Oh Crappie

The kid in me cannot resist posting this interesting Village Soup article about a fish known as the black crappie (Pomoxis nigromaculatus). Last week a boy caught a black crappie in Norton's Pond in Maine. It was the second individual of that species to be caught in the area within the past year. Maine, which has a strict policy against non-native fish introductions, is offering a $2000 reward for information leading to the conviction of anyone illegally stocking Maine waters with these or other non-native fish.
