Clip: Season 6 Episode 3 | 3m 37s | Video has closed captioning.

Every year, the Sacred Heart Fire Department hosts an all-you-can-eat smelt feed fundraiser. Native to the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, “smelt entered the Great Lakes accidentally in 1912 when they escaped from an inland lake in Michigan where they had been stocked as forage fish,” according to the Minnesota DNR. The feed in Sacred Heart is a tradition for many in the area. Helter smelter!
