Crappie when?

Things change. The one thing that never changes is well, more change. For example, how we used to fish. Cane poles rigged with a gold colored hook were the norm. We fished in earnest for two or three months and then moved on to bass.

Now we fish for crappie year-round. Our cane poles are state-of-the-art, graphite poles. Driftmaster™ pole holders secure them in place. Any crappie angler worth his salt will only use Blood Red™ hooks nowadays.

Everything changes.
As kids, we used to peruse outdoor magazines as mom shopped, hoping for a crappie article to read. Now we just go to our laptop or tablet and download Crappie NOW. We can even join the forum at and make crappie friends.

The 53-year-old Road Runner Lure has changed. Some have prism eyes, needlepoint hooks, and a willow blade.

When it comes to crappie, change is good. No, change is great!
