Fishing Buddy

127 - Provide an option to reset fish database

I've been using Fishing Buddy for years and have never needed to reset its lua file.

Today I noticed that it was the top memory consumer of all my addons at a whopping 6MB. When I manually deleted the SavedVariables file this dropped down to about 1MB, but of course also nuked all my settings.

99% of this memory bloat (and corresponding load/unload time) is the fish/location database, which I never ever look at or care about - wowhead and other related sites are a faster and more accurate source of information for fishing locations.

I'd like an option (possibly command-line?) to clear those giant databases at will without nuking my settings.
Better yet, an option to never store that information across sessions would also work.

    Of course, you could always just use "FishingAce!", which is all the casting goodness with none of the data collection...

    I will look into not recording fish information at logout. I've also thought about having "preloaded" info derived straight from the external sources -- which would also not "update".
