Good afternoon as of five thirty this morning Rgfixit locked the poll.(thread NYS gathering) At that time 95 members had voted,49 replies were posted and the poll had 757 views. The results will stat up for a few days while we decide what we want to do,I'm listing the voting results here to save you time.

  Oneida lake -37 votes  38.5% of total votes
   Sandy pond-7 votes   7.3%
   Lake George - 19 votes  19.8%
   Meacham lake-6 votes   6.3%
   Regional gathering- 19 votes  19.8%
   State gathering -* votes  8.3%
 Based on this info. I propose several regional gathering scattered around the state.To date three members have said they would coordinate/host a gathering Pooley from Suffern,NY. (see his thread Southeast NY. gathering) ,Neversink Jimmy from Albany small gathering at his home on Synder's lake,and Fishing Fool from Rochester,NY. has said he will post about a gathering on Honeyone or Conesus Lakes. I do not know the date/dates for any of these events yet. Given the large vote total for Oneida lake we should try to have a gathering there hopefully some one from that area will come forward and agree to coordinate.
   I know who one of the voters for Meacham Lake is unfortunately he only recently moved to the area ,so he may have limited knowledge of bait shops ,lodging ,etc. I will send him a personal message to See if would coordinate a gathering there.(northern Adirondacks)
    Members who voted for Sandy pond and Lake George could do the same and hold gatherings at those lakes. Also there a numerous tournaments/derbies throughout the state where members could arrange to meet.
   If the three members mentioned here could please post dates when they will hold gatherings ,we All can make plans which one/ones we Will attend. Sorry to be so wordy.   Mr.Clean-Steve

Greetings,
  I have sent personal messages to Fishing Foool and the other member about hosting/coordinating regional gatherings and waiting for their replies.
   I would really like to get events set date and location wise ASAP, working in the retail field advance notice must be given if I'm going to get a day/weekend off to attend one of these gatherings.
   Sorry if I'm being a pest.

Good evening just to update all of you ,member Asp Fisherman is hosting a Southwestern,NY. gathering on MLk weekend Jan.17-19,2009. at Chautauqua lake please look for his thread. I received a reply from Fishing Foool(he mentioned hosting a gathering at Honeoye or Conesus lakes ) he is thinking of a social gathering food/drink no prizes. I asked him to pm me or post the date/location. I have not yet heard from the member who lives near Meachum Lake.
Since Oneida lake received the most votes in the poll I propose a gathering there on Sat.Feb.28.2009. I will do some research and post on lodging/baitshops where we will meet to access the ice. Mr.clean-Steve

Good evening I looked through the bait shop list in the New York news and info, section and found the following shops near Oneida lake.
    1.Mickey's bait-tackle
     715 south bay
     North Syracuse,NY. 315-458-7998
    2. Gander Mountain
     5864 Carmencia road   Cicero,NY  near RT.81 315-698-1100   open 7 am
     3. Not Just Bait
     1367 RT.49 near hatchery  Constantia,NY.
     4. South Shore Sportsmen's shop 
        Lakeport,NY.     315-633-0630
      5.Marion Manor (aka Jigs Trading Post)
     corner of RT.13-RT.31  Sylvan Beach,NY.  315-762-4810
     6. Apps -Cleveland,NY. by state docks -just east of Vellas Market
   If any one knows of others or that one of these shops no longer exists please post. I will use some search engines to find lodging and look over the map and book I have on Oneida to see which access point offers the most parking and is closest to known ice fishing grounds.
    Finally there appears to be some confusion about the date the gathering will be held on Sat.Feb.28,2009

well guys onieda has my vote too and i fish it all the time and let me tell you its a ice fishing gem for walleyes and perch but you have to have electronics because wlleyes and perch on tip ups are very rare in numbers even when your right on top of the fish... alsoits located right smack dab in the middle of the state so its great for a gathering of members there is the turning stone casino 5 min away with lodging all over 5 star and if your like me and dont want to drop a 100 to 150 a night on a room there are alot of mom and pop hotels to accomodate as for a banquet or dinner after we hit the lake that could be easily arranged im thinking with so many guys interested in onieda and not having fished it we should do a gathering there with a tourney but fun outing with a buy in to cover cash prizes and cover the dinner im guessing like 25 to 35 would be about the going rate wel if anyone has questions about fishing the lake or whoever posted this idea give me a call id be more than glad to help organize it Ryan O'Grady 315-272-9199 team smoke shack#1

Just to update everyone I found websites for Oneida and Oswego counties tourism. The site for Oneida county is www.oneidscountycvb.com .
  For Oswego county the site is below.

      www.vistoswegocounty.com

   There is a list of some establishments on the thread NYS gathering.

Never fished Oneida before, and coming from Long Island I have a couple of questions:

1.  Why so many entry points??  Can't we all get on in one spot so we can actually have a complete IS meeting?

2.  We have no on-ice transportation.  How far must we walk out to get into some decent fishing?

3.  Are we (IS) members setting up in a central area so we can meet each other??  Where is that??

Not looking forward to hte 6-7 hour drive to get there, but it's worth it to get together and fish with other IS guys.  Looking forward to some good fishing and some good fun.

See you there

from new york game and fish magazine.

ONEIDA LAKE
Oneida Lake is the ultimate year-round sport fishery in New York, where the numbers of fishermen on the ice during winter weekends equal the openings in spring of the walleye and bass seasons.





 

 

They fish essentially the same areas including shoals, bars and dropoffs. Walleyes are the prime target for hardwater anglers, and according to researchers, the population is back up to average numbers.



