Whenever I prepare my gear to go fishing, my cat likes to watch me. Not just because there is line involved, but because my tackle makes little clicking sounds I guess. So I make a fishing pole cat toy for play. He likes fishing too! Check out my short video :) Today, I go for pan fish including Bluegill, Yellow Perch and Crappie.

It’s a long holiday weekend, so get out and enjoy!

Crappies are a popular North American game fish in the family of sunfish. They can be sought by recreational fishermen and women all year round, even in the winter time because crappies can be active in the cold, unlike bass which become lethargic. The meat of crappie is quite tasty and flaky for a freshwater fish.

The biggest one I caught this spring was 3 pounds at 17-inches in length which is a really good size, though they can be as heavy as 5 pounds. I did release it, so that it could grow that big, someday. I illustrated the species in celebration of my cute crappie.

The summer has begun. Happy Memorial Day all!
