So i want to hear what the biggest crappie yall have caught and what did you caught it on?

Mine is prolly 12" and i caught it on a live minnow. Caught it in a lot of christmas trees. Hope that all of you ppl have caught bigger ones than i have or you need to fish for something else.

The largest one I have caught was a 2.25# on Reelfoot last March and I have caught a few 2# fish here in California. Caught all mine on a Horsehead jig with a charteuse body on it.

My biggest Black Speck was this season, so far 13 inches. My fishing buddy caught one this season 14 inches. Both were caught on 1/32 oz. white and chartreuse jigs tipped with live minnows four feet below a float.

my "biggest" Crappie came on minnows .... Barkley Lake, Spring spawn, early/mid 1970's, 10ft jigpole/17lb test Cortland braid/minnow/bobber, around Buck Bushes ... just a ounce or two shy of 3lbs.
I've caught many 2 to 2.75lb Crappie on jigs, Roadrunners, and live bait (minnows, Shad, Brook Silversides). I'm still in the hunt for that 3lb Slabzilla !!

I was with my dad when he caught a 3.5 lber on a spinnerbait at lake Sardis back in the 80's. I could have died when he turned it loose.:eek:

16" caught in Green River in December of 1999 or so. Don't know how much it weighed but it sure was good eating :D Caught it on a Pink Sparkle BPS 1.5" tube doing the "countdown" method.

Funny thing is the largest crappie I've ever caught was when I was 11 or 12. Too bad I never weighed it. It was a 19 inch black crappie full of eggs. I've caught many 3lb+ crappies since then, but its been about 8 yrs since I got one of those. I plan on breaking my record this summer. I'll be spending the summer fishing on Watts Bar. I was just there, but didn't have a boat for that trip. Fished from shore a few times and only got one crappie. It was 12 inches, but i caught several nice smallies. The largest of those was 5lb 12oz.
