Thanks, Tom. I remember, quite fondly, the catfish dinners that my Grandparents church in Alabama used to put on in the summer.

The first time my son came up from Alabama he wanted to have a dinner of fresh caught fish. He happily cleaned them and we all ate well! LOL smile

At one time I used to work for a Japanese company.and also fished almost every day during the season. My Japanese friends were horrified when I told them that I threw back all the bluegills and yellow perch because I thought they had too many bones. They said they would take all I could give them because the fish was much fresher than what they could buy in the store. I didnít have to clean them either. They also paid me with beer, sake and Suntory whisky.

Sounds like you had a good deal going Ray. I don't think I could work at a Japanese restaurant. I'd wipe out the buffet!

When we went to Florida and Universal Studios the hotel we stayed at had a Japanese steakhouse attached to it. The food was GREAT!

I couldnít find any sushi restaurants in my area that I liked so I had to learn how to make my own. Good, made in Japan, knives are not cheap either. Only Randy could afford a set. I have only 2 knives that are made in Japan. The set of 4 was made in China.

I ALMOST bought a set of Japanese knives when I was stationed there, but didn't. Probably a good thing as the set I was looking at was in the UPPER three figure range, and that was almost 30 years ago.

Perhaps you should have bought them. If they were hand forged, thatís about what one High end knife costs today.
