Those are the fun sized - they’re a great fight and not too big to manage without a net. You’re darn right about the slims though - it’s gross. 
 

I had one grab a hudd fishing in DC several years ago. Never got to see it but between the tooth mark on my hudd and the length of line that had slime on it, it was a beast

That's a rock bass. They're as mean as they are tiny. 

 

Mean?! Lol they’re like swimming turds. Embarrassment to the “bass” family.

Pulled a good striper today. Smashed a spinnerbait from the edge of a dock. Could be a holdover but personally I think it is migratory. It is debatable.

My kids hammered some sunnies Friday and we beer battered um for dinner Saturday.  Nothing my son likes to eat more than fish he caught himself and I love having them help me and see where our food can come from.

Maybe @12poundbass would let you borrow some of his Miller Lite.  That stuff aint much better.  Sort of a "moderator welcoming gift" if you will.

With the regular season closed here, I've been hitting up the driftless region for some fly fishing.  Still learning, but I've managed to get at least one the last few trips.  

 

Luckily flies cost a lot less than lures, as I'd be bankrupt with the amount I've been leaving in the trees.

Spent two days this week checking out the status of the crappie spawn in a local reservoir. Ended up with about 140 fish over the two afternoons. Fish are just hitting the spawning grounds here, but this burst of cooler, wet weather has most holding just outside the spawning areas in 4’-8’ of water. Next good warm spell should start the fireworks ?

Same here.  Shallow, warmer back water areas have them right now.  I went with my parents the last two afternoons on a small lake for 3 hours each day and between the three of us we caught 150+ of them.  Most of them are about palm size, very few big ones.  A few sunfish and perch mixed in.  Constant action.

That's always a blast. I kinda wanna sneak out and try it today but my lady had her gallbladder out yesterday and is hurting. Better stay home and tend to her. Maybe tomorrow if she's doing better.

 Im jealous. I haven’t been on a good crappie bite in a long time. My favorite fish to eat. I catch them every now and then while bass fishing, but when I target them all I end up with is a stringer full of perch and pumpkinseeds.

I'm jealous that you can bass fish.  I can't legally do that yet.  I would rather bass fish than panfish.  Right now crappies are one of the only legal targets until May 13.
