Yes, on Guntersville Alex and I haven't had the numbers of some past years, but the quality has been better. Several 2 pounders. Yes these were actually 2 pounders as we actually weighed them on digital scales. I only say it that way because at least some reports I hear about stringers of "slabs" in the 2 to 3 pound range are based on "guestimations" by people who have never actually weighed their fish. Not picking on anyone since I once was as bad for over-guestimating my crappie weights.
I am very good guestimating crappie in the pound +/- range, but when they get into slab range I use the digital scales to be sure.
Most of the fish are still coming from deep water, 18 to 25 feet and sometimes deeper. We still haven't found quality fish shallow in any numbers.
Good luck and good fishin'
