Havent been to Arkabutla in probably 20 years. I always go to Enid. But after seeing some pics on here of some slab Arkabutla crappiei-i wanted to try it. So i went today. My father and I caught several huge slabs. I was shocked to see that the crappie were spawning. The spawning at Enid is over. The water temp was 65 degrees. Several of the crappie i brought home had eggs. We caught ours mainly in a creek, close to a shallow flat. There were alot of people on the bank wearin em out. They caught more than we did. We also got a nice bass and a cat. We were casting with road runner jigs.

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.
