Early Spring Is The Best Time To Learn How To Fish For Crappie Details Here!
by: Mark Fleagle

How to fish for crappie
Crappies move from coldwater wintering haunts to spring foraging areas during this period of transition. In the North, this period begins at ice-out, as the waters climb into the high 30 degree range, usually this happens sometime in April. In the south , crappies move from deep water to coves and the back ends of creek arms as the water warms into the low 40 degree range., usually sometime between late February and the end of March. It is very important that you understand the trend of these migrations if you intend to learn how to fish for crappie.

In large lakes and reservoirs across the country, it is typical for crappies to stage and suspend over depths of 20 to 40 feet, somewhere beyond the first drop off leading into shallow zones they later use to forage and spawn. Learning how to fish for crappie can be simple if you identify the location and suspended depths of these fish in early spring. In reservoir, this typically takes place in creek arms. Look into areas near the mouth of shallow coves and bays or shorelines that have reeds or wood cover in lakes. In small lakes or ponds, it is not uncommon for such staging to take place over the center of the deepest hole on the lake. If you want to learn how to fish for crappie, head to these areas.

During warm, stable weather and particularly on sunny days, crappies are drawn into the shallows to feed in dark muck bottom bays, old reed beds, around brush piles, and fallen trees, or in the best habitat they can find. It is easy to learn how to fish for crappie in the early spring because they are feeding aggressively. Channels, boat canals, cuts, harbors, and backwaters draw crappies too, and are great places to learn how to fish for crappie. This time of year it is very important that you understand you must find shallow wind protected areas because they warm much quicker then the main water areas of any water impoundments you plan to fish. These areas will be like a magnet for bait fish also. When the fish move to shallow water in the early spring it is because the crappie are extremely hungry and need to replenish themselves from the long winter season. Early moves to water less than 10ft deep are tied to foraging and have little to do with the pre spawn activities,!
and crappies are hungry in the spring and this is is a excelent time to learn how to fish for crappie, and the first order of business is to compensate for the energy deficit brought on by simply surviving the extremes of winter. Sometimes crappies eventually spawn in the same general area, but often not.

Lakes and reservoirs with lots of shallow protected habitat promote these shallow feeding binges. The best bays, coves and cuts are shallow, usually no deeper then 10 feet The best harbors, canals, and channels are closed, with only one way out or in. Open channels allow currents to develop, and strong winds blow the warm water back out into the lake. These areas concentrate fish, but crappies tend concentrate in early spring anyway. Lakes without shallow protected areas may take several additional weeks to draw shallow movements by crappies. Crappies in early spring will stage and suspend just outside protected shallow areas in 15 to 40 ft of water and go into feed when the sun warms them during the day, and you can check out how to fish for crappie during these periods.

Waterless Hibernation of Fishes is Good for Business

Waterless Hibernation of Fishes is Good for Business
by: Ollie Style

Boni Comandante from Dumagete City Philippines discovered how fish can hibernate from six hours to twenty four hours thus being able to transport live fish cheaply and effectively.

He discovered how fish can hibernate while in Palawan. Comandante threw a fish in an ice chest and six hours later he saw the fish in a suspended state. At that moment he knew that what he just witnessed means big bucks. But it took him fourteen years to fully develop his discovery. In 2004 he won a competition by DTI [Department of Trade and Industry] and later was able to attract local and foreign investors for his fish marketing business.

He called his technique of putting fishes in a suspended state— Buhi Technology. The fishes are preserved longer and are less stressed because of the absence of water. The tail and the fins of hibernating fishes lie flat while transporting it and then are later on revived with sea water. Another good thing about Mr. Comandante's method is that it reduces the cost of ice and water which cuts up to seventy five percent of delivery cost.

There is no need to worry about safety, the Bureau of Fishers and Aquatic Resources declared that the fishes are safe for human consumption because all the materials used are organic.

This is certainly good news for Filipino fisher folks as the demand for live fish is growing here and around the world, and with the help of Buhi technology a boom in the fishing industry might just be around the corner.
