Can't tell you how much it means to me to read that thread.  Can't get up there much anymore since getting married, building a house and having kids. Live ice fishing up there through the stories from you locals. And have to admit I'm jealous. Oldest is getting to the point of coming up for a weekend.  Rolling a bobber and jigging for some wall eyes. Keep the stories coming!!

Drove the whole northshore tonight, pray for 40mph west winds, certain areas really need too be crushed and destroyed, from the beach/North bay too Godfrey the lake is solid rotten ice sheets and broken up candled ice with big open water spots, it looks like the ice extends over too Lewis point area, from Godfrey too Taft bay its wide open, the spruce grove sunset bay area is rotten ice with open water spots, out of constantia, theres a big stripe of open water inside of little Island rapping around from the creek surrounded by rotten ice, its open water on other side of long island as far as eye can see too atleast wantry island area. If we have a lock up as is, the best ice this time will be the middle, not the west or east ends. Exactly opposite of the way it was before it went south.

Post by: reeleyz on Jan 26, 2017, 05:28 AM
Looks like 10 - 25 MPH West winds for the next 2 days so it will probably go.

Call me crazy but I would rather see that 3" of junk freeze up and build than have it all blow out. If it all blows out I am not sure you will get much if anything back.

The best thing that can happen now is all the local NY Ice gets blow up good and start from scratch. As much as we all love the sport and rather be fishing, the reality is the refrozen bad Ice will never be GOOD ice. Id rather wait and fish on 4 inches of new black ice, instead of 10-12 ices of half and half ice. The resent loss of two of our brothers has shaken a lot of us, as it should. Its unfortunate without doubt, but its also brought out both the worst and best of us. Emotions have been high understandingly, pointing fingers at people does nothing good. None of us were there and will never know what took place on Sandy Pond. The reality is, its a sport that comes with much danger. Time to move on but never forget our brothers.

Well, if the forcast is correct and the winds come up, looks like you'll get a fresh start.  Need some serious cold and no snow to get a good ice sheet going.  Good luck guys.
We should be in really good shape up here by mid next week.  :icefish:

I had to look at my log. That year my first trip mid-lake on the sled was 2/16 and we made it to the end of March. There were a few days below zero at the end of January though.

That was the year wheelers were falling in cracks left and right.  Looking at forecast after tomorrow it's going to get cold.  Lake can't be that warm.  I think we set up quick once we get that first inch.  Driving through Bernhard's bay this a.m. there was alot of ice still out there.  Not sure if it blew open more today.

If your predictions hold true, according to 2013, we will see ice time on Oneida. I remember a similar season as this winter.

my 2013 info is locked up in my broken external hard drive, its killing me too not look back

That was the year we started in North Bay on 1/8. Then that ice got bad, then it froze up most of the lake by the end of January. Then it got a little sketchy again until the middle of February. After that we fished everywhere for almost a month. Just before the walleye close it started getting sketchy mid-lake but the East end was good.

I would take that year any day. The walleye bite was on fire.

You are right s10xr...Shack and all the mid-lake shoals are way overrated...lot's of structure , but no fish ;)


I just looked at some notes...(2012/2013 season)     some of you might remember photo's  I posted of my first ever 50 fish ice fishing limit of Oneida Jumbo Yellow Perch..well, it was that year on March 9 2013  ;D

(I think Fred filet limited out on Perch the next day too !)

reeleyz,  Perch bite was great too....hope this year ends up like that year , with a hot walleye and perch bite during most of  Feb. and   March...that will kind of make up for the lousy star we've had with poor conditions and an inconsistent bite so far this season.
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: Rugburn on Jan 27, 2017, 06:58 AM
 South of Oneida in places with some elevation the ice didn't break up, but sure did break down. On average we had around 8"/10" of pretty good ice before the warm up. We're at 32.4 F this morning with temps dropping tonight and staying that way for several days and nights. Lot of derbies have been postponed. My hope is to go out and check conditions Sunday morning after a good 36 hours below freezing. Had a pretty good perch bite going on until mother nature tossed me out. Stay safe, smile and enjoy what we get!  ;D

If you fellas have good safe ice in the next few weeks, watch out for the creek areas , there's a ton of water runoff from the melt ,rain, just look at all the wet to flooded areas, the Oneida Lake watershed north of the lake is just full of water. Be watchful.

Gander has the predator suit not sure if it's the same as hardwater suit. The hardwater suite is great, warm and comfortable. Worth every penny

Thanks everyone.  I'll take a ride to Gander and check them out.  The Guardian might be the one for me.  I don't want a lot of insulation.

I love my Stryker Climate bibs racer...they have removeable, zip out/ zip in insulation which is a nice feature...check them out before you decide on a pair.Got them last year , so far so good, well made, loaded with features, and the inseam length is totally adjustable for a proper fit.

I currently have a Clam blue color suit.  I can't stand all the foam in the seat and knees.  It gets too warm.  I'm always in the shanty and always have the heater on.  I've only worn the coat once this year on the walk out and then hung it up in the shanty. 

Choo Choo. I'll check those out.  This is why I want to see them before buying.

Post by: choo choo on Jan 27, 2017, 05:56 PM
Yes, it w fun.

 It is a good idea to take some basic notes after every fishing trip....the seasons and fishing trips tend to fade away and blend together with time.

 Some fishing trips and seasons do stand out for one reason or another.

Take notes, it's always fun to look back and see patterns and  stuff you completely forgot about.

 I think a lot of guy's  take fishing trip notes...we all take a lot more pictures now a days, but the notes can be more important for future trips.
I wish I would have started taking notes when I was a teenager.

Racer, I have the Frabil jacket and bibs, I too wear the jacket for the trek out and hang it once I'm set up in my office. A very warm suit, I only wear under armor clothing. I will be buying some sort of ice flotation suit for KP Jr and myself next season. We will be wearing our auto inflating life vests for the rest of this season.😉

I have the Clam blue bibs also and do like them, but they were getting worn out . I Wanted to upgrade to a floating pair of bibs, and decided on the Strykers.
Just wanted to add that the Stryker Climate bibs are very warm and maybe a wee bit bulky in the legs, even without the insulation zipped in, but that is because of the floatation sewed in. Best to do what you plan on doing, try them on for yourself.

KP, someone posted that great link about Lake ice , how it candles and weakens in different stages etc. a few days ago on the Oneida site that is gone now .The last paragraph of that link they did tests, recommends strongly NOT to use inflateable life vests for ice fishing. It could restrict your breathing as it can inflate and wedge into the hole you just created while breaking through. and you would have to deflate the vest to free yourself in some cases. I think reeleyz spotted that paragraph too, and was as surprised as I was .

www.lakeice.squarespac e.com/candled-ice   I think this is the site.
the last paragraph, sorry ,I don't know if this is a direct link..i don't how to bring properly bring another link from one site to another

It is the one FFP posted. I actually wore a regular life vest my first trip this year. I am used to wearing a vest over my ice suit in the boat when it's cold. It not really noticeable.

And my next suit will be a striker. I have an Artic Armor now and it's not bad but it does not breath well. So I end up taking the jacket off on long walks and that defeats the purpose!

the kidding part was not intended for You Steve. More so for me, that I missed that part. It's all good. I did go online and found that the co2 cartridges won't  inflate properly in extreme cold. May do what Reeleyz did with summer life vest for now. Float suits for next season!!

Hey no problem KP...Your plan b sounds good.
 


.Like they say when they sign off every night on Weather Underground----  "together, we know more "   ;)


Just realized with your new info,........... that inflateable vests have 2 strikes against them for ice fishing1)- they could be bad in average cold weather as mentioned if they did inflate...., 2)  in extreme cold they might not inflate- double bad whammy.

