Indiana's current state record crappie is 4-lbs. 11-oz. and was caught back in 1994. About 2 weeks ago, a gentleman fishing out at Geist Res. caught what might have been a new state record crappie. 'Might have been' being the key as the fish was weighed and then supposedly released. From the background of the picture, I'm guessing it was weighed on the scales at the ramp office. The crappie was reported to weigh 5-lbs. 6-oz. and was caught on a charteuse 2" Power Grub in about 3' of water. I was forwarded a picture of this beast the other day, so I'll post it below and let everyone decide for themselves, as we will probably never know for certain.
