I learned last fall that by fishing deep structure, big structure that I could pull crappie in for alot longer period of time then alot of other people that just waited for them to come shallow. I learned this the hard way by going out and fishin the trees stumps and varying my depth but would only catch around 5-10 crappie because they werent really in there and alot of other people werent doing well. Then I went out into the main lake and looked for large structure on the depth finder and started fishing that way with slip bobbers and minnows from 14-21 feet and started catching around 50-125 crappie but I was fishing hard. Very big difference so if your like me and dont really know that much about crappie fishin when I started fishing the deep structure it payed off and I didnt really have to move at all except for two different spots. I fished like this for about 7 weeks through the fall and it was about the same every trip.
