Chequamegon Bay, Ashland County
MOON PHASE (88%)
Smelt Report, Thursday, April 26th.
At this time Smelt Season has still not started in the Chequamegon Bay as there is still ice on the Bay and along the Shore. Usually smelting does start in April but winter and ice on the Bay have been a little stubborn this year…it all depends on Mother Nature. We will keep you posted and let you know when smelting begins. Be patient...don't give up!!!
Can anyone give me some advice.... I'm up and was suppose to be smelting but that obviously isn' happening but I did bring tip ups and a hand auger. No locator or sled. I just want to walk some where close or just set up off shore somewhere along the Ashland shoreline for some walleye or whatever else. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Was thinking of setting up by the pier off Bayview park as we have netted walleyes there during the smelt run. I have smelt to use as bait or can pick up minnows. Pm if you wish.
