  1. new sled for shanty

    You could also rivet some flashing over them. A little caulk can seal them up if they leak. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United
  2. new sled for shanty

    I might have some old straight downhill skis (not worth anything in the skiing world). You could probably screw them to the bottom of the sled.

    I think my 4 year old would love ice fishing, but I don’t have the confidence in my own abilities to make it fun for him. And e doesn’t sit still very well. Yet. I’m in fairport. My only experience is down on Silver Lake and Honeoye Lake. I’m wondering how the fishing may be on the ponds near the high acres landfill on 31f. Any experience with those?

    Sackett's is definitely up there, and probably not in the cards this year with my limited free weekends. I definitely appreciate the offer, and will keep it in mind moving forward. I do have this grand plan of getting up to Clayon to fish the river someday. Sadly our trailer gets closed up in September/October, and no power or water, but at least the Harbor Hotel is warm and dry. That's my plan for "someday", though.

    I appreciate that. I'll definitely be in touch. It's a whole different world when you're "driving the boat" rather than just along for the ride, and I'm quickly learning how little I actually know. I have some work to do the next few weekends, but hopefully I'll be able to get some time soon.
  7. Boughton Park, Ontario County

    I have access to Boughton Park this winter and was wondering if anyone's ever fished there, or had any suggestions on where/how to fish it (Fairport Resevoirs)?

    Thanks. Come to find out, I have an account over there and I completely forgot about it.

    That's insane!
  10. Ice Status

    Does anyone have a good resource on finding the ice status of local fisheries (specifically the Rochester area at this point)?

    Hey folks. I've been watching this forum off and on for a couple months and decided it was time to join up. I currently live on the East side of Rochester and also have a summer place outside of Clayon in the 1000 Islands. I don't get out fishing nearly as much as I'd like, but that's life with 2 young kids. Not enough hours in the day. Anyway, I've been really chomping at the bit to get some ice fishing in since the last few years have been complete shutouts when it comes to actually having fishable ice that I trust. After hard water fishing with my brother in law and his dad for a couple years, I finally got my own gear (HUGE score at a yard sale), and that's when things started to warm up. Due to familial changes, I no longer fish with my brother in law, so I'm left trying to figure out how/where to ice fish around Rochester, on top of where to get bait fish and the like. Hopefully I'll be able to learn some things and get out on the ice at least once before the season ends this year.
