I got this crappie fishingi report from John Harrison and Russ Bailey yesterday on Grenada lake. The guys were making a show on hand poling for crappiei for Russ's TV Series Midwest Outdoors. They started fishing a bit after 4 pm and quit at 6. The first fish they caught was a hog 2.37 pound crappie. They ended up with 10 keepers in 2 hours and the fish preferred 12 foot depth. The guys were using Southern Pro stingers in orange and chartreuse and pink and silver on Buck's ultra light 11'. There was a strong east wind often with waves coming over the side of the boat but they had a great time and got a show.

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.
