A variety of good crappie fishing videos are available on SportsmansParadise.com, as of 2015. Several of the videos give detailed instructions and tips on how to catch crappies. Some of these videos are from non-professionals who enjoy the hobby, while others are professional productions with pro fishermen.
Crappies are a species of schooling freshwater fish related to sunfish. Because they eat a wide variety of prey, they are attracted to several types of lures, including minnows, jigs and spinnerbait. Crappies are popular for game fishing, not only for their pleasant taste, but also because they are active year-round. They do not go into hibernation during the winter, making them popular targets for ice fishing.
