  10. Thank you Less. I understand that point. I always have wondered if we should have our names on out shanties just so the DEC can see it. Kind of like a back tag. Duck Killer
  11. That last post came from the DEC app. Interesting about the marking your name and such on the shanty. I wonder if that pertains to portable ice shelters to? Duck Killer
  12. Permitted Ice Fishing Ice fishing is permitted in the following waters: All non-trout waters unless otherwise prohibited. Certain trout waters listed in the app including Lake Champlain, Lake Erie, Niagara River, Lake Ontario, St. Lawrence River, Finger Lakes, Border Waters, most New York City reservoirs, and all other waters designated as ICE FISHING PERMITTED in SPECIAL REGULATIONS BY COUNTY. Read through the regulations pertaining to the water you intend to fish. Where ice fishing is permit- ted, fish may be taken in accordance with the seasons, minimum size and creel limits in effect in that water. Wherever ice fishing is permitted, no more than 3 hand lines and 5 tip-ups may be used, except as noted in BORDER WATERS, LAKE CHAMPLAIN or SPECIAL REGULATIONS BY COUNTY. All tip-ups must be marked with the name and address of the operator. The operator must be present when lines (tip-ups or hand lines) are in the water. Tip-ups may only be operated on waters of the state between November 15 and April 30. Remember: Trout waters where ice fishing is permitted are specifically designated in this guide; ice fishing is prohibited in all other trout waters. If you are unsure whether a water is considered trout or non-trout, contact the DEC Regional Office for that area. No person shall operate a tip-up that has more than 5 lures or baits or a combination of both, or has more than 15 hook points in any combination of single, double or treble hooks. Ice shanties Ice shanties must be marked on the outside with the owner’s name and address in letters at least 3 inches high. Shanties must be removed from all waters by March 15 to prevent them from falling through the ice in spring and becoming hazards to navigation. Duck Killer
  13. I remember when I was a kid we could fish with 5 tip ups 5 tip downs and 2 jigging pols. Oh how times have changed. Duck Killer
  14. Lol I like taking the kids there. Always good action for predators. Later on in the season you can pick up some perch. Duck Killer
