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

    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever. 
    • Fleet Farm currently has Kingsford 15.4lb x 2 for $8.  About the same per pound as the summer sales.
    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.
