Wondering if anyone has any thoughts on how to target Crappie when they are intermingled with other warm water species in the same space. I like to keep a few predatory fish in the tank at home just to watch them do their thing. Last year I had a LMB, Pumpkinseed, Brown Bullhead, Yellow Perch, and Sculpin. Every few days I buy 20 goldfish, drop them in the tank, and enjoy the spectacle. I'm determined to add a Crappie this year, but haven't located any in my local haunts. Until today, that is. I fish a tiny seepage pond on the way to work most days for a few casts coming and going. This morning, instead of my normal retrieve, I put a soft hackle under an indicator and let it drop. Where I have only gotten LMB so far, I picked up a little crappie this morning. Didn't even know they were in there. Next fish was another LMB. I couldn't keep the crappie cause he wouldn't survive the day at work in my bucket in the car, but I want to get another on the way home. I'm just wondering if anyone can suggest anything with regard to time of day, depth, pattern, presentation to entice crappie that are in the same small pocket of water as bass? I know they are rubbing shoulders down there cause I took the crappie from the same square foot of surface area that I have been taking LMB. Or do I just keep casting till I get lucky? Thanks!
