View: 570The Ultimate Guide to Crappie Fishing was designed for novice and intermediate crappie enthusiasts who wish to learn specific techniques related to hooking these great game fish in the magnificent freshwater bodies of the USA. What is interesting is that every person of any age can learn how to fish for crappies because they are relatively small and, even though they put up a fight sometimes, they are easy to reel in. This is actually the easy part when you are fishing for crappies: reeling them in. What is actually more of a challenge is locating and capturing them. This book is divided into two main parts. Part 1: Getting Started with Crappie Fishing discusses the preliminary information that you will need to familiarize yourself with the fish itself, and the process of capturing it in the water. For more information on the two types of crappies that you can find in lakes and rivers, read the section "Meet the Crappie". For specific information on Pomoxis nigromaculatus and Pomoxis annularis, head over to next section "Black and White Crappies". I have also prepared a primer on the behavior of this type of fish. You can find that in "General Behavior of Crappies". For readers who are not very familiar with fishing and the terms used in fishing, you can consult "The Beginner's Guide to Fishing Lingo". You will also find really useful information about fishing rods and lines in the section "Basic Crappie Fishing Equipment". For more information on what type of bait to use when fishing for crappie, do read "Q & A: Crappie Baits and Lures". Part 2: Your Tackle Box of Techniques covers a lot of ground in terms of establishing your knowledge of crappie fishing itself. It can be frustrating to fish when crappies are lethargic (which happens when the water temperature is low, or if it isn't spawning season), so the first discussion in Part 2 will center around capturing non-active crappies ("Catching Sleepy Crappies"). You will also learn how professional anglers easily locate crappies in "How Pros Find Crappies".
