    Default Question on size.

    Was crappie fishing and caught a 15 and 3/4 inch female full of eggs. Forgot to change battiers in my scale this spring. Any one know the weight of a crappie that size. Released her so don't know.

    If you released her as heavy as you want her to be.

    It's really hard to say. The biggest crappie I've ever caught was 3lb and wasn't but a shade over 15" long. It was river fish and they are short and stocky. She was loaded with eggs and very thick across the back. I've caught a 2.75 and few 2.60s from other lakes and they've been around 16" long. Longest fish I ever caught was probably 16.25" and weighed 2.29, but it was in the winter before she really bulked up too
    Hooking up every chance I get!

    Can tell you a 17" crappie will be right at 3 pound (caught quite a few that size) and have had some about the size of your probably 2 1/4 - 2 1/2 pounds since she's full of eggs. A nice fat 16" will push 2 1/2 - 2 3/4 pounds.

    Thickness has a lot to do with weight and can see a pretty large different in the same length fish. Standard size with weights are just not that exact.
