3 Secrets for Crappie Fishing Lake Cumberland

Using a bobber can make it easier to tell when they strike. Once you get the feel of it, you’ll be able to tell when they take your bait.  You also have to be careful not to pull the hook through their mouths so don’t jerk too hard when you’re sitting the hook. You also want to make sure you use small hooks and bait so the crappie will be able to take it easier. If the hooks are too big they won’t even try to take your offering. Gear should always be matched up to the size fish you’re seeking out for the best results.

If you’re fishing in the same area regularly, you’ll notice that the crappie follow a certain pattern different times of the year. Keeping track of this pattern throughout the year will make it easier to find them each time you go fishing. You’ll already have a good idea of where to start your fishing adventure so you won’t have to waste time looking for them.

Anytime you go out on the Lake, you need to be prepared and follow all safety rules to make sure you can return another day. It’s best to never go fishing alone so take someone with you. Not only is it safer but it makes it more fun when you have someone to share the fun and excitement with. Wear your life vest at all times and make sure your boat is up to code. You never know when an accident will occur so it’s smart to always be as prepared as possible.
