I have been wanting to hit raquette. wouldnt know where to begin. Alot of water to cover. Does one have to walk really far to find them? with current ice conditions that wont be to bad but if we get any snow it will be. Congrats on the catches.

I've ice fished all over Raquette except the far far northern end and I have yet to find a place where I got skunked so no you don't have to walk too far to catch fish as they are usually well dispersed. You can probably drive to where ever you feel like fishing now. Just be aware that there is usually a pressure ridge near the needles.

I think generally speaking most people ignore the shallows in favor of deep water. Which works for lakers of course but my experience is that brook, brown, rainbow, splake, landlocks, and the occasional laker are all likely to be caught shallow or right under the ice. I've never caught a brook trout in any more than 7 ft and have caught them as shallow as a foot! The biggest laker I've ever seen caught in the fulton chain came from 10 ft.

Anyone fishing the Colby Classic or Schroon Lake tourneys this weekend? I'll be at Schroon Lake Sunday, if I can get over this bad cold I have.

Monday was my last day on Lake George, which ended with some perch and a fat lost laker.

I stay away from colby until it starts to melt and try ice out from shore. I practically live on it and hate how over fished it is. Not one trout or salmon this winter and have hit it 6-7 times. Average size to the perch has dropped significantly as well. Would love to see ice season closed other than for this tourny and a little more DEC presence over the summer months. Have heard stories from people with no direct correlation and from separate parts of the state reporting people at night filling coolers with trout. little to no carry overs with over 5000 stocked yearly.....SUCKS. All of the big ones stocked for the colby classic that dont get caught i go for in spring when it melts.
