Arkansas lakes make list of 50 best crappie locations
SHERMAN OAKS, Cal. (AGFC) – Want to land some bragging size crappie? Maybe even break a current record? You'd be wise to fish the lakes rated by as the best in the country for oversized slabs.
Arkansas was well-represented in the list with six lakes in the top 50. Lake Dardanelle finished as the top-rated lake in Arkansas and number nine overall. Fishhound compiled its "50 Best Crappie Lakes" list after consulting with a host of industry experts, including veteran outdoor writers, professional crappie anglers, companies like Blakemore and Southern Pro, and organizations such as Crappie USA, Crappie Masters and Crappie Nation.
"We devoted considerable time and resources to develop this list based on feedback from some of the most experienced and knowledgeable crappie fishermen throughout the U.S.," noted Rick Patri, Fishhound's vice president, operations. "These are bodies of water that earned well deserved reputations for producing big numbers of fish as well as some real monsters."
The long-standing IGFA all-tackle world record for white crappie stands at 5 lbs., 3 oz. – a fish caught in Mississippi back in 1957. The all-tackle record for black crappie is a 5-pound fish caught from a private Missouri farm pond in 2006. However, records are made to be broken. And, when larger crappie are caught, chances are those fish will come from a lake on Fishhound's "Top 50" list below:
