dw My method would be mark several places in an area where the crappiei were suspending. I would us the Capps and Coleman rigs to troll over that area targeting the way points you marked. Vary your speed .3 to .6 MPH and Set your poles at different depths unitl you get a pattern.
Does that help?

it does help. thanks ray. i'll use the same amount of weight, but vary the depth, speed and lure/bait. i'm used to catching them off of blowdowns so now its time to learn how to catch the suspended fish. i still owe you some pictures for the cap and i'm curious how your ice fishing trip went?

finally got my new predator on the water. marked a lot of suspended crappiei; 25'-30', some at 18'. i'm trying to come up with a way to catch those. i'm thinking c&c rigs. or can you suggest a better method?

Ray's picture

Yes. Very slow moving.

are the c&c rigs meant to be fished as vertical as possible?

A distinct layer of water where rising warm and sinking cold water meet but do not mix. It is a layer of water where the temperature changes at least one-half a degree per foot of depth. In many of our desert bass lakes, a thermocline often develops during the spring and breaks down in the fall. The colder layer of water is often lacking in oxygen, forcing most baitfish and sport-fish to the upper layer of water. Thermoclines can be so dense that they actually show up on sonar (fish finders and depth finders) as a thick, impenetrable line.
