I would again, not like a 12" min. on crappie here, and wish they would up the limit back to 30 fish. It just doesn't take very long to catch 15.


I remember "back in the day" before the limit, when people would roll into the ramp on Priest and Kentucky Lake with stringers of 100 or 150 crappie. Same dudes would do it several weekends in a row sometimes on a good spring. To each his own, but I never could understand why a person could want that many fish to eat.

Heck, forget eating - who wants to clean that many fish? \:\)

I've just known too many people who pack their freezer plum full of filets and then wind up throwing half of them away when they get freezer burned. Just greedy in my book.

Hey Brian, you need to come to one of our redneck, southern, lost creek anytime of the year fish fries.

It will answer many of your questions.

what size they running over there hook? i just can't keep a 10 incher unless i need em bad. about 11 is my personal minimum on tenn river, reelfoot or anywhere.

i guess it is possible that a higher minimum might create some sort of pop explosion of smaller fish, but i doubt it. the 10in min did not have that effect. i think it would work.

the 10 in. minimum DID have that effect.when you catch 50+ fish and only 2 or 3 barely measure 10 inches. something is wrong.

Holy cow. The TNDeer forum has got to be the most defensive, easily offended, angriest discussion board on the entire Internet. Un-bunch your panties a little.

I didn't say I wanted the limit any lower than it is now, and I didn't say I supported the 12" minimum that started this whole discussion. All I said was that 100 to 150 crappie every weekend seemed like a little more than some folks needed.

So maybe I'm wrong - maybe all those people are holding weekly fish fries. I've known people who put fish in the freezer and later threw them out, but maybe my experience is unique on TNDeer.

Not a lecture guys, just a comment. Un-bunch your fists for a while and settle down.

Its funny that he will defend himself keeping a bunch of crappie, but if someone else decides to keep a limit of trout he attacks them and blames them for ruining a fishery. I guess the crappie arent as important to him.


Here is a quote from just the other day:
Great, glad we can watch another good fishery die off for a second time at the hands of you and the crowds which show up when the internet gossip chain starts. I thought once was enough for a lifetime, but I guess good things just don't last...
