White crappie, also known to some locals as a silver perch, and the black crappie, are delicious to fry or bake after a full day of fishing.

Year around they reward anglers across the United States and Canada with big catches, drilling through the ice to get to crappie in the wintertime and creating specialize crappie rigs to try out the rest of the year.

Crappie eat a wide diet in their freshwater habitats, sometimes going after small fish, crustaceans, insects and small zooplankton. They will go vigorously after your lure, sucking it into their strong mouths. Crappie normally don't grow over 2 kilograms so a light tackle rod provides the most sport in catching crappie.

They can be caught on a spinning rod or a fly rod many different ways, with the angler always moving and testing different methods to attract them. The nice thing about crappie fishing is the general level of success people have fishing for them.

They reproduce easily, live in everything from creeks to lakes and will go after most anything that wiggles and looks interesting to eat.

A must try if you are in crappie country!