Yup.  That is the link I posted up; and the reason for not wearing an inflatable was as stated by choo choo from the article.  Surprised me as well.  Years ago, I got an education on late, rotting, ice, while Crappie fishing.

I have the guardian bibs.  So far plenty warm.  Going to get the coat next.  Doesn't need to be to heavy.  I don't wear a coat enough to justify a real warm one.  I like the additional safety but it's not a priority to me.  If you use a lil common sense and a spud bar should never worry about swimming.

I have the climate jacket and the original run of lake effect pants, it's nice that they have floatation assist , but I bought them because it's the warmest thing I have ever had on my skinny butt , the jacket has vents and a removable liner ,  i only wear a T shirt and light sweat shirt under it and jeans under the pants , i think I'm on my 3rd year and no signs of any wear , so far I'm very pleased , but there are other very nice out fits available , plus a spud should be part of everyone's arsenal along with picks and some extra rope and creepers just an old farts .02

picks were a definite in that situation. That machine, was a Wilcraft machine, I believe. It's designed to self retrieve itself from the water in the event it breaks through  the ice.

Drove the whole northshore tonight, pray for 40mph west winds, certain areas really need too be crushed and destroyed, from the beach/North bay too Godfrey the lake is solid rotten ice sheets and broken up candled ice with big open water spots, it looks like the ice extends over too Lewis point area, from Godfrey too Taft bay its wide open, the spruce grove sunset bay area is rotten ice with open water spots, out of constantia, theres a big stripe of open water inside of little Island rapping around from the creek surrounded by rotten ice, its open water on other side of long island as far as eye can see too atleast wantry island area. If we have a lock up as is, the best ice this time will be the middle, not the west or east ends. Exactly opposite of the way it was before it went south.

Thanks for the report shane

so with this downtime of no fishing ( for me at least ) i just noticed while staring at my gear something strange on my auger. went in for a closer look, and one blade was hanging wierd, looked even closer and noticed the little freaking bolt/screw was working itself loose. so after tightening them back down on both blades i feel glad that i caught and fixed problem, cuz i doubt i would have cut one hole next time out. anyways just a heads up for others to think of looking at.

so with this downtime of no fishing ( for me at least ) i just noticed while staring at my gear something strange on my auger. went in for a closer look, and one blade was hanging wierd, looked even closer and noticed the little freaking bolt/screw was working itself loose. so after tightening them back down on both blades i feel glad that i caught and fixed problem, cuz i doubt i would have cut one hole next time out. anyways just a heads up for others to think of looking at.

I've seen that happen.  I caught it on the ice and just got itnsnug enough to cut with

Good luck wherever you decide to fish Fred filet and Bobby Deadeyez....hopefully, Oneida locks up completely and starts building soon.

It must be tough for you local Oneida lovers to drive by the "ole girl" every day , and see the poor ice, open water conditions  ,right in the middle of ice season.

if we have 4" we will be fine as long as its good ice and the whole lake is locked.  its only a temp warm up then back to cold.  I dont mind some standing water on top of the ice and now the weather channel is saying that were going to be below freezing both nights and its not going to hit 40.  so its going to be fine.

Punxatawney Phil will be mia tomorrow...I really did laugh out loud this evening when the local Binghamton  Weatherman, Mick D. ( Fox 40) said during his weather segment at 6 pm today, that he was headed down to Pennsy tonight to kidnap the woodchuck , returning to Binghamton tomorrow, then dispatching it, stuffing and baking it for  Super Bowl Snacks Sunday... he said"It tastes like chicken".. the guy is unreal some evenings.
Mick also said "if any of you out there have any good recipe's, write them down on a 20 dollar bill , and send them to the station in care of me"...he's a riot some nights.

Could you guy's imagine Wayne Mahar or Jim Teske saying that stuff while doing the Syracuse weather?.

This snow isn't helping but as much as everyone tries to analyze the way she freezes sometimes she surprises you. I just saw a old post on Facebook of the legion poker run in 2013.  I fished the beach that a.m..  went and rode on dirt.  Next weekend we went to quinte so that would of been the sixth or so.  Main lake was still a no go.   The following weekend I was out deep with the sled.   So that put it around the 15th or so.  I think Bruce said that year he was on the 16th.  The next few weeks after that rocked.  I keep saying we're going to have a repeat.  Winter is far from over but it does suck we missed most of January.

I'm optimistic as well S10. I'm holding my breath to see what the webcam shows this morning, each day this week there's been just a little more ice. If it locks up today/tomorrow, I think your estimate will be right on. And I'll be there to race to the middle!  ;D

Cornell researchers are saying by the end of the century  Oneida Lake will likely be warmer by 6 degrees and this will affect
the oxygen levels in the deeper parts not good for cold water fish and such,but mainly effecting ice formation as well,
Not good for our younger generations to look forward too,still have my fingers crossed to walk out and jig up a couple walleye this yr

I liked shanty when it was about fishing, having a good time and keeping other anglers informed of conditions for safety reasons.  These days it's more like a middle school cafeteria with the drama and trash talk.  Anyone of us would engage one another in conversation and help each other on the ice in a heartbeat. It seems as if these cyber walls make us forget about what we are here for.

I agree.  Although I'd like to think if there was more safe ice around we'd all be fishing more and be in better moods.  Things can still change around weather wise, its still only 1st week of February.

Post by: reeleyz on Feb 05, 2017, 12:09 PM
low 40's tuesday almost 50 on wensday high winds put a fork in it,, it's done

To be honest I think that warm up is needed. It will soften up any snow on the ice and then there is a decent freeze after that. We might not get to the middle but maybe we can back on some spots the we were on a few weeks ago.

took a walk around big bay this morning with hopes of fishing for the day. "NOT" !!!!! I cut around 15 to 18 holes. there's about 8" of snow followed by 6" of slush. there's 8 to 10" of ice, but the top 6 to 8" is rotten, candled, chunks when you cut it ice !!! hightailed it back to shore, and am currently putting my hardwater gear away for the season !! it's not worth my life !! it doesn't matter how cold it's going to get. rotten ice stays rotten ice !! the days are getting longer, and the angle of the sun is getting higher. you may be able to get on some fresh ice after this warm up, and freeze, but I would walk softly, and use your spud !!!   Sully...

It really didn't have anything to do with Oneida but I digress.

I am home sick as a dog today so I was looking back at some old posts from a few years ago. There is so much great info in those old posts. If someone wanted to learn Oneida, the information is all right here at your fingertips.

Locations, lures, techniques. Not that it is very useful this year but it's there when someone needs it. That stuff doesn't need to be rehashed.

Now I really digress...  ;D

nothing personal, but I fished the beach tuesday and today and didn't find any ice that was 12".......where I was (23 ft.) the ice was 6" max.....it was good solid ice mind you but I spudded my way out for safety's sake....there is a massive field of shove ice at the 16 fow range and beyond.....nothing that can't be traversed but with  this report there will be a bombardment of machines........lets use our heads folks....I know it has been a lousy ice season so far but lets let calmer heads prevail.......the beach hasn't been fully explored yet so error on the side of caution.....only a handful of guys have been out.....fishing is ok by the way....now eyes for me but a few nice perch....would think the weekend will be crowded for sure

The ice on the East end can move very quickly if the winds change in the wrong direction.   The ice is thin this year and open or gone in large areas down the lake.  The ice can easily move around.  We found ourselves on the wrong side of a wide open crack one year when the ice shoved across the lake down from where we were fishing.  We also found our shore ice gone another year when the ice moved out and we had to skim our sled over open water to get in.   So when the shore ice is bad and not locked tight you can think your OK until the unthinkable happens.  Been there, done that not fun.  Don't get false  security.

