with regards to the 14" perch from chautauqua lake, i know if i caught some i would have seperate pics of those slobs for sure............ ;D
i hear ya,  i think somebody's tape measurer is broken :whistle: biggest one i caught outta there was maybe 11.5", i highly doubt anyone has caught a 14" slab let alone 7 of them in one day!!   ..... by the way, good way to give a kid good memories flybuster :thumbsup: :clap:   nice crappie!!!
When hell freezes over, i'll be ice fishing there too!!

We took our ATV's from Prendergast Access Point to the Bell Tower last year. On the way back we stopped several times and caught more perch there than at the Bell Tower. Probably due to the lack of fishing pressure in the area. Get away from the crowds. it could be better.
You can not take too many perch, unless you can not clean them, give them to your friends and neighbors to clean and cook. The more perch you take, the faster and bigger the rest  will grow. The walleyes and bass will survive from fry to fingerlings.

jimski I agree. I do not own a machine and with the slush as it is I am not venturing too far, but if I had the choice I would get away from the crowds. I have a good lake map and see some spots that are unreachable this year on foot, but if I had a machine would be nice to have an area all to myself.

I haven't seen any recent posts since the "storm" in regards to slush on the conditions thread so I figured I'd give it a shot here, hopefully without getting scolded.  Was thinking of fishing Saturday but I'm still hurting mentally and physically from a nightmare drag on Bear Lake.  Any recent updates on slush conditions?  Thanks in advance for any responses.

I fished cassadaga which was in worse shape than chatauqua  pre "storm", it is now 2 inches of snow on top of 10-12" pretty frozen slush. Nice walking for a small guy . Fishing was dead as usual and I only gave it 2 mid-day hours.

(Image removed from quote.)out of all the fish i caught this year i think these two  are the best, got to spend a couple hours out                                                                                               with the boy.....his first crappie
Great pic... He looks stoked.... When he starts outfishing dad I will have to go catch limits with him instead...  :roflmao:

JonnyDarter, seen you guy's out there on Bear last weekend. Seen you or your buddy fall down and lay there a while. Bear is to tough to walk on, as bad as Mayville has been it's a breeze compared to Bear. I was glad to see your buddy get up. I thought we were going to have to call for help.

Bear was horrific, as I'm sure most of the smaller lakes are out that way.  My friend had to take a breather after burying both legs in the slush and trying to move forward, haha.  Thanks for being observant though.  Ice was fine, everything on top of it was not.  Definitely not worth fishing.  Hopefully Chautauqua is in better shape...

flybuster go to one of the local bait shops (grizzly gary's, happy hooker, or hogan's hut) you can sign up there it is a team event it is for panfish it is a fun event with a cool looking trophy going to the happy hoo... wait I mean the winning shop. Gonna be a good time. fishing starts at 8am and ends at noon I assume we will hang out and fish after noon as well , at least I know I will. Come on down should be fun. the following saturday we are gonna have our second annual chatauqua get together at Long Point State Park. Hoping to do something for the kids again . Last year we had a derby for the kids and they all won something . I would like to do an adult, perhaps cash tourney that day also, but we would need to find someone willing to be a judge , seeing as I want to fish and dont think it would be a good idea  for a participant to be a judge.

I dont think it would be bad if there was a team say, 3 judges that participated in the event, two judges score all entries and obviousley you cant score your own fish... I would have faith in a system like that anyway....as far as the money there is only so much hard water in wny you couldent hide forever :callcops:

There is now a big reward out for my silver and black J9 rapala.  A pig of a female eye decided she wanted it more than me.  I got two good looks at her before she broke 10# mono.  Please help as my favorite lure is gone.
