Default Off the crappie and on the channel cat

After loading the freezer with crappie this spring we have moved on to channel cat for the summer. A lot of people say eat the little ones but I prefer to eat the bigger ones. If you want good eating catfish you have to remove ALL of the red meat and once you do that on a small fish there is not much left.

Yeah, maybe my favorite once the red meat is removed.

Took my wife out this morning and we caught a limit of crappie then went after some big seeds. The crappie were nice but not monsters. We probably caught between 75 and 100 but let most of the smaller ones less than 10" go. She had a good time.
