Not sure who said what about shad and crappie and I'm sure not trying to start any debates.
During this time of the year, you'll see this more and more in my area. (Not just the big fish, small/barely keeper fish will have 'em.)
10.75" Black crappie:
Before removing the shad:
Three shad, one of which I accidentally cut in half:
One shad was 3.5", one was 3", and the other was so mangled I didn't bother with measuring it. I'm thinking it was 2.5" (or close to it).
Here soon, a good percentage of the fish we clean will be like this and often times they're gorged heavier than this one was. I couldn't find the other thread where someone requested pictures of this so if the size I'm showing isn't what you were looking for, please feel free to post again with the specifics for the picture ya wanted? Otherwise, I'm only posting this to help anyone wondering weather crappie will bite with a "full" stomach.
