A 12 inch plus crappie is nearing its life cycle. U can sustain a good population if there is a good spawn year after year but that doesn’t happen in wis.

I consistantly toss the big girls back. On some lakes 12 inch fish are eaters but here a 12 is big so a 9 is my keeper. It all matters on the body of water im on.

Thanks fischkiller I didn't want to really get into why I was keeping the smaller crappie. Too many people keep the big ones and wonder why in a couple of years there are only small crappie.

If u dont realize it it is better for the lake to keep 9 inch crappie then 12 inch fish. Why keep the big females i can clean a 9 inch fish they eat up just fine

If I said they were bigger everyone would be out fishing. This way  fisherman may stay away now because the crappie are too small.
