because Im playing with Kevin Garnett Im just looking forward to being there forever Milwaukee was a great situation too but Im just going to be at Minnesota with Kevin Trot tines a prime way to hook crappie Have you ever heard of a trout line I have many times and Im sure you have too First off as far as I know there is no such thing The proper word is trot line r A trot line is a single line run horizontally with many stagings small drop lines with hooks that are primarily used to catch cat fish Trot lines are a great way to catch fish for many reasons First off trot lines have lots of hooks bait ed giving you greater odds of getting bites Secondly a line which is properly secured on each end keeps the bait in a specific area without moving The numerous hooks allow anglers to use a variety of bait After doing a little research I found one of the fishermen named A L Byrd and asked him to explain his system v usesa trptline due to the simplicity and safety in setting and removing the line Any trot line will work but most of the time I run lines by myself and regular lines are just too hard to work with The EZ Trot is the safest and easiest to use especially for the guy who trotiines by himself I really discovered catching crappie by accident Years ago Id go for catfish and alternate baits on my lines Id use large minnows and shrimp Sometimes I couldnt get large minnows and would use small and mediumsized ones Thats when I started catching crappie Occasionally Id catch a crappie on every staging that had small min now This was especially the case in the summer when the crappie moved to deeper Byrd told me that he still catches some catfish on his lines but crappie make up most of his catch The best places for these minnow baited trot lines are running parallel to submerged grass lines river channels and deep tree lines Summertime is die best time of year to catch crappie using this technique Dont be surprised to catch some good sized bass on these lines Byrds largest bass to date was a 10 pound lunker that he caught while crappie fishing For more information on the EZ Trot Line call 713 9233977 Keith Warren is the host of The Texas Angler television
