One big crappie

Andy Friesen, Hillsboro, shows off the prize crappie he caught in an undisclosed farm pond this past Saturday using artificial bait. This whopper measured a few scales past 17 inches in length and had a girth of 13 inches. The crappie weighed 3 1/2 pounds and was just short of tying the Kansas state record of 4 pounds and one half ounce. Friesen said there’s at least one more big crappie out there because one just like this one got away. Friesen plans to have this trophy fish mounted.
