    Jerry, of all the fish I have caught a speck is as good as it gets to me. Those were some I caught over at my place at Lake Eufaula.

    I think it was a little over 17 inches and weighed a little over 3 pounds. Years ago I was fishing a bass tournament at Lake San Antonio in California and caught one 5 lbs 1 oz. I was going to have it mounted but I didn't tell my camping buddy and he cooked it for dinner for us. It's funny now but wasn't then. Jackie B.

    If you keep them in the same cooler as the fish they taste alright.

    Pheasantmaster, I wish I could but I am not able to stay away right now. My mother has alsheimers and I have to get and set her medicine up, as well as do her shopping. She can still use a microwave but she is not allowed to cook on a stove. She is doing real good with the medicine she's own but I have to keep a check on her. I saw where you were going to the grand and getting a little fishing in. Hope you shoot well and catch some good fish. I look forward to going one day. Jackie B.

    Those bream are no problem to clean. Remove the scales with a table spoon, remove heads, gut, dip in egg, roll in corn meal and drop in hot grease until it floats.

    Dad once had a basket he pulled slowly behind the boat on the way in. The thing removed the scales from bream and crappy to the point the fish were not even slick when removed.

    Wow, those fish look like what we use for bait here in N. Ca. Just teasing. I have not caught crappie in many years...used to bounce a 1/8oz yellow tail/red head jig off the bottom. But my all time favorite bass killer was a visit to the local feed store, get a dozen or so goldfish...
