    A Granite Falls angler has set the white crappie state record, just three months after the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission opened a new category for the fish.

    Eddie Braswell reeled in the record-setting white crappie, which weighed 1 pound, 8 ounces and measured 14 inches in length, on Aug. 15 while fishing at High Rock Lake. He was using a Wally Marshall rod, Shimano 2000 reel and a Bass Assassin lure as bait.

    Since he retired from the Commission in 2004, Braswell fishes for crappie approximately 70 days a year, and starting in March or April, he tries to fish at least twice a week. While he fishes Lakes Rhodhiss, Hickory and Norman from time to time, he favors the crappie fishing in High Rock Lake.

    His latest catch is the biggest white crappie he has ever caught or seen, so he was anxious to get it in the boat, on ice and to certified scales to see if he had set the new record.
