For most of humanity's existence, fishing wasn't a sport; it was a means of feeding your family. To see if we would have gotten fat or died of starvation, my son, Joel, and I set out in the marshes around Delacroix, hoping to put a few fish in the box for that evening's meal.

We took no food, and according to our predetermined rules, could eat what we caught only at the next meal.

This is the second installment of the survival series. To view the first video, click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mqfapv-khj4&t=966s

Did you ever feel the pressure of HAVING to produce for a fish fry or a particular meal? Did you thrive on the pressure, or did it make fishing less enjoyable?
