Crappie Fishing Tackle


Because Crappie is normally a pretty small fish, pretty much any pole will do. Sometimes, you may not even know that you caught a Crappie as Crappie do not put up an admirable fight like other freshwater fish do. So is important that you are paying close attention. This is also why you should choose a lightweight pole.

Trolling Motors

A popular Crappie fishing method is trolling. Trolling motors can be picked up at any fishing or outdoors store for reasonable amounts of money.

Fish Finders

Crappie can sometimes be illusive. If you do not like the idea of experimenting until you find a school of crappie, a better idea may be investing in a fish finder. No matter the type of cover in which the crappie are currently in, you will be able to find then with a decent fish finder.


The best stores available are Bass Pro Shops, Cabelas, and Gander Mtn. These stores always have a wide range of fishing equipment available, and knowledgeable staff willing to aide you in any decisions you may need help with. If any one of these three stores are in your area, I would recommend visiting them.
