According to some information recently compiled by officials with the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, a six-inch black crappie that weighs 0.1 pounds will be, on average, 2.1 years old. A white crappie (distinguishable because it has five or six dorsal spines, compared to the black’s seven or eight) of the same length and weight will be 1.9 years old.

A nine-inch black crappie that weighs 0.4 pounds will be 4.2 years old. A white crappie of that length will probably weigh 0.3 pounds and be 3.8 years old.

At fourteen inches, the typical black crappie weighs 1.7 pounds and will be 14.3 years old. A 14-inch white crappie will be 1.4 pounds and 9.1 years old.

And a 19-inch black crappie, like the one that stands as the state record fish• It will have been swimming around for about 19 years.

I'm sure I depends on the part of the country you live in, Southern states with warmer water will have faster growth rates.

I saw that on the web also. I just have to figure out when I will be re-catching the 100 6 inch crappie yesterday. And when will they be 10 inch or bigger.

Crappie grow much faster in the south than they do up north. Fish have a year round growing season down here. My understanding based on articles I’ve read is that crappie don’t live much longer than 4-5 years down here.

It depends on the lake, as well as the region. There is a lot of nutrient rich lakes that will churn out fast crappie growth. As I recall, a 7 or 8 year old crappie has lived a full life, and in a good lake in our region they will be huge. If I had to guess, Sirjet, A six inch crappie will probably be around a year old.

scruboak, you know me and you only catch 9 3/4 fish only. I think that is the law.
