Recently I have noticed fishermen bottle fishing in the river in front of my house. They will drop about a hundred (two) litre soft drink bottles capped and empty, baited and dropped along the Tennessee River. They will let the set for several hours and then chase them and harvest their catch.
My question is what do they do with them. How can they get them certified for sale. There is obviously too much for home consumption.
I know of no restaurants in the area that would take their catch and cook them for sale.
I watched them last Sunday and it appears that they caught several hundred pounds. They obviously cannot consume that much.
Appreciate your thoughts.
