Spring Crappie Fishing Is Getting Better and Better!
I have been having a blast this early season crappie fishing with a lot of luck. I think its because of the winter we just had but I thought I'd come on and tell you guys what's been working for me. Water temps seem to have made the biggest difference. Ive been fishing closer to shore where the sun has had a chance to warm up the shallows. I also utilize a slip bobber because I tend to work the shallows this time of year. This allows me to adjust my depth quickly and adapt to the weed beds easily. Fishing this time of year is usually pretty windy so use it to your advantage. Cast upwind and let the wind take your bobber down along those weed beds. Use that slip bobber and move it 6" at a time to find that hot zone the crappie are being active in. I really like using a small gold or a small wonder bread jig. My preferred bait is usually a small pink or white plastic chigger fly. As long as it has a springy tail, it will work. I've tried using different scented plastics and I dont notice much of a difference.
