I talked to him the other day, he says his supplier retired and not sure when he'll be doing bait again. The guy on w. Lake Rd is great.... Self serve stand with various sizes of bait fish as well as grubs and some tackle.

Does he have something to take that shows bait is certified ? In case of DEC.

I thought that I had read a post yesterday on a scheduled pike tournament on 10 February but now I can't locate that post. If anyone has information on this event, I would appreciate the particulars. Thanks.
I would call the Varysbury Hotel and ask them if they are the one having the Pike Tournament.  They have one each year in Feb.  Good luck on your search.

Stopped and bought some bait at the self-serve baitshop today and talked with the owner. Heís been ripped off twice this week including once today. A few cheap losers are going to ruin it for the rest of us.

This is BS. He needs to set up a camera and post the pictures of these A-holes all over the net. What a bunch of low lifes. He's the only game in town. Maybe if these people are publicly shamed, it will slow down. I don't have enough contempt for these jerks that steal.

Heís got a picture up of The guys truck that ripped him off. Can we post those pictures here?  So that we can help Higgins with this stuff?  I have been throwing in a few extra bucks each time to help him offset that nonsense. I figure heís saving me 20 or 30 bucks in gas not having to drive to conesus. Got to go first bite!

Fished out of Perry Public Beach from 8:00 to 1:00,  10" of solid clear ice, no snow ice.  Patchy snow on top, very easy drag.  Fished 35 FOW, bite was slow, only caught a few 8"-9" perch.  Moved to State Launch at South end at 1 pm.  Two of us caught over 40 perch in the afternoon, left the lake at 5:30 with (30) 8"-9" perch.  Ice was the same as North end.  There was a Rescue Team practicing ice rescue just to the left of the State Launch.  They had cut out large sections of ice to get to clear water.  When they left they did leave a few caution cones around the holes, but a machine moving quickly could drop into the open water, use caution in this area.

There were quite a few guys out on the lake today, any one want to give an ice report along with shore ice status? You don't have to give a fish report.  I am there every weekend and give an ice and fish report when I get home, so others may use the info., how about you guys this time.  Did not make it today but will report tomorrow nite.

Went out of State Launch at 8:30 am and shore ice was OK to get on.  You could see where the shore ice had melted away and reformed out about 6-10 ft .  Did not cut a hole through the new ice but you could see it was not as thick as the main ice sheet.  3 solid wacks with the spud did not go through.  Main ice was 8" but you could see a lot of vertical streaks or lines going from the top surface to the under water surface.  This main ice sheet must have started to "Candle" (honeycomb) during the warm spell and rain last week.  The latest cold temps have refroze the ice surface and it is hard at this time but loaded with vertical streaks and cracks in all directions.  There were a lot of pike fishermen out on the South end in the AM.  Perch bite was OK for me in the AM but better just before dark.  Very little snow on the ice.

Planning to go out of Perry beach tomorrow. Never used this access before. How is the parking and how long of a walk to get to fishing grounds?

The parking at Perry Beach they don't plow very good if there is a lot of snow, and ya the hill is a brute, steep 45* at the lake and then about 15* for 50+ yds. to the road.  I fished Perry Public Beach from 8:00 to 5:00 today, 20 yds of shore ice was a little slushy with crust on top, but safe.  Main ice was 10" black ice with inch or two of white snow ice on top.  Patchy snow on lake, very easy drag.  Fished 33 FOW, perch bite was ok until noon then very slow after that.

Plenty of room at in the perry beach parking lot. Room for maybe 12-15 vehicles. Yeah, the hill can be rough. Especially if no snow on the grass.

Looks like big landscaping and facility changes are coming to the perry town beach. Project in the works to refurbish the whole thing. Construction estimated to start in the spring. Maybe itíll mean easier access to that spot for the 2019/2020 season.

It won't.  The side street will be a dead end at the "drop off" which is intended for canoe/kayak use.  If you can drop your ice gear off there, you'd then have to drive around to the parking lot.  the parking lot will be another 50 yards up the hill.  I commented on this when it was first published.  No consideration had been given to ice fishing access at that point and I'd doubt anything has changed.

 I fished South of the Silver Lake Country (golf club) today at the top of the deep water trench in 34 FOW from 8:00 to 6:00 pm and caught a few 8-10" perch.  Fish were under me all day but only hit on and off, see graph pic below.  I entered the lake from the East side and walked across the lake.   Shore ice was good and main ice was 10" with about 2" of snow on top.  The depth on my electronics was changing from 34.4'  to 35.1' that is a .7'( 6") change.  You wouldn't believe it but the strong wind today was causing the ice to move up and down like a wave similar to a wave on open water.  It is more noticeable on larger lakes but does happen on smaller lakes also.  There was a beautiful sunset.

Fished out of Perry Public Beach to the South from 8:00 to 3:00, shore ice was packed snow cover, not a problem getting on.  Main ice was 10" black ice with inch or two of white on top.  Main ice was mainly snow covered with 1-2" of packed snow, easy drag.  Fished 34 FOW, perch bite was slow all day.  Fish were finicky and required a constant jig movement.  Two of us kept (20) 8-1/2" - 10" perch.  Lot of fishermen out today from the mid lake area to the far North end.  ECNO officers were out and checking.

Has the Bluegill fishing made any sort of comeback at the South End?  Used to be good a few years ago, but went downhill the last couple of years due to lack of weeds.....Not looking for anyone's secrets, just a general report to know if it is worth trying it again this year....

Thanks,

Phil
