i would find a creek that feeds into a lake near you. Right now is a real good time to catch them from the bank besides during the spawn.

I concur. Take a small jig 16" below a bobber and cast it next to ANYTHING you see ( above or below the waterline).

You can also use a crappie rig with minnows below a bobber.

Good luck, and let us know how it works out.

I have always thrown a bobber with a jig under it, throw it close to trees, brush and watch the bobber, move it slooooow.

Good luck.

Same jigs you would use on any lake, and around the type cover and structure described in previous posts on this thread, and presented in the manner recommended.
FishinAholic just posted a video of creek fishing with jig and bobber in the bank section. That is a turorial on this technique if I've ever seen one! Fish on nearly every cast, all sizes!
