Crappie suggestions

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has any crappie presentation/suggestions tips? I have not targeted them on my lake (Marion) but I know people fish for them? Any help would be appreciated!

I have a lot of crappie presentations.....you might want to get some good ones from someone else.

Sorry guys....couldn't resist the joke in that one.

Try minnows on noting bigger than a 1/16 oz jig. What I would do is find an area where the crappies are hovering over the weeds (15-18ft usually) and cast so that you are pulling the jig just over he top of the weeds. If it is windy and hard to keep the bait down at that depth putting a split shot or two about a foot above the jig helps alot. I hope this helps you!!!!!

GOOD FISHIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We've used a small spinner with a minnow (and a couple split shots) trolled over the same cover and depths Fish'n Guy mentions with some success on Star. Never fished Marion, but if you've got weed growth in that 11-15' area I'd say it should still work.

If you're hitting many weeds, you're too deep in my experience. I try to only pop an occasional weed.

I've been catching many of them on beetle spins or road runners in white or crayfish colors in the many lakes around Battle.

Can't beat the beetle spins tipped with the minnow or little rattling raps
