Record Size Crappie Caught

Believe it or not, a lot of record size fish are caught out of small ponds and smaller sized lakes.


It’s true, because the largest bass I caught was on a pond right across from the old four bear theme park in Michigan. The largemouth bass was caught on 6 pound test with a very flimsy pole, I’m surprised I hauled the monster in. But, since it was so big it didn’t really fight that much.

Ronnie Emory Jr. out of Franklinton, North Carolina has just caught the largest white crappie for the state. It is a record breaking 3 pounds and 8 ounces. Doesn’t sound like much, but that’s one hell of big Crappie. The fish measure 20 inches in length and 14 1/2 inches in girth. Now that’s sounds more like it, pretty big indeed. It’s just the fish is so thin.

Ronnie Emory Jr. is 25 years of age, just one year younger than me. His white crappie surpassed North Carolina’s state record by 1/4 of a pound. James G. (Greg) Brown caught a 3-pound, 4-ounce fish on March 5, 2008, from a pond at the Waverly Swim Club in Charlotte.

So fisherman get out to those ponds and small lakes, you never know what sized fish you might catch, it might be the next state record. Congrats to Ronnie, hope you mount that sucker!
