    Smelting was very popular at Raystown in the early to mid-90's.  But it kind of died out.  I don't know if there are still enough there to make it worth the effort.

    Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.

    We used to hit it probably 15-years ago now. Get a ton of them take them home and fry them up right then in the middle of the night - bones and all. Pretty fun, we got checked by the fish comish a few times I remember too.