Just spoke to a fisherman that was out to Lewis, said ice was 8"-12" east of the point and lots of guys out. Wondering if anyone has been out to Edgewater and what the conditions were.

There will be fishable ice next weekend. The forecast looks okay so we shouldn't lose any ice.

It's going to snow pretty good so we won't gain any ice either.

The ice changes in every direction out there right now. Yesterday I made multiple moves and found variations in ice thickness and hardness. I would only hope the ice is fishable for everyone from now till last ice, but, I'm not going to make predictions. It's been a strange winter for making good solid ice. Be safe and spud, spud, spud!!!

I posted this on the conditions page yesterday.

2/12/17 Fished out from Edge Water (North Bay) from 9:00-12:00,  Used my 4 Wheeler after fishing there yesterday and finding 8-10 inches of ice.  Caught mainly white perch, but did get a couple of good sized striped ones and a few usized walleye that were returned to the lake.

On Saturday I started by checking out Three Mile Bay. Parked at the car top boat launch and walk south.  Ice was not good there.  One hit with my spud and it went through when I had gone passed  the shallow water markers.  I did not fish at Three Mile at all.

My family has a house in Constantia. I have pretty much given up the idea of fishing my spots this year. I would be surprised if it is safe this year. Last time I was up, the spud went through on 1 hit with little effort.

I fished Lewis point today, there was alot of ice heaves off the point. A few sleds and wheelers out.  I did not find any bad spots, but I am sure they are there.  Ice was varied between 6 and 10 inches. I did not do well as usual when I fish Oneida. Just can't get anything to take. There were quite a few lookers on the sonar. Around me there were a few perch and small eyes taken. We were in 25fow. The drag was a heart attack waiting to happen.......

Post by: Fishin-Mission on Feb 17, 2017, 09:06 AM
I doubt anyone will be fishing out of a boat on Oneida Lake during February.  Even with the mild temperatures it will not be enough to melt the ice.  Mother Nature will likely mess it all up, no safe ice and yet no open water to fish Oneida.
I am hopeful we will have safe ice at the East end of Oneida until the end of February.  Remember snow insolates the ice from both freezing better and thawing out, unless we get a lot of rain it is not likely the ice will deteriorate on Oneida before the end of Feb.  It was  the heavy rain and 50 degree temperatures that rotten the ice back in January.

PRIVATE ACCESS and said to my buddy look at all the people out of Lewis, you no there is lot of
illegal parking going on over there and I bet tickets will be issued WELL I hope they were
don't they realize they are giving all of us HARD WATER NUTS a bad name.
IS A FEW FISH REALLY WORTH IT TOO DISRESPECT PEOPLES PROPERTY/BREAK LAWS AND GIVE US
FELLOW SPORTSMEN A BAD NAME we are lucky to have what we do have wont be long and all access will be gone
I did not fish out of Lewis but want to apologize to the land owners for the disrespect of others that are giving US ALL A BAD MAME

X2 RedWolf....I parked there Friday and Saturday. Got there early enough to get a parking spot with a trailer in tow. The issue I saw was when the parking lot was full, guys with trailers tried to swing around the backside of the lot and hit the grass. That's a no-go this time of year, the ground is soft! I think an extra fence at the back of the lot will stop the damage to the yard. First come first served. To the people who park on the opposite side of the road of the lot, you make it impossible for anyone to swing out of the lot. No parking signs need to be installed on that street. It was a zoo for sure!!! I think it needs to be patrolled. Once the lot is full, that's it! The fishing was ok both days.

Be respectful towards land owners and fellow fisherman!!

The warms temps are going to do some damage to the ice this week. Be safe and use good judgements!!😎

To late the back side is a rutted mess now , if that was mine I would be pissed , there are signs stating where the parking area is , it's a no brainer on a side note I didn't have to police the area
You'll never find out who does the damage to the access sites, so what we do at Chautauqua Lake, is at the end of the season we get as many guys together that want to help and we meet a one location on a set Saturday.  We each bring a rake and a bag of top soil and grass seed.  Then we split up and visit each of our access points and if tire tracks need to be fixed we do it as a group.  You will be surprise how much the land owners appreciate that and will allow you to use the access the next year.  You guys should try it at Oneida. It might help save a site.

Im sure I'll  get hammered for this but the situation at lewis pt lot is out of control. Neighbor had state police this morn complaining about people using a private drive to turn around, guess they don't  know what posted means. The lot is a mud hole don't  be surprised it gets shut down.

This happens every year. Last year it came close to being closed. From what I understand the state doesn't own it, but a land owner allows it to be used for access. Some of you guys may know more about it. Its been posted in older threads.

The last 3 years or so Lewis parking has been out of control. The owners are nice enough to provide parking and access but when neighbors complain about people parking and trespassing they will listen. I commend guys that see the lot is full and move on. As for fixing the mud good idea but it would take a dump truck and tractor to clean up the mess. I just hope none of our homes has a fire, it would be tough to get an emergency vehicle our way when they park on the road. I'm sure most people on here are not the problem but in reality it only takes a few to make us all look bad.

xc600 you should call your  town supervisor and ask  for  no parking signs on the road  ...then again that can limit a home owner having a party

The way the parking is on the road , god forbid if there was a fire , or some other type of emergency , it's a tight squeeze, and a snow plow would have to roll the vehicles in the ditch

Trap I'm good friends with the super and my brother is a board member, the road we are talking about is a private egress= ingress for locals. The property is all privately owned. I won't be surprised if it gets posted. Hopefully this warmup will slow the abuse down, shore ice is shot. Be safe out there

Just tried to hit my panfish spot on Oneida that had 8 inches of ice 2 days ago. Started spudding out and had to turn around and head in. Ice was rotten from last 2 days. A whack or 2 and spud was going through. A few spots where our tracks from previous trips were and I only had to touch it with the spud and it was trough. That may be it for me this year. Never ended up getting over walleye waters this year. Extended forecast not lookin to good either. Got a couple days this week of rain followed by a day of high winds. 👎🏻

Post by: Racer268 on Feb 20, 2017, 05:08 PM
Simple solution to the parking issue might be to fence off the back lot if there's not supposed to be any parking there, put up residential parking only signs on the street and then charge $5.00 to park in the lot.  The abusers would move on and the ones that really care and probably are not the cause of the problems wouldn't mind contributing to have a place to park.

The people who own the property are more than likely not interested in the $5.00, or $10 or 20 and will just post the property.  Hard for me to understand what those people are thinking.  Certainly not next year....

Guys that fish sandy pond...there is a fee to park at wigwam I think. I've been only once. Does this fee help keep the place clean and detour folks that are more likely to trash it if it were free?
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: KingPerch on Feb 21, 2017, 06:22 AM
Wigwam parking and access is usually clean. The owners of the property care greatly, like any property owner, about their property. A small fee to park helps pay for the property, taxes and an easy access on off the ice/water!! Respect for others... goes a long way!!😎

Bummmer Bobby DeadEyez...but does not surprise me ...seen thick weak ice deteriorate like that, and even quicker, many, many times.

The ice spud is a great tool for finding a "safe" trail out to fishing spots in the morning, ...that spud will also tell you how quick ice conditions can change when you decide to head in later that day,...  when you're not  able to take that same "safe" morning trail back to the same shore location.

This 4 day run of weather Oneida is about to get will  put an end to any safe fishable ice....can't see any bad or good ice surviving this weather stretch coming.

