how long can you actually stay out?

i was out by the yacht club today and eventually it got late and kept telling myself 5 more minutes and then it was dark, i had a lantern so i was good, started getting together and when im about to start towing the sled away i hear "PLEASE GET OFF THE ICE, NO FISHING AFTER DARK" from a megaphone ( i think) and i saw a spotlight where it was coming from, the third parking lot, and i just started wondering, are there hours for ice fishing on the bay?

    Depends where you access the bay from. From the city side it's 24/7 but from the park side its dawn to dusk.

    fish off the city side and u can fish all night. If u go off p.i. and park there the "rangers" will make u get off the ice. This is why i almost never fish off of p.i.
    i have been fishing off the EYC and have had the same thing happen to me. i find it funny when i am fishing after dark and i hear them telling me to get off the ice.
    how was the fishing off the EYC today? thinking about fishing there mid-week..........

    I think Ferncliff may allow parking after dark. but I'm not certain.  Most places other than Chestnut close at dark even on the city side.w_w.

    If it has fins and gills, I'm there.

    how has it been viewing with a camera? I noticed as of late, there are times I can barely see my 1st line that is 1 foot on front of my camera and forget about seeing my 2nd line 2 foot from my camera. Although fishing off Somerheim Sunday, I was able to see my 2nd line majority of the time being I was shallow in 5 foot of water. Is the clarity getting better else where or deeper water??

    slowtroller, maybe if you use words like secret spot, attention and newbies then no one will go there. thanks for your contribution though, really.

    Oddly enough, neither of you did what you chastised others for not doing.

    Get Informed, Get Involved, And Make A Difference.

    Step Up, or Step Aside


    The next time you say "Somebody should do something", remember that YOU are somebody.

    jesus christ gentlemen i simply asked the angler in question to have a private inquiry with a MODERATOR rather than post the location of a very small and privately maintained access area. I did this not out of spite to keep anglers from enjoying a sport we all obviously love but out of respect for those individuals who have kindly allowed access there for years. in regard to the chastising comment i was not chastising for giving up a location but rather for posting a reply when the poster didnt really have anything to add to the converataion. sound familiar? Think about it I suggest an appropriate alternative to what otherwise could be a negative situation for everyone only two have joe blow throw his two cents in and overreact. I attempt to make him understand that he is only going to make the situation worse(sarcastically mind you) and now I have two more brilliant minds coming down on me.  If I didnt know better Id think I was in Erie

    If you would have PM'd both these guys, there wouldn't have been a problem. I understand protecting a private access area but the way you did it here wont be taken very well by the guys on this site. JMO

    people should do their own research about the bay to avoid all this nonsense.   instead of getting instant gratification, spend a couple minutes reading this.  all the access points are right there in print.
