Another new guy
« on: Jan 27, 2019, 09:43 PM »
New guy introducing myself. I have been fishing on open water since I was a kid, but never went ice fishing before Saturday. A buddy has been trying to get me into it for years, but I have always been a snowmobiler in the winter. Gave that up this year due to getting tired of traveling to ride and having a young daughter. Went out to Opossum Lake in Cumberland County and caught my first fish on Saturday. I met delfisher out there and he gave me a few tips, thanks again! I live in the Carlisle area and will likely be fishing Opposum Lake and Holman Lake primarily. May get a trip in to visit my buddy in Northeastern PA or fish at my in-laws in the Syracuse area or the Eastern Shore of Lake Ontario. I have been reading up on here and decided to finally sign up and make a post. Thanks for all the good information!

Welcome Fish4Nate.  Good bunch of guys on this site.  Very helpful.  If you ever plan on fishing NEPA area, you can get a lot of information here.  The archived fishing reports section is a good source for many lakes up this way.  Enjoy your new addiction!

In the Syracuse area you may want to check out Oneida lake. I hear good things about the walleye bite up there.

Welcome to the site. I hate the cold but love ice fishing. If you can figure that out let me know. It is an addiction.

Thanks all for the warm welcome! Heading to New York this weekend. May hit up a small pond near Baldwinsville where my in-laws live or head up to fish Six Town Pond in Henderson, NY or fish Henderson Harbor.

Welcome and enjoy ice fishing.  I started ice fishing at 4 years old, but stopped going for many years and have started in backup in the past 5 years.  This past weekend I invited some friends (non-fishermen) out for an annual ice fishing trip.  Unfortunately it was Saturday and the cold/wind put a hamper on the enjoyment.

Just another new guy here. Been fishing my whole life. Grew up fishing moraine, live in Pittsburgh. Love bass fishing but starting to branch off and having a ton of fun jigging for crappie and gill through the ice. Hope I can help out with posts and point people in the right direction.

Muddy Creek is the first to freeze on Arthur and a lot of largemouths come through the ice there.
