I too got to see a big one. A guy next to us caught a 17.75", 2.94 lbs crappie on lake tetonka on feb 13. I have never seen such a hog. It made the few 12" in the pail look like small. I got to hold it and you could put your first 3 fingers in the mouth and they didnt touch. My son Matt measured and weighed it for him. I wouldn't have belived it if had not seen it with my own eyes. Way to go LaDon!!!!! Matt J. we were close buddy!!!

Trying to see if this worked, this was caught a few years back in a lesueur area lake, i had it in my freezer for 3 mos before I brought it to the taxidermy, it weighed 2lbs 9 oz then, he said it would have been really close to 3 lbs wet live weight 16.5"

Thanks, the crappies from url are really typical that size, I cant explain the thrill of seing crappies that big come from an ice hole. Im just waiting for my 30"+ walleye to put on the wall next to it!

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
