well this guy bye the last name of hartman came two are school a while back and talked about warmwater fish and mentioned crappie and that it was a easy fish to catch so i want to try for em and pepole say a bobber and worm are good so i want to know if anyone has fisshed them at blue lake and if so how highe do i put the bobber how far do i cast what type of pole do i need
Bobber and worm is "okay" for Crappie. But, you'll catch more bluegill than crappie.
I MUCH prefer Crappie Jigs, instead of worms. Jigs are really cheap, and you can find them in any decent sporting goods department (Freddy's, Bi-Mart, etc).
Try different colors, and start about 3' feet under the bobber. Twitch your rod tip, let the jig sit. Wait 30 seconds or so, and twitch the jig again. Repeat.
Cast just a bit out from the shoreline, just past any weeds or brush. You should do fine.
REMEMBER: Crappie swim in schools. When you get one, remove it as fast as you are able. Then, re-cast your jig right back into the same spot/hole that you got the first fish. WHAM! There will be more.
P.S. Don't go after 'em w/ a 9 foot Salmon Rod and monster sized reel. Instead use the smallest / lightest rod and reel that you have. It will be MUCH more fun.
