Fly Guy and Musky Ben,

If you have a live well drop them in there and then what I do is throw in a bag or two of ice if I don't have a couple two liter bottles of ice to drop in place from the vehicle when I get back to the landing... Keeps the fish cool and seems to firm up the meat on the way home noticeable when cleaning. Throw a bubbler in and u r all set... We also do a lot of cpring and keep enough for a meal but the fly fishing for the Crappies and Bass early and late has been fun with the poppers....

Good luck to all.... MB I've missed your posts hope all is well... Heading north tomorrow to one of your favorites with my Son....

Tight lines to all...

I guess it depends on how bad you want to keep fish and how well you take care of them following their capture... Keeping them on ice following goes along ways in their meat being firm rather than mushy...

I keep reading about people keeping crappies at this time of year. Other than ice fishing and ice out, til end of May I never keep crappie. Dont u find them to be be soft and mush during summer months-esp when they have a yellow tint. This applies to any lake in N/Wi. during the summer months.
