Hi everyone. I am from Michigan. Hoping to pick up some help on fishing in the day. But on Ice, not seeing a lot of Ice posts! lol. Signed up for a NAIFC tournament and hope to learn day fishing. Do well on Crappie at dusk, not so hot in the day time. Thanks!

Well if anyone heads up here get with me. I live in the western part oh the lower state. I'd be happy to take any one out. I am set up to keep 2 warm. Can get another shanty and make it 4. More if you can take the weather. I'll post a few photos from last year. Ice is not to safe on some lakes. So the all nighter fish trips have not started.......yet.

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.
