Nice work Jackpot. I thought I saw the new John Deere on the ice down that way. We also picked off a few walleye during the Christmas week. Two 25ers were our biggest and a few around 20in. All back swimming. Only a few flags per evening. Its Quality not Quantity out there.

Keep your stick on the ice

Managed a few Walleyes between Friday afternoon and Saturday evening with 2 (20", 26.5") coming Friday early evening and 1 (21.5") coming early Saturday morning. Also managed 5 small Northerns. All fish caught coming on shiners below tip-ups between 10-15 FOW outside weed edge. Thought I'd get a few to pop Saturday late afternoon/early evening ahead of that storm system, but nothing popped. Kept the 20" 'Eye for some fantastic fish tacos Tounge Out.

8 inches in front of our place.  Froze last in the narrows, travel through there with caution.

 

Merry Christmas!

Fished here this past weekend... looking for walleyes. Plan was to fish the deepwater humps but the wind pretty much made that impossible. Tried a few places out of the wind and had limited success in 8 to 22 fow. Total of 4 smallies, one pike, perch, bluegills and rock bass. Mostly on jigs and crawlers or fatheads. Tried fishing the shallows after dark and around sunrise with stick baits and slow steady retrieve.... no luck.

I came up for one last weekend of Muskie fishing. It was an up and down weekend; the fish were very active, but the wind was terrible. I've never seen so many whitecaps on Two Sisters. I had to stop fishing for periods because I thought my small boat was going to get swamped! When I was fishing, I had good success. Landed one fat muskie and had several other followups. I stayed in the West Sister again and the fish were scattered all over the drop-offs. They seemed to be in the 10 - 15 feet transitional zones. Sad I will not make it back up there again this year.

Came up hunting Muskies for the weekend of September 9th - 11th. Came up to find no prop on the gas motor, so I spent the weekend moving around with a trolling motor on the west lake. I worked the drop-offs hard to no avail, but had a semblance of success on the weedlines. Ended up with a skinny, 25" pike and a fat largemouth, both on a depthraider and muskie tackle. I also saw a few more pike, one was the biggest pike I've seen on two sisters in 15 years. Lastly, got a sweet hit on a 40+ inch Muskie during a figure eight, but didn't get the hook set. It was a beautiful fish, and I'll be seeing it sorrowfully in my dreams for the next month.

The weather was too hot for my liking, but the lake was great; minimal boat pressure. I didn't have a temp gauge, but I'd estimate the water was still around 80*F.

Has anyone had Muskie success on this lake on the drop-offs? I seem to be able to score on the weedlines, but I'd like to take advantage of some of those dropoffs. I also do well from 2-4 PM, but can't find a fish to save my life in the morning or evening. Maybe the dropoffs will pick up as it gets colder? If anyone has any tips, I'd surely appreciate a PM.

Dave

My friends and I are trying to plan a trip for a weekend getaway to do some fishing. Ive heard alot of good things about lakes in oneida county as far as northerns and muskies so we decided to find a spot someplace within the county. Guys at work mentioned to me that two sisters lake is a good spot for a weekend getaway so i have a few questions.

First off is there any small cottages/cabin for rental in the area?? if not is there any chain motel/hotels like motel 6 or even mom and pop place?? For whatever reason im having a hard time finding this stuff out and all the planning is up to me. Were not trying to break the bank either but then again were not cheap skates lol

ANY help is very much appreciated. message me or post on here, thanks alot!

Good discussion on boating through the narrows, but I am wondering how the 180 feet distance was determined. I used two websites, WebSoilSurvey and Oneida GIS, and measured a distance of approximately 250 feet. I check their measuring tools on known distances (my lot lines). From what I read in the regulations PWC shouldn't be going through there except at slow no wake, because of the PWC no wake 200 feet from shore rule. However, it seems possible for a boat (even pulling a tube or a skier) to maintain the required 100 foot distance from shore at faster than slow no wake.

The problem comes when you meet some one or there is another boat in the area, how are you going to stay a safe distance away from that boat and 100 feet from shore? For that reason I don't pull skiers or tubers through the narrows. On the other had I don't see a problem going through the narrows, when traffic permits, at a slow speed, but one fast enough to keep the boat planed out.

I don't think we really want every boat going through the narrows to go in and out of a plane. Just drive cautious and slow enough to be able to be able to quickly adjust to traffic.

No doubt about the danger, and I agree with you 100%...I just remember as a kid blasting through the narrow on a water ski or inner-tube way back when...

You might try bringing the issue up at the association meetings, if they are still being held...it would get the word out a little more, at least.

Police coverage of the lake is minimal at best. I never saw a sherriff in a boat ever on the lake since started visiting in '77. Wardens? Once or twice, Sheriff? never....
