Hey Kent, glad you and your mom caught a few, but I am going to have to burst your bubble a little.
If the crappie were indeed 14 and 14.5 inches long, they were no where near the 3 pound mark. I am assuming you didn't actually weigh them. It is a common mistake to over-estimate crappie weight. I was guilty of it myself until I actually started weighing them on accurate scales. Now I am pretty accurate at guestimating crappie weight and a 14 inch crappie won't weigh 3 pounds. More likely is was in the 1 pound plus range. Possibly up to 1.5 or 1.75, but nowhere close to 3.
Good luck and good fishin'
