Crappie weight and length rule

Ray's picture

By Ray - Posted on 18 September 2012

Here is a nice tool for estimating weight of crappiei by measuring them. This is no replacement for putting the crappie on the scales but it is a quick way to estimate weight. Of course if the crappie is in poor condition post spawn or fat with eggs the weights will vary but this is a very good rule of thumb.
I printed and laminated and stuck it to the inside cover of one of the compartments in my boat for reference while on the water.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
