Some of the Cubs or other grociers sell it frozen...I have tried it, but it seems to work better up in the northern lakes thet have ciscos or white fish though. Good luck with it if you do try it.

Call Blue Ribbon. I believe they had it last year. I got some at Mike's just east of I35 on Hwy 8.

Do you guys usually just put smelt on tip ups or on a rod? I heard it works good though...

I always used smelt on a tip-up, but I imagine a dead stick would work. Any quick strike rig would work, but growing up we always used pike hooks. I'm not positive what they are actually called, but it's a rather large hook that is run through the entire length of the smelts body. With the tip of the hook at the smelts head.

      I bet you got a great deal on it this time of year.  I absolutely love my 8" ION as it has a nice enough size hole when using ice house, also, very light weight when drilling multiple holes.  Love the reverse!  Really makes the experience more fun and not so tired as i was using strike master before and i needed to sit down after drilling 4 holes.  When and if you get to use it.  let us know what you think.   Congrats!   Bob
