You're on, mate! When do we go?

Of course for the hardwater season it will require some effort: I need at least a 50 foot long trench cut in the ice in order to cast a fly.

Actually flies are used by ice fishermen more than you would think. Usually for panfish though and not with a fly rod! VT, rumor has it that 50 feet would be overkill in your case.

How’s the ice looking for this weekend? I heard people are fishing on Schroon and a few other smaller ponds in that area. Anyone been out on Lake Adirondack?

Has anyone been out ice fishing in the Adirondacks?

I have been out but not in the park. Got a nice limit of walleye on Oneida Lake last week. Went back with a friend and my son in law this week and caught a lot of walleye but they were all under the size limit and released. Great long ice fishing season shaping up!

How much ice on Oneida Lake ? The law made fishermen get off the ice on Delta last week.

This past Friday there was about 12 to 14 inches where I was near Lewis Point. With the warm up and rain it may melt some but getting cold again Tuesday night.

Lake George is not completely frozen but there is 8-12 inches in the southern half.

Not as of last Monday (1/15). The ice / water line was about even with the Pilot Knob Fire Co. That's my usual laker country!

Short report:
Fished raquette derby Saturday and did really well. Ice was 12-14 inches and easy walking everywhere although some sort of spikes or yaktraks were needed when the ice warmed. Saw several trucks on the ice. Action was hot from 830 to 1130 then slower but still consistent until 3. Got 3 lakers, 4 brook trout and many perch including some nice eating sized ones. So warm that I never put a jacket on until it started raining. Won 1st and 3rd place for brook trout so a good day all around.

Congratulations Creekwader on winning the brook trout division.
How big were your 2 winning brookies? I have wanted to ice fish for them there for a long time.
Did you take any pictures?

Not big, I have some pictures but nothing too impressive so I felt a bit sheepish putting them on here. If it get time I'll put some on my google page. The biggest brook trout was just under 16 inches, the rest in the 12-13 inch range. Lakers were 16-19 inches which is typical. Perch ran up to 12 inches. All fish caught in less than 5 ft of water, 1-2 ft under ice. 4 of us were out there but the 14 tip-ups I located and set for my dad and I were the only ones to get fish so I must have chosen the right spots.

Thanks for the update on the brookies CW. Sounds like a great day and to share it with your Dad all the more special. Great variety. I would not have guessed setting up that shallow would have produced as well as it did.

I went to Indian Lake on Monday (12/29) and fished from daybreak til noon. Caught a bunch of dink perch and only 2 decent sized ones. There was 18 inches of ice everywhere I drilled--southern basin. Perch were right on the bottom as usual and were caught on a small tungsten jig tipped with a couple spikes. Had the whole place to myself with the exception of one other party that had a wheeler and went quite a ways up the lake. I didn't put out any tip ups but just kept moving til I found some cooperative fish. Caught 10 in a period of about 15 minutes, then had to work for them after that.

Last night I went to West Lake (off Canada Lake) and again caught dink perch. Do you notice a pattern here?? There was about 2 feet of ice there and the wind was really blowing hard. If we didn't have a pop up shelter, I wouldn't even have fished but the shelter kept us warm. We thought the fish might turn on as darkness fell, but it was not to be. May be heading north for some bigger fish on Sunday.
