I am curious, How long does the smelt run last once it start's. A day or two, a week, 10 days???

The reason I ask is I am wondering how much of a window I have to get up there once you guy's report that there in!

Also I know the run is down from the years of glory but how many smelt can a guy pull in a few hours...Not the best and not the worst but what is a good average.

With gas at $2.59 a gallon I would sure hate to run the 200 miles round trip for 9 Smelt because the run started yesturday and was over yesturday! cool.gif

Watch the board, we'll have the info rather quickly. Ususally you'll have about a week. The past few years a person could do pretty good by todays standards. We took over 30 gallons in about two hours. 30 gallons is WAY TOO MANY to clean!! ha ha Your best bet is to keep the sein and waders in the truck, when the run is happening and the weather is in our favor head straight over. It is only about two hours from your neck of the woods.

Me being ready is not the problem...It's that family obligation thing that put's a crimp on the fishing! grin.gif

So from the time I hear there running if I can get there within the next 5-6 days or less I should be alright?

Boy I hear ya about that being a lot to clean, years ago my dad was thoughtful enoufgh to bring home 50 gallon for us kids to clean!

I know that it is fishing type hit or miss deal but If I could get 5-10 gallon I would be a very happy camper!
