Caught our second Mohawk in a week. Those missing chromosomes seem to make them more feisty. Almost did not get this bad boy in the boat.

:Rofl yeah, those "experts" can say what they will about a Blacknose not being any more "feisty" than a regular Black Crappie, but MY experiences with them says otherwise !!

First and only Crappie that I've ever had jump clear out of the water (several occasions) and one even jumped clear across the bow of the boat (Tracker TX17) right after I set the hook on it. Crazy thing cleared the opposite side of the boat by a good 4ft before spashing down !! :yikes

That is a very cool looking fish. Are you going to have it mounted?

Never thought of that. Both of these are filets now.

Haha. Well, I guess it's a little late then. What did you catch it on?

Pretty fish.......I get a lot of black nose. They do seem to fight harder than other crappie. In the trout river I fish in they are subject to make a couple of jumps when you hook them. The last one I had on my buddy thought I had on a nice white bass the way it was pulling drag on the 2# and UL rod.

Regards

We have been using jigs that Pepop makes. He is from Lake Palestine area. We also are using some new jigs from a young former Marine called Custom Magic Jigs that have long extremely jiggly (sorry) tails. Both coated with Garlic Slabsauce. Chartreuse or white seem to work best right now.

I ketch them pretty often and think what many have already said , they seem to be more spunky and for sure bite harder as well .
I have held to the thought they are a subspecies myself for a long time even though research indicates otherwise .
I know spots where its full of black crappie and there aint a one Mohawk and I know another spot that the only crappie in it are mohawks ?
something about that smells of something aint quite whatever it is they say on them about just a genetic throw back thing on the pigmentation .
nice one bro ...KABOOM

As I understand it Johnny .... they've been stocked in many lakes around the country, they are naturally occurring in many lakes around the country (in at least 22states), and if they crossbreed with a "regular" Black Crappie ... the offspring have a extremely high percentage rate of being born with the black stripe.
