Well the 2019 weather could not start much worse than it already has. The trout bite is still productive along the Mrgo but its about the only consistent place causing all the fisherman to funnel there also. So here at DockSide TV we have made transition to crappie fishing. This is one of our favorite things to do and for many reasons. The table fare of them is second to nothing. Also the serenity is as good as it gets. We don’t see a boat for weeks sometimes. South Louisiana has many places that hold crappie know as Sacalait around here but is probably the most under chased fish in our waters. Many want to do it but simply do not know where to begin. Well we are certainly not experts ourselves but after created the Matrix Mini we have made a diligent effort to sharpen our panfish skills. The best past about fishing crappie this time of year is that they excel due to it being their spawning season where these are the most difficult months for our costal fish. Places we fish is mostly off the Pontchartrian places such as the Tchefuncta River, Bayou Lacombe and Liberty all the way to the East and West Pearl River systems. They are a very finicky fish but once mastered it may be one of the most enjoyable ways to fish in the south. It really brings the kid out in you having a 12′ fish scream out drag as you use 6lb test and very limber rods. If you are looking for a new hobby to try watch all our DockSide TV crappie episodes due some research and get in on this fantastic fish we are so lucky to have in our eco system.
