Nice Crappie

Recommended Posts

kanasbassfisher08 and I were chasing bass last Friday and doing pretty good pitching beavers at trees in 1-6 feet of water. I pulled my bait over a limb and had several good thumps but none that held onto it. I had a feeling what it was so I dropped a 3" power minnow next to the tree and got a thump almost immediately and swung in a big crappie, 11 more just like it followed. Didn't measure it but a Plano 3700 box is 14x9 inches for a size reference. All released to bite again another day.

Nice fish Clayton! I would have been tempted to take some home and have a fish fry. :)

I almost tossed them in the livewell for whichever one of my buddies wanted to come get them when I got home, but decided against it. I don't eat fish and Chris didn't feel like filleting them so back they went. Only allowed to keep 5 a person over 12" on this lake but 10 14" crappie is a pretty good mess of fish.

In the places that I crappie fish, if you had a 100 fish day, you would be lucky to get one that size. I can't imagine what the outlier of that class of fish would be! Go catch the world record nuke crappie

Great catch.

10 14" crappies would be something to get real excited about around here. Iv`e fished more for them this year because all of my usual spots iced up.
