time to break out the summer rigs?

Hey guys, I want to fish for crappiei on Picwick this year and Ive read here you guys pull plugs to catch fish, can ya help me with the set up? What size and type plugs should I buy.

How are they rigged? I used to pull plugs for stripers on Priest Lake in Nashville. We tied a 3 way and 2 leaders. the Plug went on one and a rooster tail or grub would go on the other. Tie the line and troll.

Thanks in advance guys and good luck!

Rick give me a call we used to do alot of crankbait trolling several years back on pickwick and bay springs. We quit them several years ago but they do target the bigger crappiei more than anything I've done. I'm hooked on a single pole and a jig but still remember what crankbaits we used.

Helping control the crappiei population one trip at a time.

A distinct layer of water where rising warm and sinking cold water meet but do not mix. It is a layer of water where the temperature changes at least one-half a degree per foot of depth. In many of our desert bass lakes, a thermocline often develops during the spring and breaks down in the fall. The colder layer of water is often lacking in oxygen, forcing most baitfish and sport-fish to the upper layer of water. Thermoclines can be so dense that they actually show up on sonar (fish finders and depth finders) as a thick, impenetrable line.
