We've spent the last few days fishing, both at our secret "No Name Lake" and our cottage. At the cottage, we're fishing right off of the dock. Here's some fun photos from the last few days:

With fish that size, have you considered panfrying whole fish rather than filets? :-). Sorry, just love smaller fishes.

We almost always fillet and skin the panfish. Even the biggest fish we get in Texas in the winter, too, actually now that I think about it.

We don't usually get perch at our lake past the end of May, so it's one of the biggest signs of spring that we have for us! The same with crappies- they will be going deep soon, and we won't see them again until next May.

You can dip deep for them perch. Hardest part is knowing where they are. We did that when I was a kid. Grandpa new where they hung out in the summer and after the bluegills were done spawning we'd send crickets and wax worms down on a long line. When you hit the right spot everyone in the boat is hauling up perch and crappie.

I miss fishing, but there is not point in getting a boat until the kids are gone. It's too much work when you are the only one who knows how to start the motor and/or row the thing. And you have to bait all the lines. And take the fish off...

There's hardly time to eat a sandwich and drink a beer!

I love fishing, even though I suck at it. It's great just to be outdoors and near water. Living in the desert, our selection is pretty limited though...

What I usually do with the sunnies (or at least what I used to do when I wasnt all big citified) is clean and scale and then cut a few slits in each side before stuffing with herbs and covering with lemon slices. Couple seconds to a couple minutes on each side usually ends in deliciousness. :-D

I love me some crappies fresh caught and panfried. Reminds me of spending the summers in Wisconsin fishing out of a flat bottom john boat... nothing beats fresh caught! Cheers Yooper, not much to catch in downtown Chicago, except riots and protestors right now (stupid NATO).

That's how we catch crappies- our little john boat in a small no-name lake. It's great fun, and I love crappies!

We caught some more fish today (Bob is still fishing from our dock, catching perch) and are going to have fish fry with mango salsa tomorrow!
