Hi Jim,

I looked around some but didn't find an article about Crappie. Do you know that there is an article about Crappie? You can use the information in the Bream article to catch Crappie.

There's an article by Cliff Hilbert. Toss his name with the word crappie following it into a google search. Quite a bit of stuff available.
Did you have specific questions about crappie?

I've seen that you can use a strike indicator/bobber with a light crappie jig on it for lakes/rivers.

It has been my experience that crappie (we call them speckled perch in Florida) aren't too picky. The hardest thing to do is find them when they're suspended.

I use my Myakka Minnow, my Speckulator and small nymphs for them. On Tuesday, I caught a speck that probably went 1 1/2-1 3/4 pounds on a No. 12 nymph.

hi Jim

I either use a chatruse and white clouser or a white maribou but the trick is detecting the strike---ill use a slow hand twist retrieve and hold the rod steady and watch the entry point of the line on the surface---if it moves toward the fly a half inch---thats the strike.
I live in a marina and fish the docks in the spring and catch them on every cast.
