Yea, it was a monster for Ohio public waters for sure. Caught some that big and one 19" inch at a gravel north of Urbana before, but nothing like that on public waters. Found a dead crappie at Kiser once that measured 21 1/2 inches. My buddy and I could not believe their was crappie that big in Kiser. Another buddy of mine seen a guy catch a 22" at Cowan at the marina docks. Their there, just rare. I know what you mean about Alabama crappie, My dad and I use to fish Weiss Lake when I was younger. Seeing all those mounted 4 to 6 pound crappie at all the local bait shops and diners use too wow us.
