I've got no fresh ones to give you, but I put up a few in borax and froze them in plastic bags. If you want them leave an e-mail or phone # and I'll get ahold of you. Only made it out a couple evenings and it was kind of a spur of the moment deal. Didn't do great, but had a small smelt-fry and put a few in the freezer for bait.

A buddy and I did some seining last night from 9:30 till about 11pm. On our first pull we ended up with about a gallon in the net. In all I suppose we got somewhere around 6-7 gallons. We gave a couple spectators a gallon or so and they said only a couple people down by the creek, which was suprising to me.

Magicbus, if you are coming to Deer River today, I could hook you up with some smelt. Let me know at two one eight two five nine six eight three four.

sorry so slow guys.

thanks for the offer peatmoss. i'd take you up on it but bmc is going out on a limb and going to actually take me with him.

so hopefully there's a few left for the getting.

it also appears that why the crick was so quiet and peacefull was because i wasn't at the right one.

perhaps that's why everyone was slowing down and staring at me the other nite.

thanks everyone

Themagicbus and I did some seining this evening and ended up with 5-6 gallons. We were out from about 9 till 12. We also tried Tioga Beach on a whim and only got small perch and some little bluegills. Maybe they are in there earlier???

That's the end of smelting for me for the year. My brother and I had a meal of them today and I'm gonna throw some in the smoker. I've got 15 dozen put up for tip up fishing next winter, that should be enough! grin

Jason, great meeting you and hopefully I can get up yer way this summer for some monster gills!

Jason,

I figured you'd still be cleaning your cooler full of them silver devils! How did your kids like them? I tried to "bribe" my brother's 4 year old daughter into trying one. I set a dollar on the table and she said, "I can buy some gum with that dollar." Just when we thought she was gonna put the piece of smelt in her mouth, she rolled her eyes and said "Yuck", throwing it back on my plate. Too funny!

      Well hello stranger 🤣 been hiding in in the bush again.🤔😊

      Condensation in portables directly related to the amount of propane used. Each pound of propane burned produces about 1.6 # of water. (1 1/2 pint) Ice melt from heater also adds moisture. Better insulated, less heat & condensation. A floor also greatly reduces moisture. The colder the outside temp the greater visible condensation. At -17 Deg. frost visible in my 949i Eskimo Hub - Big Buddy running on Hi, 18,000 BTU. At 21,600 BTU per pound propane frost in 4 hours on walls and celing. New Otters have excellent insulation, better than my Eskimo.

      This is missing the point so far I didn’t even want to start commenting on it.  So, that’s it, I’m done with that one.   Wardens should be following the mandate for whatever reason one wants to choose.  And we have the right to ask them to or not let them in.  Pretty simple.  And I’m not a mask Nazi either.  I hate em too but I wear them for others.
    • Wanderer
      Seems intentional, I would say.  They’d probably have too many and maybe too congested there?  Or just more of closed residential perk?   Nice to have some discussion on it even though the OP didn’t seem to care after all.

      Snowmobile trails not good. Haven't seen any grooming. Only good place to ride is in the woods. You can go anywhere on a wheeler in the woods and most anywhere on lakes. Look out for slush on lakes as we've had alot of that.
    • smurfy
      just talked to a friend of mine, north of deer river and said they havent, didnt get alot of snow with the last roiund. he said getting around on the lakes seemed pretty easy.   i  was up over the new years weekend and when i drove home the trails i did see along with the road ditches looked pretty beat up. thats the best i got!!!!!!!
    • SkunkedAgain
      When I was up two weeks ago, the lake snow was getting thin and was barely thick enough in the woods for snowmobiles. Have we added much snow lately?   Any word on the trails?
    • SkunkedAgain
      Wear one of those suits if you've got one.    I'd bet that if those virologists didn't have the suit, and had the choice between nothing or a mask, they would likely choose the mask all day long. It's better than nothing. I don't think that the *powerful* mask lobby is out there pushing doctors to encourage mask use just for financial gain! I certainly don't do it for the comfort or looks.
    • SkunkedAgain
      That looks warm. When are we all invited over?  
    • CJH
      I bought my new Thermal Otter Hub on clearance at REEDs last year.  I'd check there.  I am ordering from them more and more.   I get a touch of dampness when I heat it up, but it definitely doesn't drip like my old canvas Clam flip over did.
