There is a launch in Fifes Bay at the very north end of Tindle Bay Road.

Was out at the Islands yesterday. Again lots of people out there but no issues. Ice is still building and Iíd say we are around 9 inches of good solid ice. Lots of huts out now and four wheelers are very common.

Canít speak for everyone but so far the crappie are MIA. Havenít talked to anyone yet who has caught even one of them. Lots of perch and other bait fish around but the crappie are a mystery at this point. Iíll likely stop fishing there for a few weeks until someone starts hauling them in or finds where they went to.

Still highly recommend ice grippers or youíre gonna have a bad time. The snow we are getting today may change that a bit though.

The bait shop on Chemong at the Causeway is only open on weekends so stick up on minnows when you can if youíre fishing during the week. The next alternative would be the bait shop in Lindsay.

Out again today. The rain has done zilch to the ice thickness. Around 10 inches of good solid ice. The good part about the rain, sleet, and snow was that the surface of the ice is coated and you don't need any grippers to walk around.

Just fished the afternoon. Some dinks and an almost eatable sunfish. Had an Aquaview down the whole and wasn't seeing a whole lot other than some dink's chasing my bait around.

Just a word of caution the shorelines are crappy and flooded in some areas, wear rubber boots or waterproof footwear.

Was out yesterday. Solid 10Ē of good ice everywhere we went. Lots of sleds and atvís. Landed a few perch. One really nice one. Along with an accidental 34Ē Muskie. Great fight on 2lb test and a tickle stick. One quick pic and back in the water. She swam away fine after only about 10 seconds of revival.
Tight lines everyone.
