I just got a text message with a pic of a 6 lb 8 oz crappie caught at Snake Den Hollow. Can anyone confirm this? I attached the pic and opened a poll to see the peoples opinion.

I got nailed with the same message.  That’s just wrong.

I still wish it was hangin on my wall. Pictures are hard to guess the weight and size, background, the size of the person holding them, how they are being held, how fat the fish really is. And how accurate are most scales sitting in the bottom of a tackle box? There are a lot of these pictures posted I wonder about the size, but you know what, the person that caught that certain fish is proud of it and that is all that matters and like most fisherman/women they do tend to fudge a little anyway. The text you guys got was what probably started out as one guy gigging a fishing buddy about it being caught where he fishes and it just grows. I will admit, during mushroom season my buddy gets texts from other guys showing different bags of schrooms, then we stop and have a couple of barley pops at the local watering hole and he show’s these pictures saying these are what we have found just to get people worked up, and I just sit there and grin like it’s the truth.
