Crappie fishing report for Columbus Tenn-tom 7-26-08

By Ray - Posted on 31 July 2008

I fished all day Sat 26th and half day Sun 27th. I tried trolling all day Sat in water everywhere from 16 to 8 feet deep. Got drenched in the rain but was better than burning up in the sun. I only caught 5 crappiei and only one of those was any size. Catfish kept me entertained. They were much more active than the crappie.
I got on the lake again Sun at daylight and trolled again in other areas off the main river. Again I caught only 4 crappie and they were small.
Tough weekend on the Columbus Tenn-Tom Waterway.

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.
