Got a chance to fish this last tuesday starting around 12:00, caught the 1st 2 of my 6 nice crappiei on the edge of river in water from 8 to 14 feet deep. I then went into slough water 6-8 feet deep and caught the other 4 plus 6 eaters. Fish on bottom is 15" next to it is a 14 1/2" then 3 14" fish and last a 13 1/2 fish. Best 6 fish that i have caught in a long time, all hit a black body sparkle chartuese tail jig body. (pictures to follow)

specfisher1, i think my new di fishfinder is sort of like a lying squirrell dog, it see fish in every brush pile HA! But i am enjoying the up front di, now if could come up with something (like a pole on a swivel) to put transducer 8-10 feet in front of boat rather that mounted on trolling motor, that way could find brush etc. and not be on top on them, any suggestion?????

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.
