Bucket Biology 101

Here's the latest addition to the pantheon of fish in the Fulton Chain. The bucket biologists are at it again. This was caught on a fast trolled size 2 streamer fly!

CRAP-pie! Huge though, and I am glad to see it is headed for the frying pan. It is amazing what a single individual with a bucket can do to an ecosystem (not that the Fulton Chain was pristine). I don't think there is anything comparable, even a forest fire. REMEMBER LITTLE TUPPER!

I'm almost ashamed to say it, but that was one tasty fish. Never had crappie before. I'm hoping I can find them during icefishing season and open a can of whoop-ass.

Nearest place with crappies is Little long lake down near White Lake so some knob must have brought some up from there.

Interesting... the last time I caught those vermin was also FAST trolling or FAST stripping w/big buggers. Thankfully it was warmwater outside the Blue Line. Some of 'em were 16 inch slabs. Good to eat. Lots of meat.

CW, PH...I guess that this fish and others like it are even more a testament to the nice brookies and landlocks you guys have caught...I just don't get it, never will...Well, thanks for letting us know...
