    Default General Crappie Advice

    I have fished for crappie in Tennessee and Washington since I was young. The way I knew they were biting was when the dogwood trees would bloom. We would go out trolling and catch lots. That is they only way I fished. Seems that doesn’t work here. So can you give me some advice,articles so I can teach myself how to target crappie here. I only live in New Orleans from Nov-May each year. I go to my other home in Washington during the summer. Also, if you ever want a fishing buddy I would be happy to tag along and pay my part in the expenses of the boat. So far I have been out to the river twice. Caught on sunfish and something bit one of my plastics in half. Not sure where to fish at what water temperature. Thank you and sorry so long of a post.

    A crab probably bite the grub in half.
    If I were you I would try the waters underneath I55 between LaPlace and Ruddock. Use a cork and a 1/32 oz. jig head with a tube jig or solid body jig of your liking. Fish about 12” to 36”.
    The crappie are moving in to spawn. So cypress trees, logs, cypress knees will do good, or any type of shallow water structure.
    You can use this on any type of water around your area. There is also Bayou Segnette, they have oilfield canals that should be good about now. Hope this may help

    When you find Blowdowns in shallow water start fishing them from a distance -- use baits with spinner blades away from the structure, up close, shiners --- fish slow because Crappie spook easy in shallow water
