    Crappie are sporadic, due to lake filling with colder rain water.
    Haven't seen Shad spawning yet, or WB moving in.

    New to the forum. I'm a diehard bass fisherman BUT, I'm seriously interested in learning more about crappie fishing. I'm 56, fish in the southwest Ohio region and own a Ranger RT198P boat. Right now, I'm not much of a crappie fisherman, meaning I'm not really good/consistent at it. My one buddy took to it this year like he's been doing it his whole life. He's especially good at deep water fishing for them with a slip bobber and minnow set up. I can find them with my electronics, just not very adept to setting my gear up for the correct depth, (I guess). Maybe it's patience that I'm lacking. Anyway, I want to get in on this, because I feel like with some tweaks to my set up, I could be successful. So with all of that said, that's why I joined this forum. I wanted to see what I can be doing better. Thanks everyone.

    WB are in the creek...it's a WB slaughter up there!
    Massive 3 inch plus rain yesterday...more coming...may give WB a chance to spawn.
    Entire lake will turn over due to flooding rains.
    Temps were 64 in Main Lake and 67 in the North before the rain, but only in the mid 50's at depth. Entire lake will be fresh new warm water.
    Crappie were just starting to come in...small ones come first.
    Big Crappie were still on deep drops. Limited once with all 12""+, then started getting alot of 9-10 inch males in their dark spawning colors and torn tails.
    If you don't want to fish in the rain, this weekend will be on...
    Water will be high and dark, so use bright colors if cloudy and dawn/dusk, and darker natural colors if sunny!
    It was dark before the heavy rains and Chartreuse and White with a Crappie nib was on. Hot Pink was not working yet since water was dark.

    Welcome WVAMMO!
    I'm a Bass Fisherman also...Why change your style to Crappie fish...just downsize lures and get a few brighter colors.
    I start out in late Winter early Spring catching Walleye and Crappie for my freezer (my favorite freshwater eating)..then after the spawn I catch and release everything, and Bass Fish at night.
    I use the same rods, reels, braid, for Walleye, Crappie, WB, Bass, and now Muskie....just downsize baits for Crappie.
    You can use 1/16 jigheads with a #1 or 1/0 hook and 3" swimbaits or plastics for Crappie in shallow water, or 1/8 jigheads with #1 or 1/0 hooks and 3" plastics in deep water ...or small cranks, spinners, chatterbaits, underspins, craws, or jig/pigs.
    After spawns Bass head to shallow water with cover, shade, or structures....Crappie head to deep drops, deep cover, and suspend. They will eat small easy meals in the heat of the day, but they come alive in the shallows at night...and feed BIG.
    CJ is a very fertile lake with a HUGE shad population, so fish are well fed.
    Crappie eat zooplankton in winter, then 2" natural minnows in early spring, then 3" shad pre-spawn, 3-6 inch shad post spawn and at night anything they can get in their mouths.
    Big Crappie follow schools of shad and bust them at night, this is when Crappie have the sight advantage...and they'll hunt big and hit hard.
    Since fish are well fed, to get bites when no one else can, you have to Bass Fish Crappie.....
    You have to make it look unusual and an easy target...start/stop your lure, twitch it, lift it and drop, it has to look injured or dying.
    Since Crappie are deeper in the day, you need bright colors instead of Bass natural colors. At night you need action and contrasting color.
    Crappie have great eyesight and see colors in day and almost as good as Walleye at night.
    I know others have preferred ways to Fish, but if I had to Crappie fish using live bait, troll, vertical jig, sit in a spot all day, etc, I would just quit fishing! lol
    I'm glad to answer your questions or help out...Good Fishing!
