you do not need a license to sell smelt if you are a resident of wisconsin

B-Z I could be wrong but legally you cannot sell the smelt that you are catching unless licensed to do so.

Sorry that is Lake Park road a little way past Americinn. Turn left on 36th street. The place we went is a private home up the road from 36th . Just to the east of Bretting Manufacturing there is a right of way which is basically undeveloped 36th street. You can look that up on ashlandcowi.wgxtreme.com. to make sure you are legal. It goes straight to the lake and then goes east and west along the shore. It looked as if there may have been people parked in their parking lot to the side of it and I dont know if it is posted or legal to park on Bretting property so dont take my word for it. Also I dont know the condition of the bottom. there are a few places in Ashland that are legal but the bottom is loaded with rocks and debris which make it impossible to drag a net through.You would have to get your waders on and walk out to feel the bottom .On the xtreme site you can look up all ownerships private and public and UNDEVELOPED ROW just to make sure you are legal.Last year I went up a few hours early to scout out a few before the crew arrived.But legally you could park out on the road and walk through the woods of any right of way. The one by Bretting has a big { sewage } pump looking thing right out by the road

Anglers All has seine nets for sale. Nothing smaller than a 30 foot net. I bought one this year and it worked great. I love the material it is made out of. It cost me about 70 dollars.

was up in Ashland last night to get some smelt from River Rock Bait Shop, got what I needed and stopped down by Pamida beach as it was getting dark just to observe. Old timer out on the pier was crushing them with his dip net, getting almost an ice cream pail full each pull. Guys seining looked like they were having some success as well. Was cold and windy, 36 degrees air temp. Popcan, they had some sein nets at River Rock, not sure on price. You could also check with Angler's All

I'm sorry some of you guys had some poor luck this year. I did very well Saturday night. My friends and I started on the beach across from L&M Tractor Supply, or what I call Pamida beach. It produced some smelt ranging from six to twenty smelt a pull with a thirty foot sane net. We filled about a third of a five gallon bucket by about 11. A friend then contacted me that they were having better luck east of Ashland about a mile or two from Pamida beach. When we got there, our friends had several five gallon buckets full of smelt already. around 12 we started pulling out nets pulling in about 30 smelt a pull. At about 2:45 am the run really came on and we were pulling at least a hundred plus smelt a pull.
