Huge Crappie

Recommended Posts

Has anyone looked at today's Minneapolis Star Tribune and seen the huge Crappie caught on White Bear Lake? The photo is excellent! I think all of us can appreciate the quality of one that size.

The guy didn't name the lake, he said it was a metro area lake, the reason White Bear Lake was mentioned is that's where the guy is from. Although I guess it could still be from WBL. and he just didn't want to say that.

I'm sorry, fellow FM's. I guess I just got so excited seeing a Crappie that large that I glanced at the article and saw WBL.

Awesome fish!!
I've even fished out of that house, friend of a friend.
And its not WBL if he is in the same spot he was for the past couple of years.

Actually it's all about perspective, this guy is really only 2 1/2 feet tall, so really, the crappie isn't all that big.

All kidding aside, very nice slab!

I've seen it before, but I think it was last year. The house clearly shows licenses for 01-03. I suppose 04 could be there maybe behind his head, but it doesn't really look like it.

The link is a year old. I believe the pic is the one Renneberg posted. Beauty fish!

If anyone is still up go to the trib homepage right now and click on that picture of "Bob" the 23 point buck (next to the story about relocating the deer). Does that picture looked edited? Something looks fishy in that pic if you ask me, but it is 12:30 so who knows

    • Dang, I just moved Duff higher on the LIKE count!  😕
    • Beisswengers Hardware in New Brighton.  Top sales of Honda Gens and excellent service. Beisswengers
    • I would get a dlb ladder stand and sit with my kid as much as I could.  Don't let the dude bully you if you have the right to be there as well.  She may not know the age of this person if he had his kid go down there and get permission and he is really doing the hunting?  
    • He has permission from the landowner, let him hunt. If the 50 year old does anything to affect his hunt that is "hunter harassment" and he should be charged. 
    • Obviously the guy has "passion" for "his" hunting spot.  I would try to meet him face to face with your son and see if you couldn't reasonably discuss it and come to an agreement.  Possibly do it at the landowners home if you want to put him in his place.  This of course first goes with how you feel this gentleman would be towards a talk.  After all it is not his land and he can't just bully his way around.  Now if you feel he is psychotic then don't bother.  I have a chunk of land that I can't hunt (even though I have permission and all the rights to hunt it) because the neighbor is crazy enough that he will possibly hunt me and I don't need that feeling of being hunted.  Hope you can work things out!  People get funny when it comes to hunting land especially when they know there is a bigger deer in the area. 
    • Can anyone suggest a good place in the North Metro to get a Honda EU2000 tuned up? Been running problem free for 6 years so I figure it's time.   Thanks in advance for the help.
    • Tough deal on this one.    You've got to decide how much fight you want to put into this.  There are also a lot of life lessons here to teach your son just depends on which one you want to focus on.    In most circumstances I would start out by going to the landowner and explaining the issues and see if you can get it resolved.  However, with it being an 85 year old woman you'll have to decide if you want to drag her into it. I'd probably at least inform her of the issue so that she's aware of what is happening on her property and what type of person is out there.  She should at least know that much as the landowner  If she wants to make it right then so be it but I wouldn't push her on it.  Just leave it as a heads up and let her know your son will move on as to not cause trouble if she doesn't seem like she's got it in her to straighten things out. 
    • Honestly, I would probably do what you did and tell my kid he did everything right, but to move on. This is assuming you didn't get the impression the guy was going to change his mind when you spoke to him.   Unless you know her, the last thing the landowner probably wants to do is get involved in the dispute. And I'm sure you don't want your kid out there alone, not knowing if the older guy will confront him or how unreasonable he could be if he does.              
    • Kind of why I want to work with him rather than just [PoorWordUsage] him off. 
    • Sounds like a good neighbor to get to know if he's going to be around all the time.
