Well here is my favorite crappiei recipe of all time.

Crappie on the Half Shell

Filleti crappie but leave the skin and scales on.
Wash and dry fillets and brush the meat side with butter.
Sprinkle a light coat of Lemon Pepper.
Let stand and marinate for 20 min.
Put on hot Charcoal grill with wood chips. Temp 400
Make sure to place skin side down and do not turn them over.
Cook for about 15 minutes.
Best size fish is the 1.25 lb and better

I am telling you this is now my favorite way to eat crappie. Hard to admit but better than even fried.

We make alot of Crappie Cakes. If you like crab cakes, Crappie cakes, you'll love. Boil your filets in water, salt and liquid crabboil and a couple of lemons, then chill in the fridge over night. Makes your regular crab cake base and then flake the crappiei into the base like you would crab meat. YUMMMMM

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
