Ya Bulldawg that is a hog for sure! That thesouthern.com link you shared also has a picture of the state record 4.8# crappie caught last May on Kincaid just down Rt 13 from Crab Orchard. Time to head south? I have two kids that went to SIU. Those were great years and I have fished a number of those lakes over the years. We used to stay at Stone Creek GC just S of the campus on Rt 51 they have cabins and let guests fish the golf course pond - major bass thumb! Throw in some BBQ at 17th Street in Murphysboro or the Sunday family style fried chicken at the Giant City State Park Lodge now that's a great weekend.

Congrats! That's a nice bass for that area. I went to SIU before I transferred to the University of Kansas but had two good years of fishing and hunting down there. Sophomore year I pulled a 10 pounder out of Devils kitchen at the bottom of the spillway. Thought I had snagged a carp and was pissed. When he got about 10 feet away I saw mouth open and knew I had something big! Great area down there and that was one thing I missed after I transferred. I still miss those Giant City Friday night fried chicken dinners!
