    The biggest factor in the reduction in smelt IMO was the introduction of salmon & rainbows into the Great Lakes. In part they were introduced to control the alewife's but they liked the smelt also.

    Many years ago on Lake Simcoe near Brechin the smelt would run so thick we had to dump some out of the net in order to lift it.
    Good Luck & Good Hunting !
