Dale Hollow Crappie Fishing Tactics

When the wind is blowing it will also break up the clear water making it easier to catch the crappie. It’s important that you find the right depth to fish for this species. They will be suspended at specific depths throughout the lake and once you find this location, you will be reeling in the fish. If you need help finding the right depth, try using electronic devices such as the fishfinder to help out.

If using equipment is not practical for you, then you can always use the count-down method of measuring depth. You can also use some type of line marker or a slip-bobber to help you determine depth. It doesn’t matter what method you use as long as it’s accurate.

When crappie fishing in Dale Hollow Lake one of the best options for bait is the minnow. This is what the crappies are the most attracted to so it will always work great. You can also use bright colored jigs such chartreuse, orange, pink and red. Make sure that you use the smaller jigs when fishing for crappie. If they are too large the fish will pass it on by.

If you are new to fishing on this lake it’s advised that you get a map of the area so you can get a little familiar with it before you go out. Take some time to learn about the rules and regulations that govern this lake to avoid running into any problems. You don’t want your fishing trip to be ruined because you end up breaking a law that you didn’t even know existed.

You can also consider using a guide service to take you out on the lake. This has many advantages because they know the lake. They can take you straight to the hot spots and they know what works best and when. They also know which areas to stay away from so this can save you lots of time and aggravation. Have fun crappie fishing on Dale Hollow Lake.
