Our fish have moved out to the secondary breaks now with crappiei suspending in 16-20 feet of water and suspending at about 12'. This is the time of year that we see the fish suspend over our structure units. Dark colors producing best at dawn/dusk. Purple jigs tipped with minnows are the prefered choice for slabs.

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.
