Ohio River Fish

Huck Finn's picture

By Huck Finn - Posted on 22 December 2010

Went to the river today. The water has cooled off to about 40 degrees and it had that fish green color. I used 1/16 oz jigs for the skipjack and 4" swimshads for the stripers. The skipjack is my favorite catfish bait and I caught a cooler full in about 1.5 hours. Some of the skips went about 2.5 lb. The rest of the afternoon I fished for the stripers and caught about 20-25 fish with the biggest going about 15lb. All the rockfish and hybrids were released, fun trip. Note: My Crappie-101 hat fits just perfect thanks again Ray.

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.
