  • Women, children and crappie

    In so many ways crappie fishing either builds or reveals character- and I think this is especially true when we are teaching women and children to respond to the thump in the appropriate manner ( try to break the fishes neck). Same goes with reacting to a bobber or to line movement etc.. Somehow when I intro a buddy to crappie fishing and I watch him sleep thru a bite it's funny but when my wife does the same- it's character building . When our kids were small I didn't have a lot of time for fishing but I really wanted them to love it so I hired a guide once or twice each summer to insure success for them on the water. Most of those guides I really admired for their patience with my kids even when a fish ran sideways thru 4-5 drop shot rigs! Our favorite was Melvin Underhill on Eufaula who loaded his pontoon with kids, Zebco 33's and minnows every July and helped us catch hundreds of crappie and SB in 40fow. He told stories, gave my kids train whistles and untangled lines with perfect patience. I miss Mr. Underhill and whatever I tipped him it wasn't enuf. So when I see guys post pictures of women and children I often think about the fun and frustration and love that those pictures represent and I know that the posters didn't get to fish near as much as the postees on that day! But I also know that there are few things more gratifying than teaching. I really enjoy the pics that guides, husbands, fathers and Grandfathers post and of course Ledge is kind of a hero that way. So I'm hoping that others will post more of the same on this family site. This one is from yesterday when Crappie Cooker and I caught 54 in about 3 hours. Her hook set is getting better and her coconut crappie is perfected.

      Coconut crappie sounds tasty. I enjoyed the article, but I gotta tell you, some of us women didn't have to be taught to fish by our hubbies.
