Ice Fishing

Sandy Pond Ice fishing 1/9/13

I fished North Sandy Pond of of the Elms Golf Course with Mike Brassard on 1/9/13. The fishing was slow as we expected but we did manage to catch 3 pike and about a dozen keeper perch. We also released many small perch. 

We were fishing 12 feet of water. We were fishing with 7 tip ups, 3 tip downs and jigging in the shanty. Most of the perch came on the jigging rods. Two of the pike came on the tip ups and one on a tip down. 

As stated we expected the fishing to be slow as the perch were unable to enter the pond from Lake Ontario this year due to low water. 

Ice Fishing 2012-13

With cold weather finally upon us most people's minds are turning to ice fishing. I know I am getting the itch to get out on the hard water. If we get the temps that they are calling for I would say we should be on the ice by the weekend. 
Remember to use caution make sure there is at least 4 inches of ice before fishing. Always take someone with you and make sure you have rope and ice spikes in case one of you does go through. If you are unsure of the ice thickness bring a spud and use it on your way out.
