    Caught the biggest crappie of my life at MTL....didn't weigh it but easily my largest. Caught her 7 foot down against a tree over 35 foot of water. She measured just short of 15 inches....I know it don't look that big in the pics but crappeie never look big in pics....I shoulda laid a tape next to it for the pic...oh well. She still had eggs by the way.

    It was just the two of us...my 11 year old and I...and we kept 7 before we ran outta time and had to quit....it was slow going because this trip was mostly about teaching my daughter Cara how to use a spinning rig ahead of our trip to Canada in July...she had a tough time jigging but she can cast ok. Last trip to Canada I had her set up with a Diawa spin cast reel and the darn thing was nuttin but trouble so this eyar everyone in my boat will be using spinning tackle.

    All of the females we caught at MTL last weekend still had eggs in them too. The biggest was right at 14".
