James Morgan was fishing Bussey Brake for the first time in years after it reopened for fishing last summer. He has taken numerous big crappie from the lake in years past but hadn’t fished the waterway in quite some time. 

On Jan. 23, his reunion with his special crappie hole was rewarded with a longtime memory. While is was a cool wet morning, it didn’t take him long to get right.

He lowered a Jimmy Watt hair jig into some flooded brush and snatched a 3.32-pound black crappie on his 11-foot Ozark Rod

He weighed the fish on certified scales and if his application is accepted this will be the 6th largest black crappie ever in Louisiana.
