Crappie Tubes

How to fish for crappie ?

Im new to fishing for crappie so how do you fish for them during the summer months. What lures would work the best and what time of day is best.

In the summer, crappies are suspended in deeper water close to structure, like weed edges or deep drop offs. I like to fish for them by starting off with little in line spinners like rooster tails and also with small hardbaits, like crankbaits and rattle-traps. I use these lures to find the crappies. Crappies gather in big schools, so once I get a bite on my search lures, I switch to a slip bobber with a little hair jig or crappie tube, or if want to go with live bait, a minnow. I cast right on top of the school and wait for a bite. Try to keep your bait a little bit above the fish because crappies look up to feed, therefore you are less likely to get a bite if the lure is at their level or below them. Also pay extra attention to your bobber because crappies don't always take the bait down they often just come up and suck in it and just sit there.

Good luck!
