    Those little fish are eaten pretty regularly over here. I don’t like them, but that’s not uncommon. They seem to be a love/hate kind of food.

    Them ain’t food. Them’s bait.

    popular pastime in maine, wisconsin, much of the northern US. smelt are amazing to eat right out of the water, and many people don’t bother cooking them.

    We go smelting in the NY Finger Lakes. Using nets in the streams that flow into the lakes you can catch them usually at night. It’s been a while, but I remember them being pretty tasty. We would catch hundreds of them and clean them, and fry them in batter.

    When my dad took me fishing as a kid he taught me to whack the fish I caught in the back of the head – where the spine meets the skull – with a sharp blow, using the back of a knife or something similar.

    This will stun or even knock out the fish so it doesn’t suffer as much. These people are throwing the fish onto the ice or even grilling them without stunning them. While I love eating fish I have to say that this looks like easily preventable suffering to me.

    Not a fan of Seom, I suppose?
