MEGA Crappie Day 11-27.....New AV Crappie Record! + pics

Went out with a crappie jig after church after seeing Khanh's pics.  Zippo at Beech and only a throw-back at Alder.  Decided to try the dam at Ashburn........Glad I did!  Bobber goes down hard and I think it's a nice bass......nope.....it's a huge crappie big_smile  Finally get it through all the primrose weeds on the shore and it's a personal best.............weighs in at 2 pounds 1.5 oz and 16-1/4 inches long.

Caught on a little white crappie jig.  Electronic scales teetered betwen 2-1 and
2-2.  "Kitchen scales" that I use are very accurate and setteled at 2-1.5 with the fish in the pic.  Hard to get pic of fish and be able to read the electronic scales at the same time tongue ..............I bet there is a 3 pounder in Ashburn Lake! big_smile

I used to do fish taxidermy many years ago.  Hardly anyone does skin mounts anymore.........it's all fiberglass reproductions now.  Maybe I should get started in it again? wink

most of the crappie are stunted in lake ashburn

i have caught a few big ones , but in my experience the majority are too small to fillet.

i caught one a little smaller than that on a P&J by the spillway once.

some day sonar will help me find some cover not visible from the surface.

unless it is windy, they always seem to set up on an object

and certainly, a three pounder is possible

@ Curly - you get your citation certificate?!


If it were easy, they'd call it catching!
