      of course white crappie are lighter then black but without seeing better pic probally a black one..you can Google it an they Weill tell u characteristics between ...more the two..take care chad
    2. Chad Jaco 0
      ok thanks Rick!! πŸ‘
    3. Rick Carey 0
      pretty sure it's a black crappie they have irregular spots..compared to white crappie an it's hard to tell because your fish the light from your camera or ...more flashlight kinda blurred out the fish from really being able to determine..
    4. Chad Jaco 0
      Hell yeah buddy!! That's a good one!! I'm not to sure about crappie, so is mine a white or black?

      thanks buddy an great luck for you too...keep sticking them
    2. Rick Carey 0
      ya I get lucky once in awhile only bite I had yesterday but a good one..I found a deep spot let's say once in awhile their always hanging around...sshhh...lol..only ...more way I can get them tho is to slow move something over or near or on top of this PCs of structure whatever it is? I've got dam Xmas tree of baits hanging from it..lots of snags an losses of lures ..costly..but those big ones very rarely aren't in the open an make it easy for you to get at them..I guess that's why their so big? lol
    3. carl schulze 0
      you caught some tanks I see, nice catches
