crappies during the day

5 posts in this topic

Ive been having a tuff time finding the crappies during the day all my fish are being caught right at the evening, me and my buddy weve been movin all around all different depths, been fishin out of canoe, we can only find them in the shallows right before dark any suggestions would be appreciated,also weve tried numerous tactics, jigs, plastics, minnows, spinners , all seem to work but only in the evening, its like the bite is only for a half hour or an hour, I guess I would like to catch more then four fish a peiece. But maybe Im being gready.?

I've been productive on finesse jigs with a small finesse, non weighted bobber about 1.5' above the jig. Ive been catching nice 10" ers all day long on that rig. There was a good article about this rig in the February NORTH AMERICAN FISHERMAN magazine, page 29. I beleive it was called the FLOAT & FLY.

I catch them slabs all day long, morning, afternoon, evening using jigheads, plastics, flu flu's.

I find them in the shallowest waters in 1ft to 3ft depth. When it becomes night fall I use a shallow mini stealth bobbering technique in water as shallow as 1ft. Some fish may be shy of the night glo bobbers and I wont use it unless the fish are really active.

      Hello guys I'm new to this site and sorta new to the area. We do not yet have a boat so the family is trying to find some decent shoreline fishing in the area. Has anyone heard any shoreline reports?

      Saturday found the panfish deep in the morning, not a fish on the shoreline to be found. By late afternoon the shorlines were packed with panfish.  Crappies just now are actually on beds.   Bluegills are have not yet started to fan nests.  The big seriously fat females are thick shallow, only a few bulls hanging around at this point.   This is for the area near Walker/Hackensack.
