Looks like what we call a white bass.

We call them sandbass here but I think all three names apply. They’re not bad eating if you trim the red off the filets. And they fight light crazy. When I was a kid they ran up the creeks to spawn and we’d wear them out on Blakemore Roadrunners. If you want to have a big fish fry and know where to find them, and have a couple buddies that are handy with a filet knife they are your huckleberry since there’s no limit. If you find schools chasing shad they’ll literally bite anything you throw them. Dad and Grandad brought home more than 200 on a couple occasions back in the day when the bite was hot and they got on a big school.

My 87 year old Grandmom informed me this morning at coffee that she was out of fish and I probably needed to get in gear and rectify the situation pronto.
So when we got supper ate and a couple little jobs around the shop done me and my sidekick headed to the pond to gather up a bucket of crappie right quick before dark.

We got enough good sized crappie to make a meal or two for the grandparents but I guess the perch are spawning because we couldn’t keep them off the hook. Must have caught 20 great big ones. They really are beautiful this time of the year. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc] [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc] [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]
Wife asked why we didn’t keep a dozen to scale and eat. I told her we’d all go back tomorrow and get a bucketful if she’d scale and I’d head and gut. Her enthusiasm dwindled rapidly! smile

Making memories that will last their whole lives.
My grandpop was born in 1901. When he was in his late 80's he told me about a fishing trip his father took him on in 1910!

Been a bit since I’ve updated this thread, been too busy fishing.

Wife wanted to go catfish on a Sunday evening so we went to the lake. I usually don’t catfish during the day but it was a school night and we did okay and had fun anyway. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc] [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]
I caught a “swordfish”. As close as we’ll get here anyway
[Linked Image from i.postimg.cc] [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]
We’re still wearing out the Eyes. I caught a limit in an hour and 20 minutes last week plus six sandbass, 3 crappie, and a drum. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]
Had 3 over 20” this go around. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]
Trolled up this net with a nice Smithwick plug broke off in it, score! [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]
The daily double! A first for me. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

Surf and turf yesterday.

Enough crappie for lunch. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]
Two at a time on my crappie rig. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]
Went up the hill at sundown and stunt shot some pigs. Got 4 and about 30 made the brush. Biggest and the littlest in this pic since they died close together. Big one was a barr, don’t know who cut him but he was a big SOB. Used a mix of 55gr Speer SPs, Hornady SPs, and Ballistic Tips cleaning up some partial boxes at the loading bench.

Is crappie (lower case) a generic, catch-all term for panfish? Are the fish in the 1st and 4th photos in the previous post properly identified as Crappies (upper case, proper noun)?

Crappie is a couple of species of Panfish, black and white are the two types I’m aware of though there could be more elsewhere.
Here’s a pair, one white and one black caught on the same jig in the same pond. [Linked Image from i.postimg.cc]

keep making memories with that family. They're as blessed to have you as you are to have them. How far south do you have to go to find a frog that size.?

I hope you don't have snakes around big enough to make a meal of that frog.

Yes sir it is a 930. It’s relegated to trolling duty as it has a very slow retrieve speed and doesn’t cast as smooth or far as newer reels but serves fine for trolling.
It was a good friend of mine’s Grandfather’s reel. I helped the grandson go through all the fishing gear when his grandfather passed and he gave me the old Penn to say thanks. I never met his grandfather but I think he might be glad to know his old reel is getting used.
