It’s crappie time in Michigan
Spring is crappie time in Michigan.
Fishing for the prolific panfish is available year-round, but they are pretty well down the list of preferred spices except in spring. There are several reasons for that; chief among them is that they are far more difficult to pattern than their peers. Crappies have more of a tendency to suspend than other panfish and about the only time you really know where they are is in the spring, when they’re in the shallows to spawn.
