Crappie Time!

Despite the name of this blog, I love catching anything that swims!  In this part of NC, the largemouth bass is King and the most sought after species.  I do enjoy going after crappie and bluegill at this time of year.
Last week we went to a small pond in search of some of these small and fiesty fish!  My son caught this nice crappie in his very first kayak fishing trip.  I was more excited than he was!  I caught about 6 and had fun watching my boy paddle around, he did great.  We used some 1/8 oz Roadrunners and small in-line spinners, both favorites of panfish.  Another fun time!


  1. Catch'n or just fish'n...always fun.
