Crappie Cover

Ever had a hard time locating crappie in your favorite fishing hole? Eliminate the guesswork by setting out your own fish attractors where regulations permit. Old Christmas trees with a block or brick on the bottom work well as do stake beds. And if you don't have any out this year look for boat docks with lawn chairs and fish baskets on them. Crappie cover won't be far away.

Catfish Targeting

Here's a general way to target different species of catfish. Channels will eat almost anything from prepared commercial baits to live or rotten natural ones. Blues will take a live bait, but are more likely to be caught on fresh pieces of cut bait. Flatheads like fish and prefer them alive. Is it any wonder most think they taste the best?

Catching Bluegill from the Bottom

Bluegill are bottom feeders, most of the time anyway. Sure, there are times in the warm-weather months that bluegill will rise to smack hapless flying insects on the surface, but they spend far more time near the bottom. If you want your kids to catch more of them teach them to fish with slip corks that will keep their baits near the bottom.

Tip your Jigs

Some crappie fishermen like minnows, others jigs. But there are times when neither works particularly well. What to do? Try tipping your jigs with minnows and fishing the jig like normal. It's an idea that works well for walleye and sauger, too.

Fishing Flood Water

When fishing flood water it's imperative to know if the water is rising or falling. As long as it's coming up fish will spread out and look for food where they can find it. Flooded road beds with deeper water around them can be hot. When the water starts to fall concentrate your efforts where ditches and creeks dump into bigger of the same.
