Cant say we caught any trout like others but the smelt cloud was 3/4 deep in the column using a vex..  They were easy to catch..  Hali perch color jig with spikes.. Spring tip works well as they bite lite..

small jigs with grubs hali or a small pimple.pimples seem to hold the lakers better when and if you hook one up.you might find them any where from 0 to 100.tc5

Fished south basin today, one keeper sized laker, on icicle 8ft under ice, returned,  picked up tipups at 12:30, then drove snowmobile around jigging for lakers,  lookers but no takers.  Fun

We used to jig for perch on the sunken island, bass in summer.  Occasional laker.  Drops off like a cliff,  wonder what electronics would show????

don't think it matters what color your dropping when jigging for smelt,they bite on any color,its the hook and whats on it. i've gotten hundreds using just about ever color. the hali's with the smaller chain and hook works best.

Used to fish the suken island all the time.  It always seemed to be pretty good for lakers the first couple weeks after good ice and then the action would drop right off.  Have not been out there in a couple of years, but that was my experience.  Once saw a guy catch about a 12 pound northern in 80 FOW on the north side of the isalnd.  Would not have believed it except he did it right in front of me.  Can be a great smallmouth spot in the summer if you can be there at the crack of dawn.

X2  It's kind of like hunting, would you rather hunt state land that's pounded by hunters,  or private land that you have pretty much to yourself.  Think of how Schroon is fished in the winter, there are areas that are pounded every day, while prime areas are virtually left unfished.

Fished Schroon for the first time last Saturday with my son. Used small shiners on tip ups and wax worms for jigging.
He got three lakers on jigging and we got three more on tip ups.
Had a blast and the fishing was awesome.
Will go back again next time I get put there for a visit.

Same here TC5.  We'll have to fish Schroon before the season ends.
