Crappie Fishing In North Carolina Tips and Techniques

When crappie fishing in North Carolina you will use different baiting techniques depending on which season it is. For example, in the fall you should use live bait, spinners and crappie jigs while the winter month’s small worms should replace the spinners. When it is cold the fish can be found at deeper depths. In the winter they can be as far as fifty-five feet underwater. You will have to search for them a little harder than in the spring and summer months. Remember, when it’s cold they move a lot slower so you have to compensate for this if you want to have any luck catching the crappie.

Springtime is when the crappie will be spawning so they are usually easier to catch. They stay at shallow to medium depths and the best bait to use will be crappie jigs, spinners and live bait. In the summer months you can fish shallow in the morning and evenings while going deeper in the middle of the day. Use live bait, spoons and crappie jigs to catch the fish during this season. With these tips and techniques for crappie fishing in North Carolina you are ready to start fishing. So go out and have a great time!
