    Here is a picture of my first big crappie. We are at the most northern range of the crappie and they don't have a very long growing season.I wonder how old this 14 3/4" black crappie is (still swimmin and growing :D ) Got if drifting a 1/16th oz jig with half a nightcrawler.

    Nice, just right for fileting.

    I just got up from the table from finishing off a plate full of crappie filets... my favorite eating fish.
    :D

    Nice crappie.Its starting to cool down around here,I do my best crappie fishing in nov-dec,until the water freezes.Have got 2 18 inchers before.I use small jigs tipped with crappie nibbles under a float,no movement,just let the wind blow it around.
