It says "Smoked Goldies" on the bag. Its hand written on the bag I mean.
Anyone familiar with this smoked fish. My friend does not know the difference between a sauce pan and a frying pan so he could tell me nothing.
Minnesota is known as "The Land of 10,000 Lakes." There are five Great Lakes, most of which don't border Minnesota, so it's unlikely your fish came from one of them
Here's information on what I believe is your fish: "Morey’s Smoked Whiting (goldies) are hot-smoked, combining the large flaky meat and semi-moist texture with the smoky flavor from 100% hickory smoke."
