    Lvn2Fish reacted to Devan S. in Crappie, 10-7   
    The growth rates from the Grenada study are measured directly from the fish from Grenada. The colored maps are USDA hardiness zone maps. They are really in effect just a comparison of the average minimum winter temperature which should at least in some sense corelate to minimum water temperature as an average across the area. 
     
    I don't know of any study specifically related to the growth of crappie at Stockton lake. It probably doesn't exist. I do however think its a stretch to say growth rates are comparable between Stockton and Grenada. If the growth rate for a white crappie at Grenada is 3.7"/year and Stockton is 3.3"/year(a number I just pulled out of thin air to come up with a 10" LL in year 3) then sure they appear close as absolute numbers however the percent difference ends up being 10% difference in growth rates per year which is sizeable when you start talking about 3-4 years compounded.
     
    Walcrabass's concept is that Crappie fisheries in themselves are generally catch and keep, not catch and release like bass. In effect his theory is that the biggest contributor to size structure is the LL. Which is probably correct and IF the growth rate is 3.3"/year then adding a year to go from 3 years age class to 4 year age class to harvest is likely not a big deal. However the danger in doing that is that you in effect add an age class of fish to the lake that has to have the food resource available to survive. 
    If you do this with Crappie the effect may be minimal, add in changing bass, walleye, catfish, and the concern is a situation where your add a significant strain on the food resource in a lake that is designed and managed as a multispecies destination.  
    In my opinion this is the biggest difference between Grenada and Stockton all other things considered. Grenada is managed as a trophy crappie lake to the detriment of all other species(as evidenced by their regulations). Their focus is 99% Crappie for that lake and it works and works well. It is a premier Crappie destination that people travel from all over to visit for one thing and one thing only. They aren't attempting to have significant amounts of "other" species" there in any quality or quantity.

    You guys trying to compare a Lowland fishery in Mississippi to a highland fishery like Stockton is just plain dumb . Clear water , cold winters , lack of cover . These things don’t play a part in the health and size of a population according to your logic . Not to mention the water volume difference in the lakes in general .

    I get it, but it’s not like every fish in the lake that’s 10 inches has been caught. Maybe instead of blaming the lake and you can look at yourself for the answer. It’s the fall. The fall is tough , it always has been and always will be. I guarantee that towards the end of November the fish will move to a more catchable location and all will be quite again . It’s seems the time of overreacting has made its way from the line at the grocery store to the lake . God help us

    I re read everything pretty sure you and Babs agree lol . Maybe your need for internet arguments has gotten the better of you once again .  And just like bill said stay on your side of the lake ...which is your right side . All seems to make sense to me

    Found 8 of them the other day! Like Babler said 15-20 feet . Also don’t be afraid to try around docks . We fished from 7-11. Used worms probably could have caught a big mess , but it wasn’t worth it when it’s 95 out and the crazies are running around . They did fry up very nice though
