Sandy pond ice..
« on: Dec 26, 2007, 06:35 PM »
Would anyone happen to know the condition of the ice at Sandy? is the Wig Wam still a  good place to park? ( haven't fished there in a good 30 yrs. so i figure some current info. would be a good thing).
 Also, is there okay parking at the Greene point area ? i seem to remember that spot also as being where we used to fish.
 Thank you in advance from a former "lurker" who is now a "member".......

I have never fished sandy and can't wait for good ice on oneida was thinking of heading up early next week it sounds like the wigwam is the place to park but from 81 how do i get there and how far out is the walk on the ice and what depth am I looking to fish. not looking for any one's hotspot just general info  to get started Also any special lures or same stuff as I use for Oneida perch and walleyes.

how would you find the "elms" or any other place besides the Wigwam, i don't mind going to the wigwam either, i just would like more options, it's about an 1 1/2 drive for me. i also heard of some points(?) any help for sandy pond would be great.
thanks,
john

I fished at the wigwam wed,and thurs.about 5 inches.Half crap ice half black with some slush under the ice.Never seen that before ???.Got into some perch mostly dinks and 1 pike I couldn't get thru a 5" auger hole.

The "Elms" is a golf course north on RT 3.You'll have to take a left off RT3 to go past their "Club House" there is a small area that anglers can park there.Its been free to access the pond there for years.So far soo good on no one trashing the area.By all means if that small lot is full of vehicle DO NOT park long side of the road!!!

Not sure about Greene Point but I heard they are doing well with gills and crappie near the elms.You'll have to pay $5 to park @ the wigwam or greene point.

Finally looks like next week to really lock up some better ice conditions, and there is no snow on the ice wear spikes or creepers to walk around.I'll be back out next wednesday and thursday on my days off.

Good luck and be safe  :tipup:

I was on it yesterday, had a hard time getting off @ the wig. We did lose a ton of ice. Were down to no more then 4 inches mostly all white ice. The shore line lost a foot and we all ended up with a wet foot trying to get onto shore. It will be a few days before I go back on sandy.

I found out today that it is sketchy at best for conditions on the pond today.A guy I know went out and turned around a left it was unsafe even wallking out with 2 people.Will have to wait til this week when cold weather returns and makes it safe.

Went by the Elms this morning + the spot was pretty sketchy and I saw some open water as well. We left as there was nobody else about, and things looked a little sketchy. Went to big bay instead, 4 inches white ice with slush underneath, but only 1 bluegill.

Things were really good on the pond, has anyone else seen perch this big before there? We always caught mostly dinks, maybe when they opened the channel up more fish came in?
