CRAPPIE WEIGHT VS LENGTH

Recommended Posts

Guest

HEY ALL, I JUST WANTED TO POST THIS FOR SOME OF THOSE PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT DISBELIEVE PEOPLE WHEN THEY SAY THAT THEIR FISH WAS A CERTIN WEIGHT AND THE FISH WEIGHED X AMOUNT OF LBS. HERE IS A FEW EXAMPLES THAT WILL SHOW YOU THAT LENGTH = WEIGHT OF A CRAPPIE CAN VARY ALOT.
5 LB 0 OZ = 21INCHES @ VERMILLION RIVER MN
3 LB 6.24 OZ= 19.5 INCHES @ STONEY CREEK MI
4 LB 9 OZ = 16 INCHES @ BLACK RIVER NM
2 LB 12.8 OZ = 17.25 INCHES NH
3 LB 11 OZ = 17.25 INCHES TX
THE LAST EXAMPLE AMAZED ME 1 LB DIFFERANCE AND HAD THE SAME LENGTH HOPE A LEAST 1 PERSON FOUND THIS AS INTERESTING AS MYSELF

I've figured somthing like that would be the case...some Crappie are so much thicker accross the back than others. It had to be.

It's no surprise to me. I've noticed even around the lakes here in the cities that in some lakes the crappies are bigger link wise but have thinner fillets but on other lakes the would have shorter fish with thinker fillets. It seens to me that lakes that are clearer have the bigger but thinner fish. The fish that come from stained water or more fertile lakes will have the fatter fish.
Which is the case with URL.

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      Good idea on the silicone spray definelty something to do every spring a big help to keep things sliding nicely. I use that stuff on anything that slides. On telescoping flip over poles for example.

      Pulled it up front and went to work on it. Silicone lubed everywhere.  Quite a task taking the steel cover off underneath that protects the main drive but got er done. Zips right up and down with the attachment I got for the drill. Nice!

      I found a very handy app for this. It's called onX Hunt Maps.  (I'm just a user) It's primarily designed for hunters that want to know where state/federal vs private lands are.  To see property lines etc. you need the paid (premium) version. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. But even the free version does quite a bit. It's pretty interesting for Vermilion because there is so much of each - private and state/federal lands. You can click on each parcel and it will even give the acreage, landowner names and tax address.  If I pull up to shore, I really want to know that I'm not trespassing. GPS works along with markers/waypoints. Maps can be stored for offline use so you  can use it without phone service or wifi. The free version comes with a trial of the premium version for 7 days. I added a zoomed out screen grab.
