward weighted...color doesnt really matter....and those orvis flys are great  too... :thumbsup: trout leaders you can get any where same with the dry fly spray in the pump bottle....after that its just casting and knot tying... ;D

  selc. trout...dry fly line...you dont need wet line to nymph....i just let it sink after it makes its swing thru the water then i strip the line with 3 short strokes rest then repeat ...this makes the beadhead nymph act like a emerger....which is a fly in the stage of leaving the water to be come a dry fly...when you see trout   sipping flys off the surface  but you cant see the flys..and their just swimming with their heads just breaking the top...their hitting the emergers which are trying to get out of the water to become duns...trout love this time period...just like when the duns start to die and fall on the water in bunches...its show time..one time i was on the d when this happened and i couldnt nail a rise cause there was sooo many flys on the water the trout just had their pick...it was comical..but fun... :laugh:tell her i said thanks but i may have to grow it out and sell it to pay my taxes this year.... :laugh:

I found some selective trout 2 line on ebay fairly cheap and also some Rio Mainstream for a decent price (35 bucks).  The Ms. suggested to me about a trip for her and I to go down that way this Sunday (Sunday Drive) and to stop in a say hello


PS post 500 for me ;D ;D

gotta get the kitchen done up first, because of the construction, the whole house is destroyed-well kinda--we'll get you up here sometime--got a couple great private ponds to fish from the boat--no real good trout fishing though-just the areas that they stock and the rest of the areas we fish are all public (Lower woods, Belmont, Lackawanna State Park) maybe a little later in the spring when the river gets right You come up and we can drift the Mighty Susquehanna River for smallies and wallys and musky--got some good spots ;)

I gotta look up knots so I can figure out how to tie the leader to the flyline and tippet to the leader---this fly fishing stuff IS fun-so far-- ;D

what pound leader/tippet should I use--the leader material I got is 9' 4x-same diameter as 20 lb fluoro-did check out that site, but my knots that I tried from that site--I guess I need practice cuz I can't make them look right or even hold-- ::)might be the painkillers though :whistle: :cookoo: n  gonna keep trying--for the tippet should I use 4 lb or 6lb fluoro?

2 blocks from where I work :o--final tally 14 dead including the gunman numerous others injured--got another fly rod setup tonite--given to me--an old Conlon Fiberglass rod and reel setup--its older than I think all of us are--and I picked up a pack of those loop connections for the end of the fly line to leader..they are pretty slick-a pain to get started but easy to use--also what size tapered leaders should I get? both rods and 5/6 wt 8' long--I picked up a 9'-4x when I got the loop connection pack..will that be ok?

Title: Re: SOUTHERN N.Y. THREAD (L.I., WESTCHESTER, PUTNAM, DUTCHESS, SULLIVAN, ORANGE COUN
Post by: holehawg on Apr 11, 2009, 08:08 PM
depends...get 3 of each till ya see what your area's fish like...the D by me see's about 6 drift boats a day so the fish are pretty much fished over hard...i carry alot but thats because my strench of river is very fussy....the only thing thats gonna kill ya is hanging up flys on branchs and stuff in the beginning....dont worry about casting the length of the river...stop and slow up....fish ya way out slowly.. kneel on the bank & see whats happening first....fly fishing ain't  chucking & cranking like bass fishing....wait for a rise then hunt that fish...take a small minnow net and scoop the water ...see what they are eating ...dont laugh at this but i've matched many a hatch by looking at my front bumper on the dodge after crossing the callicoon bridge....you can never have too many adams...gold bead heads...hendricksons ...caddis...quill gordins...cahills...bl ue wing olives... prince nymphs.......  i think i bust off aleast 2 dozen flys a year.... ;)

went down to TFB's parents today for dinner, and checked the creek---got a great idea about matching the hatch...there are no fish in the creek other than what they will stock a week from Tuesday, but I waded out and was checking out the bugs--I matched a couple I caught to flies in my box--Quill Gordon's I believe...the creek isn't really that big and since they are stocked trout, I'll have my spinning rod along with the fly rod--gotta get practiced up----1 more week !!!!!!!!!

from our local paper.......
License fee Increases enacted: With many state agencies facing deficits, including the Division of Fish, Wildlife and Marine Resources in New York, fishermen, hunters and trappers will find buying licenses to pursue their recreation a more expensive proposition for the 2009-10 license year.

With the recent passage of the state budget, virtually all resident and nonresident licenses have increased in price.

Examples of the price changes for residents for many popular licenses are an increase in the Super Sportsman from $68 to $88; Sportsman from $37 to $47; fishing from $19 to $29; and bowhunting from $16 to $21.

Deer management permits, formerly free to many license-class holders, will now cost $10 for all but lifetime license holders. The license increases start Oct. 1.

Topher hope you had a great birthday, nice looking vest (as a friend says at least look like you know what you are doing) . I think you already found a great gift in your fishing buddy. (Helps with home improvement ,can cut your hair and likes to fish) Also seems to have a good sense of humor.
  Every one good fishing to all of you.

He had a bit of fun..has a hard time standing for long periods of time..and his eyesight isn't all that well, but he has the casting thing down..its now a matter of finding big enough bobbers for him to be able to see..and it will be easier for him to fish from the boat sitting down...

Here's half of my harvest from the stocked trout pool...

It's the same fish...managed 2 brookies today as the fish were all very line shy..caught the first one during a tan caddis hatch and it was feeding aggressively and took my fly...first one measured 13.25 inches....the second one pictured I got to rise on an Adams Parachute about 7:15 tonite down in the 9 Partners Creek by Binghams Restaurant..measured 10.5 inches..beginner's luck/common sense and Holehawg's tutoring are what I owe thanks to today..

hopefully going to get out again Tuesday nite after work...as long as I get to the fly shop to add to my collection of flies that have been snagged or destroyed by fish...have 3 trophy flies, 1 tan caddis fly from which I caught my first trout with, 1 adams that I used to catch #2 with, and the 3rd from my first brown trout that he destroyed the fly..or I did releasing the fly from its mouth...soon enough I will try again..

Glad to hear business is booming Holehawg..things are the same at the shop as well..It's not often that I have to work so hard that I want to crash in bed as soon as I get home...gotta take it while it's there ;)

Took my Pops out to Upper Woods on Saturday...what a circus..it was like a whole 3 ring circus rolled into 1 circle...I'll post the pics probably tomorrow nite, but as for now it's back to building a 3-D model castle for the 14 yr old in the house...

