I recently went to my Crappie Hole and fished at night when I got tired at 3:00 a.m. I crawled up in the boat and went to sleep. What really upst me was when I woke up I had 20 or more dead Crappie floating around me!!!! In Texas most lakes have rules that Crappie under 10 inches have to be thrown back. When you bring them up from 30 plus feet they just cannot right themselves to live. Yes, I know about the air bag etc. that has to be popped so the fish can live to swim another day. It just seems a waist, no one truely carries a needle etc. to pop the air bag and it's time consuming. I did catch 17 keepers to 14 inches.
