This is NO Crappie "Crawpie".

This is a picture of the BIG Crappie that my dad caught. It was 15 inches long. This is the same fish that Dad held a soda can up with so you could see how big it was. He caught a bunch of small ones and only brought home a 10", an 11", a 13", and the 15" ones. I had dad clean, and mom freeze them for when we go to Lori's house to catch TROUT. Then we will have a FISH FRY with.... HUSH PUPPIES!!! HEHEHEHE

This is ME... doing some of my very much hard SHORE PATROL WORK. I help the Rangers out with this stuff. That's why they like me... well that and beclaws we help with the Luau in August.

These are two of the Ranger Guys that are my furends. They stopped to talk to me. They wouldn't let me get in their boat though. I don't know why. I WANTED to. It can go very much faster than my pontoon boat goes. Then they ate some of my mom's cookies and had to go check on people to arrest and stuff like that which they do.

This is the BOW of my boat... see... it still isn't very clean yet. Mom needs to get down and Swab the decks. And this is my slip number 29... I wanted 87 butt that number is at another marina across the lake. BAH!!!

Some of you had questions yesterday. NO... YOU don't have to call me Cap'n Frankie, unless you want to, JUST the two leggers who ever go on my boat have to call me that name.
NO... Thank Dogness... mom was not Nakkie after she gave away the shirt from her back. She had on a Tee Shirt from the Peabody Hotel, Memphis, TN. Whew.

YES>>> I really do have my very much own Life Vest. I only have to wear it when we have company on the boat. Even though I don't like to really get out and SWIM, I can do it. I just prefer to go in up to when I start to float. I don't like that floaty feeling.

It was only 70 degrees on Wed. and yesterday it was 73. The water is very much cold yet. Mom didn't take the flasher thingy on Wed. beclaws the boat was still all dirty from the winter. I surely am glad that she took it YESTERDAY though. It takes 20 mins. to get from Jennifer Jeep's garage house to my boat slip. It just seems like 87 HOURS to me.

Even though it looks like the word Crappy... that isn't how you say this fishes name. You have to say it like this..... craw pee . Butt it is spelled like this Crappie. And I can tell you for a fact that Crappies do NOT taste Crappy. hehehe PeeS... I will be at my boat all day again today!!! YEAH!!! Mom says to tell you that we ususally stay for about eight hours. It seems like about 87 seconds to me though. I LOVE to go and HATE to come home.

Holy Cow... you will NOT believe this... I just found out that I WON Mayzie and Ranger's GABE Pressie Prize!!! They are going to make a super Pawnation to Mona's DROH group for me. Is this not the grrrreatest???
AND... did you hear about Puddles. She got a Heartguard thingy STUCK IN HER THROAT!! How scary is that??? I am sooo glad that mom switched me over to Interceptor which is a very easy to take Pill. B U T T... there's MORE... Bobo and Mollie Jo just told about a NEWER heartworm pill that even does MORE stuff and is CHEAPER..Inverhart MAX is its name. You should ask your (shiver) VET about this.

So are you going to hang your fish on the wall? I hear some people do that....I would think it would stink after awhile....

Hello Cap'n Frankie! Cap'n Ripley wants to know if he can come with you on your boat. He promises not to commandeer it or anything - whatever that means.

I'm so very much glad that you're so Most Happy abouts winning my GABE pressie! Mom is planning on taking care of all that stuffs this weekend. I will make sure and keep an eye on her cuz sometimes she forgets stuff.

My mom also says that when she was growing up, they caught a lot of crappie but most of 'em weren't nearly as big as that one your dad caught!

Thanks for telling me about Puddles. I ran right over there as soon as I heard.

Wiggles & Wags,

Aho Cap'n Frankie,

What a great crappie your Dad caught - it will surely make some awesome hush puppies. Hope the thunder doesn't spoil your day at sea - our Thunder said he wouldn't want that to happen.

Have a great weekend.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Hey, if that is a craw pee fish then why is it spelled crappy anyway? You need to be deputized so you can ride on that fast boat.


Hannalei said...

the booker man said...

i totally dig hush puppies, mr. frankie! are you gonna fry 'em up? you sure are super good at patrolling the shore, so i bet you'd make a good fryer, too. :)

Capn' Frankie the shore patroler. Huh! Suits you, you curious furiend. I wish I saw the cutest life vests the other day and crossed my paws that my mom wouldn't see them. She didn't. As for you, I'm glad you're being so safe.
