Went out again and caught a mess of Black Crappies. They aren't as big as you guys catch back East but they are plentyful. I'm using a slip bobber set up with two tube jigs. Depth has been around 4ft. Colors that I am using is black and chartruse, red/white or pink and white. I use a 16oz. jig. I'm fishing off the bank in about seven feet of water. How do I know the depth, a couple days ago I was fishing out my little pontoon boat. It's nine foot long a one seeter.

[QUOTE I use a 16oz. jig. .


Man that 1 lb jig must really bend your pole. lol Just kidding that was a typo right ? 1/16 th oz jig ? Great post. Here at Lake Nimrod we catch some good sized White Crappie ,but most of the Black Crappie are small . Must be the dingy fertile waters favor the Whites?:confused: The Blacks tend to do better in clear less fertile waters according to what I've read.

Nice catch Ken, in S.C. with the water temps in the high 80's and with the drought we are not seeing many big fish caught right now, so it is good to see a nice mess of crappie, congrats.:)

Thats a nice mess of crappie, good job. I've been busy chasing gills, but your pics are giving me the urge to hit some brushpiles.

Interesting method :confused:. Wish I had known this trick before I spent all that money on a depth finder.

Good Job, but what part of the country are you in that the fish are that shallow?

I wish they were shallow here as I love it when they are.

Congrats,

Skip

Thats what I was wondering as well.

If I remember correctly, Ken's up in Idaho.

As for fish being shallow - depends on the water you're fishing. The little lakes I fish have temps up into the 70's already (in NY?!), but since their max depth is in the neighborhood of 10', they're always what most would consider shallow. I catch crappie in 3-6 FOW all summer long - just because the fish don't have the option of heading out into 20-30 FOW.
