Yes i have a lake that i fish with an awesome panfish fishery. Its got the biggest gills, perch, and crappies i ve ever seen. Yes i bread them and fry them. Sumtimes with breadcrumbs and sumtimes with flour. We also grill them and deep fry them too. Their great. In my opinion their the best frshwater fish to eat. U gotta go out and getcha some. Trust me u will love them.:thumbsup:Nice sized fish!! You bread and fry them? I've never eaten any panfish but have always wanted to try one, never caught any so fat!
