Dream Catcher Fishing Report – Jan. 20, 2010

Posted on Jan 18, 2010

The hard water fishing season is finally upon us and the action has been steady. We have heard of good numbers of pike and perch being caught in Braddocks.

Irondequoit Bay has seen a steady perch bite thus far for first ice. Best baits for the perch have been pink colored grubs.

Remember if you do go ice fishing this year that you have your license on you at all times and a valid receipt handy for any live bait that you purchase.  This receipt will be needed to present to the DEC certifying the bait is VHS free.

Lastly, stay safe out there.  Do not venture near open water or push the limits in this extreme weather sport.  Take the necessary precautions to ensure a safe and memorable day on the ice.  As obvious as the above advice may sound, every year there are incidents that occur that could have been avoided if only a little common sense and safety precautions were taken.
