6-7 lbs bass will eat that. An 18lber ate a crappie minnow on fork so it goes both ways.
Maybe so James but I have a theory on the 18# state record caught on a "crappie minnow"
I believe a crappie had bit the minnow and the 18 pounder bit the crappie.
I quizzed Barry St.Clair shortly after he caught the fish and he was tending 8 rods all in rod holders on his boat that day. The crappie bite was on that day in January. He was unhooking a crappie on one rod and turned around to see one of his other rods bent over double.
When he pulled the rod out of the holder he thought he had a big catfish until she surfaced. Did the current state record bite a crappie minnow? Maybe.... My gut tells me differently.
Way too many stories of crappie fishermen at Fork catching giant bass on a hooked crappie.
