    Congratulations, Zeb, and I hope you catch a lot more of them. They're good to eat, too.

    Remember, Crappie are a schooling fish. When you catch one set all your rods to the same depth or maybe a foot shallower, use the same bait and you should catch more. Never set your line deeper, crappie will feed upwards 90% of the time, very rarely will they go down for a bait.
