As everyone is polishing their ice rods, sharpening hooks, priming the bait & checking their list twice (X 100) as a hard water season might be within reach, I thought Snow right off of 120 in Steuben Co. might be a good one to chat on. Mainly, because North Snow Bay is one of the earliest freezing bodies of water around to get on. To be honest, that's why I've gone there & have never fished it in open water season. Before sunrise have had success on crappie and later in the day decent gills & a few perch. Don't know anything about the fish pops. One year a guy told me he had caught walleye near the Bay's opening to the main lake. So I tried jigging before the last curve out & doggone if I didn't get a smallish 14 incher. Found guys using tipups for bass in the Bay numerous times but bass I saw caught were small & ice bass isn't my "bag." One b-i-g ? - Haven't gone the last few years because of the parking dilemma caused when the housing subdivision closed off street access. Anyone know if the pull off road between the southern fingers of NSB but short of 800 out to Hickory Island still allows parking? Come on, ice!!!
