Ice report; Baseline rd. has several large pressure cracks, running in every direction. The north end is open, way out, in front of the creek,& over to the bath house, & the rest of the area is sketchy. There are 4-6 shanties out on the ice Right now, in the smelt grounds. Smelt jr. was not brave enough to venture out to see how the ice is  (smart kid ).  Him & I will check it Thurs. afternoon, but I have a feeling , we are done.

Glad to see you are hanging it up for this year.  Your body deserves a nice break.
Fisherman's Prayer
   I pray that I may live to fish
          Until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last cast,
       I then most humbly pray:
When in the Lord's great landing net
           And peacefully asleep,
      That in His mercy I be Judged
              BIG ENOUGH TO KEEP.

    I was hoping for at least 1 more "Hike" out to the Smelt grounds this year !   At least I ended the year, sharing my shanty w/ a great guy. Thanks for making the trip up here, just wish we could have got you a few more , to make it worth the trip. Hoping the smelt have a good spawn this spring & the good ole days return soon. Smelt jr. & me will be watching the creek for a "Run", in the next few weeks.

Sounds like the fat lady is singing on the north end. It was good to see a few smelt come threw the hole this year  :thumbsup:. The lake shows promise for the future. It may take a few years. It was good to fish by you Smeltbuster. See you on the hard water next year good lord willing.
