Crappie Summertime Fishing Details For Night Fishing

During the summer period calico bass become less aggressive and to catch crappie you need to use some fishing savvy to locate the strawberry bass and to identify crappie baits that will work best.

The calico bass are less aggressive because the natural forage such as crappie minnow fry, insects, plankton , adult crappie minnows, shiners, fathead minnows, small crayfish are plentiful and the pole crappies can be more selective on what crappie baits such as crappie crank baits, crappie jigs, crappie jigs tipped with live baits that they will attack for food. The papermouths have replenished their energy levels from the winter and they are attacking anything that looks live food anymore. The white perch are much more selective during the summer period.

The sun is high in the sky and the dog days of summer have hit the environment above the surface, but the underwater world is in high gear.  During the summer period of the year thermo clines form in natural lakes and reservoirs.
