Yellow Creek


By PRAIRIEOUTLAW - Posted on 26 February 2012

New to the forum and new to the area, but not to crappie fishingi. Usually spend most of my days on Sardis Lake, but now living in Selmer so I'm wanting to start chasing crappiei on Pickwick. Anyone got any suggestions as to where to start in Yellow Creek to find a few slabs? I've got a pontoon and a Polar Kraft rig as well, both can be set up for spider rigging or crankbaits. I also like single pole jigging so I'm open to whatever is working at the time.
I'd really like to take my parents out and send them home with a nice mess of Crappie next weekend so if anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears.
Thanks in advance for any information, and hopefully I'll see some of you guys on the water one day.


Thanks for the information. I'm looking forward to getting to know the folks that love to chase the slabs around here. Maybe I can give everyone an update on what its looking like after the weekend.

Side troll south of Goat Island. Indian and Bear Creeks are much better. Go catch a limit! JBULL

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.
