it was very noisy on harris today, with the ice cracking. i got skunked for the first time this year, what a way to start 09 lol. but the ice was thicker, about 4-5 inches again. 
It's a good thing we've got these crazy dudes to keep us up to date on the borderline areas. I'm guessing bird's been in the drink at least once in his life. Not ripping just poking fun. Thanks for the updates. The early "bird" gets the worm. rrrr perch.
The angle of the dangle is directly proportionate to the heat of the beat.

was out there too...it was weird fishing so close to open, choppy water :pinch:  there was a very strong westerly current in the area i fished, so strong in fact that when i used smaller jigs they drifted so far off to the side i had trouble reading it on the Vex.  Weird.  fish were very inactive, coming excruciatingly slow off the bottom to inspect the offering, and more often than not just swimming away.  (maybe the current had something to do with it) I came home with enough keepers for dinner, but it was SLOW.

for bait i use a small haili jig tipped with spikes. sometimes a swedish pimple. and days like yesterday when fish are finiky i put a tiny moon jig or ice fly a foot above  my haili tipped with a spike. 2 pound floro carbon line. many use tips ups but i move around way too much looking for the "devine honeyhole". not many options on lake george yet as most of iit is not safe.YET  ::)

hey Hood...isn't it funny, here's a 32 mile long lake that only yields 6'' perch ::) ::) ::) Seems like many of these guys only want to fish quick access areas and not do a little scouting on their own...anyways, I'll bring the beer. 8)
