Bull Shoals - Freshwater Fishing Report

As you may already know, the crappie can
be very picky at times so you never know
what they will be in the mood for when
you head out. By having different
colors, styles and sizes on hand you can
switch around until you discover which
one is getting the most bites. This way,
you can get the most out of all your
fishing trips.

Tips for Presenting Soft Plastic Lures
There are many soft plastic lures that
are excellent when it comes to crappie
fishing but the lure itself is not
enough to get the results you want. Your
presentation is the main thing that will
make the difference between a successful
fishing trip and one where you end up
going home disappointed. Your main
concern is to make the lure move in a
way that resembles the real thing.

When the bait is moving backwards or
flying through the water at unbelievable
speeds, the crappies are not going to
strike at it. In fact, they are sure to
swim away as fast as they can.

Practice reeling in the lure at
different speeds and try different
techniques until you find the ones that
get the best results. Learn a little
about the type of lure you are using and
this will help you know how it should
move in order to resemble the real
thing. The more you practice, the easier
it will be for you to mimic the
movements so you can capture the
attention of the crappies easier and

Soft plastics lures are some of the best
inventions ever made. They are simple to
use and they work great. The next time
you go crappie fishing, give one or two
of the soft plastics listed above a try.
Most likely, you will be pleased with
the results. Have a great time reeling
in those crappies! Remember to check out
