So I'm just getting into crappie fishing and having a blast but not a ton of luck. Been hitting local ponds around Prosper and Frisco. Anything I do catch is more luck than skill at this point. Also have a slip on Lewisville Lake but haven't tried fishing there yet. I've mainly been throwing strike king sausage head and spin baby's. Also started using minnows.

I'm catching them here and there but nothing is consistent. I've read they are normally in a school and where you catch one, you'll find more but hasn't been the case. I been out a various times of day also. What can I do to be more successful? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

There's so much to cover about crappie fishing, technique, locations, ect. Right before the spawn is a tough time to locate fish. They are moving every day and night. You're not the only person having difficulty locating crappie right now. And the recent arctic weather didn't help; disrupted the spring pattern totally. Things just now beginning to return to some type normalcy on some lakes. My best advice is hire a guide for one trip and ask a lot of questions or find someone willing to take you out and teach you. Fishing will get more consistent once the spawn has tapered off, first of May and going forward. Don't get discouraged. Plenty of seasoned fishermen struggle this time of year.

Plus #1. Also Crappie have patterns during fall, spring, summer, and winter ! I would suggest fishing with a guide and explain to him that you want a learning session. You can pick up some basic skills and learn about crappie. Also welcome to the TFF! thumb
