Scientists can tell how old a fish is by reading the growth rings on the fish scales, a lot like they do with tree rings. 

Casey Photo Contest

Casey caught this dinner plate size black crappie off our dock in Canyon Lake, CA this spring. We think it was about 2 lbs and was his biggest crappie ever. He was using a live shad (he caught himself) on a bobber with a split shot just above the hook. Great fight on ultra light tackle! Casey released it to fight another day.
