My son, Joel, and I set out on a recent fishing trip to compare and contrast the bass-catching capabilities of Zoom Flukes and floating worms. With the test well underway, however, we became distracted by a smoking-hot crappie bite we just couldn't ignore.

In less than two hours, we put more than 40 in the boat, including one monster that did all it could to earn its freedom.

Be sure to check out the video for all the details. You don't want to miss this one!

Do you target crappie year 'round, or only during the spawn? If you simply can't get enough of the fish, what's your favorite way to target them during the heat of the summer?
