where do crappie hang about this time of year????
I catch most of mine in shaded areas along the bank. cast at the biggest mess of brush you can find thats covered in shade..theyre there. They also go deep.
in minnesota they are hanging around 12 foot cabbage beds
10' to 12' here now in the brush mostly. When it gets real hot I drop shot the deeper channels keeping on the move. May be in the channels or close to the top of them.
Here on Pickwick lake they will be suspending in 12 to 15ft of water. But the bottom depth will be around 30 ft..
when theyre deep like that what do yall use? minnows?
In PA they love to hang around brush piles
Yes I use minnows. But I also use 8 16ft rods and have 4 hooks per rod. That allows me to cover 5ft of water with each rod.
At times it a job when you have 1 or 2 on 2 or 3 rods at one time. LOL
Summer makes them sliver sides hard to find and easy to catch.
Lots like pre spawn in that they get bunched up and Hang suspended in a deep water area close to structure and in as cool of water as you can locate.
I like to hunt them with the graph actually, if I can find bait fish the Crappie won't be far away. They are all hunting oxygen rich water .
Mornings.. early... and Evening from the time the sun come off the water, they will press up following the bait in to the shadows and darkness.
Fishing Current and using a drop light might work when you can't find them any other way.
Good Luck and get after them.
