Crappie fishing is on fire in the southern U.S. Both males and females have followed the warming water into the shallows and are gathered along shorelines in 1 - 3 feet of water. They can be caught on slip-bobber rigs around logs, brush, weeds, and aquatic vegetation. Pictured is a 2.3 lb monster caught at Grenada Lake in Mississippi. This is prime time for crappie!
