Took the afternoon off work when I heard the capelin were coming in on middle cove beach. Kids had a blast filling up buckets with these tiny fish. Simple coating in flour with salt and pepper and fried up on the 4M.

sounds a little like the Grunion fish we have here . at night they lay there eggs on the sand and then go back out with the next wave . you can only grab em by hand thats the rule . ive done it a few times .

So a bit like our Smelt. Sounds tasty!

We use scissors to snip the head, then to the rear, one finger cleans them out. Done.

We dipped smelt as kids, both from rivers and the surf. It was a blast, and sometimes we'd fill our 5 gallon-bucket limit in one or two dips!

Interesting how widely distributed these sort of fish are: Newfoundland, Michigan, and the PNW. I wonder how much of this range was introduced?

We fried them up and ate them whole--head, guts and tail!
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.

yeah that is how we do it too with scissors Chuck. Similar to smelt for sure. People fill up Coleman coolers with them here. It’s always a fun day!

I haven't had a capelin in years. Think the last time was at moose camp about 10 or 12 years ago.

How do you cook these Steve? Smoked capelin is probably the most common way up here.

Grunions. I was a newbie to the San Diego area years back and was invited to go on a Grunion harvesting at night. I was sure it was a hoax, like the Snipe hunt used for BSA initiations back where I grew up. Big surprise for me when I scooped them up on Silver Strand beach.
