Crappie and Bluegill Trips

Crappie (aka specks, sac-a-lait) and bluegill (aka brim, sunfish) are abundant at Navajo Lake. These fish are known for their good eating, and slab-sized panfish are what we will be targeting. These fish are usually taken by vertical jigs near or under the boat. Crappie season is somewhat limited to February-May with their spawn peaking in April. I tie my own marabou crappie jigs before each season, and I have witnessed them outperform live minnows. The best bluegill fishing generally happens from mid-summer through December. A tungsten jig with a live worm or microplastic trailer is the ticket. It's fun, non-stop action for the whole family.

I offer half and full days of fishing for bass and panfish to anglers of all ages and skill levels.
All gear and tackle is provided. Just bring your snacks, fishing license, and your rain and sun protection.
