Where I said:
10.5 -12 inches 3/4 to possibly one pound
Those fish might be 1/2 pound or less as well. Although I think I posted an "educated" guess, it is still just an estimate and definitely a guess. Weigh and measure what you catch to be sure!
In any case, get a good digital scale (around $30 +/-) and a crappie measuring tool for the questionably legal ones (about $7) to be sure you are legal on length and educate your eyes to "real" weights and lengths of the crappie you catch.
I think a lot of folks will find that they have grossly over-estimated their crappie weights and lengths once they "actually" weigh and measure their fish with accurate tools! Of course, we are talking about "fishermen"! LOL (grin)
Good luck and good fishin'
