Great Spring Crappie Fishing Techniques and Tips

Spring Crappie Fishing Tips

When spring crappie fishing you need to make sure you give the fish what they want if you expect them to bite. When you find a school of crappie you should take a few minutes to see what type of food they are feeding off of naturally and match this as closely as possible. Make sure you present your bait in a way that gets their attention. You can do this by getting it as close to the fish as possible and by making sure it moves slowly where they do not have to put forth a lot of effort to catch it.

When the water first begins to heat up the crappie will stay close to the structures in the water and they will move very slowly. The warmer it gets the further out they will swim to catch food. Keep in mind that most of the time, all crappie in the same area will range very close to the same weight and length. Therefore, if you are not happy with the size you catch first, then you need to go ahead and search for a new spot. Most likely, you will not get a bigger size with the next bite.

You have to be flexible and willing to make changes when necessary if you want to be successful at spring crappie fishing. How can you expect to catch crappie regularly using the same technique and same fishing hole day after day? The fish are changing so you have to change as well or get left behind.
