    "... apparently they squirm when they hit the pan even though they’re dead. ..."

    Frog legs do the same thing.

      I’d like to try some smoked ones someday as I hear they’re very good. My aunt tells stories of her grandmother frying them and apparently they squirm when they hit the pan even though they’re dead.
      I think we talked once before about that guy Ray who was on the show Dirty Jobs. I wonder if he's still in business? I remember rafting down there and having to watch out for the old eel weirs.

        I know who you’re referencing, Ray Turner from the show “Filthy Riches”. Interesting guy from what I’ve read on the ‘net. I should look him up and see if he’s still at it. The Kid actually had a ball game down there a few weeks back and I’d thought about it then but we didn’t have time to go looking before the game started.

          Didn’t know that, my sister in law wants to go gigging again so if it works out maybe I’ll see for myself.

              There used to be lampreys around the Great Lakes and places like Oneida Lake in NY. The State poisoned the hatch streams with a chemical that acted like birth control but did not affect other life. Now there is no evidence on the fish of any eel attachments.

                The thing with the Great Lakes and lampreys was the invasive sea lamprey got into the lakes. So a lot got killed but they still have a problem with them
                They try killing them and so do the native have to get hit hard to.
