Late September crappie on Pickwick lake

By Radaroreally - Posted on 11 September 2012

My family and I will be spending the last week of September at Pickwick lake, as we do every year. I would like to take my boys crappie fishingi, and actually catch some. I know how to catch them here in south Louisiana, but can't seem to catch them there. Is there a chance someone could share some helpfull info about catching them there that time of year? Baiti? Depth? Area? We will be at J.P. Coleman. Any info at all would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Pickwick can be tough this time of year. Do a ton of moving and hunting with live minnows. If you can find a school you can slay them. Maybe try spider rigging around 16 to 19 feet around a drop off. Flats with any kind of cover in the 16 to 19 foot range can be good too. Move, move, move till you find some fish.

Helping control the crappiei population one trip at a time.

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
