How crazy would it be to use an 8x8 drop net from a boat, if I built something to raise it and lower it? would I go anywhere on the shoreline or were the fishermen are? Sorry to use the reports page. PM if you dont want to use this page, thanks. Pablo

The local Bait Shops and Smelters were out smelting all weekend but didn't get any smelt at all right in Ashland. Just a few shiners. However, One Bait Shop did say they pulled in about 1/2 of a bucket throughout the entire Sunday night....could this be the start??? Stay tuned!!! The water temperature is around 42 degrees right now. The forecast calls for clouds today and sunny skis Tuesday and Wednesday with temps in the 50's during the day. Maybe some warmer temps will help. Everyone was so certain there would be an early run because the ice went out so early, but the Smelt only answer to Mother Nature and they just aren't quite ready to run. Should be any day though.

Fished the bay this weekend. Ended up going 20 for 29 on cohos. Some just got off and others were lost because of clips not releasing. It was a good time. Went smelting Saturday night. Nothing doing there. All we were picking up was lake shiners. My guess is wont start running til end of this week. The good part is water temp is right around 40 so it shouldnt b too long from now.

Jim, Sorry for the late reply, but thanks for weighing in on the smallmouth situation for May. I know its early, I just always start getting excited this time of year. The fishery you have in your back yard is just plain awesome. I wish I lived closer. I am still planning on coming up the weekend before memorial day. I am looking forward to the reports beginning May 1 st.

Nope, no LAW saying you need an anchor.. Smart to have one.. Same as it is smart to have a VHF radio on board - but not a law either.

Also, belive I Omitted that if your boat meets the requirements for a fire extinguisher, need on of those too. Ie, inboard motor or a fuel tank that is permanently mounted.

Here is a good website telling you what you need..

Jim It has been my understanding that you also need an anchor with 100 ft or more of line attached to it. Am I wrong ?

Oh, and for the smelt run, I do think the start will be this weekend and it will peak this week to next weekend sometime..

Thats my guess, but, I'm not a smelt either.. Smile

Jake - havent heard much on the perch. Will tell ya, water temps are just at and around 40 right now..

Go-Devil - all Landings are open and usable now..

Rihno - Flares you need (3), marine band radio is not required, you also need a signaling device like a horn or whistle that can be heard to a half mile, also need a approved PFD for all on board and a Type IV throwable cushion.

So what's your prediction for the peak of the Run? I'm going to be coming up the 11th - 15 for my bachelor party, and I'm worried we are going to miss the run! Every day that goes by and I see they aren't running makes me happy!
