    Here's two ridiculous crappie I caught today fishing from a private pond in Central Ohio:

    First one was 2.07 on a digital scale that measures to the tenth vs. ounces and the second one was 2.42lbs.

    I think I've only caught one or two larger than the bigger one in my entire life, and both came from Kentucky Lake 20 years ago.

    Float and large profile bucktail jig. The waves pretty much give it all the action it needs. Move it slightly and slow occassional twitches. Also caught a 2lb cat on it today. It's a great multi-species cool-cold water tool.

    I still can't get over the size of those two. They were each 16" long.
     
  12. Very nice congrats!!
     
  13. 16" each? WOW... I would probably think about getting them mounted together on a piece of drift wood. Well I guess if I had the money to do that I would.

    Nice work!

    Pets lol? What kind of pond? You throw em back? My uncle has a farm pond and my grandpa used to feed a team of giant flatheads at the dam every morning. If he caught you fishing for them or catching them... You were fish food haha :)

    Nice fish!!
     
  16. Bman - Those are two awesome fish Congrats! Thanks for the pics.
     
  17. Man....what a beautiful double mount that would make....

    What was the location of that pond again?????
     
  18. Wow! That had to be a blast. Congrats on the piggies!
