Masters' Secrets of Crappie Fishing

Click on Images to Enlarge

Neither rain, sleet, snow, dark of night, 100 degree heat or -10 wind chill will prevent John Phillips from crappie fishing. The author has caught crappie through the ice in Minnesota, in the sizzling sun of Florida, and in many of the states in between. Phillips has fished with most of the nation's best crappie anglers to learn their secret strategies for catching crappie year-round under every type of weather and water condition. Those techniques and experience are detailed in this book for the enjoyment and success of enthusiastic crappie anglers.
