Discussion Topic: Would You Like A Miss Crappie?
By Dave Hurteau
From the Rochester Post-Bulletin:
Whether it's Miss Muskie, Miss Sunfish, or Miss Crappie, if you happen to catch a Lakemaid this fishing season, you won't want to throw it back.
While most people . . . have no idea what a Lakemaid is, in this reference, it's a seasonal beer launched by the Rapala fishing lures company and Minnesota's own Schell's Brewery in New Ulm.
The beer was first created last year and due to its success, will be sold for a limited time again this year throughout Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and a few other states. . . .
[A] portion of the proceeds from Lakemaid sales go directly to the International Game Fish Association, to help with conservation efforts and gamefish research.
What do you think, does a Miss Walleye sound refreshing to you?
