Summer Crappie Fishing
In Many areas of the country the department of natural resources will create fish attracting structure for anglers, they uses concrete blocks with re-bar and other misc. material. Both Artificial or natural structure is great for summer crappie fishing. What the state DONR is attempting to do, is to create cover that is close to that of natural cover. Many of these areas hold allot of fish and are fun to fish, both during spring crappie fishing and summer crappie fishing. Use the following methods during the summer months to fish around artificially created structure, and natural cover.
Remember : Crappie love cover, so fish around any structure... Natural or man made!

Step#1 Get about 75 ft of 1/2" dia anchor rope and slide your anchor into the water, somewhere around close to 75ft from the structure you are about to fish. You want the wind or current to push your boat towards the attractor.(If you are not in a boat , get an anchor rope, tie an anchor to it , and throw it out there... you will see why in a moment)
Step#2 You can use your normal summer crappie fishing rod and reel setup, and for bait you can use "grass shrimp", if available or "Missouri minnows". When baiting up, make sure most of the hook is hidden inside the grass shrimp.
Step#3 Tie a 1/2" long bass sinker to the end of your fishing line.
Step#4 Tie a number 4 Aberdeen gold hook about 6 inches above the sinker at the end of the line. Bait this hook with (2) grass shrimp, or (2) Missouri minnows.
Step#5 If you are in a boat, drop another anchor to keep the boat from being blown all over the place.
Step#6 Cast your bait as close to the anchor line that you can without getting tangled. Reel in slowly, then "pop" (jerk your wrist) gently.While you are reeling in try to stay as close to the anchor rope as you can. Make sure you continue to "pop" the bobber as you reel your line in.
You see, Crappies love to hide in the shadow that is created by the anchor rope. This method can be used when you go summer crappie fishing or spring crappie fishing where there is artificial or natural structure.
