St Pattys weekend, Mama says its time to plant her taters! Mama gets what mama wants! Thats my ONLY chore is about 30 mins on the tractor with the tiller, after that...cold beverages and rip some lips hopefully! The beverages are a given, fish need to cooperate tho!

Also...NO CHARGE to come fish lol! And you dont have to live at least two hours away! Bourbon and Miller Lite are never a bad thing in exchange for wettin' a line or two tho!

I'm bringing my big cooler and a bag of ice for the transfer of lipless fishes from your pond to my freezer.

I'd catch about 20 female blacks when their bellies are swollen with eggs and throw them in there. If they're females its pretty easy to tell them apart, they don't get as dark as the males.

whites have verticle stripes, blacks are randomly speckled

Man that'd be awesome Doug! Just getting back from the cabin, fishing was terrible! Bill came down and gave it a go, no luck...we fished all day today without any luck as well. Water still awfully cold. Gonna give it another shot next weekend if the weather copperates

Can you list the fish hatcheries that are fraudulently selling white crappie as black crappie so we can avoid them?

Thanks
