Came down to Norfork for a family get together. We headed out to try and catch some crappie which was a complete bust, found some fish on brush piles but couldn’t get them to go. Ending up finding some bluegills still up on beds in the back of coves. Ended up catching quiet a few, made for a good dinner!

I'll take gill fillets over crappie fillets.

No kidding.  

I'd love to know if crappie meat even has any protein in it.    Everybody says they "love it" but it is hands down the most tasteless meat on the planet.    So what they really mean is that they love the stuff they dust it with.

True of most fish. If a fish has any flavor beyond the coating, or sauce,  "it tastes too fishy".

I remember the days of catching them on Gramps farm back in the day, love eating them

My girls got me a Bubba Blade cordless fillet knife for father's day.   It comes with various blades, including a very narrow set that should make cleaning a mess of bluegill a breeze.    Not much thicker than a jigsaw blade.  👍

My girls got me the large regular bubba.  I use it fillet the skin off walleye from Costco and fillet those giant chicken breasts into thirds.  The quality of their products is unmatched.

Yeah I'm definitely impressed.   

Why it came with 2 batteries I'll never know.   You'd have to fillet a whole truckload of fish in order to need that second battery.
