As January gets out of here most of the hunting Opportunities in Virginia are done for another season. Alot of guys are Slamming the Blue Cats on the James and Potomac Rivers. For me I turn my attentions to some fine Crapie fishing available here on the river and at a local lake. Slabs in the cooler, man not much gets better than 20 or 30 slabs on ice just waiting for the Pan. Lets here how, when and where you get yours. For me I like to jig fish deep structure in February. I use mini tubes in a Red and White Combo. 1/6 oz Jig head Round 4# mono or 2# braid with a Mono leader. I fish 15 to 30 ft around Bridge pilings and deep water rock piles or deepwater docks. I follow them into early spring as they transition into shallower water to spawn. Fine eating and fun for the kids. Minnows on slip corks or drop shoting minnows are great fun for kids as well as adults. When they get biting good dont forget to Take a kid or two with you. You won't regrewt it.
