Tips for Crappie Fishing Trips

Dec 12, 2007
Planning your crappie fishing trip means planning an outing where you will relax, enjoy the nature around you and get some great fishing in. When you are planning to make this the case, there are various things that you need to take into consideration before you get started.

The fact is, just about any location in the United States or North America, for that matter, has a lot of crappie fishing to offer to you. This is one of the most sought after and well loved types of fishing available to you. What's more, once you start planning a trip for these fish, chances are good that you will find yourself in a great position to catch them if you have planned for it in advance.

Fishing for many species of fish practically begs for anglers to have a boat. One of the best things about fishing for crappie is that most fishing areas in the United States give anglers access to crappie rich fishing areas where not having a boat is not a handicap. This makes crappie fishing particularly attractive to those who do not have access to a boat, and those who like to get out and throw a hook in the water with a minimum of fuss. This fact alone makes choosing the best place in the United States to fish for crappie almost impossible. Really, such an undertaking would be daunting for the most experienced, widely fished anglers in the world.

The best solution to not being able to find a single, perfect place for which to fish for crappie, is to simply determine what it is you are looking for, and to decide for yourself what location best fills your needs and personal preferences in a crappie fishing location. Some suggestions include these places other crappie fishing enthusiasts have tried and come back to time after time might be a step in the right direction as far as choosing some great crappie fishing locations.

Arkansas, known as "the natural state" is a naturally good area for crappie anglers. In particular, Bull shoals and Norfork Lake as well as Greers Ferry Lake are popular, large lakes with a rich crappie population. Smaller Beaver Lake and Fayetteville Lake, Sequoyah Lake, and Wilson Lake are also great crappie fishing spots. The Little Red River as well as the White River and the Arkansas River are more good crappie fishing locations in the Natural State.

Beaver Lake is located in Carroll and Washington counties, and the crappie seem to be fat and hungry in these areas. Greers Ferry Lake is located, for the most part, in Cleburne and Van Buren Counties, and its pristine shores, amenities, and abundant and varied fish population make it a local favorite for all types of fishing, and crappie is no exception.

Lake Bob Kidd in Washington County is another place known for excellent crappie fishing in Arkansas. In Izard County Diamond Lake near Horseshoe Bend is also popular for crappie anglers.
