Dock Crappie

Site Sponsor
This past weekend, the conditions weren't ideal to get out on the water in the boat, so we decided to just fish off of our boat dock. Glad we made that decision as we caught enough sacalait to make a meal. Most people don't realize that crappie (sacalait) will stack up underneath boat docks when water is rough and sun is shining bright. The water underneath docks are somewhat calmer, breaking up the waves. The cool snaps have the shad moving, so we opted for shad looking lures such as the Cajun Lures Slim Jimmy in Salt N Pepper color. We started out throwing a Green/Chartreuse tube, but they stopped biting that quickly. After that we switched to the Slim Jimmy and we finished out the morning with it. We rigged it on a 1/32oz jighead to keep it light around the dock. Heavier weights will get hung up easier. The crappie will start stacking up even more in the next few weeks, as long as the weather stays relatively cool. Enjoy the video and find some Slim Jimmys here:
