ACGS - Quality Fishing, with Quality People



Hi Guys:

I hope you all had a nice holiday. We had a great one with the family. This past month we had plenty of ice but “No Ice Fishermen”. Usually the guys are “chomping at the bit” and can’t wait to get here. But maybe holiday plans got in the way, or they really didn’t realize we had safe ice, considering the warm weather you had down south. Right now, we have over 8 inches of really good ice and here are some photos of the first fish caught this year.



As I mentioned in the last update, we are attending 2 shows this winter, Springfield show in West Springfield, Mass. on February 22nd thru February 24th. At the Big “E”. The Suffern show which will be February 28th thru March 3rd in Suffern, N.Y. At the Rockland Community College. So....get ready!!! They will be here before you know it!! By the way end of these shows, we are pretty well booked up for the spring and many days in the fall. This reminds me, if any of you who had tentatively booked dates for this up coming year, please confirm or sent a deposit, please. Let me know your plans ASAP, please. A numbers of guys last year “forgot” we need confirmation before the shows start. 518-963-7351.


Every couple of years or so we have to raise our prices. Just like everything else in life and this is the year. All packages will go up slightly, but we still have the best deal around, which makes it very affordable for the average fisherman

Well guys, another year has started. 41 years for us! I hope it is a good year for all of us, and hope to see you soon. Happy New Year!

- Pete

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.