The large Shackleton Shoals in the middle of the lake is the most noted walleye-perch hotspot. A cluster of shoals off Constantia, including Pancake, Grassy and Dakin, are also popular fish magnets, along with Messenger Shoal in the east end. Perch and panfish are also taken in good numbers on Oneida.



The most successful walleye fishermen use the new non-stretch, ultra-thin lines. At 6-pound-test, the line diameter is threadlike. At the end, they use two feet of 4- or 6-pound-test fluorocarbon leader, and a jigging spoon with half a minnow.



Oneida Lake lies north of Syracuse. I-81 crosses the west end. Take exits 30, 31 or 32 to routes 31, 13 and 49 which surround the lake. Excellent access is provided at Three Mile Bay off Route 49, five miles south of Central Square; at Toad Harbor off Shaw Drive in the town of West Monroe; and at Godfrey Point adjacent to Route 49, one mile east of Cleveland.

Just to get every one on the same page the date is Sat. Feb. 28,2009 on Oneida lake. Also I'm asking if all of you could please use this thread to post responses/comments, rather then I having to check two threads. (NYS gathering and here) Thank you.
         To answer Ice Balls and Pooley's question I posted a bunch of access points in hopes of hearing from fellow members which one(s) are located closer to known ice fishing spots. Last year when CNY Panfisher and others got to gether on Oneida they accessed the lake out of Constantia,NY. looking at a map of the lake it appears Pancake and some of the other shoals Pooley mentioned are nearby around two to three miles out from shore.  This seams to be the case with most spots. (Messanger shoal, etc.)
      Fishing Foool stated in a reply to the NYS gathering thread that he believes Apps bait shop in Cleveland ,
NY. runs a shuttle service. (does anyone know if this is true or have Apps phone number I could not find a listing using Yellow Pages.com )

    Member Team Smoke Shack (Ryan O'grady) suggested a possible post ice banquet and cash prize(s) . I see problems with this for a banquet a number count and deposit would be required also some attending will want to fish the aft/evening hours for the late Walleye bite. Personally I prefer everyone who wants in on the prizes to bring a donation (tipup,poles jigs,line)for a prize pool. I or someone else get name phone number/address of members participating in pool. After fishing fishing we could meet at a predetermined Restaurant/bar to socialize-distribute prizes with the list those choosing not to come could be mailed their prize. Or we could just have a grab bag every member bring a wrapped prize and each one then pick from collection. (Say ten dollar value for prizes save the trouble of measuring/weighing fish and keeping a tote board.)
  Finally try the Orbitz's website for lodging most of their listings are in the Syracuse or Uttica/Rome areas and range from $55 to $200/plus a night.
   I will personal message Cny Panfisher and Mr.O'grady for their knowledge and feelings about meeting and fishing out of Constantia.

You should get rgfixit to sticky this page to the top of the NY general forum so everyone can see it.

Also post any relevant information on the FIRST post, on the FIRST page so people don't have to read 10 pages of text to see what is going on.

Maybe start a new thread with all information about parking, where to meet for prize pool, sign up sheet like they do for the tournament here, also is anyone going to donate 5-10 bux to local fire dept??

As far as a ice taxi, if people come without wheels, why pay for a ride? If people here are going to be there with wheels, I am sure if you make arrangements we could all get out in the same general area. Strong walkers can get to good spot easily, weak walkers can get rides as well.

There is a great amount of parking in Constantia, some right by the lake, some across the road about 200 feet from the lake, an some at the town hall which would be best for people with vehicles. Taft park is also good in Bernhards bay area, 3 miles east of Constantia, and Godfrey point is 7 miles east of Constantia, that's if you want to get away from the crowd. I think the whole idea of a get-together is just that, fish in 1 general area so you can go around and BS with the crew.

Last year we had almost 100 sign up, and about 10 showed up, 1/2 were from here in town. I would prefer you not say you are coming, than BS people into thinking a large group will show up. I almost made arrangements for a pre-fishing buffet at a local restaurant, good thing I didn't.

Ah well, 2 months to get it together, i'll help, and big scoops of minnows to all comers, i'll be at Eddies/NJB early in the morning.

Also, if you want to get in the prize pool and get your prizes, you MUST go to the reception area and stay till the deadline to get into the pool. I still have powdiddy's stuff from last year sitting here at my house. He couldn't stick around as he had to trip across the lake, and didn't want to drive after dark to the south shore.

Crappieslayer tried driving over Scriba creek, we are going to get him a set of swimmies like they have for the kiddies in the pool this year, so he will be OK. Just remember to the left of the access in Constantia is Scriba creek, go straight out or to the right. The mouth of the creek will be locked up just fine by the end of February, just don't go up the creek to RPM's. lmmfao

Pooley thank you I'm assuming you got the names from the NYS gathering-poll thread.
  Cny Panfisher thank you for the information and sugestions. Just for everyones info. a company called Fishing Hot Spots,Inc. (A Recon maps&charts company ) makes a waterproof map of Oneida lake .All the areas mentioned by Cny Panfisher are located on the north shore of the lake. I purchased my copy at a local super market in the sporting goods dept. also seen them at Gander Mountain . Here is a hyperlink to the companies website ,the Oneida lake map is map number  S490

        www.reconmc.com   I will post more tomorrow ,also member August West is a friend of the owners of Angler's Bay Cottages(Abc Cottages). If enough of us book a cabin we may be able to use this property as an access point.