Hey guys.. been MIA ... working on the castle.. will have pics soon, G-man had the camera in his jacket pocket and now the camera is his locker. It turned out awesome, we put the whole base (2' by 3') up on stainless steel legs so that we could build an "underground" dungeon and gauntlet. The castle itself has two floors, all surrounded by the outer wall. Walker's castle project was the first to get a PERFECT SCORE!! They are keeping it as an entry to the Harford Fair.

Hey guys.. been MIA ... working on the castle.. will have pics soon, G-man had the camera in his jacket pocket and now the camera is his locker. It turned out awesome, we put the whole base (2' by 3') up on stainless steel legs so that we could build an "underground" dungeon and gauntlet. The castle itself has two floors, all surrounded by the outer wall. Walker's castle project was the first to get a PERFECT SCORE!! They are keeping it as an entry to the Harford Fair.

kool...i hope the g-man wins the whole she-bang....just might have to hit the fair this year....hey tfb is the old girl who thinks i'm cute still kicking... ;)2 :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

 ;) your admirer has an appt tomorrow for a color touch up.....the closest fly I can find to the one I saw was/is a peacock caddis..I hope to get back out tomorrow nite, as I took a nite off to rest and relax and do housework..I'm starting to get the hang of this flyfishing stuff, just in time for the walleye opener this weekend....
decisions, decisions......they are restocking that creek this next Thursday, so I hope to get a couple more limits before I start on the deep water/lake fishing

Guess that answers my question as to whether you'll be here for dinner ... good luck fishing, Baby  :-* I guess the boys and I can have fish sticks  :thumbsup:


BTW everyone thanks for the congrats on the castle project ... just the clarify.. the castle was Walker's project (the one with the fishing lure on his nose in the pics)... G-man used his camera to take pics of it before we turned it in. If he remembers to bring it home, we'll have pics posted tonite.

Here's the castle... G-man didn't take as many pics as I'd hoped (I was trying to make room in the car).. but here's a few. All of the rooms had a door that slid up (7 rooms + 2 "underground"), the middle pic shows the keep and the kitchen. The sides of the outer wall have a section that lifts out to see into the lower rooms. The last pic is of the "town" (hay thatched mini bird houses) and the well. We had a list of items it had to include, as per teacher instructions.

It earned a perfect score (along with his written essay as part of the grade) and is going to the local fair!!!

Good afternoon just wanted to ask everyone to read my post (Didymo found in Esopus over on Myfishfinder and visit the websites posted) . This invasive algae also known as Rock Snot has been found in the Esopus creek.
 In an off topic subject since this is the BS thread it looks like we are going to get hit in the wallet/pocket book again by the state. It seems the "big three" in Albany have the votes needed to pass the M.T.A. bailout ,this means fare increases plus a payroll tax and a few surcharges for those of us living in a twelve county area of Southeast NY. .
  Here are a few highlights of the bailout 1.$25.00 dollars surcharge on motor vehicle registrations. 2. a twentyfive to thirty percent increase in drivers license costs .3. a fifty cents per trip surcharge on taxi rides .4.a payroll tax of $3.40 per $1,000.00 earned.5.fare increases 10 percent this year,7.5 percent in 2011 and 7.5 percent in 2013.
  Even with all of this the M.T.A. will in my opinion will still have a budget short fall in 2013.

 Steve

It is official the M.T.A. bailout bill passed the payroll tax portion of bill is retroactive to March 1,2009, fare increases start July 1,2009 .
  Like Pooley stated there is no M.T.A. bus service in Rockland or Orange counties and the limited trains we have are run by NJ.Transit under a contract with the M.T.A..Only the local airport (Stewart in Orange county) is run by them and it has a limited number of carriers and flights.
   Holehawg I hear your complaint the city of Newburgh just north of my localation makes all plumbers by a license before they are allowed to work in the city limits. A electrician friend of mine is afraid they will apply this mentality to all tradesmen. He says let the county control licenses not each individual town-city.
   Anyone know what has happened to the spell check feature here and over on MFF ?

Speaking of Mother's Day... we checked out the "mystery location" today. They have dumped a dump truck load of topsoil at the end of the "makeshift ramp" ... so we will have to slide the boat a ways to get it into the water (nothing we haven't done before  :roflmao: ).... getting it IN won't be so bad, getting it back OUT will be another thing.  ::)

We just got back from picking night crawlers for me, made out really good, LOTS of nice big fat ones! Yes, I fish with worms like a girl!

Kept looking at me like "what the heck kind of dog is this anyway?!?"


She's now at a rehabilitation center that will "wild" her with other fawns, so that they can be released into the wild once they are sure they can care for themselves. The owner told me they take in as many as 40 fawns each year, so she will be part of quite a herd.

I tried everything I know to try to catch trout..at least I tried everything I have ever used that I had with me...first spot--1 bite, no fish..fished there 2+ hours..moved onto another spot about a mile upstream...ended up throwing a 1/12th oz gold Kastmaster and slow retrieve through the faster moving water----I have a new second favorite lure for trout (1st is anything fly related)  10 minutes and a limit later...5 beautiful rainbows were in the back of the truck and I was on my way home.....

Hey Topher... Missy and Leon came to get his haircut and even though he was still sick.. she made him dig out hostas anyway...poor guy... :roflmao: ...from the steps to the salon sign... GONE!!! Filled the entire bed of his pickup. By the end of summer we might have a bigger lawn.. yeah! more grass to mow!!  :clap:

I got all excited this morning when I saw the road kill in front of the house... I thought it was "Momma Kitty" (a stray cat that keeps having kittens at our house and tears the garbage apart all the time)... but it was only a bunny  :P oh well... I can hope......

hehe sorry about the bunny guts, Toph, but you have to admit that is funny as hell  :roflmao: :clap: :roflmao: :clap:

Any of y'all can come have a hosta diggin' up party... BRING THE BACKHOE... I'm trying to get rid of them. But don't get too excited about variety.. they are just the average plain green hosta type. I've been digging clumps out and putting them by the road with a free sign for the last 5 years since I bought the place.

here's the recipe from the archives..thanks again to YO1157 and pooley !

