Greetings to my fellow crappie fishingi friends. I'm recently retired and hope to improve my ability beyond finding shallow spawning crappiei in the springtime. I have purchased a used 18' bass tracker that has an outdated depth finder and trolling motor. I'm a bit overwhelmed by the available electronic aids but know I need to upgrade to be fishing productive water.

I'm located in Blount County in East Tennessee, near several TVA lakes. If anyone in the group has an interest in sharing their wisdom, please respond.

Thanks for stopping by<. We are the site dedicated to crappie fishingi. We bring you tips and techniques from crappie country's top pros and the everyday fisherman not to mention the most complete information on crappie lakes from all around the country.

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, crankbaits 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.
