Crappie Fishing

I got a call from a friend and fellow Conservation Officer Anthony Quarracino last evening asking if I wanted to go crappie fishing Sunday Morning. I'm usually always in the mood for a little fishing. I got up around 7:00 AM to find it was lightly raining. I called Anthony to see if he was still going and he said you bet, just bring your rain suit. So off I went and met him at Raystown Lake around 9:00 AM. We headed out hoping that the rain would let up, but no such luck. We fished for a couple of hours and did manage to catch 6 nice keepers.

Here are the two biggest ones we got. One was just over 14 inches and the other just made 15 inches. These are probably the biggest crappies I have ever caught in my life.

Hopefully we will get a chance to get out some day soon that the weather is a little more cooperative, and not so rainy. Oh by the way, I found out my rain suit leaks a little. It's only 15 years old. Time for a new one.
