How to Successfully Crappie Fish Have you ever watched a fishing show and wished you could catch fish just as easily as the professionals? They seem to catch big fish every few minutes, but when you go fishing, you might catch one or two in a few hours! This task is also even more difficult and frustrating when you fish for a specific species of fish, such as crappie, one of the many southern delicacies. Learning to fish is a strenuous task, but with the correct materials and setting, you, too, can be just as great as the fishing experts you see on TV. With the use of a jig pole, a variety of jigs, and a depth finder/trolling motor/boat combination, I will explain how to catch crappie easily and successfully. First, you will need a jig pole specifically used to catch crappie. One brand of jig poles that I recommend is B-n-M; it is a jig pole company known to specifically handle crappies. The jig pole will need to be twelve feet in length. This length is ideal because you will not have to use much fishing line in order to reach a specified depth. The next thing you should do is purchase a variety of jigs (artificial bait) so that you can accommodate the jig with the lake environment (e.g. depth, muddiness, plant-life, etc.). The preferred brand of jigs that I use is from the Bobby Garland Company, for they have the most color variety and their products resemble natural baitfish, i.e. shad and minnows. Two types of jigs I recommend are hair jigs and plastic tube jigs. Hair jigs mimic a baitfish’s slow movement that attracts crappies, and plastic tube jigs look the most realistic. Chartreuse is the preferred color for both hair and plastic tube jigs because not only is it the universal color for crappie preference, it is also proven to work the best in a variety of lakes. Lastly, you will need to obtain the best depth-finder/trolling motor/boat combination for your fishing needs. I listed this material combination last because it is the most

    Cleaning Fish Tank When I was younger I loved going to the doctor’s office.

Years later I now have a fish tank of my own that is a little smaller, and I have had to learn how to take care of it. One of the hardest things to deal with is cleaning the fish tank.

    is a highly admired writer. In her poem, “The Fish,” a reader can enjoy the very specific analysis of a fish. While it may seem confusing, there are certainly multiple ways of possibly interpreting this poem. The poem is a continuous, with no stanzas, description of a fish and also the relationship between her and the fish. While it may be gruesome and overly-descriptive, it leaves many questions for the reader. In Elizabeth Bishop’s poem, “The Fish” she uses similes, adjectives, and imagery to show…

    How fish breathe The water surrounding a fish contains a small percentage of dissolved oxygen. In the surface waters there can be about 5 ml. of oxygen per litre of water. This is much less than the 210 ml. of oxygen per litre of air that we breath, so the fish must use a special system for concentrating the oxygen in the water to meet their physiological needs. Here it comes again, a counter current exchange system, similar to the one we found in the fish's swim bladder and in the tuna's muscles…

    ELIZABETH BISHOP 'S "THE FISH" Elizabeth Bishop is a poet that is often admired for her vivid descriptive poetry. Her interest in reading and writing came early in life as she suffered from several illnesses that caused her to spend many hours alone. (Gale) Many critics admire Bishop 's objectivity "because she was interested in viewing details spontaneously, without imposed rationalizations, in the manner of a naturalist" (Gale). Bishop is also known for writing poems about ordinary experiences…

    How is the fish characterized? Is it simply a weak victim because it “didn’t fight”? Comment on lines 65-76. In what sense has “victory filled up” the boat, given the fact the speaker finally let the fish go? In this poem called “The Fish”, Elizabeth Bishop describes the experience of a man who caught a “tremendous fish” (1). I personally don’t think the fish is characterized as a simple victim. In the poem it describes how the fish didn’t fight to get away which gave the fisherman opportunity…
