I see what you mean, her belly goes all the way to her tail. What did she measure?

I think it's just a White Crappie that is full of eggs ... and FAST growing. She "could" possibly have some Black Crappie in her ... but you'd have to have a DNA test done to be sure. You might be able to tell, without the test, if she has 7 or more dorsal spines (like a Black Crappie).

she's a white loaded with eggs, like most of what we've been catching, but shaped really strange, I should've used the flash, at 11 1/2 inches she was thicker across the back than a 16 inch, 2 lb female also loaded with eggs, and had a "hump back", in the pic it looks like it's part of it's dorsal fin, gotta look close.

I've cought many like this, they tend to be thicker then most crappie. Their very stout and hefty.

FeeshRman on the MS board caught one 3 or 4 weeks ago at one of our FJ tourneys like that, under 18 inches and weighed 3.77, was a pig for sure.
Very nice fesh man, congrats

Hey Josh, what you got there is a fish that always stays in root balls. They grow compact like that so they can maneuver in the tight areas to ambush their pray. I learned this from a biologist when I fount the same build on the fish I was catching on Grand Lake/ St Mary's, OH. The main structure they have on that lake, is to bury themselves in the roots of under cut banks. Here on the Mississippi River, we get similar built fish too. It has been said that those fish built like that here, spend most of their time fighting the current. Hope to meet up with you and Chippy on Reelfoot 4/20 -4/27! Big bites, full baskets, and God's blessings to ya!
