Bay Springs Lake Crappie fishing report

By Charlie - Posted on 18 March 2011

I got back out on the lake yesterday for the first time in a while. I caught a nice mess of crappiei hand poling a jig in shallow water (2-5 foot). I even tried the cork and jig method with some success. I am happy to see the color in the male crappie as it signals that great fishing is just around the corner.

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.
