Tips for river crappies

2 posts in this topic

I am having a hard time chasing down the crappies in the river latly I went with slip bobbers and some flu flus but nothing, then I tried some spinners and nothing again. I was fishing docks over deep water and some fallen trees. I tryed some other areas with the same poor results. What type of structure do I look for when there isn't much back water and what presentations work well for hunting them down. The only finder I have is a vex so I thought I would be able to see them easy but nothing even looked good. Let me know what you think heading out Sat evening and most of sunday.

Good luck on the water!!!

Right now I would look for structure closest to the river channel. Any trees located just off the main channel, or points, saddles, etc. Fish will use the main channel and slide up to feed. Should hold consistent for most of the summer.

I would also look for deep fallen trees off the shorelines. Wood in about 15 or so feet of water typically holds crappies.

I would target those fish with slightly larger baits. 2-inch minnow imitations, tubes, 2-inch twister tails... larger profile is the way to go in the river...

    • What kind of heaters are you guys running? Do you guys have to build your wall out if using a direct vent? Since most of them are for 4 1/2" walls.

    • Ya the Bush's think our current media is essential, the same media that tells lie after lie, focus mostly on ratings instead of news & of course colludes with politicians and government to cover up those dirty little secrets they don't want out. Not sure we have ever had a truly free press and people like Bush Family and the Clinton's just love it.
    •   That might actually work for del if the generals happen to be Republicans or "right leaning independents"...

    • The fantasy is happening right now, the parties are already crumbling and people on both sides are flocking to outside candidates. This isn't some fluke, the parties are not going to straiten themselves out and suddenly get back supporters and clean up their acts. There time is at an end, who or what replaces them I don't know but change is in the air so I would try and embrace it.

    • Lets hope they are peaking early. Towes has been hot but he can't score on us at that pace forever, keep him in check along with Kane and I think we can take them. You aren't going to stop those two completely, the rest of the team isn't as deep as they have been during other cup runs so this is the year to take them out.
