My pond management people tell me I need to remove 150#'s of BCP from my 5 acre pond per year to prevent over population. I think we got a little over 100#'s last year.
We are starting this year off pretty well. Last Sunday my guests took 29 and this past Sunday my son and friends took another 36.

We have had this place for going on 7 years and it has always produced copious quantities of BCP. I am only recently getting serious about keeping track of the poundage.

Blue Catfish or Black Crappie? I think Black Crappie are BCP and Blue Catfish are BC on this forum, but I could be wrong.

That's a far amount of crappie T! Sounds like a good thing. Did you mean 29/36 fish or 29/36 pounds?

Steve, Here's the Acronym thread (thanks Theo)...

https://forums.pondboss.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=92442#Post92442

BC = Blue Cat
BCP = Black Crappie


Fish on!,

Pretty good sized crappie


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

What a crappie report.....

Though you probably felt crappie when you wrote it.

That's awesome. How big is your pond? I'm thinking about stocking BCP into my future BC/HSB pond (soon), primarily for BC forage, but I'd take a mess of them like this to eat as well.

jim100, it was crappie humor.


Those who pronounce it as "craw-pee" can't appreciate it. Take my wife...

I say "Crappy" just like its spelled, but apparently I might be wrong?

The word crappie comes from Canadian French crapet “sunfish.” Speakers of English borrowed the word first as crappé [krop-é], pronounced like “crop-ay,” which then spawned the variant croppie [króp-e]. (From a Google search)

Eh, I can live with "Crawpee," as long as they don't call a Bluegill a Brim/Bream. From a former New Yorker that now lives in NC, nothing drives me more crazy than "brim." crazy

What about "perch"? or rather "purch"?

Crawpee crappie or crappy, or sak a lait, as my friend from cajun country calls them, no matter how you say it, thats one super nice mess of fish and some of the best eating,, having to keep their numbers in check by catching and eating that mess is one of the best problems anybody ever had!


All the really good ideas I've ever had came to me while I was milking a cow.
