I think the 10" minimum is working just fine here .

I don't think you'd ever get a 12" limit passed here.

Even if you could, I don't think it would accomplish the same sort of results. Crappie growth rates on the reservoirs in Mississippi are faster. Their 12" fish and our 10" fish are probably not that much different in age.

This page has some data you should find interesting:

http://www.tennessee.gov/twra/fish/Reservoir/Research/crappie.html

Not conclusive by any means, but there may be reason to believe that some reservoirs in TN might actually benefit from LOWERING the size limit to 9" rather than raising it to 12".

i just cant see what a 12" minimum would accomplish on the lakes i fish. they need to lower it to about 9-7/8" that way i can catch one that i can keep. \:\)
