We kept 18 HORSES and threw anything under 10 inches long back in to grow up big and beautiful like the others we kept and ate.

Caught them on minnows (shiners) in about 8-foot deep water on slip bobbers, set to about 3 feet deep... caught them right on the dock in the slip!  Lmao

That is my kind of fishing. Where your arms get tired from pulling in all those fish... Do you feel sorry for me?

We probably caught 30+ ... All Crappie.


I had the same shit eating grin on my face too!

We always throw back the females with eggs.  It'd be great if we had more in the future.
Good for you.

Oh absolutely. No Females with eggs were harmed. Always release the egglayers.

I have a video I can't upload (grr...) of the barrel FULL of them flappin and floppin around!

YouTube dude! And put a link to the forum in the info!

He and I can both clean them and filet them in a godawful hurry... Almost no meat left on the carcass.

Crappie is super easy to clean. No need to gut them either.

Leave the carcasses in a small pile on the bank and they are long gone by sunup.

Raccoons do love fish... Same as buzzards... and god only knows what else.


(here is a true fish tale)

When I moved out here the first Spring I prepped to go fishing the next morning and I had a ton of shiners in a minnow bucket with an air bubbler going on my back porch, ready for the crack of dawn foray. Poles all restrung and rigged. Boat ready.

It was still dark and I was having a cup of coffee when I heard a faint sound on the porch so I crept over to the window to look and there was a big fat Raccoon sitting on his fat ass leisurely reaching in and pulling out one after and gobbling them down...

I went out and asked him, "What the fuck are you doing?" He looked at me sort of bewildered and scurried off... There were only 2 shiners left in the whole bucket!

They really are Bandits.

Out my way and @Highlander 's way the Crappie start to spawn around mid May and the spawn peaks sometime near mid June. It's a ballpark figure but quite accurate. Those crappies sure do look darn delicious @Frigg ! I had a similar incident with a Raccoon but it wasn't with my shiners. There's a large river that I love going to for Catfish. I have to put my waders on to get to my spot. It's a deep river but I know it like the back of my penis. I can wade through it and reach the other side with out any light during the night if I have to (and I have before). Some small stretches can be one foot and then suddenly drop to 10, 15, and 30 feet deep. The key is to know how to read the water.

But back to the Raccoon... one summer's day I waded across the river to the other side onto a  very large island (and this river continues behind the island as well, so it's huge) and there I am catching gorgeous fresh channel catfish and I placed them into a bag with ice because prior to this I had a stringer in the water full of channel cats and the fucking snapping turtles ate them all... And there I am in the water drifting my rig through the water and all of a sudden I hear the bag moving, I turn around and I see this fat bastard raccoon stealing my catfish  Chuckle  The fat bastard stole at least 3 or 4 before I had a chance to get back to the bag in time. My fave food is fresh fried channel catfish in cornmeal with a side of potato and onion salad drizzled with some red whine vinegar and olive oil, paprika, salt and pepper.

I've never heard of a "crappie" before.
We call those sunfish and always throw them back unless you're desperate
because they are very bony. Maybe yours are not as bony in the south.
