    Sloooow... Been between the islands...down towards beaverton....SW of thor..E of thor...E of gina...woods bay....chicken pt so far. Think I have 9 fish....woof.

    Going to hit one more spot before I refuel and head west.

    Ice is great... got a little snow so the sled is happy! 45mph all day.

    New shove off PB to contend with... slight PIA but doable.

    Might have to go check that out... just set up between duclos pt and Bald shoaI.I was in 10' yesterday.

    Couldnt make it west along the south shore... open water from sand island to the mainland. Long ways around the other side and not enough snow to cut the island...

    Picked up half a dozen fish in VB...lots of dinks. Water is dirty....

    Wind can knock it off any time!

    LOL... I have some new ones! Too bad I cant post them... tells me it "processing" but nothing ever happens! Been going on a few weeks!

    15th spot was a charm! Between declos and bald shoal in 22FOW...Pulled 31 between 430 and sunset. Some quality fish too! 37 of em almost filled the bucket today!

    Id show you a pic, but....LOL.

    Think they are headed to VB... I would pick up 2,3,4 a pop then nothing for 20 min or so...

    Do you have any idea what the end of Hadden road looks like by any chance? Making a midnight run after work Friday night and was hoping to fish Virginia beach. We'll be walking out so I'm bringing waders if it doesn't look too brutal.

    I didnt get a look at it... but there was nobody out there yesterday...

    Made the run to snake today after only boxing 10 off the point this am..

    Sitting at 48 right now... lots of sorting.

    Ran around Blackbird pt to get here... 1 crack to cross and smooth sailing..

    Blackbird pt is the N pt of georgina island..We launched of of port bolster... about a 15 mile run around. Crossed 2 cracks...1 tight between gina and thor... but the one by snake was working... sled got a bath coming back. Might want to bring the ramps if youre running a quad.

    There is a shove at PB that popped up tue afternoon but Taj has kept a hole open to get out.

    The crack that you're referring to I saw last week. Runs across Willow Beach then curves out to the North or East of Snake Island. How did you end up for the trip?
