99% of the time I am chasin' crappies. I also fish for walleyes occasionally, but not very often.

These pics are from a month ago. First one is 53 keepers (caught over 80 that day). Second one is 34 keepers (caught over 60). Third one is 83 keepers (caught over 120). Total was 170 keepers with over 250 fish caught in the 3 days.

Good point. You can keep the crappies. I'll take 2 18" walleye any day!!
Ha,ha,ha...so many are missing the boat you apparently included. A sweet crappie fillet makes an eye take a back seat any day imo!

High Tech...what did you nail all beautiful slabs on??

Definitely a labor of love. I actually enjoy filleting. I use an electric fillet knife, so it doesn't take that long at all to do a bunch. We eat them at least once a week, about 30-35 fillets per meal and I have enough to get us through until spring.

A little bit of info from filleting the ones from yesterday. Only one had eggs. Up until a couple of weeks ago, a lot of them were loaded with eggs. Not this time though.

Nice mess of feesh. I'll take crappie and gills over walleye any day. They not only taste better, they freeze better too.
