MAYFLOWER (Log Cabin) - Pass the hush puppies, please. That mess of fresh Lake Conway crappie is hot and ready on the table.

Amid all the verbiage of the Mayflower oil spill, the accusations and finger pointing, the question still being asked is, "Are the fish in Lake Conway safe to eat"?

State and federal agencies involved in the incident have said from the outset that no oil reached the main body of the lake and that the fish are not affected.

Most fishermen on the lake agree. They go after the bream, crappie, bass and catfish as they have in the past. And they enjoy them on the dinner table.

Chuck Johnson at Hi-Way Landing in Mayflower said, "Most folks around here are eating the fish. Some aren't. It's an individual choice."
