Sorry guys, my bro wanted me to post his hawg. He caught it on a waxi fishing bluegills. I threw a crappie the same size in our bait bucket. I thought it would be good spearing bait. My bro told me that it would be illegal to transport the fish alive. I laughed said that I would tell the officer that is was a crappie minnow and was just bait. I did let it go. Anyone else got some "big" fish picts?

I've been putting off a trip to Red because I heard the crappies weren't big enough, but that picture has changed my mind

WOW! that just amazes me! How in the heck did you catch that thing, scoop net? I'm never going to complain about only catching small fish ever again

I've got crappies in my minnow bucket I can see through. That one above is something amazing.

That bull gill really put my tackle to the test!

Actually I caught about a pound pike and he managed to wrap himself in about 5 pounds of weeds and a few of the fingerling 'gills got stuck in the weeds.

Ive actually hooked smaller, on a crankbait! Actually snagged is a better way to put it. I snagged two sunnies about the same size on one crankbait this past summer. Only time Ive got two fish on crankbait...
