Is anyone interested in getting together for some ice fishing. I have no gear but would purchase a few tip ups. Someone hopefully has access to a gas Auger.
We could get together on a Sunday so we don't interupt any Hunting.
who is interested
I haven't planned that far yet.I always see a lake with Ice fisherman on Route 206 North about a mile before Simon Peter sport shop. I think its one of the lakes in Kittatinny SP.
I also think lake Aeroflex is nearby that lake.
I have to do some research.

Cranburry is public but most of the fish i have caught there were very small..lake hopatcong would be the place...i usually do pretty well in a few coves there...i normally just jig but if you have a group of guys nothing is more fun than setting up some tip ups...the tip ups usually produce some nice sized pickerel
I would vote Lake Hopatcong..I do alot of icefishing there and i think we could have a good day...I was actually at there today...drove there and walked out on the ice drilled some holes and realized i had forgotten my license...couldnt believe it...the guys who met me there caught some fish in the few minutes that i hung around just to talk a bit with them...might try to head out agin this week/weekend...
