My great-granddad used to tell of throwing fresh kernels of buckeye mixed with flour in the water it is said to stupefy fish so they can be plucked from the surface of the water. I also read that California soap-plant bulbs and turkey mulein when crushed will do the same. He said during starving times this was used. Has anybody ever tried this, it could be useful in an emergancy.

I've never tried any of the methods. I always heard green walnuts in a croker sack would do it.???

Never used that but popped a few with explosive devices years back. Dynamite is tough but humane on them. Loosens their backbones so they're droopy in the frying pan. Carbide just stuns them. Game wardens use zapper prods for collecting eggs and such. I'm not gonna post details tho. :)

Heres some info,Careful,you'd be eating poisoned fish if not careful also I'd say placing ANY type of poison in water would be illegal,even in a "survival" concept.
