RE: Tupper Lake - Labor Day Weekend
If you want to limit the amount of water you cover try Simon Pond at the Northern end of Tupper Lake. Some nice northerns are caught there during the ice fishing contest in the winter. Lots of space to cover on Tupper and a variety of space to find where the northerns are located. Simon Pond would give you more action with less space to cover.
Check at the Bait Shop on your right just before you get to Tupper Lake on Route 30 about 1/2 mile before you get to the bridge that crosses where Simon Pond Road goes off to the right.
Good Luck and let us know how you do.
