The Lake is Calling . . .
I've been down South several times in the past two years, but not for what I really like to do. I haven't fished for crappie in two years. That is way, way too long a time.
Oh, you can catch them here in Illinois where I live. But they tend to run very small -- about the size of your hand or a bit bigger. If they do get bigger ones here, they tend to be on farm ponds. If there is a good crappie lake in Illinois where they run larger, someone let me know.
The other fish I most often catch here are carp and catfish. I don't like carp, and I hate handling catfish because of the horns. Ouch, ouch, and double ouch.
I'd better quit talking about fishing, because I am going to put myself in high dudgeon. I have no prospects of getting away any time soon.
