    I am a newbie to crappie fishing so i had a couple questions for the more experienced. what type of lures are best for crappie fishing and are they in the same type of vegetation that a bass hangs out in. or where should i look to find hotspots for crappie. a downed tree in the water or grassbeds or around rocks anything helps thanks in advance for any answers.

    In the spring look for submerged wood in shallow water where they come to spawn. After the spawn crappies will likely suspend off drops at various depths. In the summer I can usually catch them by drifting or trolling minnows on a tube jig across the main reservoir basin. In natural lakes they also suspend but there will usually be a few relating to the deep weed edge while feeding.

      crappie jigs work REALLY well with or (sometimes) without bait. there have been days were i have out fish people using the same jig without bait! basically its the same thing(or it is) that DSM mentioned. I have noticed that color sometimes matter to the fish. tubes occasionally fall off and you will go thru a pack but its well worth the 2 $ for a pack.

        Try something like a rooster tail. It will increase your chances of finding fish since bass, crappie, blue gill, and pretty much every other aggressive fish will hit it.
