smelt

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone fished for northerns with smelt? I have a friend who swears by it, but I have never tried it. Is their any bait shops around Waterville that stock them?

I have used them up north on a few lake that contain bigger pike. They out fished suckers 3to1 and the fish we caught on them ran much bigger then the ones we caught on suckers. The key is to use a quick strike rig and just let them drop down with no weight best if you use a wind tip-up for extra jigging action.

I used to use them all the time.

A good tip - use food coloring. Yellows and orange are really interesting and productive at times...
