Ken Franklin and his grandson Brandon were back out on Arkabutla Lake pulling those crank baits yesterday. They caught a nice mess of keeper crappiei.

Man your killin' me with those crankbaits. My crankbaits haven't seen the water in several years though I am still not ashamed to drag them out. Crankbaits really do target the biggest crappiei in the school. We caught lots of crappie on crankbaits in years past. Mann's 15+ were killer on Bay Springs and Pickwick. Didn't require any weights or downrigging. Caught my biggest crappie and bass that way.

Helping control the crappiei population one trip at a time.

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, crank baits 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.
