What is your method of fishing for Crappie? I have tried the artificial , trolling, jigging etc and always come back to the old minnow under the bobber method. No matter what I am fishing for be it cats, Walleye or Crappie I like to kick back, pour a cup of coffee and relax. I don't know what my problem is but it seems if I am not anchored at a brush pile, fishing a bobber-minnow that I am sort of lost. During winter months I go out and buy all these Crappie jigs and artificial bait, then wind up giving them to the kids when spring arrives. The man I fish the most with (another geezer) is the same way. So lets hear what is your favorite method for hitting Crappie.
