MDC seeks public input on regs for crappie fishing

Wappapello – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is seeking public input on a possible regulation change for crappie fishing at Wappapello Lake in Wayne County to both allow anglers to keep more crappie and promote more consistency in the quality of the fishery.

Wappapello Lake is a popular fishing location in Southeast Missouri. According to MDC, crappie are the most popular fish sought by anglers fishing the lake.

Under the existing MDC regulation, anglers may harvest a daily limit of 30 white and black crappie combined with a minimum length of 9 inches. Under the proposed regulation change, there will be no minimum length limit for crappie. The daily limit will remain at 30 crappie, but not more than 15 of those fish could be above 9 inches.


Powell wins three in Senior Olympics

Bobby Powell

An Ironton man entered four areas of competition in the recent St. Louis Senior Olympics and won first place in three of them.

The competition was held at the Jewish Community Center in Creve Couer from June 24 to June 29.  Powell’s events - the softball and football throw - were held on Memorial Day.

“I started practicing about a month (before the competition),” he said, “but I had only one practice throw before they said it was time to begin.  I got up there and I thought I had five throws, so I was gradually going to work my way up to it.  Turns out, we got only two throws.”

Nevertheless, he managed to fling the softball 130 feet to win the ages 75-79 category.  Powell is 76.

“Two weeks before the competition I threw the softball 150 feet on a local field,” he said.

He also won first place in accuracy, hitting a target at two different distances.
