ANY FISHABLE ICE?

3 posts in this topic

I'm heading up to the area this weekend and have some free time to try to fish. Are there any lakes in the area that have enough ice to fish on, or should I just leave the equipment behind? Thanks in advance.

I was in the Hackensack area last weekend and the 200 acre lake we are on was completely froze over. I know the bigger lakes were still wide open then, but I would think if you try a smaller lakes it would be worth checking some ice depths. I have seen people on North Long and tonight a couple of groups were venturing onto Round. Definitely been cold enough to make ice if its sealed up.

Thanks Rockyhook, I was thinking about a certain lake and didn't want to give out too much info as I heard it got hit pretty hard last year, but was wondering how the ice was on the lakes around the area. It is a pretty small lake, but deep, and a friend hit it up last winter and did good and figured if the lakes around it were good enough to walk on, this one would be OK. I figured with the temps lately that most of the lakes around the area would be walkable (with a spudbar) and at least worth bringing the gear up. Maybe I will se some of you out there, I've got a blue older 1man clam (now called the scout), if you see me, stop in and say hi.

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
