Trolling on priest again today and slaughtered the crappie. Caught some stripe and small mouth as well as large mouth as well. Crappie all day even in the middle of the day.

Throw that bait caster out with a deep diving bandit and pull it 20 feet behind the boat. Troll between 1.5 and 2.0. And just watch the rod tips.

The crappie and stripe are in 12 to 16 foot of water. I try not to run below 12 foot of water. Don't like snagging brush piles.

Did not catch a crappie under 10 inches. Caught most in the 13 inch size.
I mean SLABS!!

Anyhow I don't mind sharing info and am glad someone shared this info with me.

The strike king pro series. Or Bandit.
Seems like the Tennessee shad color pulled more fish.

I believe we are running the 400 series. I will double check. Just buy the one that gets you down 12 to 14 foot.

The 200 and 300 series are normally the best ones for crappie fishing. The 300's will get to about 18-20' with enough line out.

The one in the video looked to be a 300.

never heard of a strike king bandit. the guys that I know of that troll use a 200 series bandit, not sure what color.

I caught bass well over the weekend and one place I caught a couple of crappie on the biggest fat free shad, one was 14" and the other was 17".

Saturday I only caught just over 20 bass but had several 3's, 3 just over 4 lbs and 2 were close to 5 and one almost 6 lbs. Good school in about 16' to 17' of water. First school of good bass I have found on Priest in several years. Sunday found another shcool in about 9 to 10' of water, had several measuring fish and one that was 23" but looked like it hadn't ate in several weeks.

It is not a strike king bandit. It looked like he had some Bandits and some Strike King crankbaits. We have been pulling cranks for crappie for about 8 years now. It is my most preferred method in the summer, if not night fishing.
