And get him to catch some nice 12-14 inch Crappies and a kicker Gator

Sorry boys--no flies---1/16 oz jig under a slip bobber ( We'll call a strike indicator)

    I grew up in an area that fall between the South and Southwest. A little of both I guess. Jigs for crappie are almost as popular as minnows down here. I won't judge you. ;) Well that and I've only caught one crappie on a fly and that was a Clouser Minnow.

    What do you do with crappie up there? We fry 'em. O.K., we fry everything that we don't barbecue.

    Caught a ton of those suckers growing up in Northern California. There were three former dredger ponds nearby with smallmouths and crappies. We'd only keep the bigger ones, fillet them, bread them and fry the hell out of 'em. A large crappie fillet is about the size of a Swedish pancake, but with no bones to deal with, they're a real treat. Funny, in the half-dozen years that I was fishing the ponds, I think I caught maybe three smallies, all on live dragonflies.

    They're getting fried for dinner tomorrow----batter mix--fried in oil

    Catch them thru the ice myself during winter. They taste much betterer than summer crappie. True story.

    Fried up in a thin layer of peanut oil.

    Do you like the peanut oil for this??...Last time we used veg oil---house "smelled" for a day---was gonna use canola oil---it's ok---leaves a bit of an aftertaste
  • NZ IndicatorNZ Indicator Senior Member Posts: 9,068 Senior Member
    Canola or Peanut...best taste. I never use vegetable oil.

    Can't tell you the last time we even had veg oil in our house. Peanut, Olive, Canola and coconut oil is all we stock.

    You can even zest 'em up a little and marinate in a small amount of lemon juice and some dill weed.

    Curious that crappie and walleye, two of the best eating fresh water fish are among the least fun to catch - just dead weight, really.

    The largest I've caught was less than half that size.

    Over 20" and walleye put up a pretty good fight. My largest that I've caught is 32" out of Lake Superior. That was a crazy battle getting that thing to the boat.
