crappies during the day


Recommended Posts

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.

      As crazy as that might sound, May 18th isn’t a bad guess.  We were on the lake yesterday and had somewhere around 30” of solid ice with some snow on top.  This is hard January-type ice.  No honeycombing, no chipping or slush.  In fact, my Dewalt hammer drill couldn’t take it.  It’s dead.   Another foot of snow on the way this week?  That won’t help.

      Try the area where Minnehaha Falls runs into the river up to the ford dam. I've just used jig and fathead. Been several years since I've fished down there, but saw a lot of people shore fishing there. Pretty snaggy down there.

      Never tried it down there, sounds like fun. Let us know how you did.  👍

      Entries sure rolled in when I offered the case of beer.  We could meet at my Stuntz Bay boathouse if that would work.  Close to the landing, could anchor in front of the boathouse, or could park your vehicle at by the boathouse.  Maybe we could require the winner to be present, LOL.

      Thinking about trying pool 2 (from shore) for the first time tomorrow morning, ideally looking for walleye. Anyone know any decent spots or what kind of baits I should use?   Thanks in advance

      I know the owner.  In fact we rode snowmobiles together a couple days after the fire.  He lost most of his belongings.  Sounds like it was electrical.