2 quarts of brandy. ( i use christian brothers-80 proof )
2 quarts of raspberries. ( pick them wild if you can )
rinse the berries, let dry, then crush them in a 1 gallon glass jar.
add brandy, cover, and let sit for 6 weeks or more. ( in the sun if possible )
after sitting, strain the mixture through a sieve or cheese cloth. then run through a wine cloth to clarify.
or
clarify using coffee filters. it will take awhile. replace filters as the dripping slows down.
melt 1/2 cups of sugar in 1/2 cup of water, using low heat.
add to brandy mixture and stir.
serve cold, it's better cold.

BTW, it's smooth, but packs a wallop! enjoy!

oh and if anyone wants a Boston Terrier that doesn't like other dogs and is Bi-polar let us know....TFB is missing about 1/4 of the 3 middle fingers on her left hand from the Boston fighting with Berkely this afternoon..she stepped in and the Boston backed off, but then went after her hand instead of the other dog...so the pork is for tomorrow night...got to go to Scranton and ate out instead...

Just checking in to wish every one a good and safe Memorial day weekend, to all the veterans thank you for your service.
     Topher enjoy the Heritage Lakers read through the tip up forum you may want to make some modifications to the tip ups. Some members have reported having the spool fall off since it is held on with a press fitted screw and not through bolted. The wood is unfinished and swells loosening the press fit.
    Also hope TFB's canine problem is not as serious as it sounds. I see the spell check feature is back. :clap: :clap:

I was ok with that, until she told me we had to keep him ALIVE for the 10 days  :-\

well, the term fishing is kinda out of date for me...I shall now refer to it as " hydro-therapy"..during today's session, I managed to catch the last rainbow trout in the local stream...and after that, I caught the biggest carp that I had ever caught before in my life :o...wasn't really expecting that one, as I caught them both on the same lure...the trout was a meager 9" and the carp measured a whopping....6"  :D...but the therapy session was good, got to get out and enjoy a beautiful day on the water--looking forward to Monday, getting out with TFB for the first time of the year !!

Well pooley, I'd take a 3rd in the 500...we decided to go out on the lake yesterday afternoon instead of this morning, so we loaded up quick and realized at the last moment that we didn't have any batteries for the camera, so no pictures ::)...and of course, when there isn't a camera, there are so many fish caught that you wouldn't believe it.......Walker,the oldest boy, set personal bests in the smallmouth and largemouth  categories with 2 huge smallies and a 3lb LM..and 1 rockbass...G-Man caught quite a few nice Pumpkinseeds and a couple LM and 1 perch, TFB with being wounded and all managed to catch 2 huge pumpkinseeds and and new PB bluegill just shy of 11" long and weighed 1 lb...but lucky me...took over the rockbass curse from TFB...I got to catch all of them--around 15 total on top of the 3 largemouth, 1 smallie, and 2 medium pickerels..not bad for a 4 1/2 hours out on the lake

sorry about your hand, and the dog TFB!

I do feel bad about the dog... despite the fact that he's a ignorant little jerk... because he is G-man's dog. I talked to him about putting him down BEFORE I showed him my hand and though sad, he agreed it was probably best. After he saw my hand, he was in total agreement. The bite to my middle finger went to the bone on each side and considering how much smaller his hands are, there's a good chance it would have taken that part of his finger off, had it been him. This is far from the first time he has attacked one of the other dogs and usually sticking a foot in between them will snap him out of it... but he's getting more aggressive each time.

Frankie will be proud though, they have conned me into letting them get a kitten once he's gone (couldn't get one before, the Boston has a deadly history with cats... and Walker's parakeet... and my bunny... :-\).

Glad to see some of you got out fishing over the holiday weekend. So true about having a great day when you forget or have dead batteries in the camera Topher.
   Sorry to hear about the dog ,but from what you have posted about his behavior I would say it is a wise decision.

I would have no problems with a cat as long as the boys take good care of it...clean up its messes, etc. etc.   I'll have to train it to be a mouser though ;)

A couple of Sufferns finest citizens. They actually live in my complex. They are real bad drinkers, rumor has it they found a bottle of rasberry brandy. You are going to laugh! We definitely have to bring this guy next year!

Thanks for the concern guys... my hand is doing ok... my middle finger is still sore on busy days when I have to use my hands a lot (I'd put it up to show ya, but I doubt you could see it from here  :roflmao:), the nail has started to grow back on the one that lost the nail...

Yes, we did get G-man's dog put to rest and buried, he's still pretty sad about it, but he does understand that it was necessary. It would have been much easier if we could have done it right after it happened, the kids started to "soften" during the 10 day quarantine period. The vet agreed with me about putting him down, that there was something not right with they he's been acting and it could progressively get worse.

We did get a kitty for Walker, but while I was at the humane society looking for kittens... I found a new love (sorry Topher)....

well, i didn't catch any keepers fluke fishing, just some shorts. i did catch a couple of sea robins, and a couple of skates were caught. we probably had 15 keepers on the boat. it was a great boat, with good friends, and lots of beer. the weather was great.

That was typed earlier this morning! I do have to give a shout out to YO who helped the wife out in a moment of need. A bunch of cars were broken in to in my complex. They were nice enough to not steal anything, but leave her door open and the battery died. YO came over and gave her a jump! It only cost me a family plan and a slim jim. As far as the  summer goes, I will be looking for work as my school is being closed and I am crap out of luck! Hoping a few things come through, if not then I will be doing some fishing!

Well, I think we are going to keep to simple names for now, unless something wild and crazy jumps into the picture later on.....

More importantly, next weekend we will be fishing Lake Huntington on either Saturday or Sunday, probably the latter and hopefully before the locals get up and get out the boats and jetskis for their summer activities...if there are any areas that you guys want me to specifically hit, let me know.....

And also, is there any more info or details as to the happenings on July 4th weekend for the possible Delaware trip....inquiring minds would like to know... ???



And last but not least, Happy Father's Day to all the Fathers out there !!! ;D

The wife and I did play one game in Lake George.a par 3 12 hole coarse. It was not an easy coarse ;D
I will be playing the next 2 Thursdays filling in for a buddy in his beer leage,I was hopping to play this Sat.
But I have to go to a funeral for my past Fire Chief. Being the Chief I have to be there plus he is a good friend.

