Fall Crappie Fishing


Staff member
How is the crappie fishing in the fall?

Typically, I try to go catfishing with noodles and trotlines in the fall. I usually catch a lot of bowfin, more bowfin than catfish, but that might be because of the bait.

Sometime after Thanksgiving I want to head out to a local river, do some fishing, and look for a place to go hunting on public lands.

My usual crappie lures are the black and chartreuse swirl tail about 1 1/2 inches long.
