Crappie Basics 173: Get Shallow

“A good tip for October is to just get out and crappie fish. My home lake is Truman, so in the fall we dip the trees. The fish are starting to feed up. They move up the creeks and get shallow just like they do during the spawn. I like to sling a jig under a bobber up in the shallows. My favorite colors here are black-chartreuse, orange-chartreuse and blue-white.” Mark Huey
