- Hello! Hope your winter is going well. I plan on going out for my yearly overnight icefishing trip tommorow. We fish North Sandy Pond which is a huge bay off the east end of Lake Ontario. Perch, walleye and northern pike are the target species but somone always ends up pulling a bass or bullhead or some other oddball through the ice. Hoping you get out on the ice this year!
- Hey roc, went fishing yesterday! The oswego seawall is on the south shore of lake ontario, big water, inland ocean. People hope for northern pike, steelhead or chinook samon this time of year...just before ice. So what did I catch? 3 tiny rock bass. Got to give them some credit for hitting lures almost a big as they are, but overall it was a just about a bust. Nice to feel a fish pulling on my line though, even if they were barley big enough to bend the rod!
- I live in a unique part of the country... I live 30 minutes from the ocean... and hour and a half from one of the largest lakes in the North east that harbors , large rainbows, salmon and lake trout... some of the local lakes were stocked with pike a decade ago.. they now boast self sustaining populations.. those provide winter sport through the ice...
