Tyler and I fished Columbus lake this morning for about 2.5 hours. That is how long it took to get pretty hot. We caught 10 nice crappiei and kept us 6 to eat for supper. We caught these fish hand poleing in 6 to 8 foot of water and they were all caught on Slimy jigs. I check the stomach contents of each of the 6 we dressed and they had shad in them. Looked to average 3 in each and about 1 inch long. I could not find a trace of anything else. Water temps were 88.

Those are some really nice slabs. How much does your guide Tyler charge?

He works pretty cheap. Sleeve of crackers, 2 cans of Viennas and 2 Yahoos and he will fish long as you want. We had a great time. Tyler would swim a little about every 30 min then fish. Kind of funny.

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.
