Advice For Fishing For Crappie In Farm Ponds

You can cast your bait and reel it in slowly to catch a crappie. You will want to use a lightweight test line and reel. You only need about a six-foot rod with an ultra light reel. You will want to make sure you have the bait the right size for the crappie size. You do not want to offer something to large if the crappie is stunted in growth. You should offer bait that will fit the size of the crappie. There are many variables to consider when fishing in farm ponds.

Crappie fishing can be exciting and you can get enough for a mealtime, but if you fish on a farm pond, you will probably have to catch a lot of them to make a meal. You would be better off finding a crappie lake nearby and fish there instead of trying the pond fishing. You will have some full size fish and they will make a good table meal. You have to use caution when fishing on these small ponds.

If you need to fish on a farm pond, you can talk with the owner first to find out what size the fish is in the pond and what they are fed. Then you can find out what other fish are in the pond. These questions will help you determine the best way to fish and what to use as bait. You will need to have as much information as possible before deciding to fish any farm pond. If you are deciding to start a farm pond for fishing, crappie are not the right fish to stock the pond with, but bass, bluegills and catfish are excellent for farm ponds.
