The crappiei are really starting to bite with the onset of this warm weather. Good fish are being caught in the Champy Pocketi, Keystone, Gooch, Lamb's Bar area. Fish are holding in 6-10' of water with a few being caught deeper and shallower. Good fish are also being caught in the Kirby Pocket area as well.

Caught several really good 1#+ males today in the Moultrie Field area till the wind blew us off. The water temp was 66 in 6' of water. Fish were caught on Capps/Coleman rigs with plain shiners. Moved over to the Rat Island shoreline and caught some decent fish till we had to leave. Heard of a decent number of fish being caught jigging the trees and grass over tha last few days.

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.
