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.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
