went today, used a white/chart midsouth tube with 1/4 white head. I only put 3 in the boat by 1p.m.

Got skunked today at Coffeen. Contrary to the rumors going around, the ramp is open, only the small coves have ice. Water temp was between 37 and 40 degrees. Got bites in submerged brush, 5' deep on minnows. Kept getting snagged on way up and line kept breaking (never happened before). 5 straight line breaks and I wrapped it up. We never put a fish in the boat. Power plant has not been running, but was today. May be a good place next weekend.

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.
