If I knew the way then I would take you home."  Robert Hunter & Jerry Garcia

Scored another eye this am.  Buddy had a musky on that we couldn't fit up a 6" hole.  Good morning in all.  Fishing is warming up on schedule.

I also have a 7 year old daughter who loves to ice fish with her dad, I am enjoying it for now, because I know her interests in both me and fishing may be replaced when she reaches a certain age I sure hope in  a few years she will still be into this and have her own account here.

    Well im past that certain age but I pretty much grew up at Chautauqua Lake My uncle owns 2 cottages out there and it was our weekend home till my grandfather got really sick and we couldn't go on the weekends ....I also enjoy open water fishing My brother and I used a friends kayaks and after catching our limit on crappies we purchased our own kayaks. I love fishing out of a kayak ...to keep her into it  try some new things maybe even a canoe if a big boat can't be bought. When Spring comes I can't wait to paddle into some bay's and see if the crappie are there again like last year  ;D

Hogan's Hut is on 394 right next to I-86, if you're coming from the I-90 raynors emporium is right on 394 in westfield, about a mile or 2 towards the lake after you get off the thruway

How much more snow for slush making?  Anyone want to guess what this storm will dump on us this week?
I thought that we might start getting rid of snow storms when lake Erie froze.  lol NOT!!!

Hooked a pike this evening, thought it was a good eye. That's BS.  Global warming is BS.

The slush was terrible Sunday. Went out of Midway, and was a foot deep. Ended up dragging hut back later, and joining a friend at Burtis. Slush was bad there also. Dragged his hut in, and had to go back out to help him pull his sled in. It looked like he was snow plowing with the sled. Worst drags I ever had. Fishing is definitely slower than the last 2 years. Ton`s of dinks.

Just keep releasing the dinks and help their numbers stay up there.
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.

Glad the freezing rain was not as bad as the forcast.  I hate when I'm tempted to drill in the driveway.  Anyone have any snow or ice reports for Western NY?

gomaco your best bet, and to keep the people of the institute happy would be to launch  mayville or prendergrast and drive to the bell tower. The parking is very limited and already way too crowded. I have seen people launch atv's here, but I personally do not think it is a good idea due to parking and the fact that it is private and can be yanked at any time. Also it is not a long walk to the productive area. I know it is slushy, but there is much better places to launch a machine.
