    Wow! That is huge! I have caught nothing close to that big... usually about half that and I feel like they are great to be catching!

    I don't weigh them, I go by length. I know I've got a 14 and I think I've caught a 15". No clue as to weights.
    Yes, I was talking to myself; sometimes even I have to ask for expert advice.

    I have quite a few 3 pounders but I havenít weighed fish in years. All I do now is get a measurement on them.

    The rest of the crappie I caught didn't come close. A crappie I caught 2 weeks ago was over 15".
    Thought both were bass by the fight. Good thing I had the net.

    Not bad for the northeast.

    Several years ago on Lake Barkley, I was dipping minnows into buckbrush under a slip bobber on a fly rod. I hooked the biggest crappie I had ever seen in the middle of a bush and had to break limbs off to get the fish to the net. I got it in the boat, admired it, then dropped it in the livewell of my Skeeter bass boat. I was alone and didnít have a camera with me. This was at least a decade before cell phones.

    No more than 10 minutes later and no more than 20 feet down the line of flooded brush, I hooked another huge white crappie. I dragged it out of the brush and into the net. Again, I admired it then dropped it in the livewell.

    I fished a while longer and ended up with 8 keepers. I put the Skeeter on the trailer and headed toward home since I had to work the afternoon shift. I stopped by a small Mom and Pop store that made deli sandwiches. As the man was making my sandwich, he asked if I had done any good? I told him I had 2 of the biggest crappie I had ever seen. He said bring them in and heíd weigh them on his state certified scale. When he weighed them, they came to 3 lb 4oz and 3 lbs even.
    Being that this was years before I started doing taxidermy and we were living on my income alone while Vicki was in college, I never gave having them mounted a second thought. They were filleted and enjoyed. Maybe some day Iíll decide to do them in reproductions.
