Possible World Record Crappie Taken in East Tennessee.

A 5.46 pound crappie was recently caught in a pond in Paint Rock, Tennessee. If DNA tests confirm that the jumbo fish was a black crappie, it could be a new world record – although the fish is also heavier than the world record white crappie.

Years ago, Louisiana had a dubious state record black crappie of six pounds listed as a sac-a lait.
Congratulations to Jam Ferguson and his absolutely huge crappie.

5+ pound crappie are extremely rare.
