E42,

  Nice catch. We are likely a couple month away from anything like that here.

   Be sure to string the biggest one up last and everyone that sees it will report that you caught approximately 3 dozen crappie and all of them weighed over 2 lbs each. Old trick.

The one your wife is holding is almost a meal by itself.  Guess I need to get my gear dusted off and head down the road.  Thank you for sharing.

Looking at the picture of the entire catch, I was going to comment that "there is almost a meal there"  ;) :D

That there is one serious crappie!! Nice catch, do you use live bait or artificial?
Other than maybe yellow perch through the ice crappie is about as good as it gets when it comes to eating in my opinion.