Fished Lewis the last two days. Good ice (considering), good walking conditions, good friends and good bite - the simple things in life are pretty sweet. Didn't bother targeting eyes and were rewarded with a nice pile of jumbos both days. Surprise of the yesterday was catching this brute with a small gold kastmaster on 4lb test. Quick pic and back in it went.

Thanks for the kind words guys. I'm continually impressed by the amount of knowledge on this site. That indeed is a Shimano reel that I've had for quite a few years. Still use it but most of my primary reels are now ones with instant anti-reverse. One of these days I'll try the free spool reels a lot of the guys on here fish. Fred, you're exactly correct about the FOF Products pop n fish. Don't see many around here and not that many people know what they are. Not surprised that you knew exactly what it was.

Birdslayer I was tempted to keep it and try the butter bath but decided not to since I had a pile of perch to deal with. Know a lot of guys say they are darn good; can't understand why people still leave them on the ice to die instead of just releasing them.

I remember my dad catching burbot when i was a kid and he would throw them away because he didn't know any better! Good man but not very worldly.... small town guy mill worker his whole life and has no interest in education, even about fish! Thats until I fed him some poor man's lobster!!! I cooked him his first ling about ten years ago and he thought it was some kind of salt water fish i had caught. When I told him what it was he didn't believe me and I literally had to show him the pictures and carcass! After that his first response was "you know how many of those i caught and left on the ice over the years!?" I said I know... now don't you wish would have kept them!?? Or at the very least let them go so someone else could enjoy them. He agreed and now every time I fish on Oneida he asks if I caught any ling cod!!!! He can't get enough! Lesson here is one man's garbage is another man's treasure... if your not going to eat it RELEASE IT!! Thanks for putting that one back so I can catch him next year!!!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Way to go Bruce  :), haven't seen many of those on this thread or on the ice this year. Great picture of the lake, odd when there's not a soul to be seen. Would love to get out today but  decided not to tempt fate. Keep on thinking about what Shane and some others said a while ago about candled ice and the quality of the Oneida ice this year and how fast it will go.

Birdslayer nice tale about your Dad, maybe I'll keep the next one I catch to try but it's looking like that will have to wait till next year. I remember when I first started ice fishing out of Apps and Godfreys, you would see piles of them on the ice on some days.

In the 50s and 60s there was a guy with a sled, not a snowmobile, who would criss cross the ice at Sylvan Beach and pick them up.  I guess He knew something everyone else didn't ??  They are good but not a walleye. The walleye limit then was 25.

Ha Ha,  That's funny.  It was tough to stay ahead of the bite chasers this year with such limited area to fish.  Heard I just missed you last Saturday.  Pooch said he ran into you out there.  See ya on the open water.

The only bite I was chasing yesterday was out of a steak sandwich.

Thanks choo choo  look forward to next years reports and hope to meet up with you on the mighty Oneida for eyes next year.  My pals and I try to make at least 2 trips a year out there for a night or two on the ice, but it was a no go this year.  only two trips to Black Lake and one to Chaumont.  Lots of miles for marginal fishing.  have a great soft water season and look forward to next year.  Remember last year on Valentines day getting to Lewis Pt. at 6 am and it was -28 air temp.  Best present ever.

Too be honest Steve I don't know much about their habits it's a learning curve , I've caught lakers , but not LL, 2 were landed in 2 trips and 1 lost , we jigged  them up on the same stuff we use for lakers , I will be spending more time on them next season ,

FYI - at the OLA annual meeting on May 3rd there is going to be a speaker talking about the many ship wrecks on Oneida lake. There are dozens of them from sailboats to tug boats to tour boats. This subject is fascinating to me. It should be a great presentation.

reel I find the subject fascinating myself and I done a lot of research on the subject ,what originally   caught my interest was  the fact that we had a inland body of water with so many  ship wrecks and they dated back to the 1500's, another unknown fact about  Oneida lake  is  that years ago it was said to be  home of a lake  monster like nessy or champ on champlain ,one  morning  i was on the lake  and another boat was fishing  rather close to me .....i noticed a strange wake  then i could not believe what i seen! the most hideous creature i have  ever seen  rose out of the water and attacked the other  boat!  even tho i was petrified with fear,somehow i was able to get a picture of the beast ...later i was told it was the famous oggo pogo .........

Well KP can fire up the 2017-2018 or we can just add to ,
  Well from what I see so far from the boat this season on Oneida lake the eye bite continues , and the shad population is big but they are on the small side so There should be a significant die off unlike last year ,as of now I'm leaning toward a decent eye and perch bite for the 2017- 2018 ice season , but first some shore casting for those ol marble eyes

Expect snow, not ice on the Great Lakes this winter

12/7 - Over the past two winters, the Great Lakes have had a below-average ice cover. And thatís expected to continue this year. One of ice climatologist Jia Wangís biggest jobs is the annual ice cover prediction for the Great Lakes. Heís with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration office in Michigan, which tracks ice cover throughout the winter. This year, he expects the five lakes to have a 26 percent ice cover. Thatís down from the historical average of 55 percent.

And Wang says that means a warmer, La Nina winter, with more lake effect snow. Cold winds can pick up moisture as they pass over the open water, dumping snow when they hit land.

Lake Erie (the shallowest Great Lake) and Lake Superior (the northernmost) are projected to get the most ice cover this year Ė 48 percent and 31 percent, respectively.

Wang cautions that his recent predictions have had mixed results. In 2016, his prediction was pretty close. But last winter he missed badly. NOAA predicted a 55 percent ice cover for the Great Lakes Ė the reality was more like 20 percent.

Well, I for one, am losing all respect and not seeing any credability in the National Weather Service (and their warnings) or the meterologists making predictions, long or short.
We had a snow warning last night, today and tonight = NOTTA!  barely a flake of snow.
Take it one day at time folks and hope for some good ice this year.  We are due!

Freddy - last week I noticed the eyes were gorging themselves on gobies. That is the first time I saw gobies in eyes from Oneida.

It will be interesting to see if they eat them all winter. The gobies go deep in the winter...

Question for you gentleman who have fished Oneida a lot more than I have, do you think that Big Bay will have good ice by the 30th? Friend and I were hoping to hit it up that day and neither of us lives close. I'm well aware that the best way to see if ice is good is to check for myself, I'm not new to this but that's not an option. Thanks in advance, stay safe this season and tight lines.

Hit some small water today and only 2.5 - 3" of good black ice but 3" of snow also! Had a yoyo walk out to me with nothing but a beer in his hand! I stopped him from getting to close to me and told him he was a brave man. I told him last Friday I checked this ice out and it was froze here but where he came from was open water, so my best guess is there probably is only 2" where you got on. He said he heard a crack but thought it was normal? Wow!

Got out Saturday and Sunday for some early ice ....crossed the Mason Dixon line into nepa for better ice and caught some fish.
Limited on Bass Saturday with a few perch and pannies. Sunday was slower , 2 keeper bass, 1 nice crappie, and some sunnies and bluegills.
Always something magical about the first trip out...and it felt great getting out there, drilling some holes and seeing some fish on the screen and a few flags too.
Did not want to go Monday with the warm up....hope it gets cold again soon.

Choo choo there is an easier way to post pictures directly now. When you reply there is an option at the bottom that says "Add image to post". If you click that then you can choose the location of the pic on your PC or phone and post it.

Day started slow. Left the spot after 3 hrs with 8 total fish. Scouted out a few more bodies of water for trips next week. They werenít quite ready yet so we ended up going to the spot we started in this morning. We had to really work for them today.

