    Well with the country in chaos it is nice to be able to slip out back on a nightly basis and put a hurtin on some fish. The kiddos and I have been hammering the crappies and best part about is rarely do you catch one under 10"

    3 year old - she likes holding them more than catching them

    Those are some good fish. No better way to hang out with the kids. I need to get my boat ready to go.

    I guessed 2lbs maybe a little more. Wish I had a scale. Didn’t even have my camera that day, luckily one of the guys that joins us some evenings saw me catch it and walked down and took a pic

    We caught a few at our pond a few weeks ago, we kept a few for a meal (14-16 inches) 2.1lbs was the heaviest. I know they are all different due to how thick they are. Either way them big ones are a blast! My lil guy loves it![​IMG][​IMG]

    Not near as big as some of you guys but I got my girls out yesterday. They were all 10 to 12 inches, but they were one after another. Dad caught a couple pretty nice bass as well. This pond is on a chunk of ground I farm. Resized_20200514_113049.jpeg Resized_20200514_110352.jpeg Resized_20200514_155424.jpeg Resized_20200514_145500.jpeg
