    Syed the Egyptian makes fish soup from the small fish that I gave him. He said that I am the only American that ever gave him fish. I returned the next day and caught and released 4 10” to 11” black crappies, 3 pickerel to 17.5” and 2 bluegills to 8.5”. Most of the people that I meet in my fishing spots in NJ FF64A3B4-5751-4FB5-B5B1-81644DB7FB54.jpeg B807CAE3-81D3-401C-A993-6BF234A23F43.jpeg D54A276F-99FC-489B-9047-CD9F80A83D44.jpeg 67E25209-1340-4C2C-BA3E-E71C2B93D8DB.jpeg are foreign born. I usually catch and release but occasionally give away fish when people ask for some. I saw fish kills in four of my fishing spots over the years. Thousands of dead and wasted fish were there. It may be better to catch and give them away to poor people before they die in the next fish kill.
