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.

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
