Somebody was wrong a few posts back.  I caught several crappies in channels yesterday.  Ended up keeping 15 for supper.  Only down side was I had a tough time catching any good sized bluegills.  I did catch a bunch of them but mostly dinks.  Nail tail with a waxworm.

A late report. My buddy Steve and I fished for a few hours Sunday morning. Many folks were catching walleye. We managed a few keepers. My buddy Steve's fish was larger but he needs to learn how to hold it out lol! On jig and crawler. We also got a few crappie trolling shad raps in 6 FOW.  As well as a nice cat and a few bass. A fun morning.

Likewise,  caught a 17” Walleye and an 18” Chanel Cat this morning.  Both on the slicker firetiger color 3” flicker shad Jim’s Bait & Tackle recomended just last week.  Fileted them both and cooked up with this recipe.   My brother up from IN said it’s was the best fish he’s had in very long tome.   Both were mighty tasty??

Got out today from about 7:30-12:30 searching for gills.  Found fish in less than 2 fow.  Waxies 8-10” under a float did the trick.  Moved a few times whenever the bite would slow up, but had action all day.

Update:  Never tried Flathead Catfish as table fare.  Kept the 10 lb. fish from previous report based on articles I have read on-line.  Just fried him up and had him for breakfast.  By far the best tasting catfish I have ever eaten.  We are saving some to bake and have with lemon and drawn butter as suggested by many on-line articles.  Can't wait to try.  Needless to say I wont be releasing the smaller ones any more.  Still have a soft spot for the big ones.  Will still keep the big guys and gals swimming.

Good Fishing
