Catching crappie in hill land reservoirs

Hill land reservoirs much like flatland reservoirs hold large populations of crappie any trophy crappie will be there for the taking. Crappies have some amazing names that local fisherman have given them over the years such as calico bass, speckled bass, speckled perch, white perch, pole crappie, strawberry bass, and paper mouth.

 Hill land reservoirs have many fingers and branches that originate from the main basin of the original river channel. These reservoirs are much deeper that flatland reservoirs but they are not as wide because these reservoirs are constricted by the adjoining hills. The main creek or river channel will not be located close to shore. Use your depth finder , a good topographical map to find the orginal channel, then record the gps coordinates for future use. The creek arms are full of sunken timber are white perch magnets.The water color in these waters can range from clear to a greenish tinge to even stained. The color can vary on the season of the year. Because rainfalls in the spring will turn the water color murky.

Catching crappie in these lakes can be easier if you know where to go. The  paper mouth in these reservoirs will migrate to new locations with the change of seasons. Crappie food will include small gizzard shad (in some reservoirs), small threadfin shad (in some reservoirs),crappie minnows,shiners, and insects. Crappie jigs with plastic grubs, or plastic tubes and tipped with wax worms will work fine for crappie bait when you fish near submerged timber areas in the creak arms. You can also catch crappie in the original creek channel using crappie live baits such as small gizzard shad, threadfin shad, crappie minnows, shiners, or small crayfish. You will want to use multiple crappie rods rigged with various crappie baits fished at different depths. Once you start to catch crappie anchor off and reset all your crappie poles to the depth and the bait you caught your first papermouth. You can also use ultra light crappie crank baits trolled or casted casted along the edge of structure such as sunken timber or drop offs.

Durring the spring and summer large crappies will follow shad schools and feed almost entirely of fresh shad as their diet. If you you can find the shad schools you can have great success catching crappie. Some of the most popular crappie jigs you use are Gum Drop Tubes,Micro Jelly Jig,Bailey’s Crappie Magnet,Micromini Jig, and Mizmo Mini Tube.
