"LIVE" Port Huron Smelt Dipping Report (4/16)

Discussion in 'Lk. St. Clair and St. Clair River' started by WALLEYEvision, Apr 16, 2011.


  1. Dipping just North of the Black River in Port Huron. As of 9 pm, one group of anglers caught 8 Smelt, another group of anglers caught 6 Smelt, and a 3rd group caught 3 Smelt. I got the big goose egg so far...arrived late. Will make another pull and update after 9:30 pm.

  2. nothing else on my 2nd pull, everyone else waiting for the weather to break. Strong South trying to change over to the West. Sprinkles, rain showers off and on.

  5. Moved further North...

    Slightly better catches of Smelt here, BUT nowhere near as good as the reports I've heard about.
    Packed it in because of the weather.

    Will do another "LIVE" report on my next trip to the St. Clair River.

    BTW...if anyone is looking for some FREE bait, the boardwalk in PH is full of nightcrawlers.

    Good fishing!

  7. Know him??? I haven't talked to him in years..ah weeks...I mean hours. :lol:
     
  8. The smelt are always running exactly on the nights I happen to be absent! Every year same story-I can go out 6 nights out of 7 and that one night everybody will be doing great.
