Looking for Smelt?

Recommended Posts

I am heading up to Red Lake at the end of janurary with a group of guys on our yearly trip and i am looking for a place that i can by some Smelt for the pike up there. I would like to find about a dozen or so frozen smelt about 4 to 6 inches long for the trip. I live in south western minnesota and been looking all over down here in the big grocery stores with no luck. Need some help please.

You are looking for smelt now? Why do you have to be looking for smelt now? If you would have been looking for last year at this time I would have had all you needed. Thousand of them 100's of pounds, and not a single person wanted any. I had to use them for trapping bait. Also I made my cat and dog eat 100's of them, good thing though I found out that they are amazing for their coats.

Sorry I just thought that this would be a great place to vent on the fact that I caught way to many smelt a few years back.

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
