Was out this evening.  Ice was a good 6".  Little snow on top of glare ice.  Kreepers are a must.  Hit a wet pocket comimg off.  About 5" of water on the ice under a skim layer.

Thanks -  Might do a dry run from N. Tonwanda to fish before the WNY get together on the 6th. I am really looking forward to it.

How was the fishing?

I seen you found the information on the other post. I have been following it since it started. Yes it sounds like there will be a complete army on the ice that day.
As mentioned, I really am looking for to meeting people who are part of this network.

I will be in a 4 man black Killzone shanty. I have a Polaris 500HO  Just me and my two teenagers. Wife died so I am raising them myself.

Happy fishing see ya there.......

Ice is a build-in.  Was out from 6 till 10 this am.  Must have herd a dozen different pressure cracks.  One got me up and out of the shanty in a hurry.  Alot more black ice now than there has been yet.  Still be very careful on the edge, a bit broke up.

Nik,  check the date on that gathering.  That was in 2010.  No ice, no gathering this year.

Sugar maple to be exact.  Close to 10,000 taps will be in over the weekend.  Hope you find some goodies there.
