ACGS - Quality Fishing, with Quality People

The Long Pond Lodge Update - January 2013Happy New Year Everyone!!!

“WE HAVE ICE”!!!!  It tool a longer time this year but we finally go it!!  The first day out was Dec. 24th and all these photos are from this past Christmas week, and the big one was a 36” Pike taken by “DAN SWEENEY”.




Paul Hume and the guys spent most of their time jigging and doing really well with Bass, Pike and some really nice Sunfish and Yellow Perch.  Andy Jensen and his guys spent most of their time fishing for smallies and they caught some nice ones.  This year we’ve already catching very nice BIG Yellow Perch.  Because of the recent snow on the top of the ice, the surface was really slushy and the walking was tough so almost everyone fished less then 100 yards from the lodge.  All together the guys must have caught and released well over a hundred fish, maybe “TWO”?  Anyway, ICE FISHERMAN, the season has started so come on up!!! 



We are attending three sport shows this winter: 

Feb. 14-17===Greater Philadelphia Outdoor Sportshow---Oaks, Pa. 

Feb. 28-Mar. 3===The World Fishing & Outdoor Expo—Suffern, NY 

Mar.8-10===The New England Fishing Show--- Providence, R.I. 

This year will be our 35th year in business and also our 35th year at the “SUFFERN SHOW!! 

2013 RATES

Our rates for this year have been posted on our rates page.  We are listing everything that is in our brochure so “EVERY" package will be there.  We also made it easier to combine packages to fit your needs.  For the 3 past years we kept our rates the same, but like everything else, we had to raise it for this year. We will also be adding the gas surcharge to our guided packages instead of tacking it on at the end of your bill.  I guess we were kidding ourselves that the gas prices will eventually go down. 


Our new website will be completed this month. Andy, our webmaster, says it should be a lot easier to navigate and more user friendly. Look for another email once its complete.


I would like to take this time to thank everyone who came fishing with us this past year.  Some of you have been with us for many many years, and Jane and I consider you more like family than clients.  All of you have made a great life for me and my family, thank-you.   

Have a great NEW YEAR! 

Hope to see you all soon.

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.
