Question above? just cant remember
DON'T KNOW ABOUT MISSOURI.BUT IN SOUTH LOUISIANA THEY ARE TURNING ON NOW.
Her in Kentucky you can catch them right now too, during summer time I like looking for places that has trees in the water and fish around them alot of time you can find croppie around them
been biting in ohio all winter long. all the rain is slowing my fishing for them now! rollo
Here is Texas they have been biting pretty good for the past 3 weeks. Have been cathing in water between 15 and 25 feet. Most productive around 20 feet. Weather is starting to warm so soon they will be up shallow.
In missouri I always think, Spring turkey season, crappie biting and morels are popping up.:wink:
As a rule of thumb, when the redbud trees in your area blooms, the crappie are beginning to move in to spawn. Generally the larger fish spawn first.
When you can't take the cabin fever any more! :wink:
they never stop here, iceum all winter.
These last couple of years I have actually caught more crappie in the winter than I have in the spring. This year was an exception, my boat hasn't seen the water since the first part of Oct. After I got done deer hunting the weather turned nasty and I'm just now getting around to going. I caught some in a farm pond right after ice out. Used a jig about a foot deep under a bobber and reeled it in just as slow as possible. This has worked for me many times. If the weather warms back up I'm going to try and go on Tues.
So far I'v caught around 100 crappie in 5 trip's.I was fishing the river till we got all this rain..all 10 inch's or over.
Went out last week and caught 23 here in Indiana.
We are catching them pretty hot and heavy right now.
I think what your talking about is the old saying: If the dogwoods are blooming the crappie are biting. Normally all thru April.:wink:
