That’s a good looking crappie! From what did you carve it? It almost looks like pine that you glued up? You really did a super job—looks good enough to eat!

That reminds us of a story about a crappie . . . Our grandson who was about 14 came to spend some time with us. We were fishing in the lake above the dam and he went to fish the stream below the dam across the road. A while later he came running over with a very large fish (for the Wisconsin lake/stream we were fishing) and wanted to know if he could keep it. We weren’t sure what it was; we thought it might be a crappie but it was just too big since we had never caught one which was more than 8 or 10 inches. This one was quite black and we usually catch white crappies. But we finally relented and let him keep it and thought if it was something that was too small to keep, we would just end up paying the fine if we were caught. When we got home we examined it more closely and pulled out more photos of fish and determined it was indeed a black crappie!

Your fish just keep getting better and better. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. I hope you made the mouth out of balsa wood so that when I set the hook the mouth rips out just like on a real crappie.

Boy he brings back memories, and all good, the crappie is what our great grand parents meant by pan-fish !
