5 fishing for crappie secrets

Choose your colors carefully and use something suitable for the depth you’re fishing.

Using the crappie secrets listed above can help to increase the number of bites you get when crappie fishing, which in turn increases the odds of reeling in a nice catch.

The crappies can be caught from the shoreline or from a boat so anyone can take advantage of reeling in this species. They can also be found in all types of waters so no matter where you live you should be able to fish for crappies.

There are a number of different techniques and strategies that can be used to catch crappies. The one’s you need to use will depend on where you’re fishing, when you’re fishing and personal preference. You also need to take your skill level into account when deciding which techniques to use.

Crappies are a very active species and they will move around all the time. They tend to follow the baitfish wherever it goes but they also tend to follow the same patterns each season. The more you know about the habits of the crappies in your area, the easier it will be to find them and reel in a nice catch.

Keep in mind that this species has a small fragile mouth so you need to be careful when sitting the hook and pulling them to shore. Try sitting the hook with a quick snap of the wrist and use a net to bring the fish from the water to shore to take the weight off and reduce the risks of tearing the mouth.

Crappies can adapt and multiply most anywhere they’re introduced. For this reason, they’re classified as an invasive species and so different areas have different limits on the number of crappies you’re allowed to catch and keep. Some places have restrictions such as twenty or thirty crappie per boat, per day and others have no limit so you’re free to keep as many as you can catch on any given day.
