ICE FISHING GETAWAY TRIPS
Ice Fishing is currently being arranged for the area lakes. Your hosts are working on having the shanty and tip ups available for the 2004 winter season.
For your added convenience your fishing license may be obtained next door to Back to Basics. We will have the forms available for you upon your arrival.
Your bait may be purchased less then three miles down the road at a backcountry shop called Buck's Bait which is very close to the Adirondack lakes. Buck will greet you with the laid back attitude, after all you be in the backcountry.
In addition, the use or possession of baitfish is prohibited in the following water:
Town of Bleecker - Holmes Lake, County Line Lake, Mud Lake
Town of Caroga - Fish Hatchery Pond, Indian Lake, Otter Lake, Stewart Lake
Town of Stratford - Coglin Lakes, Fourth Lake, Goose Egg Lake, House Pond, Knapps Long Lake, Long Pond, Third Lake
For the Kids: My First Fish Forms are available at the main house
"My First Fish Forms" are forms that children may fill out with the help of their parents during their first fishing excursion. When the form is sent to DEC the kids receive a small award for their first fish caught. A wonderful memory for a child to treasure year after year that some day will bring back the yesteryear's of their time well spent with that special someone (Back To Basics).
