    I went out Thursday night on a reservoir and this is how I normally crappie fish because it covers all seasons except the spawn. I fish 30 foot or less of water that has deep structure and I like the structure to be pretty big. This is what I fished the other night 30 foot water fished 15 foot now with slp bobbers and minnows using a crappie light worked great caught a mess.

    I fished a small river last week and fished the tailwater below a old lock.I fished a current break in 2-5ft water and caught 2 messes in two evenings.
    I was using a slipfloat some and when that got cold I would change over to casting out and bouncing a minnow of the bottom using a couple splitshots as weight.I also caught a few sauger as well as drum,bass,and a small channell.:wink:

    When I was a kid we fished em off a dredge float in a gravel pit using minnows. Lately I have fished em in the weeds in up to 5-6 feet water with a minnow. Its good to fish at their depth, or a little less, they will come up for bait before going down. They will hit a crappie minnow, piece of worm, or artificial worm too. I usually catch em with a minnow under a slip bobber. I surprised my self and caught one on a dare devel trolling for northern pike last spring.

    i troll on the outside of weedlines, 8-12 FOW with 1/16 oz jigs(white jig head, red and white grub), trolling motor as slow as it will go any weather, hot or cold seems to work everytime. i also get some nice gills and perch doing this.
