Jeff over at Lakeside Outfitters (Route 31 and Lewis Point Road) sent some cool photos in of the ice breaking up, the first three are from Lewis Point and the last two are from Sylvan Beach. These are some great shots of the power of nature. Here’s to hoping that we all avoid damage from the ice as Oneida Lake thaws and we transition to open water fishing. Lakeside is getting ready for open water and has been steadily increasing its inventory for the walleye opener. Trout people can stop in for salted minnows and other gear, they are still open seven days a week and you can register for the Lions Club Walleye Derby taking place opening weekend. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter for pictures and important announcements.
