Louisiana Crappie Fishing Tips and Methods

Crappie in Louisiana tend to spook easily, particularly in the spawn, so consider trolling past the areas where you know the crappie to be, and allowing yourself to drift back. Fish among trees in about three or four feet of water, give or take a foot. Attach your tiny hair jig to the smallest hook possible to effectively fish for your crappie (about a 4) and consider four pound fluorocarbon line since it is not so easily seen in the water.

When fishing these waters from a boat, it is seldom necessary to move your jig much. The simple rocking motion of the boat and waves will cause enough movement in your bait, so just hold the rod as still as you can, and wait for the bite! Both large sizes and large catches combine to make these areas in Louisiana among the top favorite prime locations for catching crappie year after year!
