Re: Crappie Anyone?

I don't know what it weighed but it's 17" long and a snuff can fit snugly in its mouth. I caught him on a buzz bait and I thought it was another three or four pound large mouth. When it surfaced the water my brother liked to have turned the boat over trying to grab ahold of it. He was screaming "Don't let him get away, don't let it come off, that's the biggest crappie you'll ever catch!" I looked down and sure enough, it was the biggest crappie I'd ever caught or even saw in person.

He's going on the wall!

Re: Crappie Anyone?

I've caught some good sized crappies before, but that is a beast! Good catch!

Re: Crappie Anyone?

I've caught some slab crappie before, 17-19", but that thing looks like she's got some shoulders on her. That's probably a true 3 pounder, which is rare even with the crappie we have around here. I'll have to ask my dad to find some of his old snag fishing picks from back in the day, there's one pic of a 2 car carport covered with newspaper and crappie lined up in rows covering the whole damn thing (***snag fishing was legal in season back then****).

Re: Crappie Anyone?

Are you sure thats not a large mouth bass wearing a crappie suit? Nice catch and good size on that crappie.
Andy: where did you go for walleye? I didn't think they had those in NM. Alittle warm for them isn't it? Smile. I'm going for smallies and walleye up in Lake Erie at the end of this month. I'm not really counting on the walleyes because it's getting alittle late for them but the small mouths oughta be sweet...SmokeRolls
