I was told that years ago Ernest Paty started marking some of the crappie he caught before releasing them.
He did this on all of the lakes he fished which is a whole bunch of lakes.
He used a permanent "FISH MARKER". Those fish started reproducing and their offspring had that permanent
FISH MARK on them and thus was born the Mohawk Crappie that we have in our lakes today.
