If you fish the same lake for years and have a pretty good idea of were crappie are going to spawn. You can use either bamboo or fresh cut cedars in 6'-8' of water to hold them in deeper water while they stage.

I did this last fall in two locations and caught 9 crappie off of it Tuesday. Bigger females waiting for conditions to get right before moving up.

Most boats will move down the bank fishing 2' water and 75' offshore you can catch nice fish when the other boats move on.

Thought I would bump this post I made in March.

Friday was the 1st good day to fish in a long time, no wind and warm. I caught 19 crappie 1&1/2 to 2lbs off of the tops I placed in 6'-8' of water for staging crappie. I used 2 cinder blocks stacked & tied together with 8' pieces of bamboo stuffed in the holes from both sides.

Big pre spawn females are right on the bottom next to the brush.
