Crappie Basics 176: Channel Brush

            John Godwin of Duck Dynasty wears a grey beard and big smile. He loves the outdoors including crappie fishing. And, he is very good at loading a livewell with good fish.

“In December we fish the channel at D’Arbonne, Louisiana. There are some deep brushtops in the channel. Fish aren’t everywhere, but when you hit a few brushpiles and find the right one, fishing can be pretty good. I’ll have three or four poles out but I’m not moving much. It works best when the baits are held still in the same place.”
