I used to catch a lot of crappie and bluegill (and sunfish) as a kid in Wisconsin. My aunt would fry them up and they were really great. Thanks for the memories.
Your comments remind me of when I shocked my little girls (years ago), who I almost never cussed in front of, when we pulled up for the tour at Hoover Dam and I asked the attendant after he told me $5 for parking "That's ridiculous, how much is the dam tour?" Of course he had heard it before, and my girls quickly started asking every dam question they could think of.
