I saw a pic of a sheephead down at Evert's on P4 this spring that was obnoxiously huge - don't know if the weight was listed on it but what a monster.

I can't imagine an almost 5lb black crappie either. I landed one for a bud that was 18.5" and weighted 3.5lbs and that was stupidly big.

    •   You can feel free to answer this question too if you like. 
    •   So conversely, decreasing the supply of labor increases the compensation for all the participants in that sector, and increases the cost of the products and services they deliver.    
    •   22 hours ago, Big Dave2 said: As a Christian you would rather see human beings starve or live a difficult and dangerous life when there are prosperous jobs sometimes only a few hundred miles away in American cities, just because that person had the misfortune of being born on one side of a political border? Does your God recognize these borders?   That's to bad. Dave's gone off the deep end and now arguing with himself!
    • I like to chop bacon into tiny pieces and add to the hamburger. But of course juicy lucy's are always good too....    
    • One of my better ones up at the lake last summer. Finely diced fresh garlic, finely diced fresh onion, hand full of shredded cheddar cheese, tea spoon Liq smoke, big spoon of Jalapeno mustered all mixed in meat. Put on a toasted onion bun with a slice of cheddar cheese and topped with sautéed morel mushrooms and bacon! At least the burger was 93% fat free!
    • Dumba possibly back tomorrow night. 2-3 more turnovers in our own zone to deal with.
    • Wow, those are over the top, guys!!!   I make all my burglars the same....splash of worcestershire, cracked pepper, bit of seasoned salt, minced onions, and a couple drops of hickory smoke all mixed in. Sometimes mix in some  coarse sharp shredded cheddar....
    • From watching post game interviews, it appears god recognizes and maybe even helps winning sports teams; so it is entirely plausible he recognizes borders.........
    •   thirdeye, that is to die for! No literally, I can feel my veins clogging right now! Lol.   
    • The car charger is great
