John Woods asked that I post these photos from our trip with him and his crew on last Thursday, Friday & Saturday 4/8-4/10. As you can see from the pics, we had great success and have already booked a fall 2010 return trip! He and his boys are good!

The weather on Thursday was brutal with an overnight temp drop of 20 degrees and 20+ mph winds which made for a fun, wet boat ride but we still managed 66 fish for the day!

On Friday, the temperature climbed back to the low-mid 60’s and the winds had settled down but the fish were more bashful so we only managed 60!

On Saturday, the wind was gone and the sun had returned. The am bite was slow but after we moved up the river a ways, we started knocking on ‘em hard with a total for the day of 80 fish. We now have crappie elbow! We managed several fish that were at or near three pounds and most were around two pounds.

Also, we were very impressed with the Mississippi on-line licensing service, the state park rental cottages and the boat ramps – we fish all over the Midwest and in Ontario and I think the ramps were the best we’ve ever seen. (It would be no problem to launch our own boat with our 40” RV) The cottages were clean and very reasonably priced @ $65 per night.

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.
