    I saw on KRCG news the other night of a crappie over 5lbs was caught last week here in mid-Missouri. Supposedly BP has it in their possession, live. A local angler caught it and is supposed to be a new world record, but danged if I can't find a story on it. Anyone else here anything?

    A close friend who works for the MDC saw it and told me about it last week. I don't think it's been verified yet by the MDC and/or IGFA. Stay tuned.

    Um.....I don't think (and I'm just thinking) that 5 pounds is going to be the WORLD record.....

    world record white crappie weighs 5.3 ozs. world record black crappie weighs 4.8 ozs. what i heard the fish was a black weighing 5.2 ozs. the fish was weighed by the MDC at gerbes on certified scales. bass pro has the fish and are trying to keep it alive. the state record black weighs 4.8ozs and the white weighs 4.9ozs. i would love to see this MONSTER.

    i asked my manager about it yesterday but he heard about it but wasnt sure about the "bass pro having it" thing. He's looking into it and gonna get back to me. I wonder how much BPS paid for it if its true? Anybody got any guesses?

    Now its going to live out its life in a dang tank:roll2:

    Yeh, I haven't heard anymore on the fish either.
    I wish I'd remember who caught it here and I'd call him.

    I talked to a guy Saturday that knows the "catcher". He is local, I forgot his name. I'll ask again tonight. He said BP has it, it's alive, but being a game fish, BP couldn't purchase the fish. He will receive other considerations....:roll2:
     
  19. Considerations??? You mean products instead of cold hard cash! I would probably have to ask for a new boat or perhaps a pair of ATV's.:rotfl:

    Since we haven't heard anything from the MDC, can we assume it was not a state/world record? IIRC, it took them less than 10 days to verify the last couple of record brown trout. :confused:
