The Christmas rush is on! A steady mix of anglers and shoppers visited Blade’s Bait & Tackle today. Anglers heading out to the bay on what I would call safe walkable ice. Shoppers looking for something special for their hard water enthusiast. They came to the right place. Ice continues to thicken and I’m sure even with the Christmas Eve warm up in the forecast, light motorized traffic will hit the upper bay soon. I took a picture last night around 9 o’clock. To my surprise, after an iPhone update my camera was able to gather an abundance of light. That’s the moon. Not the sun.
