Water temp is at 62° and has dropped 14° in the last week and fish are starting to school up big time in the deeper water and also move to some very shallow structure. Bob and I both limited out (75 per boat) on our trips today. Wile there were no big fish yet, all fish ranged from 9" to 12". All caught on jigs in 10' to 13'.

We have had a couple of cancellations and still have a few days in October and November. Give us a call to book a trip 618-472-4763 Nick or 618-231-1417 for Bob.

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, crankbaits 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.
