Late, late, way late update.
Was up @Half Day pits, went to the one farther away from DPR as the near one seemed pretty dried up. Saw an old timer who said he caught a medium bass on live minnow and 2 guys battling a 15# ish carp successfully.
My dead rig with smelt on it, didn't get a sniff although due to equipment issues it may not have been a fair test.
