I like catching slabs thats all it is to it. I was born and raised in Alabama and I have caught tons of them down there. I have caught some pretty nice ones here as well since I moved here in 2010. Crappie are one of my favorites among fish to catch and they eat good too. I've fished for them for years and for the most part they never fail to provide an angler with a little grit a heck of a fishing day. God willing I hope to have many more days on the water hauling in a load of slabs !
