First off I know I should have taken a better pic. Next time I will. eeks But, has anybody else caught crappie that are "blue" on their back rather than the predominant green. I caught one a couple years ago but lately I have been catching them with more frequency. Have caught probably 5 or 6 over the last month. I had another one today and my buddy had one that had a slight green tint but was more blue as well. They remind me of the old Bomber "crappie" color crankbaits that I use to throw bass fishing back in the 80's. Just curious if this common.

Have a pond with black crappie in it, most will look gold in color and then about every 20th fish you’ll catch a blue looking one.

How clear is the water where you were catching them?

I've seen them up North "yankeeland" and Florida "black" water crappie get that golden color.

It's fairly clear (2ft visibility) but not gin clear by any means. Haven't fished many lakes in North or East Tx but it is comparable to Palestine.

Great fish! Maybe it is what they are eating?

This color is very noticable in clearer water...not very well versed on the subject, but I have noticed it too...maybe one of our technical experts could come up with a scientific answer...Ken, Leanin Post...any ideas?

Many living in this generation shall never see the grave, JESUS gave us revelations and the time is very near. Dont be a soul that stands before GOD on judgment day and be told "depart from me, I do not know you".
REPENT, RECIEVE, REJOICE!!!

I thought those gave the fish their greenish iridescence because of the guanine.
