    I know that in the spring of the year when it is still pretty cool the crappie bite is on like crazy. Is it the same for the fall of the year?

    Fall bite can be just as good. Even better in the winter. Time to be out is NOW.

    I like fall crappie fishing best. they are putting on feed bags and biting like crazy, the cool weather is a relief from summer, and with the leaves changing it is just great to be out there.

    Fall fishing is great its almost the same pattern during spring time. Right now their getting their gut full for winter time. I catch most of mine 2 to 3 pounders from december to february. Their normally anywhere from 1 to 3 feet deep depends the sun.

    Fall is the best time to catch slabs, and all winter the fish will bite.

    Just got back from the lake. It was rainy and bitterly cold. I caught 30-40 crappie in about 3 hours fishing off the docks. They were all near the surface. anywhere from 1 foot to 3 feet down. I caught them on the bank and out in 25 feet of water. but all near top. caught them a plain jighead and red tube jig.
