I had to come give the crappiei at Arkabutla a try after Ken said he caught a few. Warren Cotton is with me and we are having a great time out here on the muddy water.
Got 16 so far and still working at it.
Updated: Ended up with 18 keepers.
Slow trolling double minnow rigs was the method and bait.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
