Crappie Fishing At Night Great Family Experience
Crappie Fishing At Night
The majority of crappie fisherman fish during the day when the fishing pressure is at it's highest and most of the slab crappie are deep in cover.
 
Now if crappie anglers would switch to crappie fishing at night they would find little fishing pressure and the big crappie are very active at night and not as wary. All you need to get started is some good to get started.

Actually, crappie night fishing anglers have used submerged light fishing to attract crappie at night for many years. The technology has advanced some, but the night fishing techniques are much the same.


The reason a light fishing submersible is so successful when night fishing for crappie is because it attracts baitfish. You will amazed at the swarms of bait fish that can be attracted by one of these night fishing lights. And we all know that where there are large numbers of baitfish there will be some great crappie fishing action.


The best time to go night fishing for crappie is on hot summer nights.The temperature of the water regulates the body heat of the crappie, remember crappies are cold blooded.
 
The crappie doesn't have a internal cooling system like we do and as result they are not active when it's hot outside, but when the water cools at night the crappie are on the move feeding.

Now if you really want to juice up your party try using a Coleman lantern. Get a clamping device that will hang your lantern out over the water that can mount to your boat, dock or something along the bank if you are bank fishing for crappie. Make sure you shield the light beam so it only shines out over the water.


The light and heat from the lantern will attract thousands of bugs, and you guessed it bait fish! And game fish! Make sure you bring plenty of insect repellent you will need it.
 
Now when you look down in the water where light is shinning you may see little fish swarming and concentrated in one area and this is called the "bait ball" Fish the area outside of the "bait ball" where there is less competition for your bait. If live minnows don't work use a jig, it will stand out.

If you want to increase your crappie catch you can use the combination of your two fishing light sources to your advantage. After you have positioned your lantern drop your under water fishing light as close to the center of your lantern's reflection on the surface water as possible.
 
Just remember you still have to do some pre-planning and find a good crappie night fishing spot that is located near a know crappie habitat area.

Crappie have a distinct advantage over the bait fish at night because of their keen color vision at night. Most bait fish cannot detect color at night and do not move or react as quickly as the crappie or other game fish can at night.
 
The crappie can wait patiently just outside the beam of your submerged light fishing and attack the bait fish and feed at will because the bait fish cannot react quickly enough the escape from the crappie.

Blue and green fishing lights colors are the best choices when you go to select a underwater fishing light source. It has been known for decades that light attracts insects , some fish species and shrimp at night. But you may not know green and blue submersible lights will also attract zoo plankton which bait fish and insects will feed on.


A good propane lanterns are easy to find and purchase in most department stores for under 50$. Make sure you buy one that has a double mantle for more illumination power.
 
You can find quality submersible fishing lights on the internet for under 200$ Good submersible green fishing lights should include long power cables so you can suspend you fishing light at different depths. The light should also have quality battery clamps to attach to 12 volt battery such as a car battery.
