If it's any condolence I still don't think a 10 pound bass would have any problem engulfing a 3 pound crappie.
I don't think there is any way in hell a 10lb bass could eat a 3 pound crappie.
A 3 pound crappie is gonna be 16" or better. A ten pound bass will be 26" maybe? The math doesn't add up there.
Guess you've never seen a 10 inch bass with an 8 inch shad lodged in his throat.
A 10lb bass will try to eat anything. Two years ago a guy found two floaters on Falcon, one was 11.5lbs, with a 4lber stuck in her mouth.
I dunno if a bass could get a 3lb crappie down, but they'll damn sure try. Believe me.
