Nice feed with a hook or with a net did you catch them with.

Cool. Have never targetted smelt. Looks like a blast. The steady action would keep the kids busy. Nice work

I remember a time when there were 8 inchers available on Simcoe back in the 80s when they were plentiful.

What! I didn't know anybody did that.....ice fishing for smelt with a hook. Friggin great stuff man.
I love eating smelt and I could imagine it might be that much better if you catch it that way and the cold water.
