I remember as a kid fishing in the river with minnows and catching bucket fulls of crappies. As of late i been fly fishing using all kinds of differant flies.(muddlers,clousers,nymphs,bugs and dry flies) I havent caught one on the fly though. This spring I was fishing with my wife, and I hooked one. It jetted under the floating dock I was standing on. I saw it on the opposite side that I was fishng but it got off. I do know they become more active in the cooler waters. Just wondering if there is a prime time to fish for them, or are they always there just not as active? Also any tips on flies to use? heard of crappie candy, were gonna make that soon but any other suggestions? I bet a Crappie will fight like soldier on the fly!!
