What method will catch crappie in the most popular Arkansas bodies of water?

Crappie are amazing fish, there is no doubt about that. You will find them heavily available in many of the bodies of water located in Arkansas as they are one of the largest number of fish located throughout the United States. Here are a few tips to help you to improve your chances of catching the elusive crappie fish. If your crappie are deep enough, say eight to fifteen feet deep, you will find that vertical fishing can be an excellent choice for snagging them. You will find that when they are this deep, they are easier to catch because they do not mind the boat overhead. This allows you to drop jigs and slip bobber rigs down the side of your boat to their location. You may also consider casting into shallows like you would if you were bass fishing. This is helpful because crappie like to remain covered, hiding from what’s after them. To accomplish this, use small jigs, crank baits and spinners in waters that are shallow, along the shoreline. Do be careful to avoid the snagging of your line here. Another option to use for crappie fishing is to use trolling. Trolling slowly in open water with your electric motor or drifting can be one of the best methods. You may want to consider spider fishing which means using several rods over each side of the boat. You are likely to get some bite from them then. When looking for crappie in Arkansas waters, be sure that you spend some time fishing with those that have experience. The fact is, many of these locations are perfect for fishing, if you know where the fish are.
