Specks on the timber

Guide John Harrison took yours truly, uncle al and David Walls to Sardis for a new bait, test run. His new design by Mister Twister is going to be a good one. A natural, split tail, sparkle, shad was my favorite, especially for the big specks.
The water is low and standing timber everywhere with plenty of action, from large post spawn female white crappiei to the big Specks, that hit hard and keep hitting.

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.
