Magic Crappie Tree

Steven Kriete

Crappie are an interesting group.  When you find one, you find many.  With the wide array of fallen trees dotting the Lake Lure shoreline, they do not all hold crappie.  So what does it take for crappie to be on such a tree?  What I jokingly call magic crappie trees require a few criteria.  They need to extend out over an extended expanse of water.  They need deep water close at hand.  It is best when there is current constantly providing a conveyer belt of food.  Finally, it is best when there are few to no bass on the tree.  Research suggests that trees tend to be one or the other, bass or crappie but not both.  Here is a specimen from a magic crappie tree.
