I don't own a boat, so am limited to shore/wading. I've been reading articles and watching YouTube vids, but that only goes so far since you can't ask questions to the screen, lol. Almost all vids I've seen are shot in boats, but doesn't address bank anglers. So my first obvious question is...how do you fish for crappie from shore? I have plenty of others to follow up with, so I'm saying sorry in advance for all the questions. I will appreciate any and all help/advice given.
    Try fly fishing. Itís fun and most people wade or fish from the bank.

    I always found crappie fishing from the bank to be difficult but that may be because of the lakes that are around me. There isn't a ton of accessible land to bank fish around my local lakes so it makes it hard to be mobile and find fish. If you have good bank access I would start off with 1/16 oz. jig heads and a variety of soft plastics. That way you don't have a lot of gear and can hit a lot of spots til you find them. If your spots are limited I would still take soft plastics but add minnows too. You don't want to be lugging around a bucket of minnows everywhere with ya if you don't have too.

    I know in the spring, around me, guys will hit back bays looking for brush piles or downed trees. There are also a number of bridges around a few of the lakes and they will concentrate on bridge pilings. Most of my lakes are flood control lakes so in the spring they can fill up pretty good, opening up a lot of opportunities but also closing off bank access.

    You live right by the GMR. I don't know how the crappie fishing is there but its a really good smallmouth bass river. I spend most of my summer wading creeks for bass and whatever else will hit. The peacefulness of wading a cool creek on a warm morning with nobody around is tough to beat, fish are just a bonus.
