Yesterday morning @7:30 am there was skim ice on 90% of White Lake. I forgot to check temp. At 8pm on my way back through it was 23 f. Maybe we are getting somewhere. Wonder if we will get on SWB this year as well.

Looking to fish either north-south lake, morningside, or Lake Superior tomorrow. Iíve never been to any of them. Would anyone be able to recommend one over the other as far as general production goes? Would like to chase flags all day and maybe jig a few perch or crappie up

Try north/south we generally have decent days. Decent perch and pickerel will keep you busy

Yesterday I went from a lake higher up near Roscoe where people were snowmobiling down to white lake where there is only a few inches in spots. Amazing how a half hour ride can make a difference.

I pass through there a lot during deer season. There are big patches on Waneta that stay open a little longer. It seems more like springs than methane. Thanks for the update.  Thanks Diehard for the contest info.

Waneta. Roadside mid-lake where the road is closest to lake thereís a creek coming in and itís mostly from underground so that cove can be sketchy. The southern end is shallower with no inlets and first to be fishable ice. I fish often in summer down that way around the lily pad islands with stump fields underneath. Thatís where the Bass and Crappies hang out. Surprisingly rarely if ever a pickerel with all that structure. I guess they really do like the grass.

Fished waneta on Tuesday down toward the deep end. Drilled 25+ holes and didnít find less than 6in of ice but stayed along the shoreline opposite to the road

I can tell you that ice wasn't bothered much. Was out on a public lake this morning 5 solid inches. I would absolutely use caution, but there is ice to be had. A few bass and that was it.

YUP! I know and the answer is NO!

Bait shop update for Sullivan County.

There could be more places but here is what I do know NOW for 2021
Any other places I missed please just add them to this list.

Sports Nuts in Rock Hill
Farm and Home store in Monticello on 17B just past Maplewood Auto
Agway in Liberty
Fur Fin and Feather in Livingston Manor

In the border counties there is Tom's in Fair Oaks-Orange County and Tom's Taxidermy in Wawarsing-Ulster County
If I agreed with you we would both be wrong!
