yeppers my secret is out ......one lil fella learned all my state park secrets for sure ......sometimes ketchn crappie is just about understanding the water body they live in ....lots of good anglers over the years have taken spankins at spots that are loaded with crappie only because they didnt know what the particular fish in that particular lake liked ....me included
i fished there for years and never managed a single crappie myself ....never even thought there was more than one or 2 in there ...
my bad for sure .....NOW ...pay attention to this yawl ...
SECRET revelation time ....i was actually trying to originally ketch bluegill ....
i had worms and cocktail cooked shrimp with me ....
my first fish of the day was a small crappie on a pc. a shrimp ....
my second 2 fish were larger crappie on shrimp as well ...NO JOKE !
so at that point i tied on the TEST jig and went to work on em ....
there are no real numbers of baitfish to the best of my knowledge in there and the crappie there feed on other items ....
sometimes worms are great for these particular fish and in this case i bet they was eating crawdads that day ....
never say never and never give up ...

When I was in New York State with my son and his family I took my grandsons to a state park for fishing.  It was a catch and release lake.  We ran out of the bait that I brought but we had plenty of hot dogs for the boy's cookout.   I cut one of them into pieces, figuring the boys could at least catch some bream on them.

You can imagine how surprised I was to discover that bass and crappie would bite on pieces of raw hot dog!

So now I take nothing for granted when it comes to what the fish will hit.  My wife said I shouldn't have been surprised, if the fish will hit on pieces of dead metal they certainly should hit on anything that is actually food.  :)
