Crappie Fishing And Grandkids
Getting to know Crappie:
The Crappie (Pomoxis) is believed to be native to the eastern United States and Canada. Due to wide transportation populations of Crappie exist in all of the 48 contiguous states today, making them a very popular North American game fish.
The average Crappie weighs between 1/2 and 1 pound and measures 5-12 inches. They are capable of growing much larger. The largest Crappie ever caught weighed 6 pounds.
They are very social fish and form schools to live in.
Crappie spawn between May and June. During this time the male will make an indented nest on the floor of shallow water. The female will then lay between 5,000 and 60,000 eggs. The eggs take approximately 2-5 days to hatch. Crappie are fertile breeders and will, if not controlled, overpopulate small bodies of water very quickly. (Wikipedia)
Let's take a look at what our grandchildren are doing to help control the crappie population.
Many years ago my wife, Thelma, and our Granddaughter, Danielle, fished every afternoon in our pound. At that time we had no Crappie, but a large population on bass:

I will never forget one afternoon Danielle was catching one bass after another on her cane pole. All of a sudden she pulls in a large turtle. She immediately threw down her poll and started crying.
Memories that will last a lifetime!
Today Danielle's daughter, Delilah, watches as big brother Briley lands a turtle:

And NO!   Delilah did not cry.
Let's get serious about Crappie fishing. Danielle and family.
Danielle and family live in Latexo, Texas; they travel to Frankston to Crappie fish. To say they are serious about Crappies would be an under-statement.

Extreme fun to catch and that's not all. Crappie's pure, flaky, white flesh has earned them the reputation among anglers as the finest tasting freshwater fish:

Danielle, and husband Brandy, are experts at controlling the population:




Delilah is so proud of big brother Braxton's catch:

Delilah shows them how it's done:


Think the END OF DAY is the END of fun?
Think Again:

One of the greatest thrills of life is watching our Grandchildren doing the things that we have been doing for so many years.
'Let's take a look at what our grandchildren are doing to help control the crappie population.'
And that's plenty!
Thanks to my wife, Thelma, for giving us Danielle. Thanks Danielle & Brandy for giving us our great grandchildren, Braxton, Briley, and Delilah.


Please share your 'Memories that will last a lifetime!'
