Thanks for the tips on how you got that amazing amount of Crappie,Joe!

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.

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
