And they like to wrap around things. Like your arm. Kinda freaks you out the first time.

We target them in early Spring up here. A few of them reach 20 pounds or better. Biggest one in this picture is around ten.

Fish from ten to a hundred feet of water, occasionally deeper. Bright spoons worked two to three feet off sand or gravel bottoms, and plastic jigs fished just inches from the bottom do the trick quite nicely.

They are a delicious eating fish, but do not keep well unless frozen, totally immersed in water, and ice cream buckets work good for that.

Next batch I catch, I'll take some video of the cleaning process, Dave. It's actually very simple, and wastes virtually no meat.

I hope that remark doesn't mean you've switched from a leopard-print to a sheer thong.

Dave - what's with the new regs on using smelt in MN? Is it just me or is it a load of dung?

According to new regs, we can't use frozen smelt or ciscoes unless they have been processed by a bait dealer that has processed them to eliminate VHS. http://news.dnr.state.mn.us/index.p...d-smelt-used-for-bait-must-be-preserved/

I think it's a load of dung and would LOVE to know what special process they are using to kill the virus. I understand not wanting it to spread, but how hard is it going to be to find smelt this year for northerns?
