How Crappie Fishing at Night is Different

Using sensitive equipment will make it much easier for you to feel when you have a bite. Nevertheless, you need to stay alert to make sure you don’t miss a strike when you do get one.

Using the light of the full moon can make night fishing very enjoyable and productive. Try casting your line into the shadows for the best results and the opportunity to reel in the biggest crappies. Minnows, crayfish and worms are usually the best baits to use anytime you go crappie fishing because they are attracted to these the most. However, the crappie will eat just about anything.

There is also a variety of artificial baits that will work well when night fishing for crappies. It’s always a good idea to carry along a variety of baits in case they happen to be in a picky mood. So carry both live bait and artificial lures along with you on the trip and you’ll always have something new to try. Keep in mind that crappies have very thin mouths so you have to be careful when setting the hook or you’ll pull it right through the mouth.

Not only will this cause you to loss the catch but it’ll also injure the fish needlessly. It’s also important that you use small hooks and make sure they’re sharp and in good condition. Now you’re ready to go night fishing for crappies, have a great time!
