Huge Crappie At Lake Rockwell

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by Mr. Whiskers, May 11, 2018.

  1. Here's a couple 18" crappie caught off the causeway at Lake Rockwell. Only caught 17 between us but all were huge.

    See how fast the state could screw that lake up if it became public! If they didn't put panfish regulations on it we'll give it 2 years on the size of fish!
     
  5. Whisk, WOW! Thx for posting that! Are those waders? Would/could a Rockwell crappie count as a State record? I'm sure it's there-if so!

    If those are waders he’s sneaking in , not even allowed to do. But I have seen a couple vehicles parked off of 14 in the berm last week about 20 feet from a no parking sign. That won’t last long before they get the boot.

    Wondering...besides that lake being off limits, why are the crappie so big in that lake?

    The human element has not affected the fisherie! Some lakes can manage themselves some can't!!

    Most of the record panfish including the current state record black crappie have come from private waters. As long as it's not a pay to fish body of water it counts.
     
  13. Maybe the waders are insulated and he was cold.... ;). Something fishy goin on here. Nice fish but not worth a fine or a trespassing charge.

    On the internet you can say you caught fish from anywhere doesn’t mean it’s true, this thread comes up every year. Meander s next.

  18. Nice fish! Walborn, Milton, Berlin and West Branch all have fish of this size. Fishing at dusk gets em.

  19. Speaking of Walborn, been wanting to ask on here if it's good for "legal" sized crappie? Or, is it "unrestricted" like Wft and Moggie? I live fairly close and only fished it in late summer, once, fifteen years ago.(Was like NO fish on locator entire trip. Haven't been back since.)
