I’ve really been into crappi fishing over the last handful of years, curious to hear what’s your pb?? If you wanna share what lake and baits would be awesome but it’s on you but I’d love to hear it! Public or private? Time of year?
Mine was 16” private, 15” from skeeter, usually fall or ice….. always plastics for the kid.

I’ve crappie fished a lot. Never caught one over 15 1/2 inches. Back in the late 80’s early 90’s Kentucky lake was phenomenal for big crappie. If you got in the right place , they would run14-15 inches.

This is all from memory...so the numbers are probably <fish lie> lol.

Over 35 years ago I had an uncle that lived in solon on top of cannon hill. In backyard was a little pond which is no longer there as land has been developed.

...Anyway I caught a very large crappie using a dead 4 inch perch for bait. I remember holding it out in front of me with both hands. Best guess was over 2 pounds and around the 16 inch mark. Fish was very thick and had eggs. I released it and now that I think about it I never went back to that pond again.

These were takin from Berlin in the spring right before a massive storm front came rolling through. The one on the left was 15.5" and the other one was 14". I'm still in search for my 16", but the last couple years it's been harder to find the big girls
