If you want to consistently catch crappie, you’re going to have to fish deeper water on most lakes except for the spring time when they move in the shallows to spawn.  If a lake has good depth, expect to find crappie anywhere from 10 to 40 feet deep throughout the fishing season.  In the summer and fall, crappie are consistently found in 20 to 30 feet of water on many lakes and to catch them, you have to get your baits down there.  Most anglers will vertical jig for them, but you can also troll crankbaits, drift or slow troll with live baits.
