    How many would eat Ohio River crappie?

    Just curious, how many of you guys would eat crappie caught the from Ohio River?

    Here in the Louisville pool, there is a nice large population of fat daddy crappie. I've caught some hawgs while bass fishing, and always wondered if maybe those crappie would be okay to eat?

    What's the fishin.com verdict?

    Yes. I eat catfish,white bass,and sauger out of the river. Check your states fish consumption advisory. If I could catch big enough crappie I would eat them too.

    I have eaten them for years, no problems that I know of. They are not bottom feeders.
    Only eat them once or twice a year.

    I read somewhere that you should only eat like 10 lbs a year of fish, at most, from the river due to the unusually high mercury content of the fish. Personally, after seeing what I have seen floating around and up on the banks, hell no.

    Since they are not bottom feeders, i would say, a meal every 2-3 months would be o-k. Besides, we all eat chicken, they eat poo-poo, and have sex with their own mothers!!, and i don't even want to go into what a hog will or won't eat!!! Tr

    Nope.....not any fish from the Ohio. I'm sure a person can eat it for years and be fine but I'm convinced it's harmful. So to each his own but no thanks for me.

    I'll eat sauger and crappie in moderation as mentioned.As far as mercury goes being in Ky. and using coal burning plants to produce energy I'm fairly sure your going to find traces in all bodies of water...including farm ponds, there's just no way around it. Pollution...it's everywhere and I think people would be surprised as to what an ocean going fish deals with.Just my 2cents besides ,I can see much better with my third eye LOL. Chuck
