Crappie Questions / Night Fishing with Lights
« Last post by ER on April 29, 2020, 07:21 AM »
Hello, I'm new to this site but think it's great as I love fishing for Crappies.  With it getting hot now, I want to use lights and fish at night, do I go to the deeper cliff areas or fish near trees in water 12 to 20 feet deep?  Thanks and I look forward to hearing some crappie wisdom.
Crappie Gear / BnM 12' Rods PST 122N
« Last post by IAMMAC on April 28, 2020, 05:39 PM »
Any interest in 4-12' BnM PST 122N rods?  Selling for $20 a piece, figured I'd try here before any of the other places.
-Also, what is the vote for a more rounded wide wobble vs a thinner tighter wobble (shad style) crank for catching crappie?  Thanks!
General Discussion / Thoughts on custom airbrushed cranks for crappie...?
« Last post by CamFisher on April 28, 2020, 07:33 AM »
Hello gang! I have recently gotten into airbrushing crankbaits- small, mid to deep divers for crappie. My questions for the group are: What colors and/or patterns would you believe to be successful, besides the "typical" ones, for crappie?  Also, since crappie tend to feed up, it seems to me that more attention to pattern and detail should be made on the belly of the crank, rather than the traditional top/back. (The belly gets neglected on most crankbaits- commonly sprayed in a white or, wouldn't they all look predominantly the same to a crappie that is looking up???). Who is a believer in red hooks?  Does it make a difference to the fish, or mostly confidence to the fisherman?  I am starting to believe that most details given to the paint jobs on these cranks are more intended to catch the fisherman and not necessarily the fish. Your thoughts are appreciated.   :happy1:

The tracks laid down by the master alone should be worth 650,but with all the spare parts it should be a no brainer for any one in the market.

With the launching restrictions now on Pleasant on the weekends, Canyon and Saguaro closed it is pushing people out to what lakes are available (plus 100+ degrees in April :crybaby2:)

Honestly, reports are from all over the lake, but most people in the summer tend to focus on everything above the no wake it also gets you away from the wakeboard boats and jet skies. Furthest past the bouys Iíve been was about a mile and a half.  Iím sure there were more where you caught your one.....they seem to be more boat shy Ďthis year.

When they are not open water schooling, I think itís more about the right depth and type of tree then physical location.   Few weeks back, Alder cove down lake was a hot itís dead. Yellow Cliff area is always a good bet. Lately way, way up river in newly covered trees has been good (due to the high water). Right now, the 22Ė18 depth on thick timber trees seem to be holding them. Nobody this year seemed to find huge #ís of spawning fish, but many I caught this weekend weíre already spawned out females. So who knows.  Good luck.
