To catch smelt, the simplest tackle is required – a winter fishing rod, fishing line, sinker, hooks. Tackle is lowered to the bottom and occasionally twitch. You can’t miss the bite of smelt-catfish – when you lift it up, the tackle gets heavier by 200-300 grams, and while lifting it from the depths, two or even three fish can cling. An interesting feature – smelt smells of fresh cucumbers. In general, smelt is unique, it is the only fish of its kind that does not need to be cleaned during cooking. To fry it, you just pull the tail from the bag, dip it in flour and in a frying pan...
