The crappie will start moving up to spawn in Alabama this month but will move back to deeper water as spring fades away.
In Alabama’s large reservoirs, crappie tend to avoid the deepest areas, preferring flats, humps and sloughs ranging from 20 foot or even deeper. Crappie are notorious for suspending and can be found anywhere in the water column depending on the conditions. Electronics are a must.
Once late-spring crappie are located, spoons are a great choice for targeting active biters. A lightweight spoon produces an enticing flutter on the drop.
St. Croix’s 28-inch Mojo medium-light is the ideal crappie spooning rod. It affords maximum lure feedback and strike detection with a wide variety of spoon weights while delivering a satisfying amount of power on the hook-set.
St. Croix rods are available at larger retailers like Bass Pro Shops and major tackle stores.
