The smelt are hangin out on some streams near Dilly in nice numbers right now, but after a few dipnetting sessions and even a dozen on a flyrod last night (smolt patterns under an indicator). I think I am sated on deep fried smelt.....SO, what have you folks done with smelt other than deep fry. (I'm not much of a pickled fish fan) and have you frozen them...and how did they come out? Should I head and gut em before freezing...please inform, cuz these buggers are tasty but I can't eat em everyday, and I'd love to stock a few up and pull some out in Jan. and have a fish fry. This may belong in the Pantry but thought I'd start here.
