    Alright guys, I'm not a big crappie fisher but just the other day my brother-in-law pulled a 16" crappie from my neighbors pond. It was just about the biggest crappie I've seen out of an aquarium. Unfortunately I my scale was broke and I didn't have my camera (wasn't expecting to catch anything worth while). Just got me to wondering what is the biggest catch you guys have reeled in?

    I've had 2 crappie out of smithville lake that were 17+,haven't been able to break the 18 inch mark.Funny thing was they didn't weigh much..can't remember exactly,but I think a little under 2#.

    I've never caught any huge crappie but I know that the NC state record is 4lb16oz. I couldn't believe that when I read it, must look like a welcome mat to a house.

    Caught a 2 1/5 pounder 30+ years ago while bass fishing on a 'Big O'.Most crappie I catch are about the size of my hand.

    I caught a stringer full of monster slabs once but then I rolled off the side of the bed and woke up. most of mine are around 11-13".

    My biggest was 15", don't know the weight. Our state record is 5lb.2oz, but is not common for crappie to get nearly that big here. I heard there was a 5lb.8oz crappie caught in Mississippi. New world record white crappie. Anybody heard anything about it?
