Crappies through the Ice

During the frozen water period, chasing crappies is one of my favorite activities.

 

Winter and crappie fishing go hand-in-hand or me There are certainly other fish to catch, but crappies are always a treat. One of the reasons I like crappies is the fact they can be caught during the daylight hours. The key is to find a deep basin that holds fish. On this particular day we were fishing in 35 feet of water.

My standard fare for working crappies is a light action rod spooled with two-pound-test Micro Ice. When the fish are finicky I like to use a spring bobber. My favorite lure is a #10 Fire Ant Bro Bug from Northland Tackle. I tip this lure with Euro larvae which are also called maggots.

Not every fish we caught was huge, but some were.

The combination of a Bro Bug and spring bobber helped put fish on the ice.