I recently saw a video of a new snowmobile produced in Russia, designed for ice fishing, working maple syrup lines, farming, etc. They're being distributed out of Minnesota and I think currently there are two NY dealers locally. One in the Rochester area the other in Boonville. I know made in Russia, and I in my 50 plus yrs fishing Oneida have had plenty of sleds, my old Tundras being the best, bar none. But this sled needs a serious look. It's called the " Irbis T- 150. Four stroke 10 hp hitch, rack, under seat storage etc. I think it would pull any trap sm shanty and allow a lot of older fisherman mobility. The price is $2495. You fellas take a look , it's hard to find a good used sled these days for that price,  most are hot rods with too short of a track and lousy clutching. Hope this helps .

Well I got to try out my "new", hardly used 2 man Nanook yesterday afternoon. Just bought it from a neighbor for $200 bucks.
Lot's of room to fish and move around with 6 windows for plenty of light. Only had 1 ice anchor, so it was challenging whenever I was not seated due to the damn wind that never let up.
I removed 1 seat to add a little more storage room.  the tub is very shallow compared to my old Kenai., but I was able to fit all my gear in. Need to get used to those pole push in adjuster buttons ...a bit of a pain, but overall I really enjoyed fishing out of it. Someday I will get that Otter Thermal...maybe 2020
BTW, fishing was slow, 1 keeper perch, a few dinks and 1 keeper bass. Next trip Oneida ! ...can't wait!

No you're good. I take all the thicknesses reported to get an average to determine if it is getting close for the sled, ticker isn't up to the drags required on Oneida Lake... thanks!

Oneida Lake.

That 5-7" is what one guy found at his location, ice thickness can differ greatly depending where you are and the conditions found... tread carefully and good fishing to you sir!

I was out today. Ice where we fished was about 6Ē. There were sleds and wheelers running around. Need to watch for cracks. We found some perch and 5 keeper eyes. Tons of short walleye around. Creepers were a must for walking. Play safe guys and gals!!🎣🕳

Wiredstone, I know it's not as cool as a trip to Maine but the harbors in Buffalo usually get clogged with smelt buy mid season. If you need a smelt fix and you are in the area, drop a line.

Fished out of Sylvan Beach yesterday.  Ice was great at 6-8 inches.  Fished in 18-22 fow  Very little action for me.  No walleye, few perch.  There were couple of sleds out.  Talked to few people, no one reported good action where I was.  Glad to see that other people did way better then I did.  Great job, guys.  Will try again next week.

early 90's, there was a year that I couldn't get thru the ice with my hand auger and had to spud a couple more inches to hit paydirt......had to have been 36".......this is an epic cold blast for this time of year IMHO......should be a good base for the rest of the season

Post by: Pequod1 on Jan 01, 2018, 07:39 AM
Happy New Year.   I agree with you Pimplepounder. They are also fairly easy to catch with a little variation in jigging method. The way the weather is going, Keuka lake will again freeze enough to reach laker water. When that happens, Ill probably take a trip or two there and let you know. Fun to catch, but unless you smoke them, not so good to eat.

Went out of Sylvan Beach this morning with my nephew.  He caught his first few walleye ever which was a good thing.  All in all we caught a dozen or more pins and a few keeper perch.  Ice in good shape.  Only made it out to 21 feet of water before hitting the edge of all the ice slabs.  Nice day to be out.

Post by: reeleyz on Jan 04, 2018, 07:26 AM
There are spots out of Cleveland that you could probably get stuck with a sled or wheeler if you stopped. Big peices of ice sticking up going every direction. I had to slowly pick through a few nasty spots on Monday.
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: Chowdaire on Jan 04, 2018, 08:40 AM
Yeah. I've been out a few times with the wheeler off the north shore and it's tough. Most of those chunks are too solid to smash down so you have to just slowly weave around avoiding the ones that will hang you up and be ready to bottom out a lot.

Today on the ice after I pulled in my limit I started playing with the new slab rap I got.  I really don't have the patience for them.  I did put one short up with it.  Something different.  Don't think I'll be stocking up on them like I did the lindy darter and the bigger ripping raps.

1 nice smallmouth and a few small crappie. Fun Times , but very windy with lake effect snow squalls from I guess Lake Ontario or Finger lakes....lots of elbow room out there today.

I get that they can't be everywhere all the time, but i have called our CO several times about the issues there and nothing happens. He wants you to get video, plate numbers, names, ID, Vehicle descriptions....... some officers are doing a great job ... others need to retire! I talked with a CO at the State Fair and asked him if he knew our CO ..... he said with a cheeky grin ''ya i know him, some guys get older and lose their drive"!  Don't get me wrong, he seems like a great guy and has followed thru with a couple of complaints that i sent him and he responded with updates of the situation but just seems there could be a better visual presence that may deter some of the BS

Well, I did fish this morning. 3 small gills that went back to swim another day, and 1 11" crappie. The ice is in great shape ! 15 to 16" of ice. The lake is up about 2' :o.
On a side note: while it was warm last week I built a smitty shanty. Today was the first trip out with it. It worked amazing !!! All aluminum frame. put my 1 man canvas on it, and stayed nice, and warm. It pulled easier than my jet sled. I'll see if I can get some pics, and post them. I should get a patten on it. A few of the guys out there came over, and checked it out, and suggested that I patten it before someone else does.   Sully...

strange day today.......obviously did well but was very unexpected......drille d my holes and the muddy water from fish creek finally showed up.....couldn't see my jig a foot down the hole.....thought to myself, self, you might as well move somewhere else......thought I would at least try for a while and was surprised with the amount of fish I marked......ton of shorts and a few keepers with perch mixed in with the eyes........wish I had a camera to see if the water was muddy down deep....cause it was certainly muddy on top......ya never know ......

Yo Oldtimer,

 Haven't heard anything from you in awhile my friend. Do they catch any perch down there in Lake Capitcypoopalah (made up name to prevent locating Old-timer's secret winter fishing grounds) ?  I have to confess this has been the best fishing season for me in 10 years.  I am looking forward to your return and getting to use that "wacky worm" bud.  Drop me a PM will you?

Sent PM... no perch here that I know of. The specks (crappies) are just starting to turn on.  They start out smallish but now getting a lot better as females run out of river into the lakes. Few over 2 lbs being caught.  It will get a lot better after tonights low of around 30 and tomorrows high struggling to get to 50.  15 mph North wind will make for a chilly day.  Got trl hitch and wireing on the new car. Work on boat tommorow and will be ready to go.   Strange rules in Fl. . I see a single guy in a boat with 15 or more rods out. Trolling.

went back to old faithful this morning for a couple hours. 33 big sunnies, and dropped the crappie of the year at the hole. I had his head out of the hole. it wouldn't fit through a 6" hole ! I reached down to pull it through. the hook popped out, and back down the hole it went !! I said a couple words that weren't quite english ! the ice is in great shape. 16".   Sully...

I ventured out yesterday. Fished with friends and made new friends. Lots of fish on the screen all day, but, it was a grinder to get them to play, for us anyway.  I managed a limit of eyes, quite a few white perch and no yellows. Mother Oneida has an unique way of humbling fisherman from time to time. Yesterday was my time. Iíll be back at it next weekend. Stay safe everyone 😎

Probably until he's sold out!  ;D

How is the ice for snowmobiles? Is there any snow or crust for the scratchers to keep the sliders lubricated or snow for getting on/off the ice?
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: filetandrelease on Jan 25, 2018, 05:46 PM
BART parking lots are bare and there is no snow on the ice ,
  Went out with my bud John today, we had a nice day ,caught a few perch
, and we each kept a limit of eyes

Fillet , with that distance of spacing between your holes can you see your lure on your depth finder from either hole?  I imagine its yes but wondered. Thanks .

