How To Catch Crappies When Ice Fishing

Crappie fishing is a very popular fish to be after when ice fishing inland lakes and rivers. First of all, when crappie fishing, you’ll want to have your jigs roughly two feet off the bottom. A great setup to utilize is a slip bobber with a glow jig and a crappie minnow. I like to hook my minnows under the back, so the minnow sits in the water horizontally. You’ll then drop your jig down until your bobber stop hits the bobber which you need to set the depth. When you’re getting a crappie bite, the bobber will typically bounce a few times and then go down slowly. When you set the hook and reel, do it gently. These are a few things to be thinking about the next time you’re out crappie fishing.
