Grenada Lake, Mississippi monster slabs

Took a family trip down to Mississippi to get on some big crappie.  Something I’ve been wanting to do for years.  Why have I waited so long?  It was incredible!  We arrived Friday late afternoon for check in and got settled in our cabin.  Went down to the outdoor pavilion called “The Slab Shack” for dinner.  1 inch thick strip steaks, sea salt crusted baked potatoes, coleslaw, grilled asparagus, garlic bread, key lime pie, and home maid pineapple ice cream.

Woke up early next morning for sausage biscuit sandwiches and headed for the water.  Spider rigged till about noon for some monster slabs picking up 28 keepers over 13 inches.  Had sandwiches on the boat and pizza waiting for us back at the slab shack.  Put all the fish on ice for pictures the next day.  Dinner the second night was hand cut pork chops, salad, baked beans, coleslaw, corn and onions, blackberry cobbler and homemade blackberry ice cream.  

Up early again for breakfast down at the Slab Shack of fried ham steaks and biscuits, then on the water by the crack of daylight.  Caught my largest crappie ever of 16 3/4 inches and 31 more in the 14-16 inch range.  Back to the Slab Shack by new to grill burgers and chips for lunch.  Big photo shoot of both boats of family and fish for two days of fishing.  We ended up boating 122 keepers.  After pictures, the guides went to cleaning fish.  They got that dialed in.

Final dinner was smoke ribs, coleslaw, baked beans, bread, pasta salad, cobbler and ice cream.

I will be going again!

Got home a few hours ago and had a lot of fish to vacuum pack.  Left 4 fillets out to try something new.  Cut fillets in 1 1/2 inch squares and placed on greased foil covered baking sheet and lightly seasoned. Cut bacon strips in 1 1/2 inch long sections and covered each piece of crappy.  Put in oven on hi broil just till bacon crisped up. Plated nuggets on a tray lightly covered in lemon juice.  


will be doing this again!

So, did they taste good???

I plan on looking at Enid, Grenada, and Sardis on the way to Mobile next month if that happens.  I have had friends that have caught 3lb plus crappie down there.  I have never been a crappie guy, but my boat is a Crappie Pro, so it may catch some.  Bass has been pretty slow out of it this season.  I have been trying to extend my catching season some.
