    Default h2ohhh has a Crappie afternoon

    Worked on honey do's all day. Spent the late afternoon catching large numbers of small crappie. Here's the secret pond. It's sweeeet.


    But I did find a few fat mamas.


    This one was 17 inches with a girth of 14! What a football.


    An hour later here they are.



    Good day, great dinner. All fish taken on the old school marabou jig under a weighted float.

    I was using a BPS ultralight so indeed it was. Eating them wasn't too shabby either!

    Very nice! I go back and forth between filleting and cleaning crappie (I just put two cleaned ones in the freezer tonight) because I usually lose too much meat and/or have too many bones in fillets. It looks like you did a really good job of filleting. They are fun on UL; it's mano a fisho...

    A pretty big one. Maybe 15 acres.

    Mookie, I'm sure that 17 inch smallie fought a lot harder than that crappie did though she fought pretty good. I'd have definitely released the smallie too. Most folks know I rarely keep any fish. When I do it's only enough for one meal. I like them fresh.

    That's a Wusthof filet knife. Basically the G Loomis of knives. A gift from my mother one Christmas. It's an absolute scalpel and that's the secret to a filet with little waste. I've owned that knife for 25 years now and it's never been through anything but a fish. Gets sharpened after every use.

    I'd have sent them crappie to lake crisco myself!

    I was hoping to catch a trout today for broiling.
