gamehaven crappie question

1 post in this topic

I have often fished gamehaven in the spring for crappies. During certain periods and days I have caught a crappie on every cast for hours at a time. The problem is I have never caught what I would consider a keeper crappie. Every crappie is the same.....about 9 inches. I have never caught one over 10".

So........I'd love to hear your opinion on why this is. There are too many and they are stunted? Not enough food source even though LM Bass get big? Too much pressure and they never do get big?

It seems like a big enough body of water which is stream fed I have always tried to figure out why they are all consistently small and never reach what I would consider a mature size of over 10.

Any thoughts?

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
