Hi everyone,
I've been reading your post for a few weeks now and decided to join in.I am not a seasoned Crappie fisherman but have had enough of a taste to be hooked.I find all of your post very interesting.The trolling.dock shooting,drop shoting.I have never heard of any of these methods before.I am going to try some of them.But this weekend I believe the Crappie where my 12 year old and I fish will be moving to more shallow water.(8ft or so).We fish in the Black Warrior river.We love to Bream fish,Crappie,and Jug fish,so we stay in the river most of the time, plus we can be in the water fishing 30min from home.We have a 14 ft aluminum jon boat with an old 25 Evinrude,but we have added a trolling motor and a eagle cuda 168 fish finder and i am very eager to learn more about Crappie fishing.So I hope I want bore some of you to death with some of the questions I will come up with.Thanks for Listening

Hello, Riverfisher......the only boring question is the one you don't ask. Don't be shy on this board, we all ask questions and even answer them if we know the answer. Welcome to crappie.com......

don't expect to load the boat starting with these new tactics. just like anything it takes practice. I am learning how to troll myself. I started in june. just tinker with your methods. just because it works for some other fisherman doesn't mean you can do the same thing. The shooting works for me because the lake I fish has more docks than water.

The crappie don't care. I don't think they spell very well themselves

I appreciate all the welcomes.Just bought a Buck's Graphite jig pole by B & M ,11 ft.has ceramic guides.Bought a cheap Shakespear Legacy T11 reel.Can't wait to try it out .In the morning will be soon enough I guess .We got a pretty heavy rain here last night. Maybe 1 in. or so ,but the low temps here for the last week and a half or so have been in the uppper 40's and highs in the upper 60's and lower 70's.I figure the water has to be mid to upper 50's and if what all I have read is true , these Crappie have got to be in the tree tops about 8 or 10 ft deep.If not I will try backing up and looking in the creek channel or what ever.What do you guys think? We were fishing in Yellow Creek on the Dec. 31 and the water there was 49 and 50 .That water is 50 and 60 feet deep .The water we are going to sunday is 20 to 30 ft in the channel and these two places are about 60 miles apart.Anyway I hate trying to get tooooo! technical but these things seem important. I've rambled on enough but I love hearing your comment s if you feel like it !
