Was out on the lake a few weeks back at Pendergast and caught quite a few perch. Saw one quad out but ice was ~5" and slush and snow quite heavy. Was thinking about taking my son this weekend and wanted to bring the quad. Can anyone tell me if chains are a must as I currently do not own. Also, is anyone seeing quads off of pendergast. Hoping the warm weather today and cold the rest of the week helps with the slush and snow.

I hear that there are quads going out. I have also heard they're getting stuck in the slush. I have chains on mine but only have 2WD. I'm taking it out this weekend hoping the the conditions are better  ::) Looks like the next few nights are going to be single digits, should harden up for us.

Was out of Mayville on Monday Game Warden was out checking licences and my fish. He was nice enough to give me a break as I had left mine in the truck. Just a heads up.

Crazy thing happened today.  Fishing perch this am I have a good hit and end up breaking off looseing my jig.  Only one of that kind with me I might add.  Tie on another and proceed on catching fish.  About two hours later end up catching a good perch that has my jig from earlier hooked in its lower jaw.  Never would I guessed to get a fish to bite twice.

that's sweet............bonus for getting your jig back,  i'm presuming it was a keeper since the first time was good hit

thats cool travis that happened with me and a buddy catching tiger muskies up here in cassadaga. one of us lost our jig (damn expensive rapala I might add) caught a little while  later on a small jig  , actually ended up with one hook in it  and tangled the other's line pretty wild 10 minutes or so . We were fishing crappies.   And damn I wish I had the time you have travis this year is killing me so far . It is still early though

Should have stayed in bed this am.  Lost my gaf down the hole, battery died on the finder, lighter died, and had to throw back two good eating eyes.  Snow was twice as deep as yesterday on the east side of the lake.  Drag is not gonna be fun if this snow keeps up.  Gonna start hitting the west side.

I heard something about the gaf ..like your not allowed to carry one is this true..if thats true good thing my ice scoop has a hooked end i used it last year to pull a walleye out off the hole  after i tried just lifting it out on the line and he came of the hook and gulped the air 2 times enough time for me to shove the hooked thing in his gill and pull his a'' out  ;D haha

Use of gaffs
Use or possession of gaffs or gaff hooks is prohibited when
fishing in freshwater, including the Hudson River upstream
of the Tappan Zee Bridge, except when ice fishing.

Here is the copied section of regulations.

Why did you have to throw back 2 good eating eyes?

Just curious.... how do you guys think the calico fishery in this lake is gonna be in the next 5 years... seems like most of the fish ive caught in the past 3 years in the spring or winter have all been solid healthy 9 inchers or better... havnt really thrown alot of undersized fish back over the years (dont catch many).... also notice that most of the calico are over 11 inches not your boarderline 9 inchers....

If you and your buddy stay on them like you have there will be very few to catch!  lol j/k  In the spring with my friend we were on some schools of smaller fish the last couple of years. We have had a little bit of trouble finding as many as my friend was used to in years gone by though.  I've only fish the lake from shore in the past and it had become such a circus that I quit fishing for them for years. I would like to get on them at night through the ice, but haven't made the time. I love that late night action when the ice is popping and most people have gone home, slight slack line on spring bobber, set the hook......PRICELESS

Fishing The Chat in Two weeks for a long weekend.  I'll bring bait up for the first day, but wondering in any of the bait Shops around the Lake have emeralds?  I thought years ago Hogan's did, but I haven't been in there in years.
