Bobber Trolling Technique for Big Crappie

Pros4- 1Source's Keith Worrall offers tips to catch shallow water crappie on crank baits trolled at 1 1/2 miles an hour in the prop wash behind the boat under a bobber. By using a bobber you can control the depth you want the crank bait to be in and use deeper diving crank baits that may have more action than traditional shallow water crank baits will. This technique works great when fishing open water crappies in depths from 4 to 10 feet of water.
