On the very day I decided the be done with Crappie fishing, I caught the slab I dreampt of 3 years ago when I became a crappie fanatic.

3 years ago, (when I was like 12 or something), I decided Crappies were the coolest fish ever. I went to Cabelas, where I outfitted myself with tons of little jigs, I looked up technique and tips on the internet, and eventually got out there. My first Crappie didn't come until I was trolling in a little paddle boat, at 2:00PM. I was so excited, and I decided that if I ever caught a Crappie at least 14", I would mount. That excited kept up for a couple years, until I decided, (two days ago), to be done. Yet on that very day, (45 degree and windy), I caught my dream slab.


14" .....forgot to weigh it...



BTW, during m Crappie craze, I created this account here, and posted exactly 45 times. Then I forgot about it, but remember when I caught the pictured fish.

14" that's my PB Crappie. Definitely a fun catch! So are you mounting it?

Sure am! A guy nearby charges $95 for Crappies...which isn't too bad, and it was a very memorable evening.

BTW, what's "PB crappie"????



....OH I get it!!!! PB = Personal Best!

Wow! I guess that is a steel! ooo smiley This being the first fish I've ever mounted, I don't know the prices.

The taxidermy place is Mille Lacs Taxidermy in Garrison.
It's the same place my dad got his 10 pound Northern mounted 20 some years ago.

Hey crappie kid,

You mind if I grab one of those pics and add it to the pics page? After that, I can add you to the 2009 Trophy Fish Contest...

What say you?
