    Default Crappie that wont bite.

    I am very new to the crappie world, but after getting livescope it is becoming addictive. For the last 3 weeks, I had 3 brushpiles in 20ft of water that I could pull up to and catch as many as I wanted. This weekend that changed. The crappie were still there, in fact more than before. I have been dropping down a BG, 3 to 4 fish would race to the bait, and I would hook one. Saturday and Monday, I spent 4 hours each day, on all 3 piles and got the same reaction from all 3. Nothing, the crappie would ever so slightly look up, but would not bite. I tried every color I had, a spinner, a spoon, a white hair jig. I did end up finding some solo fish in the middle of a creek channel, that at first I thought were bass sitting under some bait, that would hit the spoon, Only caught 3 doing that, but they were solid 12-13"ers. Would do you do when the bite is like this?

    Proof LS will not affect crappie population as much as some think...... These fish are too wishy washy not sure y'all now that term but there is no way to take all crappie out of a lake.....
    Once moment you think you've got'um figured out the next they slap you across the head with a 2x4.....LOL

    Go small and down size your lures. This usually works for me when the bite slows up.

    Crappie don't have a brain bigger than a bb but if they don't want to bite can't make them.
