The fishing was slow at first but as we got going, and Ron entertained us with a sampling of his Karaoke favorites, his singing soon pulled the fish in.

The weather was crappy (sorry), 20 degrees and snowy with a cold wind blowing, but Ron wasn't going to let that keep him down, he was there to be a part of our quest and help us out with a couple of species of fish.

One of the fun things about crappie fishing is that it's not at all crappy, it's loads of fun. These fish school and on a good day you can catch dozens of these pretty fish. Big crappies are called slabs and in some places these are a prized game fish, as evidenced by Wisconsin's Crappie-a-thon. The NH record crappie was caught in the Bellamy 2 lbs. 12.8 oz.
Our fish was no slab, and would be called a dink, but rules are rules and we had to eat this fish! Maybe we'll get the record for eating the smallest fish.
