Catching a few Perch, Catfish, and Crappie trolling deep.

Perch, Catfish and Crappie are being caught right now. This is a good way to catch cold water crappie. Use a spider rig setup around your boat. Go to a creek that has deep water. Then use your electronics to find the crappie. Take a 15-20 inch leader and tie a mo-glo 1/16 oz. hook to end of line. Then take a 1/4 oz. sinker on 4 pound test line and place it about 16 inches above the hook. I use a bullet sinker. Use slider jigs or your favorite skirt on hook and tip with a minnow. Now run your line until your bait is near bottom. DO NOT TROLL! Only bump the troll motor just a little to make the lines move over the crappie and make your jigs move around a little. It will be a slight bite so pay attention. Junebug and black glo sliders are good. The jig head colors I use are blue and pink in cold water. Sometimes as the day wears on the crappie will migrate to back of creeks in shallower water. Sometimes this setup works wonders when the bite is slow during the cold early spring waters.

The Catfish bite is great right now. We are also catching a lot of Crappie. Come on out and join the fun.
