Fishing from the docks was prohibited from May 1 to Oct 31. I went and fished on the docks Monday night. I used my lantern and hung it over the dock in the hope that the light would attract crappies. I fished for four hours and didn't get a single hit from a Crappie. I did however catch one very small white bass. I tried all different techniques and different line depths. Can anyone tell me what I may have been doing wrong. Are the Crappies still biting. I saw a guy on the docks last year catching Crappies during the day. I bought a book at Wallmart titled Panfish. It talked alot about how Crappies are very easy to catch at night. Please help!!!!!!
