Bass angler catches new lake record crappie at New Melones

ANGELS CAMP — Crappie may be far and few between at New Melones this time of year, but when you find them, “expect the unexpected,” observed Gene Hildebrand of Glory Hole Sports.

While bass fishing at New Melones on Nov. 15, Josh Parris, a San Andreas fishing guide, definitely caught the “unexpected” — a new lake record crappie weighing 3.47 pounds. Eric Ochos held the previous lake record crappie of 3 pounds, 4 ounces that he caught off shore while fishing a minnow at Tuttletown in April 2018.

“I was looking for bass for a guide trip the following day — fishing 40 to 50 feet deep in the main body off long points and underwater drop offs,” Parris explained. “I was using a P-Line Laser Minnow ¾ ounce spoon when the big crappie hit.”

It had to be a big crappie to eat a 3/4 oz spoon!
