That's a beauty, especially for Michigan. 10 yrs ago I was at the Kenlake ramp on Ky. lk. when 2 Indiana fellers were coming in to drop off a mess of crappies in their cooler. They had 2 5gl. buckets full of huge crappies. They said they stopped keeping them if they were under 16"ers.  They showed me 3 that were over 20", 1 was just under 23. I wanted to go out with them, but they never asked. Their boat was set-up with the 2 spider rig rod holder things......

Big crappie are fun, fun. I haven't done that specifically in the spring in a couple years. Haven't made it over to my usual spring crappie lakes. The crappies have been on the down swing in size there but the water levels are up so I'm hoping in a couple-three more seasons they get bigger again.

Still like to catch them anyway so I took a trip late last fall with Mini over the the panfish mecca of Lake St. Clair and caught a bunch of gills and few nice crappie. I need to post that up with some pictures one of these days. Mini is one some striped crappie that are odd looking.

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.

Missed this one. They say Crappies go in a 7 year cycle. good thing different lakes and ponds peak at different times.
