That's what I thought it was (and what my wife thought she hooked). The youngest and I are actually home recovering today, when I saw the picture I thought they had a nice sized bass, but noticed the head was a bit wrong. Figured it was a catfish of some sort and my daughter was covering the whiskers. As big a crappie as I've ever seen.

Wife made some gumbo out of the other crappie and blue gill we've caught this summer, yum.

Love the pictures Packrat! I dont have kids but I take my nephew out every other weekend. I get almost as much enjoyment out of watching him catch fish as when I do...... almost!

Another day another lake - nothing big biting today; caught a few mid-size bluegill in the creek:

   

a bit of extra adventure today though:

She's becoming quite the expert. The bass and crappie weren't biting so she suggested we go to the creek for some bluegill just to get some action. Second cast she found the school and we slayed them for a couple hours. She caught 7 and I caught 1 - and I've been hearing about ever since. She and mom are heading out bass - and hopefully that big muskie - tomorrow.

^ Nice... The only fishing I will be doing for at least 5 months will be in a shanty with an auger and a saw to cut the ice

Remember to tie a rope to your auger and lash it to something. The very definition of a sinking feeling when it breaks through the ice and slips out of your numb fingers.

What weird looking fishes you have around there  :P

I used to fish a lot when I was a kid. Now i only do it occasionally if I have the chance to go north to my homeland on summer holidays. We use to spend evenings fishing in family. But never in a river. Always in the sea. Nicer looking swimning bugs there.

Most likely get our salt water licences this spring. Looking forward to some clamming.

You cannot find clams in beaches in Northern Spain anymore. Only in protected areas. Mussels at most... But not recommended to eat them unless fully depurated.
