Shallow water crappie fishing is some of the easiest and most fun type of fishing in the spring.  Crappie move into the shallows in the spring and the fishing can be very good. Anglers target the wood laydowns, brush piles, docks, weeds and rocky shorelines in search of these crappie moving in to spawn.  Once water temperatures move into the upper 50s, you can expect to start seeing crappie move into the shallows and as water temperatures climb into the low 60s, you should see very good numbers of crappie in the shallows.

After the spawn, the shallow water fishing for crappie can be very hit or miss.  Most of the big schools of crappie and the larger fish will go deeper from summer through fall.
