    Thank you guys! I live in Vermont, which isn't known as a crappie state, but we do have a few spots where they can be caught. Some here call them calico bass.

    As a kid I used to read fishing magazines about crappies, but never saw one until I was 15, and that one somebody else caught. Bluegills were everyday stuff, but crappies were exotic! When I was a kid, every summer my folks would ship us off for 6 weeks to New Orleans to stay with my grandparents -- and that was fishing heaven for me. But we always wen salt water fishing for specks, redfish, and flounder. Well croakers, too.

    I wished I could catch all the fascinating southern fish I read or my grandpa earl talked about -- freshwater cats, gar, tschoupique (bowfin), and and sacolait. But well I couldn't complain fishing the brine either.

    Fast forward about 60 years and I'm here in Vermont shore fishing next to a guy and he pulls in a crappie. Whoaaa! Thery're here? I had a kid's decade reading about those, so you can bet I came back with small jigs loaded for bear. Ever since, I have caught many crappie up here, but never have lost the thrill!

    The boat I just built was made with crappie in mind, after a previous year fishing from a kayak. It's everything I missed in the kayak, stability, the ability to move around in the boat, more space, more weight capacity, faster, and it weighs half as much, and lives on top of my car all summer long, ready to launch anywhere. I'm going to keep fishing for crappie as long as I ever fish. Not saying I mind catching a 34" northern, a 17" smallie, a 20" largie, which happened last year, or even white perch and trout. But given my druthers, there's still that old kid-attraction about crappie fishing that keeps me rowing out to find them.

    Glad to be here among other guys and gals who like these scrappy little fishfry contestants, and who aren't afraid to use 4 pound line!
