Frozen Smelt????

Post By: NDgrown      Posted: 2/17/2017 8:09:45 AM     Points: 120    
Does anyone have any idea on where I can buy frozen smelt? I have checked half a dozen places and no luck.

You might check with some of the Asian markets.
I believe they carry them.

Have you tried King Soopers meat market? Our local store doesn't always have them on hand, but they can get them.

The Pacific Market on 120th and Main trotline referenced has everything that swims. Great place to buy bait cheap

If you really, really want super high quality bait, google up the
Blue Water Bait Company in British Columbia. They can send you excellent tray bait frozen anchovies and herring, plus a number of other species that they catch fresh themselves. They are sent packed in dry ice. You can see the actual bait on their website. However, given the expense of Customs and shipping, plan on spending about $250. Don't know of any stateside bait outfit that is willing and able to send any frozen bait of that quality.

Cabelas has them, and so does Jax. Many of the gas stations on 285 also cary them... Gunsmoke in Buena Vista usually has them.
