Crappie fishing St. Lawrence river

For best results create your crappie brush farms in three different depth locations. Mark your locations to sink brush in the shallows, mid depth locations, and deeper water. I would suggest you build and sink your artificial crappie structure in areas that are not accessed easily by other fisherman. Make sure you drop your brush when no fisherman are watching. If your honey hole gets a lot of fishing pressure the crappie may move out to other fishing locations. I always look for places that would not interest casual boaters. You are probably asking why? Well by using three different locations you create crappie honey holes for different parts of the fishing season. I you can find a spot where the bottom starts deep and gradually goes to shallows you can build your three locations inline. Just mark each location with a GPS point, that way you can come back again and again without wasting any precious fishing time. If you have young children this is an excellent way to get them interested in fishing. Kids are impatient, but if you take them to a honey hole where the action is almost instant, you will nurture their interest in a wonderful sport.
This technique will work no matter where you are located at. Crappie love brush and structure as their habitat no mater what part of the country you live in. Make sure you check with your local laws to find out what is legal to sink for structure.
When fishing for crappie we have all heard people say that patience pays when fishing. Unfortunately that is not correct when fishing for crappie.Crappie are a schooling fish and it is important to find these schools. So when your fishing for crappie it is very important to be on the move constantly to find the crappie schools.
When you locate a crappie hole your instinct tells us to get as close to the crappie as we can.The water is clearer however we have low water levels on the St. Lawrence river so far this year and fishing is great. The bass and pike are always looking to feed and make catching them easierer. Because the zebra mussels have cleared up the water, weed beds provide good cover for bass and pike, shoals offer good bass fishing this time of year. Both the largemouths and smallmouths are on the rocks and weed beds.
