Went fishing in central florida several days ago and caught 7 crappie and 2 gills. The largest crappie measured 14.25 inches. Its always such a thrill to catch em on a light flyrod. Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me. All of the fish were caught using a 1.25 inch Mister Twister Exude Nymph (Moss Green/Pearl color) on a thin wire Gamakatsu hook and a sliding bead head weight. The oil in the skillet will be sizzling this weekend.
