Both species of crappie as adults feed predominantly on smaller species,
including the young of their own predators (which include the northern pike,
muskellunge, and walleye). They have diverse diets, however, including
zooplankton, insects, and crustaceans. By day, crappie tend to be less active
and to concentrate around weed beds or submerged objects, such as logs and
boulders; they feed especially at dawn and dusk, moving then into open water or
approaching the shore.
The Pomoxis species are highly regarded game fishes and are often
considered to be among the best tasting freshwater fish. Because of their
diverse diets, crappie may be caught in many ways, including casting light jigs,
trolling planer bobbers with minnows or artificial lures, using small spinnerbaits,
or using bobbers. Crappie are also popular with ice-fishers, as they are active in
The genus name Pomoxis derives from the Greek πώμα (cover, plug,
operculum) and οξύς (sharp). The common name (also spelled croppie or
crappé), derives from the Canadian French crapet, which refers to many
different fishes of the family Centrarchidae. Note that the plural form of the name,
crappies, tends not to be used, by analogy with fishes, except to refer to types of
crappie. Other names for crappies are papermouths, calico bass, strawberry
bass, white perch, specks, speckled perch, sac-a-lait (in southern Louisiana),
rock bass and Oswego bass. Crappie are tasty and lots are out there to catch
with planer bobbers.
Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among
the most popular is called planer bobber trolling for crappie a method
characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away
from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ
the planer bobber Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits.
Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crankbaits or live
minnows. Anglers love crappies. Though the walleye is the state fish, crappies
and bluegills are caught most often. Crappies bite readily and produce sweet-
tasting fillets. There are actually two types of crappies: the black and the white.
They are tough to tell apart. Both travel in schools and feed on small fish and
aquatic insects. If you catch a crappie, it's most likely a black crappie, which is
the more widely distributed of the two species, occurring in most lakes
throughout the state. The black crappie prefers deeper, cooler, clearer water
than the white crappie does.Crappie fishing with planer bobbers is catching on.
|How to Troll for Crappie with planer bobbers.
Trolling for crappie is one of the very best and easiest ways to
catch these tasty fish all year long. A few simple steps can be
easily modified for any lake where crappie live.
Determine the depth the crappie are using. You can do this by looking at your depth finder as you
crappie fish zig-zag slowly along. Crappie hang out in schools and crappie will appear as Christmas Tree
shapes or lots of streaks of crappie.

good swimming movements in the water. Start by tying two 1/16-ounce jigs to your line, about eighteen
Jigs and grubs are ideal crappie lures for planer bobbers.
Most people like to use a different color grub on each CRAPPIE jig, and experiment until they discover what
the crappie like best that day. Good colors to start with include chartreuse, green, black/green/blue, and
Get the boat moving at about .8 to 1.0 miles per hour.
Cast your planer bobber and jig and grub set-up out and let out about 35 feet of line, then close the bail.
Put the rod in a rod holder or at least set it down and secure it so it can't be pulled out of the boat.
Watch the rod. If the tip starts to twitch hard or the rod bends, pick up the rod and start reeling.
Crappie aren't called "papermouths" for nothing. Don't horse the fish and use a net if it's a big one.
If you aren't catching fish, you are probably fishing too deep. Crappie feed up, so it's better to be too shallow
than too deep.
Using Planer Bobbers For Crappie
Using planer Bobbers for other types of fish is not a new tactic but is relatively new in the arena of
crappie fishing. For years, Northern anglers pursued steelhead, salmon and lake trout with planer
Bobbers under various trolling tactics. Saltwater anglers also have used planer Bobbers to provide
spread to their trolling baits. The fishing line is attached to the planer Bobber by means of a tube
release. The purpose is to move baits out away from the boat to prevent spooking wary fish that are
reluctant to feed in the motor wake.
Planer bobbers in freshwater applications evolved into modern planer bobbers that attach directly to the
fishing line. This enables the angler to run more than one board on each side of the boat.
Planer bobbers are constructed with a snap swivel to allow the board to break away and not provide
additional resistance while fighting the fish, but still remain on the line.
There are several benefits of using planer bobbers in place of or in addition to conventional trolling.
First, planer bobbers allow a more precise presentation of bait, live or artificial, in areas where stumps
trees or rocks would not permit a boat mucharea to troll. Like when crappie are holding in front of a row
of boat docks. Running a line of planer bobbers up tight to the boat docks allows a pinpoint presentation
while you run the boat several yards out in front of the docks. It’s much easier to position the planer
bobbers to run parallel to a boat dock or wall rather than maneuver the entire boat.
Heres a great tactic to troll a crankbait or jig over a drop-off in clear water without the boat spooking
fish.” ues a planer bobber.
A planer board helps the angler to set a more precise depth to troll baits out away from the boat. It’s a
good idea to be familiar with the depth of water the fish are holding in when using planer boards. Set the
amount of line out to allow the bait to swim through the strike zone along the entire trolling run.
