Hmm...


it very common to catch 4lb crappie in some parts of the US. White crappies ( which is in that picture btw ) are even bigger than the black crappie that so common down these parts or in the SE portions of the US.


fwiw: the world crappie record is 5.4lbs for white and iirc slightly over 4.9lbs for black.


Florida record is 3.84lb for black and we don't have white crappies species as-far as native waters goes.

We have black in michigan.
That would make a decent sized black for around here. I have caught larger blacks around here, but have caught way more smaller.

Anyway, nice catch!

I didnt have a very accurate scale, but the fish was 16 inches long (second largest the taxidermist had ever worked on, next largest was 17") and pretty fat. It was probably upwards of 3 pounds. My taxidermist sure did a nice job though. He even sent me a christmas card.
