Goodbye friend, you will be missed.

I am sorry to say that Charlie Kent passed away 11:30 am on Saturday, April 7, 2012.

I had only known Charlie for about 3 years, but I feel like I've known him a lot longer. To me, Charlie was an easy-going, fun loving guy who had integrity. He had a true love for his family and the outdoors. He was a solid crappiei fisherman that did not mind teaching a hopeless, beginner like me how to crappie fish. He loved to take kids fishing and teach them how it should be done. In short, Charlie was the type of man that I looked up to and hope to be one day.

I have a few pictures here that we would like to share of Charlie with you. As you look through these, please remember Charlie's family in your prayers.

I have waited a few days to say something,so I might gather my thoughts about Charlie. Charlie and I have been friends and fishing buddies for several years now and I cannot tell you the sorrow I have from his passing. I will never have a better friend or fishing partner than Mr. Charlie Kent.The love and passion he had for crappie fishingi inspired me when I was with him to fish harder,simply because he was there.The memories of those times together will never be forgotten by me.The love Charlie had for crappie fishingi was only surpassed by the love he had for his family and friends.For me,fishing will never be the same,because I loved that man so much. Good-bye is never a word I could say to such a good friend, so,I,ll close by saying I,ll see you in a little while. Your friend forever,Danny

Charlie Was a good man from what I could tell. I have only been around him a few times but he was always willing to help anyone. He would tell us where and how to catch fish when the others would not. I truly hate to hear about his passing and am thinking about your family Ray.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crank baits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
