WTG Tony, that was open water couple days ago.  It will make some serious ice next couple days!

Thanks tony. I almost didn't walk out when my spud got wet on the first throw but ice was consistent all the way across just put my big boy pants and tip towed out. Jon I tried to get you out there... when I got a hit on my first drop with 3 chasers I knew it was worth it. White curly tail with a white jig head did the trick. Even after they bit the tail off they still crushed it

Ugggghhh!!!
Dang you Tony! I've got perch and crappie pulling me in one direction and your report pulling me the other.
I almost want a crack at it before the flood of people this weekend.  :-\
The angle of the dangle is directly proportionate to the heat of the beat.

I couldn't believe how skinny they were. Couldn't get them to burp up anything all had empty stomachs. Didn't even mark a school of smelt either I remember seeing nice clouds last season

Yeah had them in the narrows.  Never left the screen all day.  They were some of the smallest ones I've ever caught.

Hey adktony I hear you ran into my buddy out there today (bornoutside). We were looking at the map and saw a couple spots a touch north of where you guys were today that have us interested. Gonna hit them Saturday morning.

It was nice to have a little reassurance on the thin ice. Kinda dumb going solo but worked out well lot of good spots all over the lake just stay away from the deep holes reel force and I had to find that out the hard way a couple yrs ago both putting up goose eggs. Never went back lol

What do you use to catch the smelt, I remember on Champlain  using a flat metal bar about 5 inches long by 1/2 in wide with hook leader and a piece of smelt?

That setup was standard on Champlain, but on Schroon with the tiny smelt there a Hali and a grub works well. Try different color Hali's til you find something that works.
