Crappie Fishing on Lake Greenwood

Jay Bruce from Greer and Carolyn Reeves from Landrum are tournament crappie anglers that fish for crappie year-round. Two things let you know that they are passionate about their fishing: they buy their minnows buy the pound, and they invented a color for Kalin's Triple Threat Grub called RED HOT MAMA.

The day that we fished on Lake Greenwood the water temperature was 62 degrees. We were fishing small minnows with 14 ultralight nine foot rods on spider rigs. Spider rigs are T-bars that let you fish up to four rods per T-bar. On the rods were small spinning reels with four-pound test line. We were “tight-lining” that day; meaning that we fished straight down with no float and just a ˝ ounce sinker and a #2 drop shot hook.

For this type of fishing, Bruce said that boat control was essential to putting fish in the boat. We did not anchor up, but using the trolling motor, we got right on top of the brush pile and caught fish. That day we were fishing brush piles that were in twenty feet of water and 14 feet deep.

To keep from scaring the crappie, Bruce would back off the brush pile after after caching a fish. This enabled Bruce to consistently catch fish on each pass and not scare them. Obviously for this type of fishing, a good fishfinder/GPS chartplotter is needed to find and stay on the fish and a remote control trolling motor is essential for boat control.

By the end of the morning, we had put several crappie, largemouth bass, and small stripers in the boat. So take these tips from two passionate crappie anglers, boat control and spider rigging are the ways to put fish in the boat.
