It’s crappie time in Michigan

The best crappie fishing in Michigan occurs in the spring when the fish move shallow. Jigs tipped with plastic or live bait will attract the attention of both black (shown) and white crappies.
Spring is crappie time in Michigan. Fishing for the prolific panfish is available year-round, but they are pretty well down the list of preferred spices except in spring. There are several reasons for that; chief among them is that they are far more difficult to pattern than their peers. Crappies have more of a tendency to suspend than other panfish and about the only time you really know where they are is in the spring, when they’re in the shallows to spawn.
