  1. No, I crossed the lake w/o  a problem in the morn,spudding all the way.  Met up with a couple friends that showed up later on the west side and hitched a car ride back to my car at Standpipe.  Worth it. Scored a nice parking spot on west side.:)

    friends are on Oneida now. Over a foot of good ice. They walked out from Sylvan beach. Nothing but pins so far

  2. Thats crazy, I did the drive around too. Did not want to be the only one out on Conesus and checked Silver. The ice at Silver looked like it was going fast so I did not stay that long. Lots of small perch  in Silver, but they seem to have grown up since last winter. They are averaging 8 1/2", last year 7" tops. Next year might be good.

     

  3. Nice perch. Never fished that lake.  

    Just got off Honeoye. The fish that were there the past few days disappeared.  The only logical explanation is they were the victims of an alien invasion and are now headed out of our galaxy.  Just when I thought I had this lake figured out.

  4. Ditto on the G flex. Costs about $35-40.  I tried fiberglassing, flex seal, and patches with epoxy that all failed.  I have not used the G flex on the sled yet but Three years ago, I sealed a very leaky 14' aluminum boat with it. Even filled a 5" crack below the waterline. Sealed all the rivets and seems. Stopped the leaks and did not peal off. Very impressive to hold through all the pounding on the trailer and water.

    You need a heat gun to apply it and don't get it on your hands. Wear the latex gloves that come with the kit.

  5. I am just waiting to see what happens.  The bass population last year was great.  The perch were a little harder to come buy but we started fishing for them well after the spawn. Gills and big sunfish were all over the place as well as rock bass.  And do I have to mention the ever present pickerel.  

    Just how the laker/ alewife population effects the other species is yet to be determined 

  6. I was wondering about this. I hardly ever use a heater when I fish alone and feel fine, but when I fish with one of my friends in the same hut, he has the heater on full bore and I wind up with a headache.  I'll spend more time outside the tent and see if it makes a difference.

  7. Keuka can be great or a dud.  The fixit4 you contest for perch this past spring had a 1st and 2nd place five fish weights of over 10 lbs. with a 2.51lb lunker. This past week, I could not get one over 6”.

  8. After doing solid perch fishing the past few years (like 40+), I have caught two perch over two lbs. One in Canandaigua four years ago that Gator ate, and one in I Bay this fall.  So, Here is a nickel for you Scotty.

  9. Sounds like you are new to the sport.  I might suggest a little research. Try looking at tip downs on the net and either make some or buy some. I rig minnows on them. As for jigs, it really depends on where you are. Maybe some tear drop style would be best for starters.  I would also head over to a local bait shop like Mitchels on Lake Ave in Charlotte for more local information.

  10. Very fortunate to sit over new land I have wanted to hunt for the past 15 years, a real holy hole. Belongs to an old frat brother of mine. First sit last week I counted 20 does and passed on a shot. Yesterday, sat for 5 minutes, saw my first doe another five minutes and two twin bucks show. Got a nice shot at a 7 point and down he went. Another couple minutes and four more does show up at 50 yds. 

    I think I owe my friend a good bottle of whiskey at the very least.

  11. Glad you got the deer Brian. Another proud member of the Colby road banishment club :)

    Yesterdays morning hunt was a big zero for me, but the evening hunt was pretty good. Had a nice 6 right under the stand for a long time before a wind gust brought my scent down to him. Fun to watch them bolt. Had another 8 out in the cut corn that did not respond to my calls and finally saw a nice little herd of does at dusk. It was a good night.
