    In the places you fish, what inch mark do you tend to keep crappie at and what would you consider a big crappie?

    I keep them when they're about 10 inches and consider anything over 15 a big one. The biggest I've caught was 17 3/4 inches.

    I agree with most 9" is where I draw the line anything smaller is a waist not much meat.

    I figure these sizes are comparable with the amount of cleaned meat
    9" Crappie
    8" perch
    8" gills

    10" and 13" are eaters , most 14" and ups go back when it's just me out there fishing.
