crappie in winter

When surface water temperatures slide into the mid-to low 50’s and below, every crappie that wants to see the New Year will have left shallow water locations and moved to more comfortable digs in deep water. They do so to escape the rapidly changing surface conditions brought about by the passage of strong cold fronts and because their food supply, primarily threadfin shad, also migrate in order to survive the winter cold. This migration is predictable and usually starts with the first major front that arrives around Thanksgiving. Fishing tips forum
