3 Surefire Ways of Locating Crappie

These three surefire ways of locating crappie are sure to help you each and every time. When you go crappie fishing on a body of water and you want to come back with your limits and great memories of the day of fishing, try these methods of locating the crappie and you are sure to have a great fishing experience.

When you find a good spot full of crappie, it’s helpful to try to fish from the outer edges of your school. This is the best way to make sure you get the most fish from a single location as possible. Crappie schools are regularly on the move so if you fish one spot for a while and the bites seem to run dry, just move on to another spot. When the bites end, pull up and move on to another underwater structure that could be seeded with crappie.

The very same school you were just fishing from could have moved further ahead to another shelter and you can find them again and fish from this school for a bit more. When you find a school of crappie, your first step should be to find what depth they are holding. Crappie will school in a particular depth and the best way to find this is to start with your line at the bottom and then slowly pull up until you find the right depth where the school is sitting.

To help you find and hold your depth, you can mark the line with a magic marker and each time you recast you will know the exact spot where you found a bite before. With these tips and ideas you can become an expert at locating crappie.
