Crappie Fishing Technique What You Should Do

Many crappie anglers find a good challenge when fishing for crappie in tight underwater cover using a jig and bobber. This kind of fishing works very well early in the fall or spring. Especially on overcast days during this time of the year, you can find crappie abundant in submerged cover such as grasses. If you troll upwind of your target area and let your boat drift at its own rate, casting toward your intended area, then slowly reel the line in, you should have some luck. If it is a windy day, your bobber will naturally twitch, but if the wind is dead, you can manually stimulate this natural movement with slight wrist tugs. Most anglers fish heavy weeded areas pretty consistently, but try the smaller weeded areas as well, and you are sure to bring home a good catch.

Techniques for fishing crappie range widely. Realize that it takes a lot of unique factors to determine what the right method of catching them will be. Be open to trying several different things. If you get started early and are not seeing results, take the time to try a different method. Or, you may want to invest the time in hiring a crappie fishing guide to help you in an area you are unfamiliar with. The fact is, if the fish are not in the water, or you are not giving them what they want, they will not bite. The only way to know this is to try it out and to work with locals to help you a bit.
