Crappie Basics 168: August Shallow Water

Robert Robinson, a.k.a. Wister Slab Daddy on crappie.com, says August in Oklahoma can be okay. “Most fishermen fish deep but I fish shallow. I catch two-pound fish in three feet of water. There is more oxygen in the shallow water.

“It can be hard to make yourself fish in shallow water, but once you catch a couple of good fish, you can do it and stay with it. So don’t give up too soon. Do your homework, put in time and learn the shallow water areas that produce in your home lake. It will work.”
