I had heard reports in the last 2-3 years but never seen one. I caught two last summer. One small one netting minnows, then a 10"'er in August. I just caught another last night. 11 inches. Neighbor caught 4-5 between last year and this weekend, all big slabs.

I guess they're established...

Are you guys actually targeting them or are they “by-catch”?

Incidentals. I caught the 1st one last year trolling a spinner rig.

I may try targeting them, just to see what happens.

Good and maybe bad. I remember hearing some folks believing that the crappie invasion into Lake Scugog contributed to the decline in the walleyes in that lake (use to be a great walleye fishery and now, all closed up). Let's hope for the best (it is a big lake so maybe different outcomes).
