Crappie is the second most popular freshwater game fish in the United States behind largemouth bass. (And also that they taste outstanding when dropped in batter, tossed in cornmeal and lightly fried.) While there is no question that people enjoy this delicious catch, there are important variables needed to be taken into account when you are seeking to stock your pond with them.

White crappie has an extremely high reproductive capacity and can overpopulate in a body of water that is not large enough to support their numbers. While there is nothing wrong with them, they are not used in pond stocking or raised commercially.

Black crappie are used exclusively for stocking in smaller lakes or ponds, above two acres, as they are less prolific than the white crappie, but still have great reproductive potential. That being said they too need to be harvested somewhat heavily to keep from overpopulating. Harvesting gives the other fish room to grow into nice slabs for the dinner table.

It is essential that you learn to tie Fishing Knots correctly. Incorrectly tied knots are weak and may break the fishing line, or its loose ends may get entangled with the weeds or your fishing pole. Before we discover various types of knots, let us learn some general good practices of tying good knots.

First, lubricate the knots with saliva or water before pulling them tight; this reduces friction and preserves the strength of the fishing line. Second, pull them as tight as you can, because you don't want any slippages when you have caught your fish. And third, trim the knot ends as close to the knot as possible. This step ensures that your line doesn't get entangled at any unwanted places.

Improved Clinch Knot is used to tie the fishing line with the hook. It is commonly used because it is simple to tie while providing good efficiency; the clinch bow gets stronger as it gets pulled. It can be used with many types of fishing lines and can be attached to clip or an artificial fly besides the hook.
