How To Locate Crappie Beds

More and more fishermen are using lures to catch crappie and having very good luck at it. If you don’t want to fish with live bait, for whatever reason, try feathered jigs and very small spinner bait. Noise does not seem to have much effect on the crappie, and neither does movement. The brush in which they live seems to move on its own.

You might want to move your bait gently from time to time, to attract attention, but usually the motion caused by the moving water is plenty of movement to make the bait appear naturally appetizing to the crappie you are seeking.

Now, there is the question that needs to be answered…should you invest in sonar to help you locate this type of fish or others?

Chances are good you have your own opinion on using outside sources to help you.  It really is a preference and budget choice to make.  For some anglers, nothing is better than naturally being talented and able to find the fish that you are after.  For others, just getting them in the boat is all that matters.
