Awesome. Fine eating there. I have planned making a trip to Sardis the last 2 years. Have yet to make it though. Where is a good place to put in and stay?

Man that is a nice catch. Crappie were a bit elusive to me and the only ones I was able to get was from a black guy that sold me 40 lbs of fillets for $40.

And, you do realize it was illegal for you to buy them from him and became a Lacey Act violation when you crossed back into TN?

No I didn't realize that, but I was in TN and brought them back them to TN.

You may have missed the Lacy violation (depending on where they came from), but each filet was a separate violtion of TN law.

LOL... I can't get over the fact that someone would purchase gamefish and then talk about it.

No offense, maybe you didn't know.

Stay safe SCN.

Nice catch. I usually give up crappie fishing after the spring, why I don't know. Where you trolling with bandits or using jigs?

Thanks!

That is one of the main reasons I post on here. I'm much rather help educate a fellow hunter and fisherman than have to prosecute at some point. There are a pile of wildlife laws, and nobody, including me, knows them all.

Well thanks for letting me know the error of my ways. Now that I know it won't happen again.

What about some of the Northern States (Michigan is one I think) where you can purchase walleye in fish markets?

Ain't that the truth. No offense to any of you, but it is not uncommon I get different facts/opposing views from game wardens on the same issues - even you. But, I tend to believe you are the most credible thus far based on what I have read of your posts and I appreciate the help and info.
