Re: Keeping tiny panfish opinions
My thoughts are they are panfish - they are called panfish for a reason. I've kept my share of small bluegill, crappie, perch, filleted them up and fried them in the pan. They are VERY tasty and they have never gone to waste.
I usually won't keep everything I catch when it comes to panfish, but if I'm on top of a school, I'll keep anything that is worth filleting (I've filleted fish as small as 6 or 7 inches without a problem).
