Big guy I didn't refer to you as stupid sorry if you took it that way. I know you can figure things out your no rookie. Interesting that the under 20 fow is also producing well. The bite does get finicky about 10-10:30...the dinks move in heavy. I was playing with the swarm Sunday trying to see how far I could lift the swarm off the bottom. 16 ft of solid fish with no gaps. Yep the bay is loaded with perch. I have been averaging about 30-35 over 10inches.Good luck have fun.

That area is always questionable. But yes use caution.

Does everyone? Probably not. But it is the law in NYS at all times while on ATV. Operator and passengers.

I am going to assume he meant DEC police cause of a regular police asked me for my fishing license and to see my fish I'd laugh at them and keep walking no police but DEC police have jurisdiction to ask for a fishing license or to check your fish

Nothing has changed at sodus I have fished the same hole all season with the same results 30-60 quality fish brought home every time and deep water is not where I have been fishing less than 20fow all season for me.
Maybe where you are fishing this is true .......sorry to burst your bubble Dude but the ice over by the channel is weak and with comments like yours someone is likely to get killed over there ..........

Yeah that's exactly it lol trying to keep people off the ice? Out of the amount of people that fish sodus, the percentage is minuscule that even know this site exists i'm sure of it. Lot of old timers don't keep up with this stuff and I can't really blame them.  That NE wind this past weekend created a lot more open water. Although what ice is there is safe. Just obviously distance yourself from open water. But where I crushed the perch the other day, that's unsafe, you can't go there  :whistle: :roflmao:

After a thaw we should all be using caution.

I can't state it any other way: there is many many air bubbles trapped in the ice.
Even though the ice is thick in spots, air bubbles in the ice is never a good thing, and does not make the ice as safe as sold d black ice throughout. I heard cracking as I was walking to spots also last weekend.

WE ALL NEED TO USE CAUTION

I am not trying to keep people away. As a local guy, I know some little known access spots that I will not share, and I also have private permission and access for other spots too.

I am simply stating the facts, that the ice is not uniform, and there is many spots that have air bubbles trapped in the ice.

Please also be aware that we got a decent amount of snow and freezing rain this week, use caution.

I bring my Spud with me on every single trip, no matter how thick the ice is. I use my Spud when there is snow on top just as much as I use it during early ice.

I cannot report how much snow is on the ice as I have not been out since last Sunday.

Use caution and stay on top.
A bad day of fishing is better than a good day at work.

Fake news, ice looked mint
I agree. Must be Democrats giving the fake ice reports again. Lol just kidding looked weird but when I figured out what was going on stopped even worrying bout the cracks.

Hey guys, not looking for handouts and I have thoroughly read both Sodus threads, but Iím asking for advice. Taking my 9 year old son out for his first time ice fishing and I want him to have some action. Seems like Sodus is putting up plenty of perch to keep him interested. Most of the reports Iíve read reference third creek. Looks like about a half mile walk to the start of the perch grounds. How is parking at 3rd creek? Do you think this is a good approach? It would be nice to catch some better fish but I donít really care about the size, I just want the kid to have some action. Any opinions?

Lots of parking there,if you go on the weekend be there by 5:30 to avoid the rush.Been there 6 times and done well every time.From what I've seen I would suggest being there and set up before the sun comes up.

Third creek at about 7:30am. I have 2 hour plus drive so I'll never be there much earlier. Ice access about where red arrow is. A jig and spikes or wax worms will elicit a lot of action. You dont necessarily have to go out as far as everyone else to get action either. Hope all goes well and good luck ;D

Oh and don't forget the snacks n drinks ;) that was for many years my boys favorite part when they were young, stopping and letting them get what they wanted to take. Shoot they were in there upper teens and it was still part of it lol.

I've been fishing out of third creek all season same spot. I'm not going to give exact location but it about a mile out and less than 20 foot of water. Stay away from the crowd and that's all I will give you. Have had a great season took my fifth trip yesterday and it was the best day so far.
