Thanks I thought that it was because of the color change on there bodies. I haven't had the pleasure of fishing for crappie yet. I've seen so many people posting there crappie fishing trip since mid February. I mean like every southern state from VA. Down. And out towards TX. Crappie fisherman have been going Bat S@&! Crazy.
I'm kinda salty because I wanna fish too LOL.

Keep catching them Richard! I love your videos. You have single handedly gotten me back into Crippie fishes this year. It’s been about 7 years. I drove 3-1/2 hours on Saturday to try and get into them. Unfortunately I didn’t catch any but I am sure I soon will.

we still have 36-45 inches of ice in Minnesota, but the crappies and sunfish are moving out of the main lake basins and staging near their traditional spawning grounds.

The 5 that gave this video a "thumb down" are probably in their parents basement and never been fishing their whole lives. Thanks again Richard for another fun and informative crappie video. Actually had some success with your techniques yesterday.

You know I've been watching and have watched most eveyone of your videos and if I'd say so myself this one has to be my favorite or at least one of my favorites. Not only are you catching some really nice crappie, you are giving alot of awesome tips to people who don't know how to crappie fish. This reminds me so much of my father in law, and us fishing. Just awesome keep them coming. I'm sure you'll be doing alot more of these videos just like this cause guess what time it is, spring time and just an awesome time of year to catch crappie and bass and all kinds of fish. Thanks Richard, thanks so much. Good luck and God Bless.

Richard, I'm going ultralight with the smaller jigs with 6-8lb test mono using spinning reels. I'm having a devil of a time with the line balling up and making loops on my spool. What am I doing wrong? wrong line? too much memory? too light jighead? I end up just cutting my line several times a trip and just starting over. Help! Thanks.
robertintexas - 4 years ago
Roggiedale, I'm going out of town this weekend for a family get together, and I drive right by a Cabela's. I'll stop and pick up one of these spools of line. Thanks for your tips. rob.
roggiedale - 4 years ago
First before you go let the line out 50' plus and stretch the line. Then reel the line on your reel and spray with reel magic or a similar product. STOP throwing and snapping the bail by reeling Throw out the bait then fold the bail by hand to stop the line twist. After a period of time twist are going to form ( Facts of life jig fishing). Let the line out with nothing on your line for 50' +. Then reel back on reel and start fishing with this rod again. Add two similar rods, reels, and line for a longer period of fishing. Be a smarter fisherman and start using 4lb and 6lb. Use monofilment green Pro Line (Cabelas) on a 7'/ 6'6'' rod ( Your going to need the line stretch and forgiveness in the rig). Of course smaller rod on docks. Reel slower then you think it should be moved. Watch the line jump. Thump! Cheap and smart til you learn. Use your drag. Enjoy more fish. Just a thought from a old man. Well with a freezer full of crappie fillets. With this line bring it. You can afford to respool for pennies on the dollar. Remember most fishermen fish below the crappie. Learn weight of bait on line weight and rate of fall. Test with staked out level of water level in lake. With foot measured pvc pipe, 1000 one 2000 two etc ( Hint). Just a thought. Wish some one told me this years ago. God Bless you and yours. Good Luck!

Pre-spawn crappie pattern is now happening in Kentucky. The males are searching for nesting areas. Just got back from a local lake. The crappie are on the move.
