Three Florida Crappie Fishing Tips

This species can be found suspended on and around structures of all types. For the best results, you need to get the bait down where the fish are located but keep it slightly above the school. Their eyes are found on top of their head so if the bait is below them, they won’t see it. Crappies will be active both during the day and at night so you can seek them out at anytime.

If you have access to a boat you can go out and find some excellent locations where the crappie will be plentiful. However, you can have a lot of success fishing for them along the shoreline as well so don’t neglect taking advantage of this too.

When it comes to strategy, a lot will depend on where and when you go fishing. It will also depend on the type of water you’re fishing in, the water temperature and the season. Therefore, it’s a good idea to experiment every chance you get and try different things to learn what will work the best for you in any given situation.

It’s a good idea to start fishing along the outside of the school when you locate them instead of throwing your line right into the middle of the school. This way, you will be able to work your way through the school from the outside and catch more fish. If your lure drops in the middle of the school first, it might scatter them in different directions and you’ll lose a good opportunity to reel in a mess of crappie from that location.

Florida is a beautiful state with many excellent places to seek out the crappie. It’s a great way to spend some time enjoying the scenery and excellent weather with friends and family. Get out the next chance you get and do some Florida crappie fishing and enjoy nature at its finest.
