Crappie Size

Discussion in 'IceFishingMichigan.com' started by mikeznewaygo, Jan 5, 2013.

  1. 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.
     
  10. i keep about foot longs and up, my secret spot 15 and 16s arent uncommon but i guess i never thought about putting in for a master angler

    If they are big enough to eat they are big enough to keep...

    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.
