I know guys catch the crappie down deep, but i've heard from some old timers that there's not enuff oxygen down that deep. Just old wives tales or what?

Welcome aboard, beast. As I understand it the oxygen levels in deeper water are highly dependant on water clarity, themuddyer it is, the less oxygen there will be in deeper water. As for trolling, don't know nuthin bout it, but I don't know nuthin bout nuthin so I might be wrong about the oxygen:D.

Welcome from NC. I do most of my trolling long lining from the stern of the boat opposed to tight lining from the bow (spider rigging). Just works better for me. I troll 8 rods on high vis 4 lb test using 1/32 and 1/16 oz jig heads on Two 14', two 12', two 9' and two 5" rods. I try to keep my speed between .7 and 1.2 mph. I use twister tail bodys, mostly the tripple ripple type. Depending on the speed and water depth, you can add various size split shot about 2' up your line to keep your jig near the bottom. The more you do it the better you'll get at it. Alot of the time I'll add a crappie nibble and/or some spray scent too. Hope that helps some.

... those old timers are probably referring to the thermocline. It would depend on whether or not the lake you fish has one. Thermoclines don't occur in all bodies of water. And it's are more of a late Spring to late Fall occurrance, since it's actually the stratifying of water of differing temps (warm water suspended over cold water).
Do some research on "thermocline" and "turnover" (as it applies to lakes & reservoirs) and apply that to the body of water you fish.

And Welcome to Crappie.com !!
