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.

Good for all sorts of stuff. TP, paper towels or wash cloths. UN-sterilized gauzeÖ Well, you get the picture. I have a box and I also carry a small tube of them in my Man bag all the time. They work fairly well for a lot of stuff and for many different uses as a hygiene product of some kind. Personally I think they are worth the money.

Randy
They have that small sized tablets in a lot of our dollar stores.
I used them for a few years, but I found them too small for a lot of things.

The past 2 hunting seasons I used a similar tablet, but it is about the diameter of a silver dollar and 1/2 inch thick.
You still simply add a few drops of water to them, but they are bigger and stronger.

Both sizes are available on amazon

Back in the 1990's there was a group of 7 or 8 of us that use to bow fish carp in a couple of different dykes.
They are an invasive species that out competed native fish.
Every Thursday during bow fishing season you would find anywhere from 2 to 7 or 8 of us bow fishing this dyke.
We would get there after work a fish until dark.

1 day we noticed a couple of Chinese gentlemen using rod and reel to fish for carp, they were there before we arrived.
As they were packing up to leave we asked them how did they do.
They got nothing, between the 3 of us we got 5 carp, when we asked them if they wanted them they were happy and tried to pay us (we refused)
Next week same thing.
After that they would just show up around the time we were leaving and pick up the catch.
If they were late they knew where we would leave them at.

None of us were drinkers, so they would give us different Chinese deserts and candies as thank you.
They hated the end of bow fishing season
