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.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
