      Sounds good buddy! I'm pretty sure I saw you out there last year! I remember bc you offered me crappie which is a heck of an offer you don't have many ...more ppl doing that so it stuck with me and I remembered it. We weren't keeping them that day but I will never forget it! And I just might take you up on that I am the same way it's in my blood! I'm at work now but there is nowhere I would rather be than on the water!

      Also the older and larger the crappie the higher percentage of toxins it has. I release all crappie over 12 inches for this reason. Not only does it help preserve ...more the crappie fishery but most importantly those larger fish cut into the amount of fish you can safely consume much more than the smaller 8-10 inch crappie do.

      Congrats nice fish! Just a heads up I see you keeping a lot of fish almost daily.. are you eating all those fish?! Bc the fish consumption advisory for Indiana ...more is two 8 ounce portions of wild caught fish per week. For women and children it is only one 8 ounce portion per week. 2 to 3 nice fillets is 8 ounces and let's be honest most ppl don't eat 2 to 3 crappie fillets shoot I eat 6-8 fillets each time I have a fish fry. Wild caught fish contain mercury and PCBs that build up in your system over time. Eagle creek being in the city has unusually high amounts of mercury and PCBs that is why you don't see a ton of ppl keeping a lot of fish regularly out of that reservoir. Crappie over 9 inches contain especially high levels of toxins in their skin and most ppl only keep crappie that are over 9 inches. Just a heads up bc I see you keeping a ton of fish just want to make sure you were aware of the health risks to you and your family. http://www.eregulations.com/indiana/fishing/fish-consumption/
