I dont know who does what on this site, but I was wondering if anyone is into crappie fishing. And if they are, Where do you fish at?
I'm cant wait for next spawn season.

Green Plant Shorts Cap Baseball cap Here's a stringer of some good ones me and my uncle caught the last fishing trip of the summer last year.

P.S. That's my uncle, not me.

Excellent string there!, I haven't caught a crappie since I was a kid. I kind of miss it. I primarily fish musky and pike all season long now. I took time off of esox fishing to fish smallmouths last summer, and I had a great time. I caught my biggest SM ever at 3.5lbs.

I really should get back to those crappies!

You got blacks in MN and ND huh? I've never fished in either of those states. Here in Missouri, we got black and whites both. Biggest I've ever caught was a black that was 15" and weight 3lb 14oz., and he's on my wall. lol

WE mainly have blacks. I have never caught a white crappie in my life here, but I have heard of people catching them.

i like crappie, i usually catch them when aiming at bass with small rapalas. every now and again ill try to just catch crappie.
Yeah it's easy to catch a crappie with a rapala... like shad raps and such. I've caught some slab crappies on accident when I was bass fishing

Great fish, in fact they're gorgeous fish. I caught one a couple weeks ago in New Orleans. I was really surprised to catch one in the city.

Are you joking? Explain pls.

Not joking. I caught it while doing sampling for my research. Bayou St. John's is relatively natural (isn't a canal) but it goes through the city and also has exotic species (Texas cichlids). This crappie was the first one I've caught.

I know where you're talking about too, I worked in New Orleans shortly after Katrina hit. Didnt take me long and I was on my way headed back north, I couldnt handle all the chaos down there.

I've never been ice fishing. But I recall, in upstate new york right on the canadian border, when I used to travel up there alot, when I was crossing lake champlain, ice fishing was real popular there.
