he'd be in the boat, with a few pint Mason jars, some 2" rocks, and some Miner'slamp. He'd put a rock into a jar, dump in a measure of the carbide, dip the jar in the water, screw on the lid real quick, and drop it over the side. "Wummp". and some fish would usually float to the top, and Pop would gather them with a dipnet. Row the boat a little ways, repeat.

That's one heck of a way to get fish. :shock:
At least it almost guaranteed dinner on the table that evening.
'Reminds me of Boudreaux, in his boat after the Warden had pulled alongside and admonished him longwindedly for his "percussive" fishin' technique, handed the Warden a lit stick of dynamite with the return admonition, "'You gonna talk or fish?" :shock:
