Carl, Thanks, I will look forward to using all of those, plus some jigs that a very skilled and gifted artist sent to me recently. I'm planning to try to spider rig and troll to find them and then mark the spot and then hit them with everything I have to enhance my odds. lol

JW;;  BUDDY;; IF YO UNEVER CAUGHT CRAPPIES BEFORE;;;  IF YOU CAN FIND THEM;; YOU WILL HAVE A TON OF FUN !  KEEP THE NET HANDY !    JIGS;; MINNOWS;; AND FLOATS;; JUST A FEW WAYS TO GO FOR THEM !

John, I know the Great Lakes are getting stocked with Lake Trout, and a few of the bigger inland lakes are also stocked.  Which ones, I couldn't tell you.

I've never been able to taste a different between White and Black Crappie.

Comment by JWinpisinger on October 8, 2017 at 6:01pm

Thank you Dick, john and Carl!  I'm asking because I may have an opportunity to go after some in the coming weeks. One lake has white and the other has black predominately. 

Comment by carl hendrix on October 8, 2017 at 10:35am

JW;;   ANOTHER WAY TO PUT IT IS;; IS THERE A TASTE DIFFERENCE;; BETWEEN A REDEAR;; AND A BLUE GILL ??  NOPE !!  BOTH ARE EXCELLENT TABLE FARE !

Comment by John Sheehan on October 8, 2017 at 7:10am

I never caught or ate a White Crappie , so don't know . I think their usual diet is a little different which may make them taste a little different some times.

Comment by dick tabbert on October 7, 2017 at 10:18pm

Both the same I can tell no difference.
