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!
I used to fish out of maxwell creek every spring for steelies and browns... love that place... Ihaven't been in 10 years or so... glad you got to wet a line... I'll be standing on hard water by next week end from the loks of the forecast..
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 would love t hook into a striper! I live inland though, so its northern pike, walleye, trout, salmon, smallmouth bass, and channel catfish for me. Best wishes to you and your fish, and of course, happy fishing!
Striped bass are my lifes passion... they have been since I was 8 years old..which means over 50 years..the path of my life and everything in it is linked to that fish in some manner...thus my screen name Roccus ... from the original latin name roccus saxatillis... changed quite a few years back to Marone saxatillis... not so noble IMHO for such a noble fish.
