Pond smelt are a popular catch during winter ice-hole fishing, eh wot? It's a simple sport, really. You open a hole in the ice, drop your line in...and then wait for a nibbly-nibbly! Not that I've tried. I find cold weather rather unappealing, so ice fishing is hardly a possibility...

[edit] Real Life

In real life, the pond smelt can actually be found in ponds, rivers, and streams. They are common in the Arctic. Pond smelt are most commonly found swimming near the surface in the middle of sources of water. In spring, pond smelt will ascend upstream to their mating grounds and spawn. When they mate, they go on shore and later off shore when they are finished. They have two rows of teeth. Their diet consists of algae, plankton, and insects. Most pond smelt do not live longer than three years. Pond smelt are commonly hunted and eaten by people.
