Yes you can see clouds of smelt out graphing over deeper water. I have caught several that were puking up 4" smelt. Infact this spring I had 14" puke up a half a dozen while I was getting the net in the water. 2 others his same size came up an nabbed them. No need to waste good grub I guess.

There seems to be plenty bait these days gizzards, smelt, trout, etc. But I think the problem has been an over population of small bass and too many little walleye. I've been fishing the lake a long time and it seems like its on an upswing lately. Science could prove me wrong but its just I've been noticing.

The lake is getting better....tons of smelt to feed on. Taking away the limits on walleyes has really helped the remaining 'eyes. It would be nice if they'd put a slot on smallies.....the 10 to 12 inch ones need thinned a bit. The bigger smallies have some fat guts lately.
