I agree.

I did not know this about LMB!

The bloom has subsided to 2í vis. But still not catching any crappie.... going on six years now and have had only one known spawn in that time and catching less and less crappie. Guess those double digit bass are putting a hurt on them.... maybe will get a spawn this spring

Pat, I saw a picture of a 12" Black crappie that had a height of 4.5", so a LMB with a mouth gape of 5" could potentially eat it.....

Pat are you seeing or catching any small crappie ? Any signs of a spawn at all ? Possible reproduction inhabitation - see next PB mag article.

Eric I am not catching any small crappie at all, they are all 8-11Ē . They used to be easy to catch but now you really have to work at it to even catch one. I have caught and released LMB anywhere from 2-10#. Guess I should remove all the LMB for a while that size. The larger LMB appear to be fat while the under a # ones are skinny. Really stumped about whatís going on . Have not seen any signs of a spawn other than the first one 5 years ago

That video I linked to said something to the effect that crappie broods can easily be starved out if there isn't enough of the right food early enough in the year. Could that be your problem? Could something be delaying your foodchain from developing in the spring? Or maybe the fishery gave you hybrids or a single sex batch?
