There's still ice in a few places. East of the Sault? Cause North was still partially frozen in most places...at least the other day anyway.

They are running in Spanish area right now just started. They won't hit this area for at least another week or 10 days.

My Aunt in law called Harmony yesterday, they said they are definitely in and they would be serving them as of today....were heading out tonight and I can't wait!

Smelts are in past Harmony. I went last night. Still not a really good run yet though. We got plenty, but a lot of time we scooped and only got one or two in the net. I think by Friday it should be really good.

we went last night (thursday) and only got 1 or 2 per scoop (harmony), not really running yet, came home with about 40 after 1 hr. probably, sat/sun/mon will be good nites.

Anyone getting any at St Joe's?

04-24-2009, 07:45 PM
I only got about 6 the other night, could've been the timing. I wasn't willing to stay out too long since we were so tired. If I'm awake I'll go later tonight. We are hoping they are running Saturday night on St. Joes because we've invited overnight guests so that we could go smelting and have a cleaning party.

old mill bay sucked 2 hrs only 2 dozen smelts

just got back from harmony, filled a big cooler full in about 75 mins. They (smelts) are at the mouth of the river, that is where everyone is getting them. The next few nights should be good.