Buckeyes vs fat heads, I hate buckeyes as they are tough to keep alive but they seem to catch more eyes. Anybody use only fat heads and have success
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: moosefeet on Jan 26, 2018, 09:25 PM
We pretty much just use fatheads and keeping them alive for 10 days is pretty simple just change out their water a few times and using an aerator helps. Also, keeping them cold helps.
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: KingPerch on Jan 27, 2018, 07:14 PM
Made it out today... not Oneida. Managed a 20Ē eye and 12 perch. My son managed 12 perch as well. Dumped a lot of light biting walleye today. Lots of marks, no biters. Seems to be the story on Oneida too. Weíll be at them again next week.
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: bigbuck on Jan 27, 2018, 07:35 PM
Buckeyes have a harder (more bony) head that I have found keeps them on the jigging raps treble hook better than the softer head of the fatheads. I have had more fathead heads stolen by light biters. Just a small difference but makes life more enjoyable when it is real cold out and you don't have to re-bait as often.
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: filetandrelease on Jan 28, 2018, 04:51 AM

Well guys donít forget your creepers,  Oneida and a few others are really slick , if you donít have any now would be a good time to invest in a pair , there pretty cheap compared to a busted arz  , I did see a few without them doing the he ice shuffle

Had 2 firsts for me Friday....Drove up to Otsego Lake for the first time ever ....and caught my first ever lake trout through the ice .
It was a blast and nice change of pace.........not a lot of marks , but managed to fool 2 of them.

It is funny how these deep cold water summer dogs can be so damn frisky and become winter stars  come ice season !
Can't wait to chase them again.
Beautiful lake .

Seeing Your ice laker pictures, along with Freds, Snags and the Lake George guy's posts the last few years, was the motivation to try it....sure glad I did.

Thanks guys  ;D ;D. Is anyone else fishing ? we've got fantastic ice conditions, and now's the time to get out there. Before you know it, it will be gone. The days are getting longer, and the ice is making alot of noise, because of the long daylight hours. Another 3 to 5 weeks, and it's going to be over. I hate to even think about it. watch out for gas pockets. They are begining to open up. I've seen a couple good size ones in big bay. There is also a monster crack all the way across the bay. tight lines everyone ;D ;D.   Sully...

I hope i'm wrong to Bobby, but i've been on the ice almost every day, and what i'm seeing, and hearing out there is a tell tail sign of what's to come. we've topped out ice making conditions, because of the long day light hours. the ice is expanding big time, and we lost a couple inches of ice in the last week. there's still alot of good ice out there, 14", but when it starts to go bad, it's going to happen fast.   Sully...

Those wrestling matches are exciting and intense Fred.

 2 kids...one on one in a circle on a mat.... with all the coaches, teammates, friends, and family yelling and screaming instruction and encouragement ...cheering for every point made...the ebb and flow of a match is awesome.

The best part for me is when the match is over, the winners arm is raised, ,,,,,,,, AND THEY ALWAYS SHAKE EACH OTHERS HAND BEFORE LEAVING THAT MAT...sportsmanship ,.... and fun to watch.

Not sure if you guys seen it, but I watched the Penn State(1) vs Ohio State(2) wrestling match on Saturday night.
Rec Hall was sold out and with 6700 people, it was LOUD!!! Penn State won it 19-18 with a depleted starting squad and fired up second stringers.
Itís just amazing to see as kids like Umpaís little man progress thru the years up to the collegiate level. It takes a lot of work by those boys to get to a top D1 program like the two that I watched! Good luck in your future, little man!!

No sir , you know I think I had good fortune after my start yesterday morning ,got a half mile from home and my trailer jumped off the ball, glad I wasnít wheeling along  but was a bit heavy putting it back on , and then I get to my destination and my power screw doesnít want to start and thatís never happens , it did after a bit 😡so today taking care business is in order that comes before chasing fish

I've noticed that usually around nine when the eyes are done that's it.  They are tough to get.  I had them on my screen at 10:50 and I played with them for 10 minutes and they wouldn't bite.  I had them 15tf off bottom.  They would chase back done and nothing

I can't pick my trailer up off the block to hook it up if it's loaded anymore.

fished (wasted my time) the Beach this morning......there's 4 hrs of my life I can never get back ;).....1 burbot and 2 short eyes.......hope other guys did well......machines were out (not me) including wheelers.....they are tearing up the access......I left at 10:30 and it was still ok but quite a few machines were still out and will make it worse when they come in.....not saying it isn't accessable by walkers but wear rubber boots.......ice is fine......although I did notice that drilling thru 18" is getting easier......ice is starting to get weaker....imho.......s hould be fine thru the weekend but extended forecast looks bleek...........side note: water is getting murkier and discolored from runoff....this is not intended to sway anybody from going out just my observations.....be safe everyone

I got out yesterday morning in big bay. I couldn't catch a cold !! 4 sunnies, and 1 crappie. Everyone around me was smashing them. Going in the a.m. I will post when I return.
As far as ice conditions: We lost alot of ice. About 6", and the 12 to 14" we have left is still good, but like Scout said, it's a little softer cuttting. there was also a current twards the channel. With the rain we got today, it can't be any better. There was also alot of open holes, and gas pockets. So if you go out, watch where you are walking. Some of those holes will swallow you up !!   Sully...

anyways I got out for  a few hours and hammered  med to small perch  and got a couple  dinners worth  from 5:30 to 8:30 .....I would say where but in all honesty the ice is getting rough and I don

Post by: choo choo on Feb 24, 2018, 10:13 AM
Lots of work and a pita hauling and boiling the 40 gallons of maple sap to get a gallon of maple syrup....but much easier and better yield, sweetness, and taste than the syrup you get from boiling sycamore , walnut , or birch tree sap.  Birch takes 80 to 100 gallons of sap to produce one gallon of syrup!!....and it is very expensive.

Woody, from woodys port Ontario bait shop makes some great syrup from maple trees.
I buy some there every year.

Any of you ever try  maple cream ?...try it... it's unreal...makes you cry it is so good!

Well, lets see ........   Boil rate of ~7gal/min( edit "hr" sorry I had to make this correction).  My sap is 3%, so 30 gal to make one of syrup in about 4.5 hours.  one beer/45min = one six pac.  Maybe a couple more for good measure.  :woot:

We almost got to prime time on the gills, maybe we will be perch fishing in March this year in the boat too. I had the sled ready for A trip over with you all again this year too.

I found the culprit who dropped the fish off (Fast Eddie from the old bait shop in Constantia) A friend of his got them Friday in Chaumont, I guess he went down on the ice and bruised his ribs and couldn't clean them. Ah well, nothing wasted here.

Going pretty good. Been to busy for an old man but get out fishing from time to time. My favorite lake here is much like Oneida in as much as she will really humble me from time to time.  This morning was one of those times.  Beautiful weather but today was one of those days.  Just happy to get out.  Looks like a tough March up there. Bad ice and not many good open spots..   good time to get equipment squared away.

Heard a guy got wet on Black Lake today.  Don't have any particulars - be careful out there.  Been so swamped with Maple sap and the boiling, I haven't had time to even go look at the ice in over a week.  I see the St. Lawrence every day though and it's wide open.  Hoping to be out in a boat for some eyes before the season closes on the 15th.  I'll be done maple stuff in another week.  :thumbsup:

Edit ----  he lost his balance on the "plank" getting off, LOL -  not hurt, just thoroughly WET!

Thanks Wayne
I did get out on the ice 3 days on 2 different lakes this week before the storm. Caught some bluegills, crappies perch and some bass. I had a neat double on a tip down,  a lm bass and a blue gill.

