I didn't have a scale, but this puppy was just a fraction over 18 inches.

I caught him on Friday from our neighborhood dock on Lake Norman in Mooresville, NC. Used a roadrunner jig head with a 1.5" gulp minnow on it, in about 7' of water.

He was released back into the lake, hope I see him again! My son held him for me while I took the picture.

Hope you got all the measurements to have a replica mount made cause that is one dandy of a fish.

Thanks all.

I suspect he was 3lb plus... But I'll never know. He was a fat one though! Considering I've caught fewer than 3 dozen crappie in my life, you could say it was beginners luck. On the other hand, I've been targetting them this spring, and my skills have improved quite a bit.

No, I didn't measure for a replica mount. I'm not a trophy kind of guy. Photos will do fine for me.

Thats a great one for Norman. Caught a couple 16"ers there that wouldnt break 2lb....but with the quality of the fish this year, a 17"er might go 3lbs.

I weighed one when I worked in the baitshop for a guy that was 18" and was 3.25lb. Most lakes that fish would have pushed middle to upper 3lbs
