Nice crappie today
« on: Mar 15, 2005, 08:56 PM »
Wouldn't you know it! I got a 15-3/8" crappie today, no camera with
me, so I couldn't take a picture of it to enter in the I/S tournment. It
took a hali jig with a mousie.

That's a really nice crappie Seaweed. I wish you would have had your camera, as I would enjoy seeing a nice crappie like that. Congrats anyway.

Now THAT is a slab. The biggest crappie I've caught through the ice is about a 2 pounder and he didn't fight all that much. How much does a crappie like that fight?

With my light jigging rod I was using, I thought that I had a
decent bass, but was very supprised to see the crappie. To
answer your question, it fought very well. In the lake I fish
I've caught quite a few14" to 15"+, some fight real well and others
come right in. (Just like women - you never know what they are
going to do.)

At least the crappie didn't ask you how you felt about catching it, and what were your plans for the future? On a more serious note though, that is a monster crappie! Nice going.

I have two lakes with nice crappie within an hour of my house, and two other lakes with tons of smaller crappies within two hours. One lake is within 30 minutes and it has lots of crappies but sometimes you wade through the small ones but always you get some in the 1 - 2 pound range. The other big crappie lake has lots of pike in it and lots of yellow perch and the crappie population is more sparse. But they average a pound or better and usually you get them best at dark or afterwards. I could probably find them better in this lake but I'm waiting watching my tip ups for a pike so I can't move around as much.

Thanks for posting my pic billditrite I have no idea how to post yet.
Frozen Nutts measured it with me and it was exactly 16 inches. Still have to weigh it, what a horse slab fought like a big bass, 6 or 7 heavy runs as witnessed by the crappie league. Caught on 6 lb maxima camelion line while jigging my trap, hit about 3 feet down .
Looking for a bigger one wed, thurs nite this week. ;D :tipup:

i've caught a lot of crappie through the ice, and two that were absolutely hawgs, one being just shy of the MI record. the two hawgs both fought like a wet sock, go figger. sure is amazing to pull em through the ice though. right now i'm down south because of work, and having a ball with the big crappies, they sure fight a lot harder down here.
