Crappie Fishing For Slabs



Hello Neighbor,

I love crappie fishing for slabs when I'm ready to eat some fish. It is great fun to cruise the lake and apply the Crappie Fishing Techniques and Tips that I'll be sharing with you here on the web site to pull in the big daddy ...the Crappie Slab.

My proven knowledge will give you the best chance to catch your limit then go have a fish fry with what you and your buddies caught. 

Grab your favorite drink and stay awhile to learn more about catching the crappie slabs.

Add my web site as a favorite site to come back because I'll be adding more crappie fishing techniques and tips, equipment reviews, tips out of Steve's tackle Box, and what's happening in the live and artificial bait department. 

In my part of the country, we are blessed to have numerous lakes, rivers and ponds within three hours of Memphis, Tennessee like Sardis Lake in the picture.

Sardis Lake is known regionally for great crappie fishing. Every year in February and March, you'll see plenty of Missouri tags on cars on the North side of the lake at the boat ramps near Holiday Lodge. Someone from Missouri said "Show Me" and now, they are believers in the crappie amounts including slabs that come out of the lake.

While I love just getting out on the water and enjoying nature like many of you do as well, I'm always wanting to find the slabs and I do find them.

Now, it's your turn to learn the crappie fishing for slabs tips to land your share.

Actually, I live to get out on the water. There is nothing better than cruising the lake to look for the right place to drop the hook and wait for that massive strike.

Crappie Fishing Factors

Crappie Fishing Tips and TechniquesWhat is the best time of day to try for the slab? Where do they hang out? Do weather fronts affect the fishing?  

Many factors will contribute to and play a major factor in your success.

  • Using the right bait rig 
  • Proper casting techniques 
  • Correct water temperatures 
  • Analyzing the lake's terrain and structures visually and with electronic equipment 
  • Proper trolling equipment and techniques 
  • Even your boating techniques will play a major role 


Creating the right combination of factors increases your chances of catching enough crappie for a fish fry.

Visit the different sections of my website to learn more about each of these factors that will contribute to your success and the factors that, in my opinion, do not play a role in landing the crappie slab.

I'm always trying out new bait rigs, different fishing equipment and writing new fishing articles so keep coming back to read my recommendations on what actually works.

My web site information and articles cover the sport of fishing which includes fishing tips, stories and fishing awareness programs such as Fishing For The Physically Challenged Population, "Take a Kid Fishing", Take A Senior Citizen Fishing and "Let's Get The Lead Out".

I'll also be providing any information about government fees and regulations that impact and prevent anglers of all ages from fishing.

Get out there and catch your limit today!

Keep The Hook Wet!
