So had a buddy give me a while mess of cool new hand tied jigs and I'm dying to try them out already tried a few with no luck yet . Any tips on how to Pop the jigs or just let them sit there do I tie one on or two ? Don't want to use a bobber but should I ? I'm fishin off a dock straight off the dock is prob only 7 ft of water smirk any tips would be great !

If I were fishing off of a dock for Crappie this time of year in 7ft of water I would fish straight down with a jig but I wouldn't get my hopes up too high. With the water temps being what they are currently , crappie are looking for the cooler water.Now would be the time to break out the float tube or Yak and get off the banks

That's what I was afraid of I've really only been able to catch them at night off minnows

Night time under a light is probably your best bet this time of year from a dock. They've been suspended on timber in deeper water lately. I've been catching them suspended at around 10-12' in 16-20' of water the last few weeks during the day. They move around a lot more at night.

Any recommendations on lights do you have a personal preference . I've made some bought some the ones I bought were kinda junk ones I made lit up everything but they always eventually filled with water And were toast

I've been using the submersible ones they sell at academy and haven't had any trouble yet. I can't remember the brand name. I picked up the 90 LED light version. I've used them from the bank while fishing on the coast. Just casted a spider weight past where I wanted the light and ran the light down the mainline on a snap swivel. The LED one's last a good while on a 12v deer feeder battery.
