Silver lake fishing
« on: Jan 13, 2016, 12:33 AM »
Hi everyone.  I've been off this site for 2 years because I couldn't remember my password lol!  I did the password change and never got an email back so on a whim I tried one of my million passwords and it worked.  Anyway. I was introduced to ice fishing years ago at silver lake and over the past 4, I was able to get my own gear and get back into it.  I'd like to fill a bucket with bluegill.  If anyone would like to join me and possibly point me in the right direction again I would be very happy.  When I go, it's usually on saturday from dark to dark.  It takes me an hour and 20 to get there.  Not opposed to pike either...

From what ive heard from a friend who fishes it the bluegill fishing isnt nearly what it used to be. I wish you good luck though and stay safe
That's a Bluegill, no that's a Sunfish...I've heard it both ways!!

Its not a big lake. Access is easier at the south end. Keep moving until you find a clear spot in the middle of the weeds. It will be a travel corridor, so to speak. Close the shanty up tight and sight fish all the bluegills you care to catch. Just remember to keep what you eat, and throw some back to grow up.

Go to WeatherBug and put in Perry NY. You can get a shot of the lake. I think it's the north end. But its locked up. Saw a guy fishing out there today on the camera.

Saw the shanty my buddy and  I got ready and went out. Only to turn around again. Had a long rope trekked out about 60 yard from public beach. Would have fished on a bucket with one person but wasn't safe for two people in a shanty. Ice was 3 or 4 inches of crappy white. Some spots had another 3 inches crap on top which my buddy fell through. Was kinda funny but not safe for more than one light person. Very little snow on top I'd wait another day at least. This weekend would probably be fine.

There were huts out there on the silver lake cam.  Not sure exactly where it points.

hmmm...no reports on fish yet.  Didn't fish the lake last year, but heard it wasn't a good year for numbers of fish. Maybe it will pick up this year

I would wait another week to unsafe yet, not worthy of getting wet . The rain and warm temps today  will make it to unsafe for this 200lbs man. Too soon....

I was fishing in front of Max's last Friday. Three inches of ice. The warm weather screwed that up bad. 45° right now. Probably have to wait and check ice on Wednesday.
