  1. 100 views is not much and I’d guess that of those hundred, not many more than the 1 who replied has ever fished it. It’s been on my radar ever since I read an article boasting the amazing fishing both there and on the Seneca River. But I’ve never seen a solid report out of there...ever. JohnnyWalleye pounded the crap out of it a bunch of times with little to show for it if I recall. I don’t think it’s anyone’s honey hole so much as there are so may better options within reasonable proximity with Oneida being the best.
  2. South end. Before dark. Hole hopped until I found a spot with a good gill bite. Set up the lantern and it was a steady pick of gills on the bottom and the crappie would hit at 5 foot as I brought the jig up through the water column. Really consistent pattern.
  3. I did the lantern bite tonight on Honeoye as well. Same results as Longspurs.
  4. Guys are fishing Honeoye and Conesus
  5. Father and daughter. What god-awful news. https://www.nny360.com/news/stlawrencecounty/it-s-a-recovery-effort-at-this-point-search-efforts-resume-on-black-lake-for/article_096f5f62-59a2-11eb-8884-23681c2859cd.html
  6. Makes sense. I’m 3 years away from retirement and I’ll be running a similar program. If there were ice at home I’d probably be on Honeoye. As it is, I’m in a hotel room watching the Bills game, trying to figure out what tomorrow might look like. Done enough smallish perch for one weekend.
  7. We were on Hyde today but we got there wicked early so parking wasn’t an issue. All the smallish perch we wanted. Kept a couple dozen of the biggest ones. Grubs and all. It’s a small lot so there there was plenty of room to fish. No one was pressuring anybody. Were you out on Hyde today, Kevin?
  8. Thanks. I’m driving after work tomorrow (Fri.) to check some spots for Saturday morning. Hyde, Butterfield, Payne. If that’s no good I may have to join the masses on LOTI.
  9. Hey Kevin...do you reckon they were pike fishing that close to shore? Not much of a chance of getting perch or eyes in that close, would you think? I’ve never been to Chaumont but it’s on my list for this weekend. Unfortunately, I think Indian River Lakes just went from Plan B to Plan A and Eel or LOTI being plan C (although I prefer to avoid combat fishing....I’m reading that the crowds are a little big and include a fair share of litter bugs).
  10. Someone on the on the other site reported someone out on Long Pond today and gave a 2nd hand report of 3 1/2” near shoe. I’m in disbelief. I live by Durand-Eastman and the ponds (even the sheltered, shaded coves) aren’t ready yet. How can wide open ponds with a Lake Ontario wind have fishable ice?
  11. We almost lost a brother on Loon today. I've got the itch as much as everyone else. I'll honor his near death experience with a pause, and a rethinking of how urgently (or not) I need to get out there. https://13wham.com/news/local/troopers-rescue-ice-fishermen-who-fell-through-steuben-county-lake
  12. Thanks Kevin. I’ll be heading north after Christmas. Not sure if it’s going to be the Larry, Indian Lakes, Black, or the Dax but there won’t be anything happening locally for a while and the itch is getting pretty bad.
  13. Honeoye south end 1st, state boat launch Conesus north end 2nd, Vitale Park. canadice and Hemlock are deep. They take significantly longer. Good luck, stay safe, and have fun.
  14. I’m dumbfounded. I had less than 2 inches on a much smaller body of water. I wouldn’t even have considered those spots as being safe. I wouldn’t go to either of those spots anyways...but still.
  15. ...this morning on small water. Wasn’t QUITE there yet. I’m a fairly light guy and I travel really light so I thought I might be able to pull it off but no such luck. One more night like last night was all we needed. But now the warm up. Bummer. Just glad I checked before I bought minnows. We won’t be out locally before their expiration date on the receipt now. If I didn’t have to serve at church tomorrow I’d be headed to Tupper right now. No BOQ this winter either. Now that’s a TOTAL pissah!!
