Yea people tell me crappie are bad ideas for ponds less than 4 acres but everybody in my family keeps saying, "stock crappie, it'd be fun to stock crappie!" And the answer is yes, I like catching crappie too but I also want a good pond. I don't intend on putting catfish in there because they just don't interest me at all really in a pond. Don't get me wrong, I am a catfishing addict but if a guy wants to go catfishing go to the Mississippi, not a pond. The river is the real deal and that's where I believe it separates the boys from the men.
