I am going to give away my age, but back in the day, we would be fishihng East of Mouse Ils and would be cusing those bait robbers for taking our minows while we where fising for perch. Same thing would happen when ice fishing at Huron for perch between the piers. We would still keep and clean and deep fry and dip in ketchup and horseraddish and wash down with plenty of barley pop and have a heck of a fish fry.

Use to live in Michigan and Higgins lake is a lake for targeting smelt.

Personally, I think they have move more to the East and deeper cleaner water.

caught 30 smelt today though the ice the bite was slow.Was sight fishing in 6 ft clear lake erie water.Had a number 12 glow jig with a waxy a 14 would have been better.They came in 4 or 6 at a time not very agressive today most of them just bumped and left. Also seen a guy catch a 15 inch steelhead on a tip up
