I crappiei fished Columbus Lake this weekend. I had a good day and caught well over 30 crappie. The crappie were 8 to 11 foot deep and tight on the cover. I caught all of them on Crappie101 Hooker head and Cajun Cricket tail. I had 2 crappie over 15 inches and several over 14 inches. Looks like the fall bite is finally on.
Here is a picture of 2 over the crappie over 14". I released the 2 that were over 15".

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.
