I haven't been smelt dipping in 3 or 4 years. I'd like to try it again. Last time out at the Duck Lake channel, they were running so thin we spent our time netting steelhead and whitefish instead (ya gotta be quick, and they were released). I've tried various places in the U.P. with success but am looking for something close to home in Ottawa, Muskegon, or Oceana counties. Does anyone have any info/is it a fruitless effort? Perhaps I've been to the wrong outlets?

I know the population has really declined in Lake Michigan. Is it really that bad all along the lakeshore?

If no other options exist, is it still any good along US 2, the Carp River, or the NE U.P.?
