Hey Tim, I've got about 4 dozen smelt If you've got room for another person. They are not your average smelt however. These are 10 inchers complete with fins and tails. They were caught with rod and reel. We use them for lake of the woods northerns. I don't know if Fish lake northerns are quite fish enough for these guys. Let me know.

Nasty- How many do you have left. We might have to make another run if we use all of mine. I wouldn't mind going again anyway. I'd like to get another crack at some of these that folded my rod in half.

I'm not sure what smelt hooks are but I'll bring the smelt. And if we don't catch anything, these smelt are more than enough for a meal. Give me a call and we'll set plans.

there are 2 different ones that I know of.
One is a double hook that is inserted through the anus and out the mouth and the other is a single that goes in the mouth and out the back.

Double hook for bottom fishing and single for suspended
They look kinda like these, Im no artist...

I don't think you give yourself enough credit. Art skills like that, you could be looking at a new profession. Thanks for the images. Have you ever used quick strike rigs out there? That's all I've used for northerns tipppy fishing.

Out on Fish on the 22nd. Chased flags with a buddy and landed a limit of dandies (all between 4-8 lbs) Hit the crappies and gills right before dark. We caught about a dozen keepers. A couple dandy crappies. Here is a pic of the hogs with a few of the nicer panfish.

Nice job parp. That ought to feed you for a few days. Nice to see someone keep a few of those things. Thin down the herd out there.
