Whole (or round) means they are caught and frozen in a vacuum pack immediately. They are not cleaned, gutted, scaled, etc. These smelt are expected to be 3"-5" (and 16-22 per pound) but not always --- PLEASE NOTE: these are wild animals and the grading for these are sometimes off and sizes can vary. NO REFUNDS due to size--I do not guarantee you will have all fish 3"-5".
They make great bait for the big fish--big walleye, northern, muskie, salmon, and sturgeon and we have a lot of zoos and wildlife rehabilitation places that purchase from us. And great eating for those that eat whole fried smelt.
In spring of 2020 we changed our supplier to a processor that will vacuum pack our smelt and produce a more consistent quality and grading. As of May 2021 the run was very poor and we have a small quantity that will not last long. And yes it's of course more expensive that usual.
