Behemoth crappie caught
« on: February 26, 2020, 07:04:27 PM »
 :reporter; Behemoth 19" crappie caught in MN!!! :doah:

 :coffee: ......
Absolutely one of the biggest slabs I've ever seen/heard of being plucked through the ice! Stacy Ferrell Hedberg caught the 19 1/8" [!!] freakazoid in southern MN -- had it weighed at a local bait shop to the tune of 3-lb 15-oz! Fasten your seatbelts:

Huge congrats on the fish of a lifetime, Stacy!

Btw the current MN state-record crappie is one that'll likely never (ever!!) be broken.... A 5-lber (21") caught from the Vermillion River back in 1940. :happy1:

I've never been able to find a picture of it and some think "it's possible the fish was poorly identified and actually was a hybrid between a black and white crappie." Guess we'll never know....  :scratch:
 



Can't even imagine. That fish could go on the Keto diet...lose 2 lbs...and still be considered obese. :fish2:
