“I helped too with the shrimping, learning early how to untangle creek shrimp from the drop net , and later how to throw a cast net and pull a seine. We knew how get a whiting off the hook, tie a ripened chicken-back to a crab line and capture the crab with a scoop net, or call Daddy for help with catfish and stingrays. We could cook and pick shrimp and crabs before we were ten years old. Boiling crabs was even more ghastly than gutting a deer, as the scrambling crabs had to be dumped live into boiling water. But those were the necessary processes. We knew first-hand the sources of our dinner.”

- “Family Supper” by Josephine Humphreys
