Merry Christmas to all in the Oneida Lake fishing community. Not much to report, a light skim of ice on some sections of the lake, open water on many others. No safe ice yet, we are looking forward to a couple colder nights with temperatures in the teens before a quick warm-up for Friday and Saturday. The extended forecast is showing a nice spell of uninterrupted freezing temperatures for the early part of 2019, hoping that will do it.
For those of you wondering, Bartel Road Bait & Tackle has moved across the street, they are in the plaza with the Subway across the street, head to the back of the parking lot. You’ll see the Live Bait sign in the window.
