January 19, 2012When fishing in the late parts of winter remember that the northern most sides of lakes and bodies of water tend to warm first and most crappie will move to the warmer areas to feed. Murky water also tends to heat faster than clear water and your chances of getting a good catch in these types of areas is good.
In actuality, fishing for crappie during the winter months is the most predictable time of the year as far as fish behavior is concerned. During the cold time of the year, these fish will always be found in the deeper parts of the water. Use a depth finder and concentrate on the deep areas to find the crappie this time of year.
Tight lines everyone!
