on friday i was fishing with my cousin and i threw my line out with a soft light blue worm plastic wrapped on the hook twice. i got a bite that scared the heck out of me. when i reel in the plastic is gone and no fish. so i casted the same and this time i landed about a good 6-7 pound white crapppie it was more then 20 inches long but i didnt weigh it i took a picture and didnt measure it next time i know to do them things and there went my world record back in the water

The week right after ice out is usually the best crappie fishing of the year.

A tiny, white, in line spinner bait works best for me. I caught 9 crappie in 1 day with this method. Also, try and troll in deeper water, up near the surface during midday, also with a spinner.

When jugging, try to just let the jig jig off the bottom. If you don't get hung up in brush then this should work. Fish in 60 to 70 degree weather in the spring and fall.
