Stony (Stoney?) Lake near Hackensack

Recommended Posts

Eye Slayer

Has anyone ice fished this lake? I have seen people reference fishing it in the summer but no comments on the winter bite.

I am looking for a new place to try (besides Birch and Ten Mile) for walleye, perch, or pike. I am looking for a smaller lake (~1,000 acres or less) to minimize risk of poor ice conditions (like on Woman).

Just looking to change the scenery a bit...

I've heard good things about the narrows. Crappies and walleyes moving into that area around sunset. Hearsay, haven't tried it myself.

I have a place on Stony since 68. Stony is a clear lake, so that makes for a hard walleye bite. If you get any, you are going to have to work for them. Sunfish and northerns are on the small side. I haven't caught any crappies in some time. The DNR report pretty much says it all. I more or less, gave up. One person will put their house in the narrows, and it will automaticaly draw attention. It is a beautiful lake, but like so many lakes, it has felt the pressure. But give it a try. Maybe the sunken island in the northern part of the main lake. Nobody seems to hit that much.

Eye Slayer, I fish Stony quite a bit in the summer, but not very often in the winter. I have a place on Pleasant and usually fish between the 2. The walleyes can be very illusive, but once you find them, they aren't that difficult to catch. I would start out from the narrows and move shallower towards the narrows during lowlight periods. If nothing, I would fish around the sunken island. I've had the most luck on the southeast edge of the island. Fish anywhere from 15-35 feet, stay mobile and you shouldn't have a problem getting on some nice eyes. Email me if you have any more questions. Rhino0018 at yahoo

Lake Dr., I will shoot you an email later today. Thanks so much for all of this information. I have never really had much luck off of my home waters (Birch) so I am really looking forward to doing some exploring!

Thanks again!

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
