Casting ligs or Road Runners for Crappie. My favorite way to catch Crappie. Usually do this around rocks, riprap or steep drops. You can do it over brush but you lose a lot of jigs until you get good at it. The hardest thing to teach beginners at this is to never reel the lure. Cast out, let the lure sink on a fairly tight line until it reaches bottom (or has a fish on it). Pick up the lure with the rod a couple of feet and let it fall back to the bottom reeling up the slack line as it falls. Repeat until lure is straight down. Stop and fish it still for a few seconds before reeling it up. Most strikes occur while it’s falling back to the bottom. Remember you are never reeling the lure, only taking up slack. In the springtime this also works well along bare banks. Watch your line carefully, a lot of the strikes will be very light at times.

Great tips Ernest. I wish you were still guiding or would make another video. I learn a lot from listening to you.

I like to throw them into sunshine and let them fall on a tightline back into the shade of the structure I'm fishing.

BOOMSHAKALAKA!
