It isn’t always difficult to catch a mess of fish on Crooked Creek. In fact, sometimes it can be quite simple.

I have a Honey Hole about 200 yards up the creek that I fish on a regular basis. To avoid the sun, I tie up on one side in the mornings and then in the afternoons I tie up on the other side. But I basically throw to the same area from either side.

Many afternoons I sit and talk to Max. We talk about our blessings and on occasion we are interrupted by a Channel Cat or a Bream. Quite often our time is spent in simple reflection.

But this afternoon was different. Simple yes, but different. In a bit over an hour I landed a mess of Cats as well as a personal best Shellcracker!

How simple was it? I thought you’d never ask…

My bait was some fresh worms that I purchased earlier this afternoon.

Image

My tackle consisted of one of my Grandson’s Ninja Turtle Poles beefed up with a Zebco Classic reel.

Image

I fished a very small hook about 4 feet under a weighted float.

Image

Our snacks consisted of a couple of packs of peanut Butter Crackers and some fresh, cool water.

What a great afternoon! As I paddled home I couldn’t help but think that it isn’t always difficult to catch a mess of fish on Crooked Creek. In fact, sometimes it can be quite simple.

OlCaptain.....Well, you went out and caught a couple of suppers by the looks of that mess of cleaned fish!! Simple and effective!!

Greg.....I "think" that those panfish are actually White Crappie, but not positive. My Florida Fish ID book only shows black crappies but it does say that White Crappies are seldom found in Fla.....and the Ol' Captain lives in central Georgia....slightly NE of Macon and just south of I-20, and I think that Crooked Creek that he lives on actually flows into Lake Sinclair.
The markings on the black crappie are much darker and form broken irregular lines and the fins are darker too.
Not positive, but I think those are White Crappie...and we can call them panfish or bream and be correct!! :salute:
