Default Sardines

I love me some sardines. Just had 3 cans with crackers. Just wanted to do a real pole on some of your favorite cans.

I like them little Brisling sardines. About the size of a big bass minnow. If they packed in green chili's or hot sauce they even better.

Love sardines!
Most folks don’t know that there is no actual fish that is a sardine.
It’s any small fish of the herring family.

Mustard!!!! Yummm

Back in Elementary School I would take Sardines and crackers to school. Teacher would put me at my own table away from the class because they smelled so bad (according to the class). Even sent a letter home stating to my parents to pack me something else. Only downside was the chicks didn't like me because if them.

Can’t say as I’ve ever actually eaten any. The only thing I’ve ever done was used them in live traps as a kid. I did buy a can of spam the other day but haven’t opened it.

Maybe, but it's good tasting cat bait!


Before the days of dog proof coon traps, there was such a thing known as a leg-hold trap. And back when I trapped coons, I'd use my sardine cans as a form of bait. So.... I guess you could say they's a good coon bait too.


Fan, of the fish in a can, with mustard or hot sauce.

After a morning of quail hunting, my Dad and I would eat regular sardines with sharp cheddar cheese and crackers and a cold beer. Sometimes Vienna sausages for the meat. Helped to have a pretty strong appetite.

Two notes about sardines:

1. They make great catfish chum! Get a can of sardines (or 2 or 3) packed in water (not oil!). Poke a few holes in the top. Tape a rock or something to the bottom to keep it upright. Throw it out where your catfish bait is. Works great, try it!

2. When I was a kid, most sardines were real small, like about pencil-sized, maybe 1 1/2" long. Now they're all bigger. Can you still get those small ones? I haven't found any.

Another vote for mustard sauce and saltines. A dash of tobacco and it's on!




And I may or may not have taped an empty can under the boss's office chair.

Try the brisling sardines. Those are the small ones.


This thread makes me want to can or jar a bunch of small shad. Anyone ever try this?
