Cloud cover is great because crappie feed better during lowlight conditions.  You will also find crappie moving into shallower water on cloudy days.  Crappie that are found in 15 to 25 feet of water will often be found in water that is 5 to 10 feet deep around cover.  During the summer and fall, some schools of crappie will stay in deep water, but they will usually feed more aggressively and for longer periods of time than when the sun is out.
