    {4 Lbs crappie, there are very few crappie that size! 2 lb crappie is very large! nice fish mark}

    Hmm...


    it very common to catch 4lb crappie in some parts of the US. White crappies ( which is in that picture btw ) are even bigger than the black crappie that so common down these parts or in the SE portions of the US.


    fwiw: the world crappie record is 5.4lbs for white and iirc slightly over 4.9lbs for black.


    Florida record is 3.84lb for black and we don't have white crappies species as-far as native waters goes.

    We have black in michigan.
    That would make a decent sized black for around here. I have caught larger blacks around here, but have caught way more smaller.

    Anyway, nice catch!

    speaking of wall hangers, heres mine from last year:

    I didnt have a very accurate scale, but the fish was 16 inches long (second largest the taxidermist had ever worked on, next largest was 17") and pretty fat. It was probably upwards of 3 pounds. My taxidermist sure did a nice job though. He even sent me a christmas card.
