Some real nice craps you got there John. Those are the fish crappie masters wait patiently for.

  • Those were from about 4 weeks ago.. I tend to fish crappie with ‘Tip  Downs’. This past open water year I focused on a lake that doesn’t receive much pressure/attention. Found as many weed beds as I could throughout the year up until about end of November. Came back early ice December 18th here (2.5” of ice). Landed on a Crappie bite that lasted about 2 weeks. Caught over 100 fish in 3 outings. Put most back kept about 25. Weed beds were about 17’ deep with weeds up to about 10’ kept the baits on tip downs anywhere from 1 foot to 4’ above the weed tops.  We can run 3 lines per person here in WI so I usually fish 1 jigging rod and either 2 Tip Ups for pike/walleye or 2 Tip Downs for crappie/perch/walleye. And yes  you can’t beat cold water crappies and gills.
