    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.
    Bluegill still fear me...but the crappie are not laughing quite as loudly as they used to.

    Ya gotta do what you have to do before you can do what you wanna do.

    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.
