When fishing for crappie in the spring time, which do you prefer? Fishing around rocks or grass beds?

It depends on where the fish are. I would fish both and let the fish tell me where they are.

I assume you are refering to the spawn so IMHO let me say I have never caught Crappie in grass beds during the spawn.They are nestbuilders and usually prefer firm bottom to build their nest`s ie. sandy bottoms,gravel bottoms,dirt bottoms but not grass bottoms.Cattails are a PLUS if you have them on your lake! 2cents

I'm not picky. I'll fish whichever one of the two is holding crappies!

Is your question referencing bank fishing in the spring or boat fishing in the spring?

Either one bank or by boat. Just wanted to know if you had to choose between a rocky spot or cattails or grassy area, which would you prefer to fish first. I mean I fish it all, but for some reason I like fishing cattails.

thumb I second the cattails with Fishbonz. If you find the right patch of them you can load the boat.

If both held fish I would choose rocks but this is seldom the case. I fish were they are not were I want them to be.

I've had a lot of slabs come off of rocks but like some guys above mentioned, try them both and see where they are.
