Went fishing on the Elk river arm of Grand Lake with a buddy friday night, fished some brush with jigs, caught a few. Seemed like they got tired of the jigs so i put a slip bobber on at about 3 feet and sent a minnow on its way to float nice and slow past the outside edge. caught a nice one. Sent another minnow out and Click Click BOOM. Dang i knew i would catch a largemouth.....Oh wait that aint no bass......"Get the net Brad".....fellas this is the biggest crappie this ol boy has ever had the pleasure of catching, he is no world record but what a firecracker. 15 inches, 2 3/4 pounds RIVER CRAPPIE. I could not stop from opening the livewell and looking at it the rest of the night. Just thought i would share it with you all as i know it will be appreciated. 6537565376

Nice fish. How thick was that crappie? A 16 inch crappie will weigh 2 pounds + or - an ounce or two on Truman. At least that is my experience. That 15" fish must have been 3" thick.

I didnt take a girth measurement but he was thick. the other thing i noticed on it that i had not noticed on any other crappie i had ever caught before, was it had a real dark brown racing stripe right down the middle of his back starting between his eyes. As far as 2 3/4 pounds, all i had to weigh him on was my old zebco scale, it said 2 3/4 pounds.....thats my story and im sticking to it :) good enough for me lol. My foot is a size 11 lol

congrat's that is a toad for sure! way to go, did it go in the grease or to the taxidermist... i very well could be wrong but sound's like a blacknose crappie?
