East Central Arkansas
When I was cleaning that fish and saw the roe it brought back memories of my dad eating it. I am sure I had tried it but didn't really remember what they were like. He wasn't a fisherman and vary rarely brought fish home that wasn't already cleaned but living hear near the White River and farming in the bottoms he new several commercial fishermen that lived near the farm. Reminds me of a story he would tell. One day while working on the farm he had got some fish from one of the fishermen. He just dumped them in his water cooler he carried. The farm labor was always bad about getting water from our kegs when they would run out. One of the hands had run out of water so he got a big drink from daddy's water keg. He later asked him how that water tasted and the hand replied it was a little fishy tasting.
