That's a nice bunch of slabs you got there my friend. It looks like there will be some pretty good meals coming soon.  ##$%#111

Last time I went crappie fishing was an early spring, so cold we wore winter coats, hats and gloves.

Congratulations Buckone1, you know you are suppose to cook those first before eating  --099-780.  Quick question...are you cooking those whole?  I have never had them other than filleted.

We always cook ours heads off and skin on. It seems you loose some flavor if you filet them. Besides the tails are crunchy good too! ##$%#111

That's how we usually do our bluegill, but have never tried it on crappie.  You just gave me something new to try this year, thanks!
