Ice Out Crappie Fishing Action!

Trip Summary

Ice out Crappies are so fun when you locate them. We first made a sweep of the lake using side imaging looking for any remaining green weeds. This lake in particular had no weed growth so we started working the bottom edge of the break-line. We located a school of crappie using Side imaging then went to work using forward facing sonar. The fish were a little lethargic to where we had to switch to light jigs, minnows, and a rocket bobber set up. The best technique was to cast upwind of the school and let your jig/minnow drift over top of the school letting the waves do the work. A key part in detecting the bite was by using a light jig (1/32oz) no split shot weight added. This let the rocket bobber lay sideways, so when a crappie hit your presentation it stands the bobber up right to indicate a bite.
