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!

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share

      I found some ice!!! Not exactly much, and there are swans in the picture indecating open water too. But it's a start.
