When will the smelt run start?

Recommended Posts

william wallace

Lets make some guesses on the exact date of the smelt run up on Superior. I'm going to say the 11th of April. I may even make a trip up. I think I might be a little early but with the warm weather and the rain I could be right. What do the rest of you think??

I hope your correct but Im guessing the 17th or so like last year. May be sooner but it always seems that the wind keeps us off for a week.

First decent night will be the 16th and will peak on the 20th will ideal weather. They will be in and out. I predict a qucker 'season'. You can probably guess where I pulled this knowledge from but the only ones that really know are the smelt.

When we get a few warm days in mid to late April and then a slight NE wind to blow it in the smelt will follow.

We seined on the 18th last year the night there were 5 foot rollers on park point. We were done in 15 min. with 30 gallons. The next day the outdoor section (who was written by the outdoor guy) read that the dip netters were dippin lester river but strong NErns keeped sieners off of park point. Not the pirates arrrrrr.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
