    About a week ago I went out cast netting shrimp I caught about half of a 5 gallon bucket and gave some to a older neighbor that don't get out as much anymore and some to one of my friends I hunt with and cooked and froze some for later meals.

    Damn son. I had no idea a guy could catch shrimp like that. Watched most of the catching video. Watched all of the cooking one. You sure know how to do both.

  10. Very nice... I need to get back to practicing my casting. Use to snag mullet sometimes 20 at a time with cast net. You just see a whole mess of them jumping out the water...

    Have you seen the shrimp run at night at Sebastian Inlet? It's a party.

    Really good survival tools, trot lines, fish traps, cast nets, seines, fish spears, limb lines, they all may be less than legal for many things today, but in a survival situation they have 3 advantages, they are reusable, they are quiet, and they limit the time you are exposed to other who might want to harm you or steal the fish. Some of the major advantages of fish are its high protein content, its wide availability, its ease in processing, and all the ways to store it, smoke it, dry it, can it, pickle it, salt it, in a fish trap you can just keep it alive until you need it. In most cases it also comes in sizes that are easy to process, 10 lbs of fish is a lot easier to handle than 800 lbs of beef.

    As always, thanks again for the video's and all the great tips on low tech survival. Remember seeing pictures of rabbit drives where a line of people drove the rabbits into nets and caught them. We cut a channel across the river in the ice in the winter as kids and drove fish down river to be speared, in the spring put a gill net across the river and kept the rough fish, Granddad smoked the larger ones or preserved them by drying them with lye and Grandmother pickled the smaller ones , it dissolved the bones, the cats got the heads etc, and Gramp used the guts, fish skin, etc in his garden for fertilizer, nothing went to waste.

    Lye soaked fish, usually cod but gramp did carp, sheepshead, big suckers, etc as well. Lutefisk History and Recipe
