A Guide To Catching Crappie In Rhode Island

Use fishing gear that will work the best. You will want a lightweight rod and an ultra light reel with a five or six pound test line. Crappies are not heavy hitters and you will feel the strike when they bite. The jig ounces should also be light. You do not want to weigh anything down when the fish bites. You want it light enough so they can take it and bite firmly to hook them. Keep the bait loose on the hook so it moves freely. This will work very well when fishing Watchaug Pond for the crappies.

You will need a Rhode Island fishing license that will be good for the year between March and the end of February. You can get a resident fishing license or a tourist license that will be good for three days. Keep in mind that if you plan to travel to Rhode Island more than once a year to fish, you should get the Non-resident fishing license and save money because the tourist fishing license is expensive if you buy it more than two times a year. If you are a member of the armed service, the license is even cheaper.

If you keep all this information in mind when fishing or planning to fish in Rhode Island, you will have a great experience and should catch your daily limit. Crappie fishing during the different times of the year proves to be a new challenge, but when you catch one to where the fish are and what there habits are, you can become a pro crappie angler in no time. It just takes a little time and you will be bringing home enough fish every time you head out for the table that night. Just get some gear and a boat, you will be ready to go.
