Some Basic Information We’ll Need to Know


  •           Fishing in the right depth, right color, right speed means Crappie. We start out with a variety of colors and shapes of jigs
  •           Water color plays a part in determining the crappie feedings. Crappies go by seeing the food. If they do not see it, they will not eat it.
  •           They say fish see a variation of colors in waters and brightness of levels. This may be why fish no longer go after a color that was biting and no longer are. Now plain waters, we use clear jigs. Poorly lit or muddy waters, we use illuminated jigs with non lighted combo jigs.
  •           Now for casting, we use jig-n-bobber method This is where we fasten the jig anywhere 12in to 48in below the float. We are aiming for the jig to be a bit higher from the fish. We can also just drop the line to the depth, reeling it up slowly.Now let’s find the best crappie fishing jigs
