Please tell me how to catch a crappie fish

Before you do anyhting, talk to someone that knows the waters and which ones have crappies. The Internet can tell you if there are crappie waters in your area. Look by weed beds, underwater deadwood, and rock structures and by sand bars. The fish do stay closer to the shallow waters more so than what other fish do, but fish the shorelines about 5 feet out in the early mornings or late evenings. If you use the correct bait and get the right place on the water, you can have a great day of crappie fishing. Crappies are abundant in some waters as long as the water has a good food source and is not over populated. When the water is over populated, more fish die off and the size of the fish is smaller. The fish can only grow to a good size if there are enough food sources. When the food source is scarce, the size of the fish is stunted. After you find the right location to fish crappies, you have to cast your bait and the fish will come to eat. The ideal time to start looking for the crappies is after the spawn and during the early summer months before the water warms. Then again in fall right before winter when the fish move deeper as the water cools. Keep in mind that you should use shad or minnows as bait. Make sure that the bait is alive and you should have some success catching the crappie.
