Baltic Smelt

RTG TV gives you a chance to get to know informal St-Petersburg symbol - smelt fish.

The presenter Igor Vukolov is again doing his favorite activity - fishing, this time it is ice-fishing. Its almost impossible to find a place for ice-fishing near St-Petersburg in spring so the presenter had  to come almost to Karelia, there in Kluchevskaya bay there he finally found  precious fish. Smelt is a migratory fish, as scientists call it.  It goes spawning from seas into rivers. There fishermen are waiting for it. Our presenter caught 60 fishes in 3 hours. He also fried and tried the fish outside.
