New Lake Wister Record Crappie – 4 lbs!!

Lake Wister Oklahoma Record Crappie

When Lake Wister angler Jon Duvall and his cousin Clint decided to take a few youngsters fishing April 17, they ended up catching very few fish, but one reeled in by Duvall was a real whopper by any crappie angler’s standards.

Duvall’s crappie weighed 4.2 lb. and measured 17.75 inches in length, setting a Wister lake record not likely to be surpassed for some time. He caught the slab on a jig in the lower end of the lake.

Up to that point, only one crappie had been caught — one landed by Clint on the first cast of the trip. Though Duvall said that first fish was a nice crappie and the fishing party was excited about a potentially great fishing trip, the fishing did not pick up.

“We fished and fished, but caught nothing,” Duvall said “Finally, right before it started to rain, I caught the biggest crappie we had ever seen.”

Editor’s Note: WOW!! Now that, I think, is the biggest crappie I’ve ever seen!!!

Fishing is AWESOME!!!! White bass, crappie, largemouth and spotted bass are all biting really well right now. We are catching all species in good numbers. An average day is between 40 to 60 fish. I have only a few days left in this month, so if anyone is interested please call for availability.
