    That's one of the reasons I don't fish the bay...every time I go up there I see guys hauling sleds full of 7" crappie and 5" gills and perch thinking they've found the motherlode.  I know it's legal, but it still bothers me.  It also happens at other places as well, but it seems worse on PI.

    bums me out to see that! I rarely keep fish and if I do it is a meal or two and that is it!    How about those 9 inch crappies?

    Nothing wrong with a 9" crappie. The black ones at shenango have some thick fillets on them. The white ones are a lot thinner tho. The white ones need to be a little bigger for me to keep.
