Hi Italo,Do you know if the crappies are out in the shallows in Rice Lake, and what time of the day is the best time to catch.? What are the best crankbaits and soft baits to use?Thank youPosted on April 19th, 2015
Yes, they are. You can catch them all day long, but early morning & especially at dusk will be best (and even after dark). You can cast small crankbaits like the Rapala Ultralight series , but most anglers fish a 1/8 oz. jig with a 1-2″ plastic grub. The TriggerX like of “creature-grubs” is a really good choice fished on light line and under a slip-bobber.
