At what size do you start keeping crappie?

<< < (2/10) > >>

keva:
Thanks for the advice guys. Hopefully I can catch some keepers tonight.

The lake I fish has a lot of crappies 8-13 inches. I really hate people that keep small fish and play the compation game. I rather keep a dozen quality fish than 30 crappie under 10 inches.A 10.5 inch fish would be my start but have kept thick chunky 10's.Last year the crappie ran above average 11- 13 where keepers.

swift's got it right , if it's legal and your trying to fill the freezer 9 and up... but only keep what you need and don't keep going to the same place over and over and pounding on them, cause if it's a Small body of water, won't take long to fish them out.

JZ:
9-13" for me anything under or over go back. But depending on the size of the lake, population etc that range can shift an inch or so either way.

greensider:
11 thats when they start to get weight on them
