I'm starting to hate those trophy crappie regs. I fish Sayer lake a lot and everything up there last summer was 8.75". Makes it hard when the kids are expecting a fish fry after a day on the lake, lol.
I fish cross creek a lot at this time of year for crappie and blue gill I'm on the fence with the panfish enhancement program. Some years I catch a lot over 10 inches and some years I don't. I fish other lakes that don't have the restrictions and roughly have the same results. I do think that it being a smaller lake and high fishing pressure does save some fish to grow. At least for the honest anglers. I've seen quite a few sub legal fish leave in buckets while fishing there. Not in any of mine.
