Crappie Fishing

Catching Crappie

Crappie can be found in just about ever freshwater body of water in the United States. Crappie can be found in large lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams as long as enough cover is available to sustain them.

Crappie, unlike other game fish, bite all year round. Fisherman catch crappie fish all year round by simply changing the area and bait they are using.

Crappie fishing is literally a sport for all ages. Bass and Stripers put up such a fight that a small child or weaker adult may just simply not be able to get the fish in. On the other hand, Crappie are often so gentle that you may have caught them before you even realize it. Because of the behavior of Crappie, no fancy equipment is needed. A simple cane pole, lightweight fishing pole, or even your children’s cartoon themed pole will catch a Crappie. If the experience of catching fish is what you crave, the crappie will put up a small, but admirable fight with a lightweight pole.

While the most popular bait for catching crappie is live bait, a variety of artificial bait is also available. Jigs, which comes in literally thousands of colors, shapes, sizes, and types can be changed for each unique situation and season.
