We walked off last year the last weekend of March ...  even caught fish that day 😎

You missed April bite and that's a shame.  I was out there on Easter and the day after.  Easter cost me...those troopers are unrelenting.  After a brief stop to see if my hands were capable of holding the hood of my truck I got up there and caught.  Garufi made it up too.  12-14"on Easter.  6-7 the day after!

There will be a cold blast across the country toward the end of February, hopefully lasting into March so you may be ok.  These are degrees below normal, not temperatures, although you can adjust it for temperatures also.  https://climatereanalyzer.org/wx/fcst/#gfs.conus-lc2.t2anom

I was out April 3rd 2015. I measured 13" that day, I remember you could scrape a few inches off the top with your boot. I felt like I had the lake to myself, didn't see another soul. I remember getting on and off was kinda interesting. Fish bit great, I remember catching 4 Lakers and maybe 10 small mouth while jigging up my perch.

Heading up for the first time to ice fish the King.  Planning to head out of Pilot Knob area.  Have a quad with chains, but from what I have been seeing on here regarding possible snow accum and inconsistent ice it seems that walking might be the safest bet.  Was thinking 50-70' using tubes, swimbaits, jigging raps, etc.  Can anyone that fishes that area provide any pointers?  Smart or dumb to leave the quad at home?

Ah being the atv. Walking is going to suck. If you start to hit some thin ice hop off and walk.  Iíve parked my atv in the middle of the lake and went the rest of the way on foot.  Worst comes to worst. It sits on the trailer.

Anyone have thoughts on the perch bite lately?

Iím fairly new to ice fishing in general, but have focused on perch-Iím really liking it.  Every time I go Iím hitting huddle.  I went Sunday and Monday of this week, and caught probably (between two of us) about 45-50 with 25 keepers (8 1/2Ē+).

I know some days people say they can have a limit in an hour.  Is it slow lately?  Is this normal?  Iím hole hoping a decent amount.  I found a spot I love that seemed to have the flasher lightening up early and then intermittently as it got towards afternoon, and then seemed to die from 1:30 on...

Just wanted to get others take on this too

Thanks

Those guys that say they can have a limit in a ďhourĒ are keeping every perch they jig up, to do that. Have you ever seen the pics those guys put up? Iíd be shocked if there were 10 about 9Ē or so. Most are 7-8Ē they keep. Not my cup of tea, but they have a right to it.

I only fish huddle for perch as well. You can walk out of there with a solid limit of 9-12Ē+ fish but you gotta work for them and toss those 7-8Ēers back.

I love they locked out the post about the access being closed on LG thread

They should ban all talks of LG and this state would be a borderline tolerable message board

As it stands all NY talk is a group text between guys talking about "the king"

News 13 (local) said Bolton Landing reported 6.5" of snow. I do know there was a good amount of sleet/ice so If its anything like my local lake its a crust of ice as you walk breaking through to either glare ice or slush layer by now. Warm today and rain expected tomorrow. Hopefully machines have some trails beat down.