Greetings everyone,
     First off congratulations Topher and Tfb ,also happy birthday Pooley. Just spent the last week in southern New Jersey (Ocean City) . The fishing was very slow only fish I saw being caught were fluke yesterday on minnows . Unfortunately for me I was using cut squid strips and Berkely Gulp minnows in chartreuse ,also the new Gulp Alive  in shrimp and peeler crab . Skunk city for me,but it was nice to get out fishing .
     Pooley awards would be nice just check with Rgfixit about site regulations. Cash prizes are a no go at the Oneida Lake gathering I attended everyone who wanted in on prizes brought an item for the prizes pool (Lures,jig pole ,etc.) that were divided up among the winners.

Well the Huntington trip was a success I think today.  I can see why the areas that we were successful fishing were as good as they were.  I found the ledges over by the fallen Gazebo, and we weren't off by much, but the areas over by the launch I landmarked some key areas with structure and holes/ledges..Over by the beer distributor, it was a deep weedy bottom with just shallow weeds/muck off the bottom...we can try that area, but we didn't mark /catch any fish there..I guess its one of those just drill holes and try for ice season...as for the backside of the lake, where the pickerel were mostly caught now has vegetation clear to the top surface of the water..I'm gonna print off a vague contour map of the lake and then scan it and post what I've found.....


as for the fishing, being the "free fishing days" in NY State, I took along a long time friend with me and we caught several medium bluegills/pumpkinseeds, 1 measley perch and 2 LM bass...no crappies, and no SM bass or even pickerel...I did get some pictures from today and when I get them downloaded, I will post..

boat traffic was light with only 3 other boats on the lake while we were out there, then about 11:15 some guy with one of those fancy bass boats decided that he needed to beat the crap out of his boat and made a couple laps within 100 feet of where we were fishing..he had the engine screaming (I think he had the trim off a bit) as it sounded like one of those lil rice burning Jap cars ;) it was ok though, we left shortly thereafter cuz my buddy had to be home by 1 ish


And again, Happy Birthday Pooley :tipup:

here's the pics from Sunday that I took:

the lone keeper of the day--

the next few pics, notice the calmness of the lake and then the little wave pools in the middle of them...bait pods :o :o  and notice the dock in the background....it right by where we all fished.. :)

and the last one from the backside of the lake...where we had the gathering and the first get together: :)

(https://www.iceshanty.com/ice_fishing/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi288.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fll174%2FKildato%2FPICT0036.jpg&hash=39ceb919574d394a440907bdba453d72)

I should have made the pics bigger, but oops....I am working on the map of the lake with structure markings and ledges and such so we know where they are for setting up...I can't list all the shore landmarks, but I will remember within a few feet out on the ice......

Evening all just wanted to inform everyone that there is a soft cover book published yearly that covers fishing in South East New York. That maps are rather crude but give you a starting point. Dick's and probably Gander mountain sell the book. Title is Southern New York Fishing Directory. (with the current year in front of name )

Gonna call pops to see if he's available to go out on the river for a boat ride to break in the big motor for the first time this year...

Holehawg..that little idea you have for out on the Big D..we can use my boat for that right? It's only a 14' aluminum..do we need bigger than that????? its got a gas motor and the trolling motor, anchor and the rest of it minus some cheapie rod holders...that might be the only thing needed to be upgraded...

As for the Erie Dearies, do you just slow troll them of slow retrieve on the reel???like I said, I never used them and can't find any info online about how... ??? :unsure:

almost the same hatches here..we have had sulfurs, Blus Winged Olives and the light cahills, and I had 1 lone Green Drake about 2 weeks ago on the window of the danger Ranger...he was a little late I thought, I should pack the flyrod with the boat, cuz I find myself saying every time we go out that I shoulda brought it ::)   I'll learn eventually.

The 4 smallies caught yesterday were all in the shallows feeding,(gotta love sight fishing) although with the river being low like it is, I wish I had 12-16 FOW to fish in...the deepest holes were only 8' or so....and we also were entertained by a feeding musky yesterday AM as well...we went after it but to no avail

  Holehawg sorry to hear about your cousin's shop.  Did not know I was fishing with celebrities back in February at Huntington, image Catherine Bach (Daisy Duke ) and the famous Babe Winklemen .
   Enjoy the remainder of the summer, and as Babe says good fishing to all of you.

Joe I'm with you I turned the big 50 this year ,,,, not being lazy but if I can drive , carry gear , beer , and a buddy that's the way I go :thumbsup:
When we go ice fishing there are plenty of 4 wheelers anyway so if I don't bring mine I hook up my sled to the hitch and hold on  ;D and try not to spill my beer lol :whistle: :clap:

Not on ski's but on ice sleds..  It's amazing what can happen on the ice when the bite stops the BBQ is going and the beer is tasting GOOOOOD and we get bored,,,and ATV's are involved someone usualy gets banged up one way or another ;D

back in college, we used to go to the mall parking lot with a small front wheel drive car, a round coaster sled, a small tire to fit in the sled, and a tow rope.....we used to have video of it...especially filming out the back window of the car with a cop right on our tail...they never did anything though, it was when the snow storm shut down the city---36" twice in a two week span will do that for ya....but as far as on the ice activities, I'm just getting started-3rd year coming up this season...I'm sure to make some memories like those sooner than later ;D

Well, the boys made out great at the fishing derby today..2 prizes each, with fish caught ranging from a 4.5" perch to a 11.25" bullhead  with several sunfish and perch mixed in between..Also caught was a 3" musky :o so they still are in that lake from many years ago ;D have to remember that for ice season....and we all got a good bit of sunburn today as well....I hope Pooley and Hockey12 make out good on Greenwood, It's a little too warm for the ice up here ;)

They bought the old Homowack lodge 3 years ago , and it's been down hill ever since.The place is so nasty I wouldn't let my x-wife stay there ;D
Check out Recordonline.com see Sundays paper. I'm blasting the town and state ;D
What are they going to do ,,,, fire me ?? :thumbsup: as fire chief I'm not bowing down to these people :callcops:

Timster,
   I wondered if that was you in the Record article today. In my opinion the property owner and group operating the illegal girls camp (no permit obtained to run camp) will deny the state's order until the end of this month.By that time the camps season will be over and the property owner will make repairs. Again just my opinion during the repairs/renovations an incident will happen resulting in you and your fellow firemen having to put your life's on the line to save the old hotel . Stick to your guns as they say these groups are all to quick to except government help when it benefits them and look the other way when things do not bring them some type of gain.

