6 A Big Siberian Catch

A Big Siberian Catch

Posted on March 21, 2011 by

Chebak  is a species of fish from the Carp family. Today we are going to have a big chebak catch.

Across the network:


There are subspecies of roaches in Siberia and the Urals, Yakutia. They are found in small rivers, ponds and lakes. Due to their rapid production and growth, they are the most populated compared to other species in the region. Chebak is a popular name.

Chebak- a plain, unpretentious kind of fish. Chebak in Yakutia is a national treasure. Its the "inner world" of many people, a local favorite and an integral part of the Northern Russian tradition. They say taking out a few bits of glass from a kaleidoscope makes the picture not that fabulous and beautiful. In the North, no one throws away the Chebak, if you did, then the flavor of life will never be the same.


The snow is still soft and not stale. During this time the chebak is not required for food. People have enough reserves for consumption till fall. The chebak is used as live bait for burbot and pike.

    Damnit ER, this post makes me want to go camping and fishing in the wild, really bad. It’s making me hungry for my all time favorite campfire food too.

    I like my freshly catched (insert any fish name here) fish cleaned well remove all the guts, add some garlic and a slice of bacon in the middle wrapped in foil and cooked in the coals of an open fire. Add a well roasted potato smoothered in (real) butter, salt & pepper, sour cream and chives, some baked beans (I prefer Bush Beans) and a nice cold beer (I have several favorites and none of them are Bud or MGD). :)
