NY state record crappie(pics added)
« on: Jan 29, 2013, 03:56 PM »
Group down from us today caught a most likely state record crappie. According to them and another witness it was 18" long and hovering around 4lbs-4.5lbs(not officially weighed). They called DEC to report. They measured it and took pictures and packed up quick and headed to a grocery store to find a certified scale(DEC told them to). Then I'd imagine they are going to bring it to NYDEC to confirm weight and measurements. I told the one guy about this site. Hopefully he reads this. I'm hoping to see a picture or get more info. It was caught on a tip up. By the time we made it over there to check it out they were packed up. I'm not going to give location. I'll let the guys who caught it disclose that if they wanted. New state record would be cool to see, especially to have it caught few hundred yards from us.

Sometimes you have to fish when you can,
not when you want, but guess what?

You're still fishing!!!

very awesome, can't wait to hear more....16 1/2"- 17 1/2" crappies are the biggest I've seen.
But these were c&r fish.

btw, if you are on a c&r waters with "no possession of fish", is it legal to take a potentially state record fish? 
Just a question I've been wondering, cause I know there are record fish inbetween green island and corinth in the Hudson River.  ;)

when you get an answer, let us know.
can you harvest a possible record fish out of the c&r hudson sections?

I believe you are right.  There are some monsters in there.   My personal best lgmth bass, bluegill, and channel cat all came out of that section.

My buddy is head of the lake association for that lake. I'm sure I will get details soon. We should of went over to look as soon as he told us about it. Guy said go look they were friendly guys and they would show us.  We waited and they ended up leaving. Even if it is shy of record (which the one guy believes it beats record) it still a monster. Hopefully there is some pics that surface to validate this. I even told the guy about ice shanty.com
 How long to you think it would take until it was posted as official record on DEC website? If it did end up being a record.

Interestingly, my youngest brother was crappie fishing on another upstate, NY body of water this past Sunday and a fella 10 yards from him landed a 17.5" crappie -- the guy didn't have a tape measure, so my brother went over and measured it for him -- my brother figured it was 3 lbs+ and thought it might be a state record, but this guy didn't want to pursue it -- unfortunately, no photos!

about 5 yrs ago fish 307 had a 19" crappie in their shop and i asked to see it. it was clearly a record. or so everyone agreed. well it turned out to be a whitexblack hybrid. which i assumeed doesnt qualify  for any record. so that is definitely a possibility. i dont know if crappie hybrids are sterile or not. many others are.  this would explain the large size since  they dont put any energy into reproducing, just feeding.

I landed one 3 yrs ago in otisco in the spring. Thought i had the state record for sure, didnt have a tape or anything. Called dec and while waiting for them i landed an even bigger one. First one was 16 3/4in and 3 lbs. Second one was 17 1/2 and 3.6 . Missed it by 7 ounces. Was only 21 at the time. Would have been nice, maybe next time. And yes record is out of duck lake.