Good morning everyone,
   Hockey12 (Rob) congratulations being an elementary school teacher you have some idea what to expect in the early years, enjoy all the moments good and bad.
    Holehawg when I saw brokenline's post I thought of Jimmy Claude's pants. Also depending on the amount and size of the reflective tape you need try a hardware store most sell tape for marking your mailbox or driveway. You may know of this ATV dealer already ,but there is a dealership called Baer's in Honesdale. (Route 6 East- 330 Grandview Ave.
    Timster I see from yesterdays Times Herald Record one of Sullivan Counties Judges agreed with you and ordered the evacuation of the former Homowack Lodge.

Just make sure you have a foot or more of ice first a lot of weight between the kegs and quad. :laugh: :laugh: Topher that would be the day the D.E.C. will be out checking licenses and tip-ups for proper markings. Honestly officer it is the latest in bulk bait storage systems. ;) ;)

Thanks Tubby, and welcome to the SE NY BS thread !!! tubby is the guy that I told 2 years ago when I started working with him that I didn't think I could get into ice fishing ??? **censored** was I thinking ::) now a confirmed addict, he exposed me to rod building...again I said, I don't think I could get into that either....once again...well here's the first custom of many more to be made...it's a 31" Med Light jigging rod...cork handle, graphite blank, etc..if I make another ice rod, then this one will be used in the " Suffern Slammer"..

Well, here's a couple pics...

Thanks Tubby, and welcome to the SE NY BS thread !!! tubby is the guy that I told 2 years ago when I started working with him that I didn't think I could get into ice fishing ??? **censored** was I thinking ::) now a confirmed addict, he exposed me to rod building...again I said, I don't think I could get into that either....once again...well here's the first custom of many more to be made...it's a 31" Med Light jigging rod...cork handle, graphite blank, etc..if I make another ice rod, then this one will be used in the " Suffern Slammer"..

Well, here's a couple pics...

Hi Guys;  Thought I'd drop in just to say Hello!  Been doing my Summertime ocean thing......good fishing year out there.  While I'm here I want to pay my respects to all the 9/11 HEROS who gave us the strength to continue with our lives by displaying their courage, bravery and devotion on that horrible day and in the months that followed. NYPD - NYFD - EMT's - AND ALL THE OTHER FIRST RESPONDERS, Thank You for showing us the way Americans stand together in times of crisis.  NEVER, EVER FORGET !!

Looking forward to seeing you guys out on the ice this Winter !!

 Pooley- YO - Hockey 12 and the rest of the Suffern gang if the cabin offer does not work out try this motel. Fosterdale Motor Lodge at the corner of routes 17b and 52 about two miles or less from Lake Huntington. Get off of route 17 west bound at exit 104 take route 17b west. You will pass White Lake and Bethel Woods (1969 Woodstock site) the motor lodge is right at the intersection (Blinker Light). I think one of there units is an efficiency. You can also get meals at the Lakeside Cafe (across from lake access parking lot ) and one of Hole Hawg's haunts "Our Place on the Lake" .
   Here is a hyper link for the motor lodge's website   www.fmlodge.com (http://www.fmlodge.com)   I checked the link it works and I have the right web address.

Cameryn Grace and Sophia Elizabeth are on the top of the girl name chart....still picking boys.....but after we find out about the boy or girl, if we cannot decide on 1 name we are going to narrow it down to 5...give a number to each name and number my tip ups...whichever flag goes off first, I give TFB the number and that's the name we are going to use ;D

thanks Skeeter, I bid on one last night and forgot about it this morning and missed it !! She will just have to use one of my homemade custom rods instead ;)

They have them on there all of the time, although they are about to stop making them.  You should still have the opportunity to pick one up.  

Jeff

Greetings,
  Sure is a lot of sad news in the last few pages. A couple I work with lost their new born infant daughter last week.
     Topher did you look at the augers gas cap I know my snow blower has the gasoline's ratio printed on it. Also check the equipment forum a lot of people singing the praises of Amsoil product line. Some members are running a 100 to 1 mixture with no problems. You could also try contacting Jiffy.

Holehawg sounds like you may have some poachers in the area or rack hunters . I have to wonder  how many points the headless deer had, such a sad waist of natural resource. Your club should organize some type of patrol unit to watch over the property.
 Just another donkey's rectal opening or openings giving all us sportsmen and women a bad name. Please try to clam down I understand your anger but  do not want to see a help bail Holehawg out thread.

Holehawg(Joe) these types are not hunters in my book. Only qualify by definition of the word hunter. Unfortunately you can not seem to stop this type of behavior catch one group another pops up to replace it. Topher I have heard those stories and there are people who kill game animals so they can sell the head/antlers to others who want a wall mount. Some of these jokers charge so many dollars a point.

Got the same thing here where I hunt.  Everything has to be 3 on one side or more.  Couple of years ago we saw like 4 or 5 all different sizes and one really nice on but I swear I haven't seen even a doe this year in the fields and I know for a fact 1 group is killing everything and there has been a few found on the road with no heads.  All shot and only thing they take are the heads what a waste.  I get so anger because I am like you I would rather let them walk by me everyday and let them get big. And I am def. taking the meat that I shoot.  

I actually heard a shot the day before rifle season last year about 7 in the morning. Ridiculous.

Great people, was at the Cabelas store in Hamburg PA couple of weeks ago. Stay overnight in the parking lot in my motor home. Had a $30
coupon I got on line and used it on a new Promos hunting blind and bought a ton of ammo. What a store, I could live there....lol. The Gander

Hey Everyone,

  It's been a while since I posted here, skulked around a bunch and just wanted to say hi to all you Pa., Southern NY, Rockland, Sullivan, Orange, Westchester County folks, hope I didn't forget anyone oh What's up ICEBALLS and all the Long Island boys? Where is GAMALOT? has he figured out how to catch the Lakers in White Lake yet? :P  Looking forward to sharing LIES fish stories ::) and doing a few get-togethers ;) Good Luck and be safe especially you hunters out there.

icefishrny, what was your friend Ron,s last name, I've lived full time here for 25 yrs, must have known him. My wife was the Wolf Lake secretary for over 17 yrs, she knows everyone here. Do you have
a summer home up this way? Maybe we could get together fish/metal detect.

Evening everyone made a trip to Paramus,NJ. earlier today the small lake across from the former Nepera plant on route 17 in Harriman was skimmed over with ice so we are getting closer to the start of the season.
  IceBalls if the weather is alright for travel I will be at the Syracuse show on Friday night. Look for you and John there maybe I should private message RGfixit and see if he could have some type of member sign in at the Ice Shanty booth. Anyone else going to the show be sure to tell the different vendors how far you traveled to be at the show. If the attendance is good the vendor list should grow for coming years.

