Five secrets for catching Alabama crappie

Always remember that the crappies can see very well when in clear water. This makes it easy to scare them off if you’re not careful. To keep this from happening to you, it’s suggested that you use the lightest gear possible depending on the area where you are fishing. It’s also a good idea to keep the talking to a whisper because loud noises will probably scare them away.

Even though you don’t need expensive gear to fish for crappies in Alabama, it’s always a good idea to invest in the best quality gear you can buy. You will get better service out of these and they will last much longer. Only use sharp hooks for the best results. A dull hook will make it more difficult to catch the crappie and could do lots of damage to their mouths. Smaller hooks are recommended for this species.

Take along a variety of hooks, sinkers and lures when you go Alabama crappie fishing to make sure you have options. You never know what kind of mood the fish will be in and what worked great one day may not work at all on another day. Variety is one of the keys to having a fun and productive crappie fishing trip.
