Just got done reading the posts on everyones favorite pan fish and thought we should start talking about finding some of these tasty little guys.
When I,m not chasing eyes I usually like to chase a few crappies. I only know a few spots one the river that they hang in but there has got to be some more spots out there.
Deep holes hold the fish for me and there has to be ether a steep ledge or some timber in the hole for them to hang on. If I find them on the structure i can usually pull some pretty good numbers of them out of it. The crappies can hold pretty tight to the structure. Sometimes it is an area half the size of the boat. I seem to find the crappies somewhere between 10′ to 20′ in these holes with some of these holes running alot deeper than that. I look more for the structure than anything else in them
I also have a spot that the crappies will come into at dusk and into the night. It is a sand bar at the south end of a point with a shallow backwater on the one side. This spot is only a couple of feet deep in most areas. It is a great spot to throw a lighted bobber out after them.
I was looking all over for some info on spring time crappies earlyer this and could not find any. I think this board is a great idea and hope to find some great info on it.
Good luck fishing
