Hi Everyone, Ice Fishing shout out!! Ice Fishing Hotline… As we warm into the weekend most places have ice and will slush. Sandy Pond has Ice and is fishable. Best ice is on the South shore of North pond. ” Wig Wam” end… As we warm stay away from moving water!! Elms, Green point, and the rest of the North East end is thinner so will soften before the south end. Looks like will get a couple more days out of the pond but use caution as the weekend progresses. 8 days of warm weather ahead will push ice fishermen further north as the week goes on. Shore lines will take a pounding so I would recommend walking!! The Sportsmen’s Club fishing Derby is going as scheduled and are taking sign ins at Sandy Pond!! Salmon river is running @ 1100 cfs… with run off… river will come up and push fish to the banks. River is fishable but will change as the week warms. We will keep you posted as water levels increase. Everyone have a great weekend gonna be nice out and our door will be open!! Happy Fishing srss j button

Ice Fishing!! Nice to fish with my family today on green point Sandy Pond. My grand daughter Kloey May and friend Dominic first time on the ice. They loved it!!! A lot of action there for kids and they caught fish! My daughter Alexa and boyfriend Chris caught fish too. As for me I was just happy to see them excited!! Pike were passing by the holes but no takers. I spent more time telling stories and eating sandwiches but I got a few. We have to remind our selves fishing is just for fun and we had a lot of fun today. Everyone have a good work week!! srss j button

SHOUT OUT!!!!! Tell a friend make a customer!! Salmon River Sports Shop has plenty of bait…Make a new customer and win a free tackle box!! I’ve bin working hard on keeping the tanks clean and the bait fresh. Flipping minnows and grubs every three days. We just got in a fresh tank of bait, not graded. We will start grading down sizes as business picks up. Many of our regulars have bin heading up north, getting fish!! Charmount bay, Lake of the Isles, Sixtown pond, Perch lake, Big Bay, Cranberry Lake, Goose bay, Blake Lake, Tupper Lake and Eel bay all have good Ice. Jessie Rogers one of our regulars caught this nice pike on Charmount!! Jessie caught it on one of our jumbo shiners. Great job Jess!! She is a Winter Classic contestant and is now placing in the leader board, lunker pool, weekly and female category. Nice job!!… Fish buying is picking up too. Bigger pale, better fish, better money. We are buying Rock bass, Yellow Perch, White Perch and Sunfish blue gill. We are now wicked Perch!! There is no set prices. Bring them in and we will give you a fair price depending on size mixed, quality and quantity. Max price is 2$ a pound. NO DINKS!!! I’ve worked this in with my regulars and has gone over very well. We had one customer that just didn’t get it and wanted me to measure each one. I tried to explain how much in cost time, labor and utility’s… just didn’t get it.. many times I give deals and hook up fish sellers with plenty of bait including this customer. He ended up taking his fish some ware else!! Just a reminder we are always here for you and willing to help!! Half way threw the season and we aren’t done yet, all the way to May and June. Spring is just around the corner and we will be buying fish!! We will be closed at 6pm today only!! Enjoy the super bowl.. Happy fishing srss j button

Real nice big ones caught in town from behind the shop down. With water coming down and cold gonna build self ice. Do not step out on it!! Many comments that theirs no fish in the river. Every day theirs new fish!! Fishermen with experience and drift boats have bin getting fish. Even tho numbers seem lighter then past seasons, there is a lot of fish in the river!! We are looking forward to a good spring…..Ice fishing!! After the tragedy on Sandy pond it’s bin hard to write reports. We do our best to remind, inform and report safety. Always carry a spud, drill your way out and if your not from that body of water stop talk to locals get details. Know matter what time of year or what water we are on their is always risk. Best Ice is up north!! We are stocked with bait and put in more tackle. Call the hotline number and we will help you.. srss j button
