Spring fishing for Crappies can often be hit or miss.
Finding fish is the key of course to a tasty diner.
A great on line tool to use is the MNR Fish-On-Line website
Choose a lake near you, hook up the boat, pack the kids and head out.
You can of course fish from the shoreline or from a pier but it does limit your search.
A back bay about 6-8 feet deep will hold fish or marinas and canals.
Bait selection is easy, real minnows or Gulp bait works just fine.
A 1/16-1/8th oz hook, or jig, bobber and 4 lb test line on a light rod will take
care of the equipment side.
It really is that simple.
The spring bite only lasts for a short time
