Nice crappies. They look really tasty. I don't think that there is a better fish for the frying pan.

Going tomorrow to a wild trout brook.
I'll be an optimist and say I'll have pictures of brook trout.

I've got cabin fever, so my brother in law suggested Ice fishing, this was our attempt. we managed one small Pike in over fours hours. it was a little cold.

me personally i prefer the bluegills and perch over the crappies, most people would say they taste very similar but i think the gills have a bit firmer meat

I went out on a crappy stretch of water today. At least I got in some casting practice. This weekend I'm headed up to Decorah to spend a couple days in a cabin with my wife. The new 4 wt will see some action. Hopefully I can hook up with my first trout on it.
