Thanks in advance guys. I've always fished for them in the Spring, but want to try doing it successfully in the summer. Can you direct me to any educational info, either threads on here or links on the net or books that would brush me up before I tear off in a cloud of dust?

If you can find it, Slab crappie secrets, from the in-fisherman handbook of strategies series. This book is worth it's weight in gold to me. I've learned so much from reading this book. I still go back and read or re-read parts that i feel i need to brush up on. Good luck finding it. I've had mine since 1983.
