View Full Version : 7 fish stringer > 32 lbs

09-08-2009, 08:12 PM
"Alabama River, Montgomery, Alabama, recently has opened a lot of eyes with a tournament stringer of seven fish weighing more than 32 pounds." This is a quote from Ronnie Capps' Top Picks for Slab-Crappie Lakes on page 52 of Cabela's Outfitters Journal October, 2009. I was wondering if anyone else saw this article? This seems unreal for someone to catch 7 fish over 4 lbs each in a season much less in a single tournament.

typo? maybe?

Seven crappie averaging over 4.5 pounds? I'll believe it when I see it.

09-08-2009, 08:21 PM
There's just SOME things I gotta see to believe and this is one of 'em.;)

That was a 2 day total. Not 1 day.

Yeah, it was 14 fish, not 7:

I think Cabela's just got the story wrong.

Bass guys fishing Guntersville had several finish a 4 day tourney with over 100lbs, I think win was 107lbs for 4 days. That's a big average. But 4 1/2 lb crappie? I want to fish that hole!!!

Cool, Just saw my home lake listed as #4!!

09-09-2009, 12:13 PM
Old Ronnie has the lakes listed just about right but the next record will probably come from a private pond or lake.

They had the story correct. It was 32 lbs. in two days 14 fish. That's 2.2 lbs. per fish.

I'd take that for 2 days of fishin!!! Man that had to of been fun. Only problem is everyone is gonna go vacation and fish there and clean out some fish.

The state record in Al is 4lbs 5oz for blacks:rolleyes:

09-09-2009, 04:07 PM
Yea, that was a miscommunication, 2 days makes much more sense

Does anyone have a link to this article?

I have got to see that! I've heard some fish stories in my day, but MAN! I would like to see just one 4 1/2 lbs. That would impress me!

09-10-2009, 02:21 PM
LOL, yeah that was a typo for sure. 14 fish and 32 pouds was impressive enough!!!!

Never in my 60plus years fishing have I heard of crappie weighing 4.5lbs.. Had to be a miss print.

It was a two day tournament, 14 fish. I was at the weigh-in on both days. Lots of nice fish. Met a lot of the tournament folks and pre-fished with several of them. Nice folks. Looking forward to 2010 and the contract with the City of Millbrook has been signed for the 2011 State Championship in the Spring, and National's in the Fall of that year.
