Crappie Bite is Hot


The lake level is down.

Difficult to get up the creeks.

But low water makes easy fishing in tributaries.


A limit of 25 crappie ready to be filleted.


These fillets will now be seasonal and dip in meal.


Seasoned and ready for the freezer.


Frozen into fish strips.

Ready for the grand-kids.

Sure makes it is to cook fish.

Gman had a good day


It started with an early morning fishing trip for crappie.

He’s learning to stretch those arms when taking a picture.



And then it was time to eat those fresh crappie

Our fish cooking  is simple.

First and most important – cut fillets into small pieces, about size of a finger.

Apply only Tony Chachere Original seasoning


Moving a hog trap to a new location.

Our hog trap is small to prevent catching deer.

And it will catch hogs.


baiting trap with fish carcass


Trigger set, Gman is ready for the hogs.

Notice that we cover the bottom with dirt

and put some brush on top.
