Thought I saw that pic a couple years ago. If it is one of the same I heard it came from Lake Havasu.

They do catch big crappie in that area. Whenever I see someone holding a fish with out stretched arms I call BS. A big fish doesn't need any help.

You're not supposed to tell everybody about the stretch arm trick LOL

Not sure though, that picture has made the rounds since that time.  Probably have to hire a PI to find the truth now.  Here's another picture from the March 2010 article.

That was my thoughts too . It said in the info I was told it was the new STATE record for whatever ever state it was caught.  If that's not the world record I would sure like to see the world record!

Carolina's north and south record black crappie is 5 pounds. White crappie is 5.1.  Its still big but not seven pounds. And its not the Kincaid crappie either I don't believe.

That first pic can be found in many places!  I think I found the correct info but like I said above, by now a really expensive private investigator may be required to find the truth.  With that pic anyway.

Tape measure over the top will give you an inch longer vs. a board on a fish that size.
I live in the midwest now but have fond memories of fishing in New England as a kid.

Yes, one of my big pet peeves


Lack of closing the mouth and making sure it's on the zero mark is another one
