Title: Sodus Bay BS Thread
Post by: deerefishyfishy on Feb 06, 2019, 06:22 PM
Lots of people suggesting it so here you go fellas... BS away. Maybe now we can all get back to reports and conditions on the "Reports and Conditions" thread. I'll start- I've been ice fishing on Sodus since last October and I've limited out by 9am every day on 12"+ perch using nothing more than yarn for line and bare paperclips for hooks. Sorry, but there probably aren't many left in there now...   ::);) ;D

got to love that one! You must be the guy just west of me last October in the Frabil..lol But reports and conditions did get hijacked for awhile. This may not end it but should help a little, as long as it stays on page one, because there are those who don't know there is page 2 and 3. It seems.

Thanks for starting this. I gave up on th3 reports side a couple weeks back. Shame,I wanted to report about the perch I hooked at third creek that ran out so much line, a guy landed him at the loop. Thank you sir, for giving me my #7 purple jigging rap back.  Dam, I just gave away my secret Sodus lure.

In all seriousness, where can you get on the ice for Sodus bay?  I've never fished there, and would like to try a different area.  I live in Irondequoit, so mainly do the ponds and the bay.  Thanks in advance for the advice

Check the Sodus Reports and Conditions page back a week or so ago.  There were a couple of detailed reports for access and parking spots.

Very popular is 3rd Creek. It  has a fishermanís parking lot with easy access to deep water but a long walk. Get there early as all of Wayne County will be parked there by 7am.

The bay got 6' of snow from African north Western winds dropping in on the bay.

On a serious note, I gave up on the reports and Conditions page too.

Watched a guys hub blow across the bay today. Next to no snow on the bay with this wind.

Went out Saturday and Oye! The wind! Shanty had some trouble taking the gusts. All in all slow. Couple few jumbos, not enough worth taking home. Saw the elusive sucker on camera. Still quality solid clear ice. 7"

No I didn't catch my limit. I didn't have much time either day to fish. My trips Saturday and Sunday were half a$$ed and quick.

I had enough for a couple meals though. ;D ;D

Being that I only live 5minutes from the bay, I don't look to limit out everyday.

Big Guy nothing has really changed at Sodus for the last 3 weekends that I have fished it. Ice is in good shape and slick, the bite is pretty steady, the better fish are deep, weeding out the dinks

Nothing has changed at sodus I have fished the same hole all season with the same results 30-60 quality fish brought home every time and deep water is not where I have been fishing less than 20fow all season for me.

S is for stupid but any how fished 3rd creek from dawn to dusk today and managed 30 keepers bite was tough for me today caught most of the fish before 10,local police pulled up on me when I was packing up and checked my fish and license,good for them.Ice was in great shape and for all the people that have fished this area I didn't see any trash laying around.Been to both bait shops for minnows the one that's out of the way will be getting my money.

Post by: alfed on Feb 12, 2019, 07:05 AM
Big guy I didn't refer to you as stupid sorry if you took it that way. I know you can figure things out your no rookie. Interesting that the under 20 fow is also producing well. The bite does get finicky about 10-10:30...the dinks move in heavy. I was playing with the swarm Sunday trying to see how far I could lift the swarm off the bottom. 16 ft of solid fish with no gaps. Yep the bay is loaded with perch. I have been averaging about 30-35 over 10inches.Good luck have fun.

I am going to assume he meant DEC police cause of a regular police asked me for my fishing license and to see my fish I'd laugh at them and keep walking no police but DEC police have jurisdiction to ask for a fishing license or to check your fish

Guys saying we just don't want people fishing Sodus is a joke ................. there are 1000's of people there on the weekends and I'm telling you that ice over by the loop has changed a lot since the warm up !!! BEWARE or there will be a tragedy  :'(
Title: Re: Sodus Bay BS Thread
Post by: FishinDude0901 on Feb 14, 2019, 05:54 AM
Yeah that's exactly it lol trying to keep people off the ice? Out of the amount of people that fish sodus, the percentage is minuscule that even know this site exists i'm sure of it. Lot of old timers don't keep up with this stuff and I can't really blame them.  That NE wind this past weekend created a lot more open water. Although what ice is there is safe. Just obviously distance yourself from open water. But where I crushed the perch the other day, that's unsafe, you can't go there  :whistle: :roflmao:

After a thaw we should all be using caution.

