Three Best Crappie Fishing Trips

Ice fishing in the northern states is popular in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. You can also fish in Indiana or South Dakota. Upper Michigan has some areas close by hotels where you could try your hand at ice fishing. Wisconsin has many areas where you can stay at a hotel and fish the waters nearby.

If you want to do spring fishing, you can plan a trip to areas where the ice melts sooner and the water temperature warms quicker. The southern states are great for the earliest spawn, while the northern states will see a later spawn due to the longer winter times.

When you plan your crappie fishing trip, don’t forget to take along the gear you will need for that area. Although crappie fishing should be the same as everywhere else, things can be different. The bait that you use, the jigs and the presentation will vary. Be prepared and do a little checking with a local bait shop before heading out. You don’t want to get to your destination and find out, you should have brought long something that you never thought about for crappie fishing.

If you enjoy fishing for crappies when the weather is cooler such as in the fall months, you should make sure that the area water that you want to fish will be open for fishing. Some states and some areas have a set time for fishing and what can be fished. Although crappies are over populated in most area, you never know what to expect when it comes to state regulations and fishing licenses. Before you get your fishing license, make sure that you can fish the area for the fish that you want. Then find out the limits and any other restrictions.
