Default I had a CRAPPIE day!

That's right gentlemen- the crappies here up north are spawning and in the shallows. We caught a few crappies, a few bluegills, and a few gorgeous pumpkins seeds. Enough for a fish fry. A cold north wind, but a sunny day and a great day to be outside fishing in our jon boat. I saw two mature bald eagles eyeing us up, alot of songbirds, a few cranes and not one other person (besides my HWMO).

Tonight, we're having a crappie dinner and it there are any leftovers we'll have crappie sandwiches for lunch tomorrow. (That's my son's favorite thing- telling his friends his mom made him a crappie sandwich.)

Alright now I'm jealous. All the lakes and rivers around here are flooded so no good fishing here for awhile. Sounds like your weekend is off to a "crappie" start though

Sounds fun! I've been waist deep in 48-56F trout streams for the last couple weeks. I'm looking forward to the opening of Northern Pike season tomorrow!

As a kid we vacationed in Eagle River, WI and I remember catching crappies & bluegills. The adults were always after walleye and muskie, but we ate more crappies than anything else.

Crappie - The original fish chip.

Rook- we had smelt last weekend, as a matter of fact! Walleye season opens on the 15th but I still love panfish the most.