Hi timster, I guess you're talking about the three pics on Bass Pond at Wolf Lake? Yea, I just pulled my truck off the road before the spillway and snapped a few. Been good and cold as
you know, 11 degres will make some ice, now the main lake is skimmed over except a few open spots out in the middle. I haven't ventured out onto Bass Pond to drill a few holes. I leave
that to the young guys. ;D  I don't need to be first, but I do need to be SAFE!!! Do you fish up here?

Dan

Hi, Wolf Lake is a private lake in Sullivan County, a little over three hundred acres. Fishing was much better years ago, I've been here twenty five years.

Gassed up the old jiffy yesterday, started on the third pull, just needed one small adjustment to the carb, it was running a little too rich. Wish every engine I own ran that good
and was that easy to work on! Charger the battery on the vexilar last week, man I'm ready. Was 5 degres this AM, lake is about ready and now they're calling for snow, hope we are far enough west to miss most of it. Put the plow on the
truck just in case.

Danger Ranger's got 2 wheel drive....and knowing the road up to the lake, it's never fun with snow on the road...

report today that Belmont has 2-3 200yds out from the launch...if thats the case, I was fishing Lower Woods on 4-5" when Belmont was just skim ice last year.....will have jigging stuff in the truck tomorrow, but no tip ups due to the fact that I have no bait....will for next weekend though  ;)

Gassed up the old jiffy yesterday, started on the third pull, just needed one small adjustment to the carb, it was running a little too rich. Wish every engine I own ran that good
and was that easy to work on! Charger the battery on the vexilar last week, man I'm ready. Was 5 degres this AM, lake is about ready and now they're calling for snow, hope we are far enough west to miss most of it. Put the plow on the
truck just in case.

Good job on the prep work.....how much snow did you end up getting? 4-6 inches here in the city which of course means everything comes to a grinding halt.

Yesterday my brother and I tested out Morningside(since it is always the first to freeze)  It had like 5-6 inches of clear ice.  I have never experienced that before, it looked like open water.  To make a long story short, I was skunked and he got 2 really nice picks and like 7 small ones.


The ice was so clear I watched him pull one pickerel in through it.

I think it's too shallow to fish over that far, based on the open water scouting trip this summer....but if you go 50 ft on a diagonal toward the launch from the gazebo, there is a huge pocket in the weeds that had a nice sized LM cruising around in...have to see if I can find it when we fish there.....

Don't feel too sorry for him Holehawg, Topher still has plenty of hide left on him. Good thing too, we had to pick up the crib/changing table combo tonight, which was quite heavy. Of course, typical of Topher's luck, the stock boy they sent out to "help" him had a 20 lb weight restriction due to an injury  :roflmao: so he might as well have taken it out himself... good thing he's my tough guy :flex:

I know two guy's who tryed Highland lake today they said the back cove had 5 to 5 1/2 inches of good ice. There was two other guy's fishing by the beach. I'm going to hit it on Sat or my dad's lake at the camp

Shawn and Hole be careful out there if you go to Highland.   Last weekend the back cove was locked up good but there were still spots that were wide open and one once more then 50 yards from that cove.  I know it has been cold and should be better by this weekend just be careful.  I'd hate to see someone go through when I could have said something.   That being said I will probably be out on Highland on Saturday if all goes well. I should have a couple people with me.  Come over and stop by. If I am there the Dakota will be on the road.

If I go out I will let you know on here how it is.

Freezing rain here in Forestburgh and a solid coat of ice everywhere at 31 degrees. I think we are OK for now and the temps are supposed to remain below 32 most of this week with some lows in the teens so we are making ice.

My fingers are crossed for being on the ice when 2010 arrives.

Greetings I hope everyone had a good Christmas and want to wish you all a Happy New Year full of good fishing. Since we are all looking for safe ice thought I should post the phone number for Winding Hills Park ranger station (Orange County owned/operated) off of route 17k in the town of Montgomery. Diamond Lake is the only one of the three bodies of water in the park open to ice fishing contains yellow perch,large mouth bass and sunfish. Small lake maybe fifty acres in size yellow perch average eight to ten inches in length. The park is not to far from Tom's Bait Shop in Fair Oaks,NY. or Thruway Market in Walden,NY.(Live bait for tip ups)
 
 ranger station phone number (845-457-4918)  the main gate of the park closes at 4:45 pm believe they open at 8:00 am

Dooberhoopa I stopped by Winding Hills last Monday (12/21) on my way to Wurtsboro at that time the sign by main gate said Ice conditions unsafe use caution. So I do not know if they will let you on the ice. I would call the ranger station Diamond lake was almost completely frozen over the lower night time temperatures should help with ice formation . Today's winds will not help if there are still any open areas.
  If people are on Orange Lake winding Hills should be good to fish.

NY...the official announcement has not been made by the DEC, but if you search through the NY Ice Fishing page, there are a few different threads about it....PA has no such law as the 7 day bait, only possession of caught baitfish--purchased baitfish do not apply to the total allowed in possession

All rubber, 17 inches high, 1000 grams thinsulate, Scent Free and in perfect condition. I wear a size 8 1/2 and my feet are fine with a heavy sock once I get in them but the ankles are tough getting into because they are tight but just there. Probably be great for a kid with a 7 or 8 foot or a woman.

Any one needs them they can have them as long as I don't have to pay the freight to ship them. Come and get them or meet up with me some day at Big Pond and I'll bring them along.

I have a few pairs of nice boots that are too tight and I just can't toss them out so speak up if you have a young fellow or gal who can use them or you have size 8 feet.

Hi Gary,

If you still have those boots I'll take them, wife can use them when she goes out with me. Let me know, I'll be in Monticello Monday AM  and if you give me
directions I can come and get them. Need to regester my Argo at the Gov. center too. I'm retired so what ever day is best for you is fine.

We,re never gonna change the price of anything going up ,Icurrently fish in NJ NY PA AND VT IT DOES GET EXPENSIVE ,but think of the good times and friends you come across in the coarse of that license year and average it by the day it's all worth it .I'm a NJ resident and it just cost me $120. as a resident to fish and hunt and I'll hunt NY and possibly VT and if I get nothing it was still worth the time  and memories .

