so, i went out on the water today and used minnows for the first time ever in this peticular lake. i caught a 6lb bass which is, my record and made it worth while, and 20 crappie. the magic number seemed to be 8 inches with one 10 inch who fell back in the water. my question is, do crappies school in various sizes? or can you catch eight inchers and decide to move. what info does this say? a school of medium to little crappies=move? or just fish it out? i threw em all back, but had fun, but was still disappointed because i could just taste em swimmin in the oil.
