Not to be mistaken for Crappy Wisdom, this is an instructional book for catching the small but frisky panfish known as the crappie. This is the first fish I ever caught, on the docks at Clinton Marina with my Uncle Mike. I was just finishing up an essay on him last year so I thought I'd read this to spark the ol' creative juices. But I'm also fishing more again these days, so I went back to the book to glean the wisdom contained therein.

The book itself was written in the late '80s and doesn't seem to have been updated since then; lord knows the pictures haven't. Or maybe these fishermen just haven't changed their clothes since then - perhaps that's what makes them part of the "In-Fisherman" crowd. Anyway, the information on locating crappies (the most important and difficult part of crappie fishing) is sound, reinforcing what I already knew while giving me some new insights into deep-water crappies for the days in the future when maybe I'll have a boat.
