I have stated here elsewhere I grew up with an American Indian best friend. We grew up in deep south Arkansas back in the 1960 in Jr. High School with him being the only Indian and me, well I was the biggest kid in school. So we occupied ourselves with tracking mostly the local deer population and anyone that trespassed on the hundreds and hundreds of acres of land that my family owned.
So one day we decided to see if we could catch "fish" using this old partially rusted out bucket. We tied a rope about 100 ft long to it and set it out into the water at the edge of a small pond then walked around the pond to the other side then ran as fast as we could dragging the bucket through the pond. The water in the pond was fairly muddy so guess what; before we wore out we caught 3 small bass and a hand full of bream. So it did work but I'm not sure that we did not expend more energy than could have been gained from the small fish. Note: there has to be a better way.
