« on: Feb 01, 2010, 11:10 AM »
 Anyone else out there like jigging for smelt ? I went to canadice lake last week and got 75-100 in a few hours. was fishing at the boat launch in about 10 FOW. Lost my ice with the warm spell. Any one want to try it we could get togather.      Gary

     I came by there at about 12.30 last night. Seen one vehicle, almost stopped. But I had sneakers on!!!!
I have a under water light that I drop in the hole. try to get them up to the ice. works pretty well.
     we sure do not need the coyotes that we have ,But I like to Liston to them!! Wasn't that long ago that there was none. now there everywhere!!!

Hey Gary,   I think me and some buddies are fishing Honeoye on Sat. maybe we could shoot over to Candice and try for some smelts.  Will you be out there
that afternoon?   We may just fish H. Lake for a while as I've heaard the lake is pretty crazy with sleds and quads.   Can you only get them at night?
I assume you need a floating light- is this correct?

look forward to your response.

             I will be there sat.  night! I try to get there before dark so I can set up in the light.
I have a under water light that I use, But sometimes A lantern setting on the Ice works better!
i use small jig tipped with a spike. I try to work them up to the Ice, So that I am Fishing in only
a foot of water or so. the faster you get them out the faster you can catch another one!
   any one that want to join me WELCOME!!! The more the merrier. i fish at the boat launch.

   Dave, Is that you? I went Fishing with you before! Lost my wallet!!!! I live on canadice rd. Now
