I always heard 5 acres but our relative has a 2 acre lake with crappie but they are stunted and thin.

Of course it’s more predation on your bass forage but if you enjoy the crappie, I’d give it a try.

Small lakes are so unique. Exceptions exist to so many of the “rules.”

As long as there is plenty of shad and some good bass, it will probably work. No guess on the right number to start with.

Crappie are versatile critters. There is a runoff drain from my community lake that has a max depth of two inches. Me and the Butte boys went on a critter hunt with our nets and found dozens of 1 to 2 inch long crappie in there. My guess is that they were washed out of the lake as eggs or tiny fry. All were successfully reintroduced to Lake El Butto.
