    Nice slab you caught there.
    I have seen strings of Crappie from Kentucky Lake that averaged nearly 2 lbs!

  15. Never measured them but I've got a few 2# and over at kentucky lake. After a trip there it makes you wonder why you fish for crappie in ohio. :confused:

    16-1/2" from a strip mine pond in eastern ohio (harrison county). We were bass fishing about dusk and he hit a #13 floating rapala :D - perch pattern I believe. Must have been 10 or so years ago now. Still have the pic.
     
  17. My biggest crappie ever came from the water hazard pond at Indian Valley Golf Course in Newtown. I knew a guy who was friends with the course caretaker and he let us fish it. 19" on a 1/8 ounce yellow rooster tail. I didn't even know there were decent crappie in there at the time. We were bass fishing when I caught it. From that cast on, I never fished for bass in that pond again. I've been to Kentucky Lake, Barkley, Patoka, all known for big crappie. Never caught bigger crappie on average than that pond.

    Mine is 17 3/4", from kentucky lake in april of 2001. It was one ounce shy of 3 lbs. I've gotten many 2 lbers since then but none close to that one.
     
  19. It was at Pelican Lake MN,in 1976. Caught him on a hellbender while I was trolling for northern. I ate him before I weighed him. I weighed myself after I ate him, but the scales didn't go that high. :D
