Love them Crappies

Don't overlook these popular panfish when you hit the lake this winter.

There's nothing like a good crappie bite, especially if you're fishing with kids. The action is generally fast and it doesn't take that many to fill up the frypan.

The North American Fisherman crew headed north to fish with panfish guru Brian "Bro" Brosdahl, and the bite was on. Even though it was an early spring outing, the techniques for finding these slabs are just as relevant for winter.

So get out the crappie jigs, waxies, spider rigs or even minnows or nightcrawlers and get ready to heat up the fryer!
