3 Secrets for Midwest Crappie Fishing

Use Multiple Rods – If you choose to fish with several rods at one time (like so many anglers do) then get the most from using this technique. Never prop up your rods along the side of the boat or along a pier railing. If you do this, it can cause them to get tangled up and you’ll end up with a mess. They can also be damaged and you may even lose one or two of them in the water.

Instead, invest in some good fishing rod holders and use them correctly. Use different baits on each line and fish at different depths with each one. Use bobbers so you can keep up with the lines better and this will help you to know when you’re getting a bite.

The secrets listed above can make a difference when fishing for crappies in the Midwest or anywhere else for that matter. A good angler knows that you have to adapt to the environment in which you’re fishing. Things change all the time and there are so many different things that will affect the way the fish respond. Some of these include the weather, the season, the depth of the water and even the time of day in which you go fishing.

No two fishing trips are alike but you can make the most out of all of them by using the 3 secrets for Midwest crappie fishing listed above and doing some experimenting of your own. They will work for any time of year and for any type of water so it doesn’t matter if you’re fishing in a lake, river or pond.
