Good job! Crappie ( white perch) are some fine eating for sure. I've been catching some nice bluegill and shellcracker the past 2 weeks.

Looks like a good time. I'm mostly a musky and northern pike guy myself but I dabble in walleye and bass as well.

I work with trout and their habitat all week. But when it comes to fishing on the weekends, it's crappie, bluegills, perch. Hook and cook not catch and release.