NY had to raise the price of everything. Our dimwit governor needed a new bullet proof limo and had to double the size of his security detail! Obama doesn't like him!

How is the fishing on Big Pond? Any decent perch in there?

Post by: Gamalot on Jan 03, 2010, 12:30 PM
Yes! Perch, Crappie, Pickerel and trout but I would never say it is great fishing.

Seems like the fish have a schedule on when they eat and if you happen to be there it can be great. There are many days up there when Skunk is the order for the entire day.

White lake has a good supply of nice perch and is usually a bit more productive.

Thanks. A lot of places seem to fish like that. Feast or famine. I usually head to Swinging Bridge and fish into the night for walleye when I'm down by White Lake. It's kind of an addiction.

Are there really Pike in White Lake?

Yesterday was not a good day on Big pond.  1 small trout and a few flags.....otherwise we had the wind from HELL.....lol   It was slow for everyone I think.....didnt see alot of action anywhere.  Also spoke with a local and he said the state stocked all small trout under 12" in there.  On the way back I stopped by swinging bridge res.  There was a green shanty out there....but the edges looked sketcky with water comming through the snow and the water is down probably 8-10 feet.  Spoke to a ranger there and he told me that they were catching alot of perch and crappie on morningside....said he even saw a guy with a keeper walleye.

We are having a heat wave over here. Temp just went up to 12* for the first time all day. Been snowing horizontal since last night and one place I am glad to not be at is on the ice.

I never mind the cold with the shanty and heater but I hate the wind and would really rather just stay home and deal with grumpy.

Safe to say we should have some great ice by thursday when the wind gets out of here.

I never heard of Pike in White Lake but I know there are some nice Lakers and Trout that rarely ever get caught in hard water.

A few guys came down last year from Otsego and tried to figure out how to get the Lakers. They went home skunked just like I normally do.

I am real close to Swinging Bridge but never fish there because all I like is trout.

Both the Mongaup falls and the Rio are subject to flow and level changes that could cause dangerous ice conditions. I am pretty sure both have been off limits to ice fishing for a long time.

The Eagles tend to concentrate where they find open water and little human activity and these two lakes are popular breeding grounds for them for that exact reason. I am not in agreement about them being "Lazy". Seems to me they have a pretty tough time making a living in the conditions they live in. Many people are very thrilled when they see our national bird flying over head and I can't think of a good reason to not appreciate their presence. They are, after all, Fisherman and trying to catch dinner just like us.

The Tip down that Topher gave me last year at our outing has been used on a regular basis. It works really well, but I don't catch a lot of fish with it. I have caught some fish on it but usually do better by jigging the hole when it goes off.
  It gets frustrating if I set it more than 10 yards away, cause the bite is off when I get to it. :(

Don't mean to butt in, I worked in a meat market 20 years ago and used to give away plenty of scraps of liver and chicken gizzards-when asked they always said they were for catfish, never heard of them for stripers!!!!!!!

hey everyone, I'm new here on the site but I'm from this area.. Ulster, Orange, Dutchess. I'm 22 years old, I live in Ulster and do most of my fishing local in these 3 counties. I love to hunt and fish, it's basically my life. I found this site about a week ago and it's great.
I've been out a few times to a small pond near my house and caught some small bass all jigging(I don't have tip ups as of right now, my uncle let someone else borrow MY stuff) I also got out yesterday to a lake in ulster county with some "homemade" tip ups Haha and jigging rods. We ended up doing pretty good with about 10 sunnies/bluegills, a yellow perch, and a 2.5 lb bass, all jigging besides the yellow perch.
Here's a pic of the 2.5 lber

I'm going to go check out another lake today so I'll post the results later.

There are tons of walleye in there but it's tough fishing. Lots of guys don't even go out until dark and then stay until the fish show up, which they often don't. But when they do it is an incredible hour of fishing and there are big ones around as well as lots of shorts. You don't need a quad, so far I do about the same if I walk 200 yards from the launch or ride off to some secret cove. Much of the shoreline is pretty predictable—rocky bottom that drops fast to 30 or 40 feet. Mostly we fish 15 to 30 feet but some guys go deeper. There's some decent perch in there too and if you hit it right you'll have steady action all day. Also there are allegedly hybrid bass of some sort and brown trout. Overall it's a tough lake and you have to put your time in but I like it because even though I'm after walleye I never really know what's going to be coming through the hole.

Anybody fish Rio?

Go back a few pages in this thread i believe some one posted about fishing Orange Lake maybe he can get you access in exchange for some type of favor on your part.
  Dooperhoopa there is a state boat launch for White lake off of roue 55 in Kauneonga Lake .the lake contains the same species of fish as the majority of waters here in south east NY. there also are trout including Lakers but they are hard to locate.

i have fished white lake as well and didnt really have any luck.

On a different note went fishing Saturday and not many flags, none for myself.  I caught a couple dink perch jigging.  But at the end of the day(as we are packing up)  two bald eagles fly overhead like 15 foot up and they dont just fly over they kind of hang out in the area for awhile.  Very cool.  Only one problem I was so interested in watching them I never grabbed my camera out of my pocket.

Eagles will steal your fish in a second. They hang around a lot these days sometimes only twenty feet away hoping someone will toss up a pickerel. Don't know if it's legal to give them fish though.

It is Gamalot for Gary & Mary plus my last name.

White Lake sure could be a good place to fish if any of us took the time to learn the ropes there. Every year they have the King of the Ice contest there and lots of good fish are caught. Most are scally critters, perch and pickerel and a few decent trout. The contest is a complete zoo but fun for some I guess.
You can drive your ATV or snow machine but be 100% legal for sure.
I rarely ever hear of Lakers being iced but some nice browns do come up now and then. I think it is a simple matter of time and effort to find the tricks and hit the right spots.
I don't know about the rest of us but ice fishing is hit and miss every time I go. If you fish for any species and are happy to just catch anything then you can be fine. Targeting a specific fish like trout, lakers or Eyes can be a pretty tough way to go. I do it all the time and don't care that I get skunked allot. No offense to any one here but I would rather stay home and warm than to catch pickerel and pan fish all day long. I never caught a Laker or Eye through the ice but would be happy to give it a go.

I live real close to Rio and Swinging Bridge but never fish either. White Lake is 10 miles from me and worth a try on a day when the winds don't blow us off.
It sure would be nice to hear some accurate ice reports for Swinging bridge and White lake because just 3 weeks ago neither were ready.

