Georgia Crappie Fishing

When winter rolls around in Georgia, be prepared for depths of 45-55 feet for black crappie, with white crappie staying only a bit shallower. During these cold months, Georgia crappie fishing may taper off a bit due to the crappie’s lack of enthusiasm for feeding at this time of year. However, with good live bait, such as small worms, you may still find a good catch. Keep in mind that the fish will be sluggish in the cold weather, so you don’t want to move your bait around too quickly. Once you locate a deep school, be patient, and you’ll probably make a good catch.

Remember that white crappie prefer quiet backwaters found in the south, so Georgia crappie fishing, even in the winter, could turn up a good catch if you find some good backwater area to fish. Because it doesn’t get as cold in the south, it also assists in the ability to continue fishing for crappie as opposed to northern states, where lakes freeze and ice fishing takes over. That means that anglers in the south have a bit of an advantage, and because Georgia crappie fishing is a year-round sport, some anglers will vacation at lakes in Georgia during the winter just to get in a good weekend of fishing.

Georgia crappie fishing can be lots of fun with a great return for your effort, if you know what to do. Choosing the right bait and fishing at the right depth for the season makes all the difference in the world between having a poor day and having a day where you catch one right after the other.
