When turnover ends and the water starts to clear, crappie often concentrate around standing timber. Here the fish can move shallow or deep as water and weather conditions dictate. On cloudy or windy days when light does not penetrate very far into the water, crappie may be within a few feet of the surface. Bright, sunny days may find them hugging the bottom. Adjust your tactics accordingly.


Jigs and minnows are the best crappie baits year-round, but if one or the other doesn t produce, try a jig/minnow combo. A combination of live bait(wax worms too) and artificial lure sometimes does the trick for finicky spring crappie.

White crappie tend to tolerate silty and muddy water better than black crappies, which prefer clearer water. White crappies have five to 10 vertical bands on their sides and backs, and black crappies have deeper bodies with dusky or dark blotches. White crappies have five or six dorsal spines and black crappies have seven or eight.
