Largest Crappie I've ever seen 





I Caught a 4.5 lb Crappie day before yesterday out of my neighbors pond...I didn't even know they got this big!

Y'all ever catch one this big.....The pic doesn't do it justice...... but it was thick and heavy!

that crappie does not weigh 4.5 lbs.  Ain't no way!!!!  

Here's one that weighs 2.3 lbs at 15 inches long and 12 inches around the girth.

here is a world record crappie at 4 lbs and 14 ozs.

wow dude, you only missed the world record by less than a pound!!!!..........................disbelief

If that is 18 in long, you have 6 inch fingers.

Nice fish nonetheless though.

I've caught several crappie 17-18 in long and none of them were close to 4lbs let alone 4.5lb. I'd say you might have a 2-2.5lber on your hands.

Here's the Black Crappie Ohio record ...

Crappie, Black 4.5 lb 18 1/8" Private Lake Ronald Stone, Wooster May 24,1981

Crappie, White 3.90 18 1/2" Private Pond Kyle Rock, Zanesville April 25, 1995


Y'all believe what you will, this is that the measurements were and the pics that were taken were farther away and does make look smaller than what it was but that was the weight and measurements that I had....

LOL...You are good at that....lol

My wife took the picture 20 feet away and I cropped it and I now it does look smaller than actuall size.. But it was what it was...

I did put it back in the pond, though....I didn't even think about it at the time, My Uncle that I was fishing with said he never saw anything that big in one neither.....

He was the reason we were there fishin that day, I wasn't reallly even tryin to catch anything....He has cancer in the pancreas and liver and we was there just to have good time and tryin take his mind off his problems and pain hopefully....I wasn't focused on the fish That much to tell you the truth, so, I was't even think that hard about it.....He's been my employer, my huntin and fishin buddy, and a darn good friend for over 26 years, he really is my wife's uncle. He the one reason we met in the first place 25 1/2 years ago...And now, it been hard to watch him die......They gave him only a few weeks and he is 59...

No tackle box is complete without a few Maribou jigs.

I like the pink/white and the chartreuse/white combos.  Those will catch just about anything that swim.

That's kind of surprising. The white crappie I catch seem to be a whole lot bigger than the black crappie on average. And I'm talking nearly twice the size. Maybe it's just where I'm fishing.

RE: Largest Crappie I've ever seen 


Same here , he was also a very big WVU fan . Heck , I don't even hunt anymore . my dogs are so fat it would kill them .  We would always head to StoneWall with the boat every chance we got or head north with the boat to Lake Erie . 
 By the way , son caught one a few years ago 18 3/4 inches and just at 3 pounds . It had a big knot on it's head like a brow . Biggest I've ever seen came out of the Little Hocking River at Twin bridges . They put it in a 5 gal. bucket and it's tail stuck out . They were bank fishing and I couldn't get close with the boat so I couldn't weight it or anything . asked what they were going to do with it and they said Eat it of course .
 Anything over 16 inches is a nice crappie IMHO .

You all know fishing tales aren't supposed to be exactly legit!!!!!  Having said that, that puppy would have been in the fry pan!!!!!  I release all bass but Crappie is goin in the belly.
