Brett learning to tie crappie jigs

Later we will be going crappie fishing,

so Brett wanted to tie his own crappie jig.


Crappie fishing was slow.


Once the crappie turn on,

Brett will need to tie more jigs.

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.
