    I keep watching the shoreline down on the island but the ice hasn't gone away from it yet. The creeks where they usually get them there are still iced up.

    I'm keeping my eyes open for them too! I'll tell ya when I've got some since I'm going to be able to take nightly runs when I think the time is right. I believe (but could be wrong) that they hit East of the Sault near me first then work their way up towards Harmony, etc.

    I think your right, they hit the Island first then Goulais later on. Were going to fish both ways this year.....can't wait!

    Gawas is still froze over even though the creek is running just fine. I think it may be another week before it's open. I'll keep watching since I pass it every morning/evening.

    They should be up in the island late next week. I was talking to a friend in Spanish today and they told me that they are getting them there. Usually after he gets them there they are here a week later.

    I figure by Sunday night they should be on the Island. The ice is partially away from the shore but only by a couple of feet here and there. The rest of the bay is still frozen up because the water isn't moving.

    I'll be dipping my net in Sunday night and letting you all know.
