catching post spawn crappie

I have found a large number of fish located in the bend of a river at 15 feet. The reservoir i am fishing is called Chickahominy lake located in Virigina. It is a river that is damed to create an impoundment. The majority fish in the lake is Crappie, so I assume the echoes I am seeing are crappiei? Any help in the techniques to catch these fish would be most appreciated. Thank you.

Match the hatch - truth or bull?

On another crappiei forum, I've been in a debate that mimicking a specific forage is not necessary when it comes to catching any fish, including crappie. What is the consensus of pro anglers?

Question about my boat

I have a polished aluminum boat sides are very shiny and bottom so so. Does anyone think that would affect your fishing or trolling as far as scaring off the fish? Thanks

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.
