With all of the rain we've just had, here is a good article on how crappie behave and how to catch them in muddy water. A lot of common knowledge but some good tips in here Clicky

Great article, thanks for posting.

Being a bank fisherman new north texas and pretty much crappie fishing in general, I've certainly come to realize how many crappie are lurking in the shallow muddy stuff. With all the rain, the creeks and rivers have been very muddy at times. At first I became discouraged when water would change in my favorite spot, but decided to try anyhow and to my surprise there were still plenty of fish, seemingly easier to catch. Seemed like it helped me to start chunking a variety of colors until I got a thump.

I grew up fishing muddy water with menners on a 4/0 gold hook and a round red/white cork...all I knew was what I was taught; all crappie were tight to the brush/bank, menners worked best and anything over 8ft deep was a waste of time...Does THAT make ME an EXPERT TOO?

fish hooked hmmm partyon
