Caught on few on Saturday morning with the cool (er) north wind. When it switched and got hot... I left! cheers
I must have hit 20 spots doing some scouting from 6-30' deep. grin



Made some pan-seared (faux) blackened crappie. yum. food






This big girl burped up a 4 inch shad. Like Jerry said, they will eat bigger baits.
They hit my Mr. Fry's in "Black Emerald Shiner" color.





Good luck out there!

Nicely done TE....
How did you keep those fillets from falling apart? I've tried that once & it didn't look anything like those.....

I don't know exactly. cool Some did. I think those might have been the bigger ones. grin I use a really thin lightweight egg turner thingy (don't know what they're called) I guess I lift up the pan and gently slide it under the filets. You're right though, its tough.
I'm going to try real blackened - outside with a super heated cast iron skillet - when it gets cooler. I think if I put enough butter and Paul Prudhomes blackened redfish seasoning on it, that may help hold them together. lol
