I just wanted to give a big thank you to all the sportsman out there telling stories and posting pics on this thread. I've really enjoyed reading it and it has sparked an interest in the sport that I didn't previously have. This being my first year on the ice I have never fished for lakers before but because of all the awesome pics and videos I've seen I will be gearing up next year.

Well excuse me jon ny for not saying thank you for your info what ever it was. I usually send a thank you to anyone i ask ice conditions, or where i can fish for both laker and perch in one area. Other than that i don't access from private property so i don't care how many  owners shut down there land.  I'm just saying in my opinion that posting pics, and sharing success stories every day can't  help the situation any. It only draws more people .

You're right but there is way too many people on here, both members and lurkers, there are other sites (but we won't mention them), and there are publications (newspapers, magazines) that talk about lake George and publish/post pictures. You can't stop it. Its like getting upset that your favorite restraunt is crowded because people have found out how good the food is.  ;D

Hey bait box think this is bad, wait till Brookie season is in full swing. We will have to start parking trucks at diff ponds so no one finds our ponds.

cant people just shut up and fish.... why does there have to be so much hostility... personally if i owned lakefront property i would never let anyone use it for access or maybe charge 10 bux a vehicle... people are gonna be messy and there gonna park where ever they want the only thing WE can do is mind our own buissness maybe pick up some trash.. if one spot gets closed down big deal there are 100's of other places to go so chill out and fish

Fidlerontheice,   how much ice where you cutting and how deep could you get on the retreating ice? Heading up that way tomorrow morning any info. would be appreciated.

I will be bringing my snowmobile as I have a 3 guy crew with a ton of gear.  Targeting pike and lakers.  Any recommendations for other spots would be great. I have fished vets mostly and hearthstone,harris and mbd once each. 30-60 FOW would be swell :) 

 :tipup:

I had about 6 hard black ice 1.5 of white crap on top of that and was fishing in 25fow. It is just getting worse with the weather. And the bubblers keeping the water open near shore ate away close too 2 feet of ice in the 4 hrs I was out there. Lots of slush.

It's disheartening too read all the hostility, post ur picks, bust some balls, tell the conditions, share advice... That's what we are on iceshanty for correct, I may be new but I know that's why everyone else joined.... Do what u love too do... Load up and go fishing!!!  As far as the guys with private access, keep it a secret...If it gets invaded, crowded, or littered its your resposibilty just as much as the property owners if not more so yours,too make sure nobody is trespassing, it's just like hunting... If I'm hunting private property and somebody's there that's not supposed tobe, u let them know they need permission too park or access from there... It's your permission slip that's riding on it... Not there's.  and I'm sure your owners would appreciate it... Now go fishing!!!!!

yea im all done. and adkroy you are right. You can't stop the chaos that is going on. I don't ask for anyone's special spot and never would. Don't care where you fish. I access from the public lands and hope they will still be around for years to come. Now that i T'd some people off for expressing my freedom of speech, and opinion i will drop this and do as always. Go fish and don't care about anything else.

wow,im kinda blown away by all the b***hen,i would like to say, if wasn't for guys like,baitbox, Jon NY,jager,mealworm,bigredonice,lake George jeff,colmsby,swatchman 5,schroonlaker and most of all ICEWADERER,this site would not be very good or informative,thanks too all you guys for sharing what you can!!! i appreciate all of you guys and your knowledge and willingness to help fellow anglers,i always try to do the same,if guys think thats bragging or boasting, that's usually a sign jealousy or envy!that being said,how many times have you seen guys fishing your spots,weather its on ice or open water,they been there for hours with know luck or know how,you walk up and bang ur on the board! i must be doing something wrong,when really your just doing something slightly different!!!32 miles of lake, for all will find away to access and fish,most people with common sense,know not to trash access points.kindness goes a long way and so does karma!!! fishertom34.

ALL RIGHT   Let's get something straight. Im not jelious of filled with envy because of all the pic's and talk about your fish. I could care less. Evendently some people are not getting what im trying to say without putting a lable on that person. Keep posting, no problem, but don't cry about private access being shut down. No it's not the internet that draws s bags and law breakers. It's all the BS about the lake that draws. ya think we can drop this now ??? ???

Aight fellas. I'm cutting in for a second.
This is one of the best threads of the year for a lot of us. Please help us keep it that way.
I've nixed a couple cuss words and am trying my best to keep everyone friendly on this thread.
Don't make us work too hard for it. Bossman is a slave driver and we work for peanuts.  ;D

Fished out from vets park. Slow day 10 perch of 11". Fished from 10-230. Noticed the open water had come in a since saturdat. Almost to the tip of the island passed the sagamore. Closer inspection showed the winds pushing the water onto the ice and eating it away. Hopung we will have a cold snap to slow it down a bit .
when you say island past sagamore do you mean the island out in front of sagamore ( crown, isnt it?) or the tip of the island the sagamore is on? which would be green island.that tip being right there in front of the bay.. because if its green island thats a big expansion and changes everything. appreciate any clarification. hoping to hit it sat ;)

iv got a german shepherd I bring out with me once and while if the conditions are right. if its wet she doesn't like it. if its glare ice she doesn't like it. but if its just snow on the ice she will stay out there all day. shes at the point now that if she sees a flag go up she runs to it before we do its pretty funny.

Not the island the sagamore is on. I would say crown then. It wasn't that pretty out there the ice was a bad color. I didnt get real close since I was out there alone. You aren't getting out into the deep water there but you might make it around the sagamore and get to dome if you are careful.
