Was out last sunday and Monday a ways south of the causeway, the ice was 16-18 inches thick. Going out tomorrow probably need cleats. The bite has been okay getting some crappie, perch and bluegill.

I was up last weekend, fished the north end. The ice was a solid 24" and lots of trucks crossing the lake. That is the busiest I have seen it in sometime.

I was out last night south of the causeway. Bite was slower than the time before but still took 3 decent sized crappies out and one jumbo perch. Got cleaned off probably 10 times though lol.

Ice is great, watch out for the ice below the thin sheet of snow it's very slippery. Cleats are a must in my opinion.

Was fishing around bow island

Can anyone give me an update on whether or not i'll be able to drive out onto Chemong tomorrow night? Did the snow pile up deep or did it mostly blow away?

I havenít been out but I would say itís probably about 8Ē judging by the small lake by my house. Iíll be going out on foot tomorrow and Saturday morning. The snow we got was heavy so I donít think it blew out to the shore after it fell. Hopefully Iím wrong for your sake. Stay safe out there.

Went out tonight, no issues driving a truck out.

Decent crappie bite. Not many people out though which was odd.

I donít post on here too often, I was on Chemong today fishing wasnít too bad thereís a good 16Ē of ice. Now that being said since I was a kid Iíve been firm believer in the fishermanís code of respect never being to close and being mindful of others Iím just wondering if Iím a dying breed? Especially after today being on Chemong

Nope. I agree about giving space. At least 2x the depth your fishing is what I go by. I canít stand it when someone drills a hole 10í away from me when Iím fishing 12í of water. Some donít feel the same or have the common courtesy.

I haven't had any issues out there yet. If you drill within the shanty village by the island you can probably expect to be crowded out.

The issue I have out there is the arseholes on sleds and fourwheelers constantly buzzing by for hours at a time having nothing to do with fishing at all.

There's an entire lake out there, why do you have to ride your crappy sled right where we are all fishing?

Iím in complete agreement on the sleds Iíve seen them flying around with kids and people on the ice getting way to close, i donít usually go in the busy areas try to stay away I was probably 70-80 yards away some guy just comes about 10í from me starts his auger and sets up! Honestly I was shocked

My dad made a comment last time that he was surprised that the locals haven't told them to pound salt elsewhere.
