A few smelts last night at Fisher's. Stopped in today but it was a little too windy and some of the ice was cracking so it was a short visit for me.

I was inside of South Cove and only managed two smelt (and 500 pinfish) so I moved to Lwr Washabuck and picked up enough smelt for supper last night. It was a beautiful morning on the ice.

The ice was around 3".
