I may need to find some shallow spring crappies when the ice goes out now. I like shore lunch a lot. I also like finely crushed Ritz crackers with salt and pepper. I have messed around with a lot of different combos. It is my opinion that fresh fish breaded in whatever you want and fried is going to be tasty. Obviously fried in the cast iron in butter or bacon greaseThumpUp. The key, no matter how you prepare it, is to serve with cold beer!

No doubt, I took the beer as a given. It would be like saying "then eat your fish off of a plate". Unnecessary. ThumpUp

Also, to relate to fly fishing, last spring I slaughtered the crappies one night on a little mylar(?) silver bodied streamer with a rabbit fur tail on it that I have no idea where I got. But there it was in and old two sided tackle box, I tied it on and boy did it work.

LOL LOL

Crappies can be really fun in the spring on small streamers! You may accidentally hook a 5 lb bass from it's bed too.

This was in deep water, they were still suspended, must have been May of last year or even June since the ice didn't go out till then up north. It was a blast though, caught some big crappies that night.

Here's the fly, anyone know what this thing is??
