The IGFA world record for White Crappie is 5lb 3oz, Black Crappie is 5lb.

For records that stand at less than 25lbs the fish needs to be at least 2 ounces larger to defeat the record.

Man, I would be bummed if I caught one 1 oz larger than the record and it didn't get the recognition frown

It would get recognized as a tie.

Just wondering if maybe the state of MN and IGFA's requirements for being a record are different?

If you submit to the state of MN for a record, does IGFA automatically recognize that entry or is it a separate submittal? Do you need to submit to both entities if you have a fish that would qualify for both?

I really don't know but can understand where there could be a disparity.

Yes, you need to submit to the IGFA separately from the MN DNR. From everything that I have read about the IGFA I'm not really a fan of the program. The Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame does recognize record holders from the IGFA, but the IGFA does not from the FFHF. The FFHF will recognize state DNR record holders depending on the state if they have a relatively rigorous way to verify the fish.

I don't know how long a 5 lb crappie would be, but a 3 lb 2 oz

comes in at 17.5 inches.