Gamalot sorry about the user name mix up, the info. you posted is about the same I have heard about White Lake.
  Dooberhoopa if you looking to catch trout give Blue Lake in Sterling Forest a try as I posted earlier there may also be some hold over walleye from when Sterling Forest was Private property. Lake Huntington in the Western Sullivan County hamlet of the same name also contains trout.
   I agree with Gamalot regardless  of the water body you have to put your time in to find fish location and what usually works to get them to bite. Big Pond in Delware County by the hamlet of Turnwwod also contains trout as Gamalot has posted here on I.S. this lake can be hit or Miss as far as action. Big Pond is also rather isolated so go with someone for your safety. I not sure you can get cell phone service if you needed to make a call for what ever reason. There is a local program to stock walleye in Morningside Lake in Hurleyville how many and what size are in the lake I do not know only heard of this program last year

I know swinging bridge has em :)  It was tough fishing both jigs and tipups ..no keepers and only a couple which were quickly released.. very small but a good sign for me anyway, seeing is believing 8)  by the way at least 8 inches ice probably over 12 inches by now. glta

I had a great time during our "5 week" ice fishing season. Even though there are no gamefish in the area. I will give him some credit, Shop-Rite does have a pretty good SEAFOOD department. Although I will venture to say that I am a little more satisfied with the SEAFOOD department at the A&P. It probably doesn't compare to all of the SEAFOOD that you can catch in the Adirondacks.
Here is a nice fish from a no game fish lake in Orange County, NY. TIGHT LINES!

question for greenwood lake ice fishing, if i only have a new york state fishing license, can i park on the jersey side and fish jersey side or must i need a jersey license for entering onto the ice? also , is general rules 5 fishing devices total? meaning up to  4 tipups and one handline(jigging rod)?   thanks ahead

The DEC officier didn't say......and I didn't ask....unfortunately. I would think that they would have a hard time surviving the summer since the max depth is only 10 feet.......seems like a waste

My local bait supplier has no bait for the last week and a half. Evidently a supplier was shut down by DEC causing all these problems affecting more than a few shops.

Anyone got the number to the Folks running Harriman at Tiorati? Always slow to green flag these lakes. I've been on some local lakes the last three weeks.

Now how do we fish Nowahunta? I don't recall any parking

The best I can learn now is the bait here come from Butternut Creek Bait out of Pa. and they have no problems with a delivery planned for Thursday.

I don't know where other shops buy their bait from but in this part of NY we are just over the PA & NJ borders. It might just be an isolated incident of a supplier not getting certified properly and being shut down by the state.

I doubt a place like Gander depends very heavily on bait sales and probably won't go out of their way to find another supplier in a pinch. Local mom and pop shops that depend on bait will jump through hoops to keep us fishing and their business alive.

Try Tom's bait shop in Fair Oaks, 733-4642.

Thanks. Great little shop. Been using him for years. Always fresh and healthy. I'm all for keeping the little guy chuggin along. Nothing like getting out of my car walking 10 steps get my bait and off I go.

Gander is a fiasco. I dislike that unorganized place. Here's how it rolls, funny but true. Find a parking space, spend some time looking for a worker to help you count out your bait order. Wait some more when he's counting out exactly 48 fish . Wait in line. Go to pay and they can't find the barcode to ring the order, cashier uses intercom to page worker. Worker finally comes with info. Leave 20 minutes later.

The guy in Callicoon told me that he gets his bait from a distributor in PA who gets their bait from a farm in Arkansas. The PA distributor allegedly supplies most of the local shops. Don't know if that's 100 percent accurate but that is what I was told. Maybe the Arkansas operation didn't pass inspection?

There used to be a guy down in Barryville who trapped bait locally and sold it from a shed next to his house. He had the best minnows by far but I heard he couldn't get certified.

I e-mailed the DEC about having my pond certified but they did not respond. Does anybody know what it takes to get NYS bait certification? Does it cost a fortune?

This is a great event that is in direct conflict with another great event held on Morningside lake in Hurleyville,NY the same day. Both of these contests center the attention around getting the kids involved in icefishing! I wish they could hold these 2 contests on different days.

The Hurleyville Fire Dept. and Town of Fallsburgh Youth Commission will hold its 22nd annual Ice Fishing contest on Morningside Lake Hurleyville, NY on February 13th 2010. Fishing 7am to 3pm   $5 for Adults,  ages 14 and under free. Trophies and Prizes. Special Firemens contest.Eveyone is invited back to the Firehouse after this event for a feast like you read about!  It's worth it for the fish cakes alone!

I am torn between the two.......Which one are you going to and why?? I'm leaning towards the Morningside event because of the possibility of landing a 5+ pound Walleye or decent Pickerel. For the jigger the Perch, Sunfish, and Crappie action can be very good at times.
I will see you there.....

Good morning gang, Reelemin if you have young children go to Morningside they gave every child who caught a fish a prize years ago. I'm assuming they still do and if your child's fish is among the top three in the different prize categories they also receive a trophy.

Hello everybody! Haven't been here in a while. Getting ready for my first outing this season. Going to hit Highland and/or Swingingbridge on Sat. Does anyone know if bait shop in Liberty is still open? I tried to call there but the # is disconnected :(. Are there any other places in the area that open early?


Hey MaxT, If you add your location to your profile we will know which direction you are coming from.

I don't know if the liberty bait shop is still there. The old Agway in Liberty has bait and the farm market on 17B just a ways past the raceway has bait but none open super early, 8AM I think. I usually get mine the evening before if I want to get an early start.

Thanks Gary. I'm coming from NJ and won't be there till 8-9pm tonight. So being that they all close around 5-6pm I'll have to get my bait in the morning.

Hammer morningside can be tough but if you hit it right it is pretty nice.  Most people like to fish the back half of the lake.  Anywhere out there.  You have to be there earlier because it can fill up sometimes.  Park right by the little building they have there and walk on.  The area by the swingset can be tricky sometimes near the edge. 

Not sure where you are coming from or if you need directions but here they are from Sparrowbush, forestburgh,etc .  Follow route 42 north.  At the blinking light in Monticello make the right.  Go through the first light and make the next left.  Take that straight for like 10 miles (really roughly).  You will eventually see a sign that says Hurleyville with a road veering off to the left, take this.  Follow this road till you get to a 4 way red light with what looks like open fields in front of you.  Make that right.  The
