catch fish with a shovel. 2 ways. know how?
I"m not talking about using the shovel as a fishing pole, either. :-)

Ditch diggin is a hard way to get supper. You can make a fish trap with a bunch of little sticks and use it for days, IF you have moving & shallow water.

Smack 'em over the head with the shovel?

Shovel the fish on the bank with the shovel. A lot of fish I have gigged I know I could have shoveled them on the bank. A gig works better but a shovel will do in a pinch.

Steam "Shovel"...

You can scoop em out by the buckets when your shovel holds 10 yards!

yes, you can "slap" the water with the back of the shovel.. long handled round point is the most versatile type. you can trench into the dam of a small pond, draining MOST of it, catching gators, beaver, muskrats, turtles, snakes as they try to flee. leave a foot or so of water, and be ready to trap and shoot cats and dogs and other predators as they come to feast on your fish. can also create a little side stream, off of a main stream, and some fish will enter it. shut if off, and they are trapped.
