Crappie Fishing has been a treasured pastime of generations of anglers! Back in “the day”, if you didn’t bring home a good catch, you might be eating a mayonnaise sandwich!
Crappie are fresh water fish and live in all sized lakes, rivers, streams and ponds across the country. There are both “Black Crappie” and “White Crappie” – and they live in the same waters, and both are quite delicious! The only difference is the coloration.
There a about as many ways to catch Crappie as there are anglers – but just about everyone agrees that the best time to go Crappie Fishing is early spring. This is when the spawn occurs and the water temperature has to be just right to set a good Crappie Fishing day on the right track. Fishermen – and women – use a variety of bait, but using live minnows is a good bet. Some say that about half of all Crappie are caught on live minnows. First of all, you’ve got to know where to find the Crappie. Then you’ve got to have the right boat, the right fishing pole, the right weight line, the right hook size. Then it’s about knowing the correct depth to fish, knowing how to detect a bit or a nibble – all of these factors play a very important roll in the success of your Crappie Fishing Trip!
