It depends on the time of year and where you are fishing. If it’s a warm day, fish early or late in the afternoon to avoid high temperatures during your trip. But if you’re looking for good crappie action, don’t worry about timing–you can catch them anytime! The best way to find out what time is best is by asking around at local bait shops and tackle stores. Most fishermen will tell you that they go after lunch or just before dinner when conditions are right. To get the most interest from other anglers, be sure to ask whether they’ve caught any bass lately and how big their biggest one was!
