    Default Crappie eye

    I caught a crappie today, keeper, and when I was unhooking him I pulled his eyeball out on the hook. I left it on there and I seem to get a lot more bites on that jig than my others. Also a lot of taps, maybe brim? After I lost the eyeball it was back to normal so it seemed.

    Maybe next time you should hook your buddy's eye and fish with it. Do you think a human eye would catch a bigger fish?

    Hmmmmmm, may be on to something, here. I did the same thing with a bream eye last fall. caught 7 fish with it before they tore it off, one of them a nice one. worth a follow-up.

    the eye of a crappie, and any other fresh water fish for that matter, contains a jelly like material which contains isolatin-sulfiomercurum. And it is that ISSFC compound that seems to attract the fish. Under lab tests the ISSFC attracted all types of fresh water fish, other than the common suacmal-hipis.
    Hope this helps.

    Ran into this situation about 12 years ago. I was at a 8 hour safety meeting at Engelhard conference center in Gordon,Georgia and we took one hour for lunch. There was a pond we called the research pond out back, and a fellow worker suggested we try to catch some bream off of some bread we found in the kitchen. We did and then he showed me something, he said take the eyeballs out of the sockets of the bream we caught off the bread and use them for bait, so I snatched them out with the hook I was using. We caught bream as fast as it hit the water. We caught a mess of bream off those fish eyeballs and caught catfish from the bream we used as cutbait. Nice little trip for one hour. I was impressed to say the least. Have tried it since and did not work. I guess those bream were really hungry. Goes to show you never know, have to improvise to the situation at hand.

    We do that up here when the perch fishing gets slow.
    Catch a small perch and use his eyes for bait. I'm telling you. It can change a slow day into a fast day at times.