The highlight of the week , and actually highlight of the year was when I was hole hopping on my bucket, I noticed some movement along the shore way down the lake....OTTER !...NO ...FISHER ! He was working his way towards me,.... out on the ice....back in the woods ...out on the ice ...back in the woods. I had a camera, but it was in the jet sled 80 yards from me ! I decided to stay still and snap some cell phone pictures (lousy pictures) until I could sneak over to my sled. Out on the ice...back in the woods , just loping along, hunting that shoreline ! He even sits down at one point like a pet dog or cat does.  He's heading back to the woods, I slip off my cleats, try to sneak over to my sled... BUSTED ...Damn...he takes off in a flash. I did not get any real good pictures, but I will remember that ice trip forever.

Yo Choo Choo,

 Great pictures. They are so much fun to watch. We used to have a camp up in St. Regis. That was one of our favorite pastimes sitting on the bank of the river and watching the cavorting of the river otters across the way. The other was going to the dump and watching the bears. Oh yeh! we did go fishing too.

Yes trapper, starting to hear about more and more of them being seen down this way too...definitely a beautiful animal...super dark fur , and tail.

really fun to watch reeleyz...I was mesmerized .
I thought it was an otter at first Boggey, until it got a little closer and realized it was a fisher. Must have been a blast up there at your camp watching the otters

 I know they are much more common up north , but I am guessing it was a real treat for you too eyehi..

Steve,
I was coming down off my hill last year and saw a fisher come down out of a hemlock and run across the side hill. It was about 11:00 in the morning so he/she may have been after a squirrel? They will go after turkeys in the roost though. They can be nasty...I wouldnít want to corner one!

Yes I bet they can get nasty. While bowhunting from a tree stand last fall, I noticed the squirrels started talking to each other, barking and fussing. Then the squirrels went quiet, minute later here comes a fisher.

Had one get in a bucket of fish carcasses I had outside. He didn't notice me standing there watching him. He was going to town munching those remains down. I said to him, "HEY What Are You Doing"? He looks up with teeth showing, blood all over his face, then took off. Wish I got a pic of that!

I guess they can be nasty!
I was reading on the NY State DEC website, they said the fisher has NO natural enemies here in NY State,.... only man !

Nothing gonna mess with a fisher!

Thought it was cool reading that they are one of the only animals that hunt, kill, and eat porcupines.


fishers are definitely expanding their range the last couple years...imho.......hav e seen multiple cats in a couple different areas in the last 2 years......pretty cool to watch

I think and   again I say I THINK  ,,,,it is illegal to pick up a dead animal out of the road during it's closed season ..... I'm sure  wish4 did not mean harm ,you should call the dec to have it identified .....if it's close to 30 pounds I'm betting you got a river otter and the dec would be  very interested because of the river otter stocking program

You can move it to the side of the road , but donít take an animal out of season and put it in your truck you could get a tick and I asked that very question and that was the answer I received from officer Dorrett

Sure it wasn't a fisher at 35lbs.  DEC says males get to 13lbs and females to 7lbs. Over the years, have seen many while I was deer hunting. One of my sets was the "Fisher Watch"....h2l

one more thing ...fisher love to eat porcupines ,often  quills are in their fur ....human nature makes you want to stroke the fur to see if it is soft ....be very very careful ,I speak from personal experience .....
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: choo choo on Mar 09, 2018, 11:37 AM
Yes , They are the ONLY mammal in all of North America that hunts, kills and eats porcupines.

Fur prices on Fisher, like many animals, have been way down ... 20 years ago a prime northern Fisher would bring between $300 and $400 dollars per pelt. ...now they only bring $20 to $40 dollars per pelt.

Same thing happened to the coon fur prices.  Use to get 20+ $ per lg pelt and I use to take 100 to 200 pelts to auction.   But now it isn't worth killing them, just chase them through the woods and leave them in the trees.  Dogs still have fun.  We can thank the Russian fur industry for the decline along with others.

We need a tariff on imported fur, then watch the prices soar!

I saw a youtube video of a fisher attacking a fox.  It had the fox by the neck and would have killed it except for the person taking the video.  I think the noises that the fox was making sounded quite a bit like the noises in the video that dacker posted.  I have seen 3 or 4 fishers in recent years, beautiful animals.

Freddie, that's your fungus, you found it and I made it for you.
It's yours if you want it. We can work out a trade when your freezer is full again. ;)
It's up to you...no rush...
I'll get looking for more fungus too, while I look for turkey sign and sheds.
I haven't done any since I did the fish a few years ago and I do enjoy it.
A replica? Wow, now that's a compliment! It does look good from across the room...Thanks guys!

 Tough going for the ol buzzard landed 17 perch 6 whites and 4 eyes ,the yellows werenít anything real note worthy but theyíll eat , not sure how the other 2 made out ,
   Walk out was a breeze on the way in the snow had softened up which made for a bit of a grind ,

Was a great day on the ice today... weather wise. Sunny and breezy. I struggled to find fish most of the day. Last move I made around noon put me on a school of juvenile perch, that had an occasional bigger fish. I had 3 flurries that allowed me to put 29 perch in the pail. The fish werenít the jumbos of Oneida. Kept 8.5-11Ē fish today. No walleye for me today... last day on the ice for me. Great day fishing with friends!! Life is good!! End of story!!!😎

Nice job guys. You did a lot better than me. I couldnít find those perch to save my life. The highlight of my day was finding a spot where some fat smallies were cruising and picking up a few of them.

Nice job to those who got out! Found some safe ice close to home, with some sorting ended up keeping 34 gills, 1 perch, and a few crappie.  Didn't think it was going to happen but those cold nights firmed things up nicely. Fun to share a nice spring day on the ice with some fellow fishers.

Post by: New Old Guy on Mar 26, 2018, 02:59 AM
Yo Guys and Gals,

 I managed to get out yesterday. Was supposed to meet up with a bud on Goose bay, but ended up fishing with a bunch of strangers (Not for long) from Boonville. Glad they turned out to be friendlies as Old Boggey had to rerig the old F150 with ice fishing equipment I had put away in the barn and low and behold , forgot the nils. They were nice enough to let me use there auger and I cut some holes with in talking distance from them  and proceeded to do what I do best. No not singing, :cookoo: :cookoo:, catching dink perch in 3 fow. I've had lots of experience catchin dinks at the Pond and knew if one is patient and endures, there are bound to be some keepers in the mix. There were, maybe say a 20 -one keep ratio.

 Anyway, let me preface this short story with the set up that old Boggey has been off the ice for nearly a month and I was pleasantly surprised when one of my north country buds ,,John, told me he has been fishing on 10 to 12 inches of ice at Goose Bay and Chippewa on a regular basis for the last week. On entry at the South side boat ramp the ice was solid and crusty . No snow to speak of and an easy drag,if you were dragging. i was not. I was a pail sitter for the day,a pole, a spud and my bait can. There were about 10 other shanties and pail sitters on the ice when I arrived at 8:30. A side note . get there early as the parking lot was full . I parked about a  block away in an area that did not have "No Parking " signs on it.

A few observations, the ice was 10 inches thick for the 2 holes I cut with one inch of white crusty ice on top. I had my monocular with me and scoped the north side of the bay (Kring's Point). There was visible open water around the point and in the channel. The perennial air boat was at work stirring up the ice chunks and breaking up the ice mat for the boaters. One lone fishing boat was noted with 2 occupants from my vantage point on the ice. The weather was cool, 24 degrees,and overcast on entry with a slight 10 mph wind from the north east. The sun came out about 10:30 and it warmed to a brisk but warming 42 degrees by the time I left at 2, thanking my new found friends from Boonville for the loan of the auger and the conversation. 

