  1. Glad your ok but now you scared the crap out of me for my first ever planned trip up there Friday. The more we icefish, the more we live on borrowed time. Eventually, something like this or worse seems to happen and sometimes it happens to the most experienced of us. I went through once in deep water and another time one of my legs found a hole and I went down to my hip. I still go a couple of times a week though. Just always have that healthy respect in the back of my mind.
  2. I was there yesterday. Not going today! Way to sketchy. One minute 4" and take a couple steps and the spud goes through in 1". Not only is there a contest, but the motor cycle guys showed up in the afternoon. All this on just a small fishable area. I hope I am wrong, but conditions the way they are is a recipe for a swim.
  3. I also have a large supply sitting around doing nothing. I will check it out and see what I can get you.
  4. Drove by yesterday at about noon. That ice looked a little wet. Almost looked like you guys were walking on water from the road. I did watch someone drill a hole and the ice looked ok where he was. Not going to last much longer so enjoy while it is there.
  5. Who has a boat ready!
  6. Any size to those perch?
  7. am actually in that picture. Should have called. I did see those guys just south of Trident along with a nice crack the north of them and open water just to the south of them. ????? The weather looks horrible for the next two weeks of the forecast, so Honeoye might be the only place around close to Roch. to fish. That will only make the crowds worse.
  8. Thanks Longspurs. So far, where I have been fishing, the best setting seems to be normal mode,AZ and a gain setting of 1. Tried messing with LP and high gain,but in 9-10 and no weeds, normal mode worked for me. We were out today. Not much to report. Got a few nice gills and a short eye early and after that it was a dink fest. Roamed out to 17' for dink perch and a pickerel. Went back shallow and got another pickerel. I had to leave early. I bet it got better in the afternoon.
  9. I forgot to mention that I played with my vex fl18 out there for the first time that I bought from a member here a couple weeks ago. In comparing it with my hummingbird ice 55, it excels in water under 12' I know the newer ones have an illuminated dial or a digital read out that tells you the depth. This one doesn' t and that is a minus. Over 12', I will use my hummingbird. Much bigger adjustable zoom and bright clear marks. Easy for an older guy like me to read.
  10. You probably was near me. I guess I should have called. Had a good day with 18 keeper gills and a couple of crappies. First time ever for me before Christmas. Life is good.
  11. Going to be a crowd. I am heading down in a few minutes. Doesn't anyone work anymore
  12. Eastmans is in Seabrook NH
  13. I have gone out with eastmans many times on private group charters. Can't say enough good things about them. I like late April, May fishing the best for Haddock - Cod. Early fall is great for pollock Have not tried the summer months with them.
  14. I also have done a lot of salt water fishing being from "The Island". I have fished the Jersey shore a lot but I believe the Cape Cod - Buzzards Bay and Boston Harbor are better. I plan on making a late May trip for sea bass/stripers this year. Let me know if you would consider going to Mass. instead of Jersey.
  15. Man, that's a beauty. Glad you found him Congrats.
