Probhat Palma caught a 3 lb. 2 oz. Crappie this week and stole the Lake Record Crappie title from his co-worker Mike Jagd. Mike held the title for a whole 30 days, with his 3 lb. 1 oz. Crappie!! This year we have seen the biggest Crappie and biggest Bluegill ever!! Live minnows is the most popular bait for Crappie, but they will also bite on a worm or mini jig. Bluegill are mainly caught on worms on a bobber and generally from a boat.