The catch would have numbered a thousand plus with some of the smallest perch I have seen all year. The keep was 30 nice perch of 9 inches to eleven inches in my pail. My best luck was when I switched to eyes from my spikes and fat heads. Those dinks can raid your hooke relentlessly if you let them. It is much harder for them to get the perch eyes off the hook, plus it keeps your jig in the water a lot more when you are not constantly re-baiting it.

 As usual, these are my own observations, I am not advocating nor disapproving of access to Goose Bay. All should be cognizant of varying ice conditions and changing weather patterns as this time of year should warrant. I might have forgotten my auger, but notice, I did not forget my spud. Spud Sp[ud Spud.

I can remember fishing when the water on the ice was running down the hole like water going down a drain. Black film circling around in the hole AND the perch were big and biting...maybe you guys will get a little of that action when it rains...but 50+ degrees and night temps above freezing doesn't sound good...watch yourselves!
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!

Unfortunately I think that shore ice will go bad really fast this time. It is not good ice, it's more like frozen slush.

Sylvan might survive for a bit longer.

Be safe guys.

Post by: trapper2000 on Mar 28, 2018, 03:51 AM
Biology. Yellow perch typically reach sexual maturity in 2Ė3 years for males and 3Ė4 years for females. They are iteroparous, spawning annually in the spring when water temperatures are between 2.0 and 18.6 įC (35.6Ė65.5 įF). Spawning is communal and typically occurs at night.

Freddie  brought this  to my  attention   so I  did  some reading .....this  gives  those  perch a pretty  wide  temp zone  to party at ,i'm beginning to  wonder if  in  some  areas  where  our  last ice   catch just isn't  as  good as  it  should  be  if  a lot of those  perch  did their  thing  when  it  was  65 degrees and  raining  3 inches a day
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: reeleyz on Mar 28, 2018, 05:09 AM
It seems like the perch in Oneida spawn right after the ice goes out.

Ever notice how some years the males are losing their sperm early? I have not seen that in a while on the ice at least. Last time I can remember it the temps got really warm and it rained hard in mid March. Water swhilring down the holes kind of rain.
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: Rugburn on Mar 28, 2018, 07:30 AM
reeleyz is right, never had my hole look like someone poured milk in it this year. I noticed the young males just starting to stage a few weeks ago, no girls showed for the party. My bud found them in shallower next to the weeds that day. Again that was a few weeks ago, and I can't get to the spot safely now. My guess is the limo is pulling up to the mansion loaded with the hot chicks soon. Now the ice can leave fast please so I can give them a ride home in the Lund.

Nice catch F&R! Way to stay on 'em...

Hey, thanks guys! Special thanks to Freddie for some of the tastiest fish I've ever had in my life...Oneida perch and walleyes! 1st off he risked his life to retrieve that fungus, almost fell off the ladder! Then he risked his life again walking on crappy ice day after day to catch enough fish. Not just for his freezer; but several of his friends.  :woot:
Thanks again Fred...I'll have fresh fish tomorrow. ;D
Oh yeah, I thought that walleye fungus was pretty mean looking; but he looks small next to the perch...he must be a Seneca Lake Perch. lmao :o

eyehi, ganoderma applantum...thanks, I can still learn something every day. ::)  I didn't know there was a market for them, painted yes; but not plain. I never knew anyone who collected them let alone sell them. PM me your number some time and I'll hang on to it. I like to trade...

I made a different Star or Snowflake last year. This one is the 2017 star. It has a genuine Swarovski crystal rhinestone in the middle. Kinda kool, I think. ::)
And I do have more... ;D It's a great wife present...

I will be at the Wildwood Sports Center Spring Sportsman's Flea Market on April 14th from 9am-4pm.
It's a good sale, lots of goodies for guys like us...you guys might like to come...I'll try to put up a flyer on here in a bit...

Thanks again guys, I do enjoy all your posts.
Freddie, say goodnight to your cat :afro: ;D

Well today was my last trip for perch fished from 10:00-3:00 , well the ice was good to start but the wind did a number by 3:00 , with 2 hits the spud went through and they werenít hard strikes so at that point I called it quits with 26 yellows , wish I could have started earlier , and the males were excited 😜

Ha!  Wife and I been on the road in a motorhome since May 21st.  Home the first week in August, maybe.  Been an awesome trip, so far.  Over 6500 miles at this point.  We are meandering eastward.
Have done just a little fishing; Cats in Kansas now, Cutthroat trout in Rockie Mtn. NP (in the mighty Colorado River, about 10 miles downstream from the headwaters; a pretty small creek at that point.)
I'll be on the Eyes in the River when I get back; have had some guys with good reports.

hey guys how many of you are thinking of a little maintenance on your equipment?  I started my auger last week and let it run for about 10 minutes  It's good to keep a little gas moving especialy in this hot weather  also put a fresh charge in the fish finder after letting it run all day. good to keep that battery active.  Took an inventory on my panfish jigs and have a list ready for when the stores stock up     Can't wait for hard water it won't be here soon enough for me

You guys keep after them, show no mercy to those eyeballs. They deserve a spot right next to the vegetables and rice on your dinner plate. I'm happy to sweep the scraps off the bottom of the lake once ice arrives.  :icefish:

I'm after those ducks tomorrow Larry, it's the first day here as well. Unfortunately it's going to be a downpour, and the young bucks want to go out this afternoon and spend the night in order to get a good spot. I haven't decided whether to camp out or not, maybe it's time for the youngsters to figure it out on their own. Then the old farts arrive 5 minutes before legal shooting.  ;D

Checked couple places today...one only had bout 2" the other bout 3" but looked kinda iffy spots in places so chose not to chance it....went home..we hooked up the boat and went to port bay....not bad out but couldn't find good perch...ended up about 50yds from ice covered southern part of bay and kept bout dozen keepers...really need some good ice.

Saw 2 boats east of 109 this morning. Some skim ice out 100 yards, it's going to be awhile.

Any boats out today? With 60 degree temps out it's very tempting, just not sure the boat deserves a road film salt bath.

Cold snap followed by warm temps and rain, that's the story of this season. We will be lucky to get on Oneida Lake for a month at this point. I'm ice fishing smaller bodies of water but it's not the same as Oneida.

Post by: oneida1 on Jan 10, 2019, 09:09 AM
Im not sure if that open by the beach or slush covered the wind is blowing out of west pretty could and the slush has pretty much stopped heading east near chapman so i would think its slush packed all the way to the east, either way the slush will help with the wind so you dont get wave action  and it should lock up.

Post by: moosefeet on Jan 10, 2019, 10:52 AM
Slush ice makes for better traction 😉
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: XC 600 on Jan 10, 2019, 02:25 PM
Yep big slussy in front of the house with some open spots. Only problem with frozen slush is it doesn't make for the best ice.
Title: Re: ICEFISHING, FRIENDS AND MORE!
Post by: oneida1 on Jan 10, 2019, 03:44 PM
no it dosnt but it will help this time around if there wasnt slush right now it would be whitecaps and would make it much harder to freeze consistant

Going to check our usual spot tomorrow morning Moose, south of Oneida, near where the guys on the horses go. Hope you heal up and join us soon! Todd and his dad going out? I'm sure Bruno is headed our way...

We are probably headed to same spot, not sure what Todd and them are doing Iíll ask. Heís helping a friend build a fishing shack for Raquette and launch date is Sunday I think. Hopefully weíll give those strippers a workout👍🏿
