Here’s today’s home schooling lesson about crappie fishing.
It’s amazing! All spring crappie weigh two pounds. Have you noticed that? Let’s go down to the lake and check.
Did you catch any?
“Yep. A bunch of two pounders.”
“Well, all but one. He got away. He weighed nearly three pounds.”
(I forgot to mention that. If a two pound crappie gets away, it weighs almost three pounds.)
Then, there are those that occasionally show up that don’t weigh two pounds. Let’s ask someone else.
Hey how about you. Catch any big ones?
“Naw, but we got some good eaters.”
Ah. Those, just for the record, weigh about a pound apiece, or maybe half a pound. But had they gotten away, they would have been at least two pounds, just to set the record straight. Never, ever, has a one pounder gotten away.
You may go home now. Crappie class is over.
