Fished pickwick with my wife today. We had an great day. Caught a two person limit today. Fish were holding tight to brush. The water has cleared up some. Water temps in the upper 40's. Did better with whites and silver colored jigs today in the clearer water. Fish are still running smaller than last year but numbers are better. Did catch a few bigger fish today but still looking for some 2lbs ones like last year. The yellow stripe are plentiful if you don't mind catching them. Found a large school around 14 to 19 feet on a drop off ledge with a gravel bottom above the ledge close to steel bridge. Caught them for fun till time to go home after we limited out on crappiei.

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.
