I recently adopted a self-imposed slot limit on crappies.  Previously I kept them starting at 10" but after doing some research, I learned how long it takes them to grow to 13 inches or more.  Now I tend to keep them between 10'' and 12".  In PA, a 12 inch crappie is usually about 8 years old but a 14+" fish is nearly 20 years old.  A 10-12 inch fish makes a good fillet but it takes far less time to replace that fish.  I now release those bigger breeding fish and keep the smaller ones (under 13").
