    I agree on the loop knot, this can make a huge difference some days.

    Also read and learn as much as you can about whatever local bodies of water that you plan to fish. A good source is crappie.com, look on your state's forum.

    Please let us know how it goes.
    Quite possibly my favorite fresh water fish

    go to crappie.com and start reading. There is a boat load of information over there. It will help you get started. But be forewarned it will become addicting. Crappie are some of the easiest fish to catch when they spawn and other times they will leave you scratching your head. Good thing it doesn't cost much to get started.

    I can' get enough crappie fishing,unfortunately I only have a small boat and I live in Nevada.We get some in Utah,but you really have to hit it just right or they are tough to find.My son caught a nice one last year while throwing a shaky head worm for bass it was 16 inches and just over 2 pounds.They are so fun.

    Minnows with a fine wire hook, flouro-carbon, light line, under a slip bobber which allows you to easily adjust depth. I used to catch a ton back in Ohio in the Spring.
    Never saw Crappie as big as in some of the reservoirs in southern California 31/2 pounders.

    I just started reading up on crappie myself last week. Im wanting to take my 6 year old out. Slip bobber and tube jig filled with Berkley crappie nibble. Chartreuse with any color seems to be the popular.

    I like a roadrunner in yellow, white , or green. It'll catch hybrids and white bass too. they're available now in a lot of different configurations and sizes. The spinning blade seems to help a little with the weeds and brush.
