Early Morning Crappie

Roper Outdoors's picture

By Roper Outdoors - Posted on 04 January 2011

Excitement was in the air as anglers competed for a shot of going to the Cabela's Crappie USA Classic. Team Roper began fishing as the clock struck 6:30 AM. Their poles were equipped with Vicious Line, 8 pound test. They pitched a green jig head tipped with a minnow under a Trout Magnet float near the bank. In less than two (2) minutes they had their first crappiei in the boat, they fished until 5:30 PM. They found a cove with calm water because the wind was going to be high on tournament day. As the team came into the cove they started fishing around shrubs near the bank. To their surprise, the crappie were here,
and I mean big ones. After catching five (5) crappie from that area they both agreed to leave the spot alone until tournament day. Tip: Don't pressure the area that you're going to fish in on tournament day. Catch two (2) to four (4) fish from that
area and move on.

We knew that crappie and bass feed almost the same way, shallow in the morning and in the evening. It was late in the evening and we knew that if they were on the bank now, they might be there in the morning. Believe it or not, they were there. We caught our limit before 8:30 AM.
