Print Email



Hi Guys,

I hope everyone is happy and healthy. After a rough couple months , Jane is back of the mend. Just a week or so ago she was in the ICU with internal bleeding due to interaction with heart and chemo medications?! But now she is much better!


Looks like another year of weird weather, huh.?! Just Like you , we've had extremely warm weather?! Not nearly as warm as yours, but, warm for "us". As of this writing we have over a foot of ice, but for this time of the year it should be more like two feet.?! The extended forecast is for much colder weather so hopefully we will have ice thru March, which for us is normal. Right now, a foot of ice is only going to last thru February? Here are some of the photos of our ice fishing from the past couple of weeks.



End of an Era

Very sad to say, but after almost 50 years, the WORLD FISHING and OUTDOOR EXPOSITION at the Rockland County community Collage, is NO MORE??!! It was one of the largest "PURE" hunting and fishing in the country, And was the standard on which all other sport shows were measured. At one time it produced over 75% of our clients!

We are still attending the Philadelphia Fishing Show on FEB 17TH thru the 19th at Oaks, PA, and will probably be the last show we will ever attend. I guess it is a "Sign of the Times",huh? Hope you guys can see us there?


After all these years we will soon be getting high speed internet. Our e-mail has changed from This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to "This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it." So please write down our new email now.


If any of you guys are thinking of coming up this "spring", please let me know "before" the shows, cause there aren't many open dates left?! Well guys, I guess that is it for now, hope to see you all at one of the shows ,or up here for some ice fishing!!


Bye for Now

The Long Pond Lodge

TLodge_Picture_small.jpghe Lodge provides a vast array of fishing packages and can accommodate up to 18 people who come to fish. We provide meals and lodging packages, guide service only packages and full service packages where we combine all our services. We have support from 14 local guides who work with us to provide the best in service and knowledge. Long Pond, which is located directly behind our Lodge, is an excellent Adirondack Park fishery. It contains quality large and smallmouth bass, northern pike and a good mixture of large panfish. Rowboats are provided, free of charge, on all Lodge fishing packages. The fishing packages we offer for the pond do not include the guide service.  This is a great way to reduce your overall expenses and still enjoy a great fishing opportunity.  We do provide a detailed map that reflects all the hotspots and weedbeds. We also provide various ice fishing packages during the long winter on Long Pond. Learn more about the guide service or our fishing packages.
