Walleye and Crappie fishing

I love the taste of these two fish, and want to catch some of my own. What is your favorite times and choice of bait for both fish, what kind of waters and how deep? I'm not sure if the fish habits change with geographic s but, I'm in CO FWIW

For crappies there is no better secret weapon then minnows! that will be your best bet id say. If you have a boat try to get out around some rocks or maybe a fallen tree in the water, but for crappies its just as easy to fish them off the dock or off shore. Normally you will see a bunch of people sittin in one tight general location and id say thats where the crappies are. thats a good fast way to find them. But walleyes are more of a trick. Its lots easyer to fish this kind of fish trolling with a nightcrawler rig with a spinner or maybe as simple as a Rapala works. Troll slow and i have my best luck around here at this time in about 14 feet of water and about up to 20 feet. But for walleye cork and leeches work pritty good off the dam at night is a good trick if you cant get your hands on a boad....but thats just what works for me.

I don't know if geographic location makes a diff, as far as north fishing vs fishing in the south. I'm going to plan a trip here real soon, and I'll elt you guys know what happens . Thanks for the tips

I agree with silverbullet, I have caught way more crappie on minnows than anything else

Location doesnt matter as much as water temp.
Crappie spawn in 55-60 degree water, in Oklahoma this generally occurs in April.
They spawn in very shallow water. I have caught them in water that wasnt even deep enough to cover their fins.

I can't wait to catch some I haven't had any Crappie meat in a few years, and Walleye probably more than 15 years
