Crappie Fishing Tackle – What Type Of Tackle Is The Best To Use For Catching Crappie?

If you fish for crappie with minnows most of the time, a smaller, more compact tackle box should do nicely. If you use minnows and jigs, you might need something a little more versatile. It might tend to be larger and might cost slightly more. One thing to consider is whether you really can, in the long run, limit the tackle you take with you. Sometimes fishermen want to downsize when they need new tackle boxes, then later wind up having to make another purchase, so they do not have to leave their favorite tackle behind, after they decide they can just not do without it after all. Better you should make that determination before the purchase, rather than having to buy twice because your initial purchase does not fulfill your needs. No matter whether you decide on a small or larger tackle box, one that is made of composite material or cloth, over and under construction or tilted tray models, you should be sure you have enough room for the hooks, bobbers, sinkers, and line you like to have handy.

If you really want to know what is going to get those fish biting, stop and talk to the local tackle shop owner. This is not those big box stores selling thousands of different pieces. Instead, look to the small company that you can walk into and talk to the owner. They will not only know what the best crappie fishing tackle is, but they are likely to tell you where the best fishing hole is, too. Furthermore, they are usually going to have all of the advice you need to get started. Make this a must when you are heading to an area you are unfamiliar with.

When choosing Crappie fishing tackle, just be prepared to adapt to the more fragile mouth structure by using thinner, smaller hooks, be prepared to use bobbers to keep your line at the right depth and provide you with the ability to know when you have a bite, because these fellows often have your line before you can feel even the slightest tug. Just plan ahead, choose wisely based on where and when you plan to fish, and happy fishing!
