Did some bow fishing over the weekend. Water was almost too murky to shoot shit.

If I knew then what I know now, I would be on a puddle jumper landing in San Pedro, aka: “where the climate suits my clothes”, shortly!

Yes it does.

Mingo caught a shit load of crappie the other day.

They're stocking here heavy this year. I just haven't had the time to wet a line. When I do get a pretty day...seems I always end up doing something else.

I fished off and on throughout the weekend, crappie were pretty damn hungry for Gulp minnows...and even nailed a couple of nice cold water bass. One bass was released, everything else, including the crappie were cooked and eated.

I will post pictures of something. Hopefully it’s a fish, but who knows it could be three empty beer cans...

Just had a storm roll through here. Quite a bit of snow for here, and the sportsman love it. Bad news is after the last several weather patterns , snow , thaw, rain, freeze ,etc. it makes for some very untrustworthy ice conditions. I used to rescue and recover bodies both as a volunteer and as a professional. Be careful out there all you icefishermen! That being said, rescue personnel need realistic training too!

"Anyone fishing down in the Jacksonville, FL area?"

Redfish is slow right know, everything seems slow right now. I heard Wahoo is good but that's a fair hike to the grounds. I think that the fronts that have been coming through have got the fish kinda messed up - hot to cold to rain to hot to cold to rain....

Have seen some nice hauls of Sheepshead off the rocks at Mayport.

Riddle me this; are Smallmouth, Largemouth bass and Crappie eaten? I ask because no one I know eats these. Almost always these 3 are catch and release in my neck of the woods.

What say you all?

I eat all three regularly, crappie in particular. For the bass the smaller ones are much better. 10-14 inchers eat fine.

Crappie...best eat'n fish there is. As for bass...I'll take it or leave it, early in cold water is okay, once the water warms...nah. Perch, bluegills are tasty as hell too. I like my channel cats for meaty fillets, and a few trout every now and then if I don't have to fight the corn kernel commandos....

I’ve never eaten smallmouth, only because I have never killed one.

Like we said before, if you keep them in the 10 to 14 inch range they are quite good, and less likely have to of picked up an heavy metals.

A couple of years ago I had some fresh barracuda. At nearly 3 feet, it was at the top end of the range before they get funky.

In general, if it swims in clean water it is edible.

Anything under 10" is baitfish.

For my beloved Ling Cod I use a 10oz chrome hex bar and two whole squid.

I'd rather eat Roseanne Barr than one of those 30lb catfish you like to chase
