Getting Ready for Ice Fishing

Spread the love

Oneida Lake locked up last night, I did notice a ton of cracks as I traveled around the lake this morning.  There was a lot of slush in the water yesterday with the snow so it will be interesting to see how things set up for ice fishing.  The view from Sylvan Beach was a little deceiving if you were looking from the webcam and it was just a slush snow mix that blew in with the wind yesterday.  As I scan the cracks, a lot of them have dark water and others have frozen back up again.  The old lady is definitely making ice.  The immediate forecast looks very favorable with the next four nights very cold, mild winds and as of now, no snow.  For now, along the north shore at least, the ice is forming fairly smoothly so we have that going for us, which is nice…

Even better news in the 15-day forecast, every day has sub-freezing temperatures and it looks like just a couple of days will have temperatures a bit above freezing during a portion of the day.  The bottom line is we are finally in a decent position to get the season started, but Oneida Lake is going to need a couple more days to be ready.

Please remember to stay safe, the spud is your friend…