I can't state it any other way: there is many many air bubbles trapped in the ice.
Even though the ice is thick in spots, air bubbles in the ice is never a good thing, and does not make the ice as safe as sold d black ice throughout. I heard cracking as I was walking to spots also last weekend.

WE ALL NEED TO USE CAUTION

I am not trying to keep people away. As a local guy, I know some little known access spots that I will not share, and I also have private permission and access for other spots too.

I am simply stating the facts, that the ice is not uniform, and there is many spots that have air bubbles trapped in the ice.

Please also be aware that we got a decent amount of snow and freezing rain this week, use caution.

I bring my Spud with me on every single trip, no matter how thick the ice is. I use my Spud when there is snow on top just as much as I use it during early ice.

I cannot report how much snow is on the ice as I have not been out since last Sunday.

Use caution and stay on top.

Hey guys, not looking for handouts and I have thoroughly read both Sodus threads, but Iím asking for advice. Taking my 9 year old son out for his first time ice fishing and I want him to have some action. Seems like Sodus is putting up plenty of perch to keep him interested. Most of the reports Iíve read reference third creek. Looks like about a half mile walk to the start of the perch grounds. How is parking at 3rd creek? Do you think this is a good approach? It would be nice to catch some better fish but I donít really care about the size, I just want the kid to have some action. Any opinions?
Title: Re: Sodus Bay BS Thread
Post by: JEBADIAH on Feb 18, 2019, 08:30 AM
Lots of parking there,if you go on the weekend be there by 5:30 to avoid the rush.Been there 6 times and done well every time.From what I've seen I would suggest being there and set up before the sun comes up.

(https://i.postimg.cc/3478ZbFv/20190218-102008.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/3478ZbFv)

Third creek at about 7:30am. I have 2 hour plus drive so I'll never be there much earlier. Ice access about where red arrow is. A jig and spikes or wax worms will elicit a lot of action. You dont necessarily have to go out as far as everyone else to get action either. Hope all goes well and good luck ;D

Oh and don't forget the snacks n drinks ;) that was for many years my boys favorite part when they were young, stopping and letting them get what they wanted to take. Shoot they were in there upper teens and it was still part of it lol.

I've been fishing out of third creek all season same spot. I'm not going to give exact location but it about a mile out and less than 20 foot of water. Stay away from the crowd and that's all I will give you. Have had a great season took my fifth trip yesterday and it was the best day so far.

"Straight out" seems relative. I know Brad, and I'm here to tell you he did walk straight out. Why would he ever want to not walk in a straight line? Some say that perhaps the shortest distance between to points is a .......... Straight line!

If you come from distance and want to fish more than one day is reasonable and within walking distance of restaurants and bars.  Appreciate a pm concerning  if  its open for business.

if you go out tomorrow you better go early. Hurricane force wind gusts later in the day. They are saying the lake level could rise enough that you may be floating on a huge raft. Just a warning. Be careful

How's the snow and pull out there today after the snowfall? Have sleds cut a decent path out? Specifically looking for info on 3rd Creek area.   :tipup:

Are sleds/ATV's still being run on the bay? Thoughts?

New to the website: How is ice on Sodus Bay, specifically I am looking to walk on at the launch by Arney's that still solid and safe?

Some sleds and ATVs have cut some paths so it isn't too bad. About 4"- 5" as it compressed a bit today in the warmth. Dress down on the pull out and in as you will get warm. I kept two dozen 9 to 12" perch in 28 FOW. Had to sort through dinks. Tip downs were a savior for bigger keepers as the wanted bigger fatheads.
