Spring Fishing

Huck Finn's picture

By Huck Finn - Posted on 09 May 2013

Took my Dad fishing on Ky Lake. We ended up with 21 keeper redear and a dozen bluegill. Fish were caught with worms suspended below a slip-cork. Biggest redear was a 13" female.

Also, went to the Ohio River bottoms with my Son and youngest Brother. We caught about 20 bass (spots & largemouth) and 30 bluegill. None of the fish were that big, but we had a good time and we got plenty muddy. Fun Trip!

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.
