Found this magazine while cleaning up.
It pains me deeply to say that the crappiemagazine.com website no longer exists. This magazine was in its 13th year but it exists no more. Another victim of the Internet, no doubt. The one thing that this cover does prove is that all magazine headlines adhere to a universal formula. It doesn’t really matter about the topic. “13 ways to get thinner by dinner!” is the same as “7 places you will always find crappie!” I do salute the editors of this magazine for their particularly memorable and lively cover lines, however which made the fishing of crappie seem like the most urgent and exciting passtime ever invented by humans.
Sadly, there are no cartoons in Crappie World that would make this more germane to the topic of this blog, but there was original art, illustrating several tempting recipes. I am sure that there is no one on earth who would not dig into a steaming, crispy fillet of crappie covered in lime-flavored yogurt and exclaim, “My! That is sure sweet…and mellow, too.”
I picked this up at a truck stop in Ohio, I think, back in 2002. Not so long ago! There are wonders everywhere if you will only…look around you.
