During the spring, fishermen plan fishing trips all over the country for crappie.  Kentucky Lake gets thousands of visitors in the spring time because the fishing is that good.  In the spring, crappie are very predictable.  Crappie will start to move out of deeper water as the water gets above 45 degrees.  As the water reaches 60 to 65 degrees, they will begin spawning.  They move along the shores to spawn and you can catch them everywhere that you can find cover with sand, rock or gravel bottoms.  Most spawning crappie are in less than 5 feet of water, which makes it very easy to find these fish.  Bays, canals, and shorelines that provide some protection from prevailing winds are good spots for spawning crappie.  The main lake points, humps and rock piles will hold some of the biggest crappie.
