Hoping it may thaw by tomorrow afternoon.

Me too.  Anybody with ideas on how to break up the ice I'm willing to help...

The ramp looked ok today, a lot of ice melted.  I just did some shore casting, but checked it out and saw a guy launch no problem.  I'm planning to launch tomorrow, gonna be 52 degrees.

Aren't you guy afraid to freeze your lower unit?  Do you store the boat and motor in a garage?

I worry about frozen lines etc.

Mine is stored in the garage.  If a warm day pops up, I like to try to get out there.   I always check all my lines and make sure any water is drained after use.

Yes outboards drain completely, as long as you lower it when you get in the parking lot, then raise it up for travel. I never had a problem in thirty years of fishing in the winter….

I chopped it out myself on Sunday 2/3. Only took me 30 minutes. Been out 4 times since. Fishing good if you don’t mind catching lake trout or ‘lake carp’ as i call them. The browns mixed in have been good ones tho. No complaints on the number of fish we are catching. IMG_2097.JPGIMG_2082.JPGIMG_2073.JPG

Anyone know if the Taughannock North Point shore is clear enough for some shore fishing?  Is it usually pretty clear there, with the creek flowing in?

  Hey Doc.....nice going. Beautiful browns. No need to tell me any secrets, but I assume you use standard stickbaits that go down 3to 10 ft.   Correct?
