SYLVAN BEACH N.Y.- Winter in Central New York means Ice Fishing in Sylvan Beach.
Several people were seen out on Oneida Lake Sunday afternoon at Sunset Park.
The Sylvan Verona Beach Resort Association says this weekend hundreds of fisherman have been out on the ice enjoying winter fishing.
Those NEWSChannel 2 spoke with say despite the weather this season, they had a great time out on the lake.
"It's been good, I mean just a little getaway from the workweek, hanging out with your friends, going out on the ice, kind of enjoying yourself, you know just doing your own thing." said Kenneth Eruckman of Utica.
"A good day, great day out on the ice can't complain." said Josh Vandresar of Vienna. "Any day out on the ice is a good day. But hopefully we will get some better temperatures." Vandresar added.
This week snow is expected to move back into the area, which should provide better conditions for fisherman.
