Live Minnows under a slip bobber in 12' water.
Congrats Mikey-D!Excellent Fish .What did they hit?
Greg and I each got a Slab Trolling Crankbaits through the basin and near the basin this summer and Fall.Greg's was 1#5oz. mine was 1#14oz. Greg's came suspended over 30 ' and took a Bomber 6A and mine was suspended in 14' but near basin water away from shore .That one took a Perch Pattern Shad Rap.
Happy to get 1st prize award for this Crappie : Check out Crappienow Magazine .Great articles and tips!
Thanks Slip , I dont know what it is this year .The Crappie at my the two lakes i fish the most just dont appear in the spots I have caught them in recent years . Here's my old Crappie Calendar of a Crappie from each month: http://bigbluegill.ning.com/photo/albums/crappie-calendar
nicely done Greg!... John I find them all year round on the 6-0 to 9-0 flats during the summer i find them even shallower.
Targeting with major interest in the b.gill I find the crappie mixed in with our numbers.
IMO crappie are driven by minnows where the majority of the time the food group is fixed in with the foods chain being churned up by the warmer waters,sunlight and weed growth.
In my area the deeper lakes stratify mainly at the 15-17 foot level and weeds stop growth at 10-12 so generalll they move into the weeds.
I read somewhere that crappies are defined as confined space type fish where they like gaps of weeds on a flat, trenches on a flat or the like.
I put up a couple videos lately where my son and I are mainly targeting the gill but I knew we would mix in a few of the crappies also… if we expressly were targeting the crappies we would fish more of the crappie like base baits like the 2” Power Minnow.
