Welcome to Hunt Gather Talk, Season Three. This season will focus entirely on fish and seafood, freshwater and salt. Think of this as the podcast behind my latest cookbook, Hook, Line, and Supper, which covers all things aquatic.
I am happy to be working with two title sponsors, E-Fish and Filson. These will be the only two commercial sponsors of the show, a move I’ve made to keep things as uncluttered as possible. I happen to already wear a lot of both Filson and I love what the folks at E-Fish are doing, so it’s a natural fit.
Every episode of Season Three will dig deep into some aspect of the fish and seafood world, from prep and how to sessions to sustainability and the farmed vs. wild debate, to how fish and seafood plays into other world cuisines, to episodes on specific kinds of fish.
In this episode I talk with my friend Jonathan Wilkins of Black Duck Revival, who, when he’s not hunting ducks, is catching catfish.
Jonathan lives in Arkansas, a catfish hotbed, and has caught them every which way, but we’re taking a long look at the traditions of trot lining and jug lining for cats, which is how some of the limited commercial fisheries for catfish do it, and is the method many, many people use to subsistence fish in the South.
For more information on this episode, here are some helpful links:
- If you want to go fishing with Jonathan, you can set that up here.
- Some more information about the catfish of North America.
- More information about trotlining.
- My recipe for blackened catfish, and catfish courtbouillon.
I have brought back Hunt Gather Talk with the hopes that your generosity can help keep it going season after season. My two sponsors help things a lot, but you are the third leg of the stool. Think of this like public radio, only with hunting and fishing and wild food and stuff. No, Hunt Gather Talk won’t be a “pay-to-play” podcast, so you don’t necessarily have to chip in. But I am asking you to consider it. Every little bit helps to pay for editing, servers, and, frankly to keep the lights on here. Thanks in advance for whatever you can contribute!
