Tips for Catching Crappie in Brush

Fishing Techniques

You can catch crappie using any type of fishing pole, a hook, a bobber and minnows. For this reason many anglers don’t experiment very much by trying different gear and baits.

However, experimenting could prove to be very productive. For instance, some anglers enjoy using a light weight spinner rod and reel combined with a jig because they can be very effective. Bobbers can also be used with this set-up. Going crappie fishing on days that are overcast or when it’s drizzling a little in the spring would be better than bright sunny days. The crappie will be more responsive.

Flipping your jig is an excellent way to get your bait exactly where you want it. Using a sensitive light weight rod will work best when using this technique.

Try different color jigs to see which one works the best but normally red, green or chartreuse colors work very well. Crappies can be caught during any season but they are more plentiful during the spawning season.

Most everyone enjoys catching crappie because they are a fun species. They’re not very large so the average size is about one to two pounds but they can be a lively species that gets your attention. They are also one of the tastiest meals you will ever eat giving anglers another reason to go crappie fishing.

Fishing for crappie in brush should prove to be very productive. This is an excellent place for them to have a good supply of food so they can grow and thrive. Following the tips above can help you reel in a nice catch of crappie each time you go out. Have fun and good luck.
