Crappie Fishing Smackdown [50+ Fish!] - Beginners Guide Lures/Rig/Setup

Hey guys!

We had a great day on the water recently and caught a whole bunch of crappie (50+)! We used the opportunity to put together a tutorial vid about the lures we used & the rig/setup. Hoping that if you haven't caught crappie before this should be a good starting point.

I'm sure most of you guys know this but below are just a couple high level "behaviors" of Crappie that people just starting out may not know; but are important of you are going to catch crappie!

Crappie are very depth oriented fish. So you need to find the depth the crappie are holding at to have a good day (by the way crappie are schooling fish so if you find'll definitely find more). So that should be your first goal - figure out exactly what depth they are keyed in at. During the summer, this will generally be deeper down because that's where the cooler water is at.

Secondly, the most effective way to catch crappie is probably vertically jigging. So, if you have access to a boat/canoe/kayak I'd definitely recommend using that to get right on top of them. Then all ya need to do is bounce the jig around at the depth they are holding.

If you are able to do that; I can almost guarantee you that you will have a good day (of course as long as there are crappie in the water you are fishing).

Tight lines yall!

Fatheads on a hook or jig head under a slip bobber is all we usually do to catch crappie.
