View Full Version : HELP!! Night time crappie fishing

07-17-2010, 10:45 AM
It's been really hot lately so I've been focusing my attention more toward bass fishing in the evening rather than crappie. Last night while dragging a finesse worm along the bottom besides the five green carp I caught my 2 biggest crappie in the last year with the biggest almost 16 inches which swallowed the worm.Luckily,no bleeding so released her. The lake is a city park lake,maximum depth about 6 feet. I want to give the crappie a good shot at night but I'm unsure what to use. I need suggestions on size and colors, even type of bait. Minnows,jigs,cranks,anything that works best for nightime crappie. What are your favorite crappie baits for night fishing ? I want to give those night crappies something to think about.

For night fishing we always used minnows under a light. Works well in the heat of the summer.

Greenlight sunk about 3-4' deep. And whatever color tube jig you normally use. Minnows work, but are such a pain after dark for me to use much. Lee
