Lots of guys at smeltville. Not hearing much though. I did not bother to fish this weekend, the ice is still pretty thin with quite a bit of slush/snow on top. Only saw a few snow machines and quads out.
Thats my shanty and 6 wheeler on the far left of the pic. Not a lot of smelt in the shanty town. I went passed the group about 100 yards and the vex went nuts. Marked a lot of fish but they weren't bitting that good. Lots of slush and snow when you get passed the shanty town.
Fishing was slow this weekend, especially Sunday-something about an east wind. Lakers, perch everything was slow in biting on Sunday. I did hear a report of a coupleguys getting 35 smelt on Friday somewhere in Smeltville, they are there but have just begun to bite. Smelt should be going gangbusters around the 21st of Feb . Which is probably true but it just so happens to be the date of Winterfest 2004 and $1500 ice fishing contest too!
