DB SMELTS
« on: Apr 21, 2010, 10:34 AM »
A customer was in my shop today talking fishing and jawing with my and me today. He said he'd had soem luck with mooselook wobblers but he had the best luck with DB Smelts. Said he got them in Rangeley. The only place he's ever found em. I looked em up and seen where they sell em. Anyone tried em? Had any luck with them?

I've caught fish with them and some of them are my go to lure when I'm fishing hardware. Lots of tackle shops have them now.

Yes, they are everywhere here in Southern Maine and New Hampshire now.
LL Bean carries them, Kittery Trading Post carries them, and most of your small bait stores carry them as well.

They do work.

They are made by a guy in Berlin NH.
Ive used them for 7 or 8 years now (bought the first one when they were still only sold in berlin NH) and they are my go to hardware. I hardly put a mooselook on anymore

I was introduced to these great lures by my friend who lives in Oquossic. We used them on Rangeley Lake with great sucess on salmon. River's Edge Sport Shop has them in Oquossic. I have used them in my local ponds and they work great also. You can't go wrong, they are a staple in my box
