Hey all,

I went to Kapowsin last week and caught a couple of crappie and one little rock bass. From the looks of the critter it's got to be tasty. Which leads me to a few questions.

Are they truly good to eat?

How do you catch/target them?

Should I just fish for crappie/bluegill and hope to catch them incidentally?

Any information would be appreciated. I'm not a good enough fisherman to dent the fishery, but do like a good panfish dinner now and then.

Thanx,

randy

put a piece of a worm on a hook and put a split shot 2 feet above your hook and slowly drag in on the bottom you will be more then happy with all the ish you catch

Rock bass are good eating. The biggest I've personally caught was about 1 1/2 lb, and that's huge for a rock bass.

Like any smallish pan fish, the best way to prepare them is to make skinners - head off, cut in towards the spine on both sides of the dorsal and ventral fins, pull the fins out, pull the skin off ... fry in about 1" of bacon grease over an open fire ... mmmmm
