Ok, everyone has a story of the one that got away and here is mine. I was crappie fishing at Alum last Thursday and caught several nice crappie between 10 & 13 inches. I just anchored around one of my honey holes and withing 5 minutes caught 7 or 8 little crappie when all of a sudden I got hit hard. I got the fish in and realized I had a monster of a crappie on. I looked at the fish and looked at my net and decided not to use my net. When I lifted the crappie up and started to swing it into my boat it started flopping and the next thing I know the fish is gone back into the water. I never got to measure it but from the brief moment I saw it Im going to say it was atleast 16 to 17 inchs or bigger. I have caught a few in the 16 inch range and I truely believe this was bigger than 16 but I guess I will never know. Just thought I would share my great fish story on the lake.
