We fished many times when the smelt were running. Would bring a small grill food and a few liquid refressments. There is a running path behind Mcormick place at the opening of Burnham harbor. Just drive to your spot and park with all the other smelt guys. Been there many times. The last time a Cop stops and says "When I come back everyone will get a parking ticket". I packed the car to move and when he came back he gave Me a ticket for driving on a path.
The next time out We setup was on the east edge of the Plantarium, with other smelters. As it grew dark We could hear the gangbangers that claim "The Rock" is theirs getting drunk. It was OK with Us till the beer bottles started crashing around Us. All the fishermen packed up and went home.
Smelt are cheap but not worth the risk.
Sorry about the negitive report but keep it in mind, don't want anyone to get hurt.
