During the spring spawn, crappies are found in relatively shallow water near the upper ends of coves. Later they move to deeper water, usually to depths of 15 feet or more. Spawning crappie can be caught with jigs, minnows or small crankbaits or spinners.

This will keep you more organized and prepared on the water. After organizing, you’ll have a better sense of the tackle you need to restock for your coming trip.
