The end of April will put me three weeks into an attempt to cage raise a couple dozen 2-3" crappie. As water temps continue to warm in my area, I expect by mid to late May cage fouling will warrant transfer of these fish to a new, clean cage. My first time dealing with crappie so I'm looking for opinions as to whether or not I may/will see any negative impacts from handling.

My plan is to net them for transfer.
