    Just came in from the lake (MOGADORE) where I detoured to,on my way to Cuy.Falls, to pick up my shanty(that is stored) at my son-in-law and daughters. Started at Palm Rd. access area.....saw one lone fisherman on the ice......NO FISHING FOR ME TODAY by the way.....time to tie up loose ends..Walked out to check on his observations.....Via a short conversation, he told me 4" and that was in very hard ice....He had just got there shortly before me and hadn't caught anything......but missed a bite while we talked. I left there and moved to CLR, where two vehicles were in the parking lot. I noticed a shanty with a couple of people moving around a few hundred yards to the east of where I was. Another vehicle pulled in and a guy started looking around.......I asked him a question, and that started a conversation. He also was checking things out.....and guess what, he is also a member of OGF (and had seen the thread from yesterday and came out to see what was going on...He is member PIKEDADDY, from Cuy.Falls......Hey man,good to meet ya and enjoyed the conversation very much...Maybe get hooked up for Punderson, like we talked about......The guys on the ice were too far to just walk out and see if they were doing any good or not...So up and headed out to finish my missions.......Oh yeh, stopped at bassmastermjb (MARKS) place to pickup a bulk box of waxie's (250) cause it looks like next week it's going to be "ON"....and Mark and I also have a couple other spots to try for the first of the week........"CAUTION GUY'S.......

  2. those 2 vehicles were my cousins and mine. I started off of palm by myself caught a few but slow fun to watch them bite though. then my cousin met up with me and we venture out off CLR. got out by the island no problem had 2 3/4 - 3 1/2 all the way out close to shore! caught a few gills out there and my cousin caught a decent perch! forecast for wed or thurs. didn't look good! 42 and rain.... but thats a long way away! good luck if you get out!

  6. Not by me... Maybe Sunday I'll take a drive and check.

    I hope to be ice-fishing Monday... SOMEWHERE!
  7. Saturday's (12/06) snow flurries and accumulation of a couple of inches in the Akron area did not help our cause much. :mad: :mad: :mad:

    I went by the OSP on Friday and it was 75% open water. I would use EXTREME CAUTION anywhere.

    jiggin'fool.........thanks alot for your post .........and your report.......If you fish here often. maybe our paths will cross.....At least you did get out (safely) and got your new season started......Jon Sr.
  10. I'm glad we have such good folks here who go check things out for the rest of us. Notice they all say the same thing with this first ice... USE CAUTION!!!

    We're off to a great start weather wise, and if things stay they way they're forecasted and we don't get a lot of rain, there MAY be fishable ice next weekend. Saturday at Mogadore (Congress Lake Rd) will be my destination.

    If anyone wants to show up, I'll be there unless the ice isn't ready.

    IBJOHN......Hey Guy......always look forward to reports from all the ground you now cover.....and your observations.....Tomorrow....respective of the weather(snow fall) I'm thinking I'll hit CLR for a period of time.....I have your cell no., If things stand as they are now......I'll get in touch with you....Jon SR.
  12. mrphish42: I'll either be at OSP or Mogadore on Monday... Will have to see what I hear or see today of OSP. A previous post said it was open water on Friday...and that doesnt bode well for Monday ice fishing... CLR or Palm Rd may be the ticket.

    Pikedaddy just catch 'em'

    It was nice to meet you to John.

    I am still thinking about going out to Palm today. If I do go out there I will probably be over by where that older gentlman was fishing but this snow has me debating with myself weather to bother or not.

    Just let me know when you think Punderson is fishable. I am off of work Friday to Sunday every week so just let me know.

    good fishin,
