I will be in that same shanty, but I think I am going to be out there on Friday to beat some the parking problems that they will have.

ADKSGUY,
We will be out there.  Probably pretty close to you guys.  Maybe a little more north heading towards the bridge.  I have an early ice spot that I usually do well in and by the looks of things end of January might be early ice.  ***Off topic, did they take down the Walleye Challenge page where HiOctane was complaining about the way the tournament is run?  I can't find it anywhere?

Don't know exactly where I'm fishing yet, but I will definitely be out there. It would be nice if I could get a flag this year. hahaha.  Investing in a flasher so maybe that will help.  I'm leaning towards Marcum right now.  Any suggestions?

We are adding a couple flashers to or gear this year.  My buddy has done a lot of research and he is going with Marcum.

I believe he is going with the marcum sundowner.  It has only 1/2" separation and is digital.  Its different than the old flashers that are rounded.  Its just straight up and down digital bars.  It also appears to be more light weight and not as bulky.  I have watched a few ice fishing shows and thats what they were all using.  You should be able to google it and find it for around $340-350 with free shipping.  You just have to see if its the style that you want.  Good luck and let me know later in the season what you choose and if you like it.

I have the showdown and love it. It is good to check depths on the Sacandaga but to try to jig that lake is a lost cause. If you get a school of perch around you might pick up a few.

In answer to your ? on the walleye challenge,the Mod did Pm me and asked me if I minded if he took the thread down. I told him it was fine with me. It was not my intention for it to get that negative. From now on I for one will only promote positive things about Ice fishing. That's over move on.I for one can not wait for the tourney and meet some old friends and make a few new ones.Let the fish stories begin :tipup:

If you pick up a showdown or an LX-3 or 5 by Jan 15, ice force is giving away a free tackle pack valued at $80 with a bunch of good stuff from the ice force brands.

What ice?  Sacandaga is hasn't even started to freeze. We all could be in this for the raffles. I hope ur spots had deep water, the lake is very low this year.  If you marked 20fow in the summer ur probly looking at 10 now.

I know that the water level drops every winter, one of the reasons to get up a little early and try it out. it maybe a yr to stay in the channel. the rain we are getting should bring things up a bit.

yea there is no ice around here.i notice that it is very hard to find deep water in the winter.prolly the river channels and up by the dam is the best bet.where do ya fish octanehi5?deeps or shallows?

I like to keep a few shallow,then increase in depth,the yr I won the winning tip up was only in 11 ' near shore and that was at 1;30. If you can find structure that always helps

I am not sure what you mean by saying it is where it should be this time of year. That all depends on water levels down the line. It is where they want it but way lower this year than the last two years.  Like I said,  way lower than when you took him out in ur boat over the summer.....ssminnow

The so called dead sea, does not give up big numbers of walleye in ice season. A small hole or bump on the bottom, tree stumps any small structure. A matter of being off the mark by 10' means catching fish or not.I was lucky this yr that Hunts2 long took me out on his boat.The man knows his lake. we caught walleye on every spot he showed me. You can rest assure I will be trying those spots,they should produce walleye. now on the other hand catching the winning walleye is a differant story. We caught a few last derby they did not place.but over 4 yrs we have narrowed our search. with our crew of guys from our state we have 30 tip ups in the water at all times.When a flag does go up we usually get alot of company. On average the derby usually produces about 15% of the people in the derby catch Wally.I plan on being in that 15% Lets make some ice
