  1. My mistake, I never heard of Cross Lake. When I received the post, I thought this person was interested in the areas I posted about. So I guess I deserve a mulligan here. Sorry.
  2. what area are you looking for? I mainly talk about lake shore ponds in Greece NY west of Rochester. Baraddocks bay has nice parking but get there early or during the week. Cranberry pond has a limited parking lot only. No street parking and lond pond has parking along edgemere drive. I hope this helps you out.
  3. Lot's of snow just makes it more difficult to fish all around. Good advice from all.....just be careful. Don't want to see anyone on the news cast with the fireman having to pull anyone out. Use good judgement. A few fish aren't worth your life. Be carefull.......
  4. The Heavier the snow, the more weight is on the ice. I think we will be ok with this storm cuz the 30'35mph winds may blow a lot of it off. The ice has had a chance to firm up nice too. I would still be careful and drill a test hole or to as you embark onto the ice. The snow is supposed to be a drier snow.....below freezing temps.....more fluffy. Still,just be careful. .....Anyone know if Stewies near Cranberry pond is still open. It looked all closed up the other day....midday.
  5. Thanks for the info. I drove by the ponds yesterday. Saw 2 tents on long pond, about 10 on cranberry and lots of folks at braddocks bay.Was only 1 parking spot left too. Very popular spot. Too cold and windy for me though.No shelter here.
  6. Great to hear from you!. Let me ask....how thick was the ice at Braddocks? Sounds like you had fun....lots of action. What was your bait of choice for the Perch? Jigging? Thats what I usually do using mouses. I may get out over there soon. Have to watch weather.....No shelter here. Thanks, Bob.
  7. Hello All. I have been away for a while, health reasons and recently moving to new area. Closer to lake and ponds now. So..... I took a little drive past all both ponds and Braddocks this afternoon. Still a little open water on both ponds, no one out and saw 1 tent on Braddocks bay in about 3 feet of water away from shore. Going to get super cold for a few days so I would think the ice would be firming up. I'll check when I can. Has anyone heard if it is worth trying for perch this year. The lake waters are higher so I hope the fish can get in now. The barriers at Cranberry parking lot have been removed.....Easier to get out there now. Thanks, I'll be around .......Bob
  8. Nice Trout fishing day. Anyone heard anything about small mouth bass in the lake yet.....Thank you
  9. Wow! Nothing happening anywhere? Nothing biting or just not worth going right now? I guess the lake shore ponds are no good but I did hear some little ones were caught at Irondequit Bay. (sorry spelling)
  10. Thanks for the update Iceman. By the way, is the parking area at Braddocks opened up now and how about Irondiquoit? Is there any parking around the construction area or do we park on the road on the east side of the outlet. I was thinking about Irondiquoit too. Might be better. Small fish but least there are a few. I bet the ice is good and thick now everywhere.
  11. Haven't seen any posting for the lakeshore ponds in Rochester. Folks gave up? Must be lot's of ice....maybe I'll take a peek Friday afternoon....(drive by)
  12. Thanks for the update. We all appreciate the info...............
  13. Nice Bluegills (Sunny's). Which pond did you catch them ?
  14. Ok Friends,....... as promised....I took a little ride to the ponds today. Saw 1 person on Braddocks close to the Penninsula near the lake. Then over to Cranberry to see the Red shelter about 30 ft from shore, no one else. And then to Long pond....No one there. It also looked a bit waterlogged stained in many spots. I would not venture out onto what I saw. And by the way....Does anyone know what is going on at the fishing access parking area at Braddocks bay near the Marina. Looks like a highway construction zone. Lots of cones and barrels blocking off everything at the parking area. Maybe some very cold nights will firm things up.
  15. I think we are finally making ice this week. Been cold and real cold at night with not too much snow. I was going to take a drive tomorrow (Tues) and check Cranberry, Braddocks and Long pond. Hopeful to be fishing by the end of the week.....looking for 5 or more inches to be safe.
  16. Thanks all for the update. I'm sure everyone appreciates it. Thanks again.
  17. Cold weather on the way. But be careful. Give it time to build up a bit. There's plenty of fish.
  18. Starting to look like using a canoe or rowboat may be the only way for perch fishing so far this year.LOL. I still remain hopeful thought
  19. All info is a good thing .....how much ice do you you have up there? Did you go out and what did you catch? Thanks Kevin....keep posting .
  20. Sounds like it's still too early, but cheer up......colder weather is on the way for next weekend and after......let's hope but be safe. Antone know if Stew's grocery near cranberry pond has mouses spikes and minnows?. I need to call them.
  21. Maybe a couple weeks. I'm ready.
  22. I Applaud your comments........Agree, Agree, Agree..........The fish WILL still be there. Oh, And what about the folks that hop scotch plywood. That's really rich!
  23. I agree...could not have been safe. 4 inch min. Some just can't wait. I hope the best for them that they don't fall through.
  24. i ca not find where to log out here. Anyone help me out please?.
